Sri Lanka A Tour of India 2019 – 1st ODI Fantasy Preview

Everyone has their eyes on the ongoing ICC 2019 World Cup but there’s no shortage of other cricket tournaments taking place, which includes Sri Lanka A’s tour of India 2019. It started a little over 10 days ago and India A were absolutely dominant in the two unofficial tests, winning the 1st by an innings and 200+ runs and winning the 2nd by 150+ runs. They now have another challenge for Sri Lanka A, as they play 5 unofficial ODIs.

India A has the advantage for a number of reasons including the home advantage and the fact that almost everyone in their squad was a part of IPL 2019, where they were up against some of the best players in the world. The pitch here at Belgaum seems to be good for batting and for the spinners. India A have made quite a few changes and you can keep reading for our complete Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the IND A vs SL A 1st ODI…

  • Anmolpreet Singh had 241 runs in 3 innings in the Test series.
  • Shubman Gill scored 296 runs in 14 games at IPL 2019.
  • Niroshan Dickwella scored 187 runs in 4 innings in the Test series.
  • 12, 9, 12, 6, 20, 13 – Ruturaj Gaikwad’s last 6 limited overs innings.

India A

Alright then. First name on my team sheet is Shubman Gill. He happens to be one of the best upcoming talents in India and I’d like to see him at the top of the order. Anmolpreet Singh is also a player you can pick, scoring a double century in the test series. Another must-pic is Ruturaj Gaikwad who has had a lean patch but is a quality player, who won his first IPL contract in IPL 2019. We also spoke to him about it and you can read about that here.

With the ball, Rahul Chahar was the undoubted best in the test series which shows there’s a lot of assistance for spin here. Mayank Markande missed out in IPL 2019 because of Chahar’s good bowling, but you can pick him here. Remember, Markande had 15 wickets in IPL 2018. Another must-have player is Shivam Dubey. He had a good MPL 2019 and also scored 34 runs to go with 6 wickets in the test series. He is a good captain option for this game.

Sri Lanka A

First man on my fantasy team sheet is Niroshan Dickwella. He has the most international experience in this SL A side, also narrowly missing the WC squad. He had 187 runs in the test series and is an explosive player in the limited overs format. Along with him, you can pick Danushka Gunathilaka in your team. Also with a lot of international experience, Gunathilaka is coming off 2 first-class tons in Sri Lanka, so you know he’s in good form even though he didn’t play the tests.

With the ball, Akila Dananjaya has caused havoc and ripped through the Indian senior team in the past. He only got the solitary wicket in his solitary test but he is a must-have here. With 6 wickets in the tests, Lahiru Kumara has proven his worth and will led the pace attack for Sri Lanka A again. Make sure he’s in your Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy team for this 1st unofficial ODI.
