Differential GL C/VC choices

AUS - Aaron Finch, Steven Smith, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc

SL - Kusal Perera, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Charith Asalanka

My Fantasy Team (SL)
(Pre Toss)

Wk - Perera
Bat - Warner, Finch/Fernando/Nissanka, Asalanka
AR - Hasaranga, Maxwell
Bowl - Zampa, Hazlewood, Starc, Cummins, Kumara

GL Picks - Theekshana (if plays), Chameera, Shanaka, Rajapaksa, Marsh, Smith

Prediction - AUS to win.

GL Tip -
1. If AUS Bats first, keep Chameera+Kumara+Theekshana and try Stoinis in GL as well alongside others, and Zampa would be crucial while bowling in the 2nd Innings.

2. If SL Bats first, keep all the 5 bowlers from AUS with any 2 batsmen (excluding Maxwell) from them and try Shanaka in GL teams alongside either Avishka, Rajapaksa or Nissanka, and Theekshana will be crucial while bowling in the 2nd innings.

GL C/VC combos (RISKY) -
1. Starc+Cummins
2. Zampa+Theekshana
3. Hazlewood+Kumara
4. Finch+Warner
5. Asalanka+Shanaka
