Fantasy Team

-Pat Cummins (Captain)
Hitting the right areas and back in form after a forgettable first outing, Cummins can pack a 3-fer on a usual day.

-Buttler (VC)
Buttler isn't the kind of player who stays silent for two innings on the trot.

Gill, Narine, Rana, Varun
Narine over Russell for bowling prowess and batting position.

Smith, Uthappa, Tewatia, Gopal
Uthappa is included because he will be facing his former franchise. These scenarios are always eventful.
