Top Picks for Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips:
Natalie Sciver is a fast-bowling all-rounder who can swing the ball and also score big runs in the middle-order, she has 240 runs and 2 wickets to her name in her short Test career, she also has a good record against India Women so she is our top pick for the captaincy in this match.
Mithali Raj is the star player not just in India, but at the world cricket level, she is one of the highest Test run-scorers in cricket, her career batting average is 54 and she also has a double hundred to her name.
Heather Knight will lead the English women team in the Test series, she has 370 runs in 7 Test matches including one century and 2 half-centuries. She is the best batter in the England squad and can also contribute with the ball. She also stands in the slip cordon hence a few extra fantasy points for catches may be scored.
Sophie Ecclestone is one of the finest bowlers going around in International Women’s cricket, she is a left-arm orthodox spinner who has the knack of taking crucial wickets, she will be very important on Day 3 and Day 4, she can score some handy runs coming at number 7.
Jhulan Goswami was the fastest bowler in cricket at her prime, she still bowls fast and has the ability to extract extra swing and bounce off the pitch, she also averages 25 with the bat and hence can be a very good differential pick in the grand leagues as captaincy.
