CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Bangladesh on June 20, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Bangladesh on June 20 Bangladesh must be oozing with confidence after their resounding seven-wicket victory over the Windies in Taunton courtesy of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s performance. Mashrafe Mortaza’s men comfortably won with 51 balls to spare, and it took them to the fifth position on the points table. The Tigers are next scheduled to lock horns with Australia on Thursday at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. As per head-to-head records, Australia has an 18-1 lead over their opponent in ODIs, having last played in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Over this period, Bangladesh has grown leaps and bounce and a cracker of a game can be expected. The Aaron Finch-captained Aussies, on the other hand, have looked good as well, having won four out of their five matches in the mega event. Their only blemish came against India. Best economical pick – Liton Das might have sealed his spot in the team at least for now after his knock in the last game. Even though he was batting out of position, he applied himself beautifully and remained unbeaten on 94. Bangladesh will be hoping for more of such exploits from him. Top captains & vice captains – Shakib Al Hasan is undoubtedly the most successful all-rounder in this World Cup. Having scored 384 runs at an average of 128, he hasn’t put a foot wrong with the bat in hand. Moreover, he has scored those runs at a strike-rate of 103.78, which shows the kind of form he has been in. He has also picked up 5 wickets with an economy rate of 5.84. Aaron Finch is in red-hot form and that can be comprehended from the 343 runs he notched thus far at an average of 68.60. The strike-rate of 110.64 also shows that he hasn’t allowed the bowlers to settle into a rhythm. Last time around, the Victorian tormented the Lankan bowling to notch 153 at the Oval. Smart pick – David Warner looked subdued when he started his World Cup journey. However, gradually, the Paddington-born is coming into his own. With 281 runs at an average of 70.25, he hasn’t had an indifferent World Cup by any stretch of the imagination. The 107 he got versus Pakistan will give him a lot of confidence. Cautions Pick – Usman Khawaja got a 42 against India, but apart from that, he has been a tad lacklustre. His batting position has also been changed on a number of instances. He has gotten into the double-digit scores but hasn’t carried on. My XI – Shakib al Hasan (Captain), Aaron Finch (Vice-Captain), Liton Das, David Warner, Steven Smith, Kane Richardson, Alex Carey, Mustafizur Rahman, Mitchell Starc, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs South Africa on June 19, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs South Africa on June 19 New Zealand started the 2019 World Cup on a grand note, winning three matches in a row. The victories were also resounding enough to give them a Net Run Rate of +2.163. Unfortunately, their last match against India at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham got abandoned due to frequent showers. Placed second in the table, the Black Caps are next scheduled to play South Africa at Edgbaston in Birmingham. A victory will help them regain the top spot. The Proteas, on the other hand, haven’t looked the most formidable by any means. After remaining winless in their first four games, Faf du Plessis and Co brushed aside Afghanistan by nine wickets (DLS Method) at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. However, the fact that their premier pacer Lungi Ngidi has been declared fit to play will give them a lot of confidence. Best economical pick – Andile Phehlukwayo has been the Proteas’ most formidable all-rounder in the mega event. He has got runs lower down the order after his team lost a flurry of wickets in the middle. Furthermore, he has six wickets with best figures of 2/18 against Afghanistan. Phehlukwayo is also South Africa’s most economical bowler in the tournament with an economy rate of 4.46. Top captains & vice captains – Ross Taylor has by far looked the most fluent batsman for the Black Caps in the mega event. In the two matches, he has batted in, the 35-year-old has scored 82 and 48 respectively. Over the last 12 months, he has performed exceptionally and is currently a stalwart in his team’s batting lineup. Taylor needs to carry on with his form in order for New Zealand to keep dictating terms. Faf du Plessis is a fulcrum of the Proteas batting lineup, but in the ongoing tournament, he has been a tad indifferent. He scored 62 against Bangladesh and could only manage 43 runs other than that. The South African batting lineup hasn’t looked at its very best and Faf needs to inspire the team. Smart pick – Kane Williamson has scored 119 runs in the World Cup at an average of 119. But, he hasn’t set the stage ablaze thus far as his strike-rate at 69.59 is pretty low. He has shown incredible levels of consistency in the format but needs to accelerate in order to give his team the momentum. He has to be on top of his game against a strong South African bowling attack. Cautions Pick – Hashim Amla hasn’t had the best of World Cups thus far by any stretch of the imagination. He has scored only 66 runs in four matches at an average of 22.41. His abysmal strike-rate of 54.09 is also a matter of concern. My XI – Ross Taylor (Captain), Faf du Plessis (Vice-Captain), Andile Phehlukwayo, Kane Williamson, Matt Henry, Imran Tahir, Trent Boult, Tom Latham, Rassie van der Dussen, Chris Morris, Colin de Grandhomme
