Analysis

Having clinched the series already, West Indies have looked in a remarkable form throughout the series. Openers Evin Lewis and Lendl Simmons looked in good form in 4th T20I and thus, would be the top picks for batters from the Caribbean side. The latter can turn out to be a smart captain choice as well. Additionally, Hayden Walsh who has unexpectedly impressed the most in the series should be a must-have in one’s fantasy team,

Although the visitors have not looked in their best form in this series, one player who has performed in every game is all-rounder Mitchell Marsh. He single-handedly led the Aussies to victory in the last game and has been in a stupendous form in this series, which makes him one of the best choices for captain. Given that it’s a slightly inexperienced squad, Aussie skipper Aron Finch will also an essential pick in one’s fantasy team. Other picks from the Australian side could be wicketkeeper-batsman Mathew Wade and Mitchell Starc.
