Best economical pick – Adam Zampa's prowess in World Cup 2023 shines with 22 scalps, claiming wickets at a staggering rate of one every three-and-a-half overs, boasting an enviable average of 18.90. His pivotal all-round contribution was pivotal in Australia's triumph over England at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023, solidifying Zampa's status as a match-winner with both ball and bat.
Top captains & vice captains – Mitchell Marsh, fuelled by an outstanding, unbeaten 177 against Bangladesh, cements his role as a linchpin for Australia. At the forefront of the batting charts, he's on the verge of a remarkable 500-run milestone. Marsh's versatility extends beyond his dynamic batting; his adept bowling prowess adds a crucial dimension to the squad. A genuine all-rounder, his skills make him an indispensable asset, defining him as a pivotal player in the team. Quinton de Kock became the first Proteas batter to score more than 500 runs in an edition of the ODI World Cup this year. He is just 82 runs away from matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most runs in an edition. De Kock has scored 591 runs in nine games at an average of 65.66 and a strike rate of 109.24.
Smart pick – Glenn Maxwell is definitely going to make a comeback in the playing 11 in this important. Maxwell has scored 397 runs in seven games at an average of 79.40 and a strike rate of 152.69. He has five wickets as well to his name.
Cautious Pick – Temba Bavuma has failed to score more than 25 runs for the Proteas in his last five outings and might not be the best pick for your fantasy teams.
My XI – Mitchell Marsh (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, David Warner, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Marco Jansen, Pat Cummins, Heinrich Klassen, Travis Head
