IND vs SL Fantasy Picks 2nd ODI: From Dhawan to Dasun Shanaka 5 must-have players in your fantasy team: India’s next-gen stars Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan stole the limelight from exceptional bowling from all three spinners – Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Krunal Pandya – as the visitors obliterated 263 runs target in just 36.4 overs in the first ODI. Shikhar Dhawan (86*) might have finished as the top scorer for India but it was surely the Prithvi Shaw’s carnage (43 off 24) and Ishan Kishan’s first ball six that did all the damage to the hosts’ bowling attack.

Moreover, the two teams will square off again at the same venue for the second ODI tomorrow, and here, we look at five players who can turn out to be the game-changers.

IND vs SL Fantasy Picks 2nd ODI – 5 must-have players in your fantasy team

Shikhar Dhawan – The current India skipper played anchor innings of 86 unbeaten as he led his side to victory in the opening game. Dhawan is expected to play in a similar fashion in the remaining two games, dealing in singles and doubles and taking the minimum risk which makes him a safe pick for the second ODI.

Prithvi Shaw – Shikhar Dhawan’s partner in crime Prithvi Shaw played an entertaining 43 runs knock in the opening game yesterday that completely bulldozed Sri Lanka’s attack in the powerplay. Shaw’s aggressive approach with exquisite shots were the highlights of the first ODI and he is likely to proceed in the same manner in tomorrow’s game too. Apart from this, Shaw had an outstanding IPL season with Delhi Capitals where he amassed 308 runs at an average of 38.50 in 8 innings.

Avishka Fernando – The right-hand opener Avishka Fernando was off to a good start, scoring 33 off 35, in the first ODI but couldn’t convert it big. Fernando has been out of form lately- scoring 16 runs in 2 innings on England tour – but looked in good touch in his 33 runs knock. He has played 21 ODIs for Sri Lanka and has scored 702 runs at an average of 33.43, including two hundred and three fifties.

Kuldeep Yadav– Kuldeep Yadav had a point to prove when he was included in the playing11 in the opening game and he did it in style. The wicket at the R Premadasa Stadium offered a fair bit of turn in the opening game and the left-arm chinaman extracted full use out of it. Kuldeep Yadav returned with 2-48 in the opening game and is likely to do more damage in the second ODI, owing to the confidence level.

Dasun Shanaka – The Sri Lanka skipper has scored 48*, 47, and 39 respectively in his last three ODI innings. Shanaka was the second leading run-scorer for Sri Lanka in the recently concluded England tour, scoring 96 runs in three innings.
