Fantasy Tips of The Day
Given the reputation of India’s top-order batters and their impressive record against Bangladesh, they are likely to generate maximum fantasy points.
The Bangladeshi spinners have always enjoyed bowling at home. They could make a significant impact in fantasy leagues.
Mushfiqur Rahim has enjoyed batting at the Shere Bangla. His last 3 ODI scores at the venue read 84, 125, and 28.
On the bowling front, Mehidy Hasan has tasted success at the Shere Bangla. He bagged 7 wickets, including a four-for in the ODI series against Sri Lanka in 2021.
Virat Kohli displayed great form in the recently concluded T20 World Cup and given his ODI record against Bangladesh (3 hundreds and as many fifties), one can expect the juggernaut to continue.
Recent history also suggests that Rohit Sharma has taken the Bangladeshi bowlers to the cleaners. In the last 5 ODIs against them, he has accumulated 387 runs at a staggering average of 129.
Fantasy players will continue to expect handy points from the champion all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. Besides adding 145 runs with the bat, he has picked up 6 wickets in his last 5 ODIs.
Bangladesh will rely on Litton Das for a strong foundation at the top. He has slammed one hundred and 4 fifties in the format this year.
With 587 runs at 73, including 1 century and 6 fifties in his last 10 games, Shreyas Iyer has been India’s best run-getter in the ODIs in 2022. Need we say more?
Given the spinner-friendly conditions, Washington Sundar will have a big role to play. Aside from his impressive bowling against New Zealand, he registered scores of 37* and 51.
