Bumrah was right on the money in the 19th over as he conceded only two runs and took two wickets in his destructive over in India vs Australia first T20I.

Meanwhile, India had posted 126 after Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bowl first. KL Rahul, who was making his comeback scored a fine knock of 50 runs off just 36 balls. Nathan Coulter-Nile was the pick of the Australian bowlers as he scalped three wickets and conceded only 26 runs in his four overs quota.

India will like to make a comeback.

Glenn Maxwell played a brisk knock of 56 runs to rescue his team out of the troubled waters. However, Australia lost the plot of the target in the fag end of the match. But the visitors were able to get through after Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins got them through over the finishing line.

Here are Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy League tips:

First of all, it is crucial to select a team which has players who will surely play in the game. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room. Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you.

Secondly, it is pivotal to pick the right combination of captain and vice-captain. A captain gets twice the points whereas the deputy of the team will 1.5 times the points. Thus, it is imperative to select the big in-form players as your respective captain and vice-captain.

It is also crucial to get top order batsmen in the team as they are likely to score the major chunk of the score. Furthermore, it is pivotal to check the pitch conditions and select the team accordingly.

In fact, one can take a gamble of selecting a player who has less chance of succeeding in big leagues. Thus, that particular player has less chance of getting selected by other users. Consequently, if that player’s fires at all cylinders then it can be a big bonus.
