But, you can also go with Ferguson and Bhuvi, if you can compromise with anyone or even two all-rounders.
Wicket Keeper: Both Johnny Bairstow and Dinesh Karthik are good wicket-keepers but if Johnny Bairstow is included in the playing XI you can go with him because usually Karthik plays down the order and might not come to bat. Apart from them, Saha can also be included in the team in place of Braistow. Captain and vice-captain: Vijay Shankar, who was in superb form against Australia, can be selected as captain, on the other hand, Rashid Khan or Kuldeep Yadav can be selected as vice-captain for Grand league. While you can play safe by selecting any openers and middle order batsmen for Head to Head and small leagues. Go with your gut feeling.
