Fantasy Tips of The Day
Imad Wasim has been a hot property in fantasy leagues lately. In his last 11 professional T20s, he hammered 382 runs at a colossal average of 96 including the highest score of 92* and took 14 wickets.
So has Shadab Khan, who scalped 11 wickets, scored 146 runs at 18, and grabbed seven catches in 10 matches. However, his numbers as Pakistan captain are not impressive: no wickets in four matches.
Mohammad Nabi loves playing at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium where he has smashed 307 runs at 24 with the help of 20 sixes, and picked 13 wickets. In addition, he averages 44 against Pakistan.
Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have gone wicketless only once each at the venue, overall scalping 31 wickets at a strike rate of 12.
Saim Ayub has generated the half-century bonus in four of the last 10 matches, aggregating 304 runs at 30.
Ihsanullah has bagged 24 wickets at a strike rate of 12 in T20s played this year. During this period, he has bowled two maiden overs – some valuable fantasy points.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz has featured in the Best11 in four of the last five matches.
Nabi was the captain and Imad Wasim the vice-captain of the Best11 when the sides met on Friday.
Only one fifty has been scored at the venue in the last three matches.
