India Test Squad: Fantasy Tips

India's Squad for the Remaining Three Tests against England 2024

Rohit Sharma (capt), Jasprit Bumrah (vice-capt), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul*, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja*, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep

Notable Changes to India's Squad

Shreyas Iyer has been left out. He had back spasms a couple of days before and that may have played a part but that was not mentioned in the press release and so he is assumed to have been left out. Akash Deep, who had an excellent series against the England Lions, makes his way into the squad. Also, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja are in the squad but their selection is dependent on passing a fitness test.

India's squad suggests that there could be a number of changes in the playing eleven, if all players are fit. This is why you have to make sure to check the playing eleven on the day so that you can adjust your bets as needed. For the time being, we assume that India's playing eleven will look something like this:

Potential India Team Playing Eleven for 3rd Test

1. Rohit Sharma

2. Yashasvi Jaiswal

3. Shubman Gill

4. KL Rahul

5. Rajat Patidar

6. Axar Patel

7. KS Bharat/Dhruv Jurel

8. R Ashwin

9. Kuldeep Yadav

10. Jasprit Bumrah

11. Mohammad Siraj


What should bettors be aware of?

The Indian batting lineup could be strengthened significantly if KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja come back into the lineup. Rumours suggest that while KL Rahul will be back, Jadeja might take another Test match to recover. Also, Dhruv Jurel could replace KS Bharat in the team. 

Jurel is a very aggressive batter, particularly against the spinners. Sessions betting when Jurel is in could be very interesting as he will score quicker than the average run-rate. That may not be priced into the betting sites just yet. 

The surface in Rajkot is generally very good for batting. It will allow the batters from both teams to score heavily and it will be hard work for the bowlers.

This is a match where you want to load up on the batters. Outstanding bowlers like R Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah are a must-have in any team because they find ways to make an impact but other than that, look at including as many batters in form as possible. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, and KL Rahul seem to be obvious choices at this stage. 

A differentiator like Dhruv Jurel, who may not be very highly owned is also a good option.
