Section 7: Finding the fantasy value: 

Jasprit Bumrah: Indian batting lineup is giving you no confidence the way they have batted in the first two games. Of course, even bowlers haven’t performed well, but Bumrah is a far more reliable choice in this game and also has very good numbers at this venue. 

Bumrah at Abu Dhabi: 

Innings 11
Overs44
Wickets 20
Avg15.9
SR13.2

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Lokesh Rahul (chasing): Hasn’t scored runs in the last couple of games but is still India’s best batsman on current form. Rashid Khan will be a major threat against him once again, but he is likely to come after the PP. (Dismissed him in 3/5 innings in T20s & 1/1 innings in ODIs) Against Afghanistan, has scored a 60 & 30 in the two ODIs that he has played. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Virat Kohli (chasing): Always a very reliable choice while chasing & has been dismissed just once while chasing at this venue in the three innings that he has played. Has scored 67(63) in his only innings vs Afghanistan. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Rashid Khan (bowling second): Even in conditions where there will be a lot of dew in the second innings, Rashid Khan will stil be a very good captaincy choice. Has good numbers against majority of the Indian batsmen & also has very good numbers at the venue. 

Ishan, Surya & Jadeja are the only batsmen in this batting lineup who have never been dismissed by Rashid Khan in T20s.
