India's star wicketkeeper has shown brilliant batting display in previous warm-up encounters against Bangladesh. India's stalwart batters Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, and Rohit Sharma are in excellent form and they have vast experience in ICC events, which might be helpful to grant major fantasy points. Meanwhile, Harry Tector has performed exceptionally well against India in previous encounters which is why he is preferred over his compatriot Paul Stirling. 

Hardik Pandya and Mark Adir are the best fast bowling allrounders in the squad which is a better choice than others, looking at the playing conditions. The bowling department looks pretty decent with Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj and Joshua Little.
