IND vs PAK Dream11 match top picks
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Mohammad Rizwan (73 matches, 2460 runs, SR: 128.06)
Mohammad Rizwan has been in fine form in the format, scoring 821 runs in 18 matches. Although he averages 54.73 this year, his strike rate is often on the slower side. However, Rizwan’s consistency and record against India should make him a top pick for your IND vs PAK Dream11 prediction team.
Top Batter Pick
Suryakumar Yadav (34 matches, 1045 runs, Average: 38.70)
Suryakumar Yadav is another top pick for your IND vs PAK Dream11 prediction team and for good reason. He is the second-highest run-scorer in T20Is this year, scoring 801 runs in just 23 innings. He has a T20I strike rate in excess of 150 and 10 scores of 50 or more in the format. Given his ability to play spin and pace well, Surya is one to watch out for.
Top All-rounder Pick
Hardik Pandya (73 matches, 989 runs, 54 wickets)
Hardik Pandya is perhaps India’s most important player given his unique skill-set. While he strikes at 148.5 with the bat, Hardik’s bowling prowess is bound to have a say in this game. Given his recent form and the conditions on offer, Pandya is a must-have in your IND vs PAK Dream11 prediction team.
Top Bowler Pick
Shaheen Afridi (40 matches, 47 wickets, Average: 24.32)
Shaheen Afridi is set to make his return to international cricket after suffering an injury earlier in the year. The left-arm pacer has a fine record in this format, picking up 47 wickets at an average of 24.32. The left-armer claimed three wickets against India in the previous edition and given his ability, Shaheen is a top choice for your IND vs PAK Dream11 prediction team.
