Fantasy Tips of The Day

Steve Smith has amassed 1,727 runs at 60 in England – of which 391 runs at 98 have come at the Oval.

When Shardul Thakur last played at the venue, he smashed fifties in both innings and picked three wickets. His ability to bowl the nagging lines, coupled with the late swing could make a big difference.

In the same match, Umesh Yadav took three wickets in each innings, dismissing the top-order batters in the first and cleaning up the tail in the second. Overall, he averages 24 in England – his best in SENA countries.

Pat Cummins has scalped 46 wickets against India – 24 of them at an average of 22.50 have come in the World Test Championship.

Cheteshwar Pujara has an encouraging record versus Australia: 2,033 runs at 51 including five centuries. Furthermore, he has already hammered three hundreds in seven innings in the ongoing English First-Class cricket competition.

Likewise, the Aussie attack has brought out the best in Virat Kohli, who has scored 1,979 runs at 48 and taken 25 catches. 

Nathan Lyon has picked 45 wickets in England. Against India, he has 116 wickets to his credit in 26 Tests.

Given Australia’s quality seam bowling and conducive conditions, Alex Carey is likely to generate handy points through his glove work.

After 13 Tests in England, David Warner averages only 26. He is yet to register triple figures.
