Section 7: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top picks: 

KL Rahul (chasing): Will be a default captaincy choice the way he has played in the warmups and also in his last IPL innings. Does really well while chasing recently, so if he chases, should be a very good captaincy choice. Dubai is the venue that he absolutely loves and has scored a lot of runs in the IPL. 

KL at Dubai: 

Innings 11
Runs606
SR146
504
1001
HS132*

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Jasprit Bumrah & Mohammad Shami (bowling first): If India are bowling first and you’re looking for bowling options to select as C-VC, Bumrah & Shami (if plays) will be quality choices. As discussed in the last section, Bumrah has done even better at this venue bowling second, so can be tried in second innings as well if you expect India to win. 

Shami bowling first at Dubai: 

Innings 9
Overs36
Wickets 14
SR15.4
BBI3/15

Bumrah bowling first & second at Dubai: 

Innings Overs Wickets SR
First 20815
Second1078.6

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Babar Azam: Always a very reliable fantasy captaincy choice, doesn’t score at a rapid pace, but is very consistent with runs, and that’s what matters for you. 

Recent innings (including warmups & National T20 Cup): 15, 50, 59*, 12, 105*, 16, 65 

While his opening partner, who has also scored very consistently, his form has dipped in the last 6-7 innings. Rizwan’s recent 7 innings: 19, 13, 17, 17, 40, 1, 6

Captaincy suitability: Both small leagues & grand leagues. 

Shaheen Shah Afridi (bowling first): New ball value + value at the death bowling first. Recent form has been brilliant. Infact, in his last 8 T20 innings, has been wicket less just once & has picked at least two wickets in every game. 

Shaheen recent innings: 2/30, 2/41, 2/30, 2/30, 0/48, 2/39, 3/34, 3/25 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Virat Kohli (chasing): Recent form hasn’t been great but will be facing Pakistan, and he loves playing against them in the World Cups. He is yet to be dismissed by any Pakistani bowler in a T20 WC game. 

Kohli vs Pakistan in T20 WC: 78*(61), 36*(32) & 55*(37) 

(All three innings came while chasing) 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Rahul Chahar (bowling second): If plays, can be a good differential captaincy choice in GLs considering how Pakistan struggled against Shamsi’s wrist spin. 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL
