Expert Fantasy Cricket Winning Tips:
Rashid Khan is always a handy pick so he should be in your team. With rain predicted, this could be a shortened game and then the likes of Banton and Lynn will fancy their chances. But the Gabba is a big ground and so the bowlers who have a pedigree like Siddle and Laughlin will come in handy.
Looking at the bowling line-up, the Strikers should start as favorites but if it is a shortened game then the Heat will start as favorites.
