Fantasy Tips of the Day
It is difficult to clear the long boundaries at the Adelaide Oval. The pacers hit fuller lengths, especially when the field is open, to produce catches in the deep.
Travis Head knows the nook and cranny of the venue. He has scored 232 runs in a mere 3 ODIs, including 96 off 107 against England. In 2022, he has smashed 310 runs at an average of 62 in 6 games.
Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins like feeding on the Englishmen. Between them, they have sniped up 57 wickets in 36 matches.
In his last ODI at Adelaide, Adil Rashid generated bonus points for a three-wicket haul. He is also England’s highest wicket-taker against Australia: 42 wickets in 24 games.
For Australia, Adam Zampa is the lone spinner. In 2022, he has picked up two three-fors, a four-for, and a five-for in 9 games.
England face the painful task of dismissing the duo of Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, who have a reputation for putting a price on their wickets. While Smith averages 55 at home, Labuschagne has already grabbed a hundred and 5 fifties in his short career.
Sam Curran, the Player of the Series in the T20 World Cup, will be brimming with confidence. He will bowl with both new and old ball, and has the highest score of 95* in the format.
