Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Krunal Pandya are the three players around whom the whole fantasy team is to be built around.

All three of them are must-have players in you ProSports11 team and shouldn’t be dropped for any reason whatsoever.
India have a selection headache in the middle order as well with KL Rahul’s inclusion in the side. Karthik could be dropped to accommodate the likes of Vijay Shankar who in recent times looked in good form.
Fantasy Cricket- Players to watch out for
- Virat Kohli is a must-have in any fantasy side. His experience in Chinnaswamy Stadium is second to none and should be expected to come up with the goods.
- Jasprit Bumrah is an invaluable asset to team with his subtle variations and ability to nail the yorker sure to bring in a good number of points.

- Glenn Maxwell: Maxwell is capable of a huge knock that could have a big impact in the game and is Australia’s trump card in the middle-order.
- Mayank Markande : He could pan out to be a great budget pick for ProSports11 users as he gives you the liberty to free up some cash for the likes of Virat, Rohit etc.
