Fantasy Tips of The Day

Australian pacers love operating on the bouncy wicket of Brisbane. Their hostility is likely to bother the relatively inexperienced Ireland batters.

Given the lively conditions, the wicketkeepers from both sides are also likely to grab some catches.

Smart Picks

David Warner might have added only 20 runs in this World Cup, but he will be happy to return to the Gabba, where he slammed 2 half-centuries in his last two T20Is.

Similarly, Mitchell Starc will also carry happy memories of Brisbane. When he last bowled at the venue, he bagged a four-fer.

Curtis Campher and Marcus Stoinis have kept fantasy players happy through their multidimensional abilities. While Campher has provided 108 points, Stoinis has garnered 48 points for his efforts.

It was Andrew Balbirnie’s 47-ball 62 that helped Ireland beat England at the MCG. The fact that he doesn’t try anything cheeky makes him a safe pick. Moreover, he takes the onus upon himself to bat deep.

Besides inflicting 5 dismissals with the gloves, Lorcan Tucker has collected 119 runs in this tournament. His ability to play as per the situation makes him a useful pick in fantasy leagues.

Ireland will continue to bank on Joshua Little for regular breakthroughs. He has taken the most wickets (6) for his side in this World Cup. You never know what Glenn Maxwell might come up with. Against Sri Lanka, he generated 26.5 crucial points for picking a wicket and adding 23 (4 boundaries) with the bat.
