TFG Fantasy Picks for IND vs AUS
Rohit Sharma’s attacking ability in the first 10 overs is highly beneficial for the team to set up a big score on the board. His aggressive approach is unsettling for the opposition and the kind of pressure he puts on the opponent with his ball striking ability is immense .
Shubnam Gill is known to give a quick- fire start in the power play. His gap-finding ability in the middle overs, his ability to play spin and rotate strike makes him a must-have in the fantasy team.
Virat Kohli provides you with stability at the top order.
