Fantasy Tips of The Day
Although Ebadot Hossain took 4 wickets in the first game, the Bangladeshi pace attack appears less potent as compared to their spinners.
Despite India’s rare failure, their batters have the ammunition and experience to make a substantial impact in fantasy leagues.
KL Rahul has played 2 ODIs against Bangladesh and on both occasions, he scored a half-century. For his cautious knock of 73 in the opening game, he was a part of the Ultimate Team.
Mohammad Siraj appears to be bowling with the required rhythm, momentum, and confidence. He has bagged 8 wickets, including two three-wicket hauls in his last 3 ODIs.
Aside from his weakness against the short ball, Shreyas Iyer has been a rock for India in the middle order. By the virtue of playing the ball on its merit, he has collected 294 runs at a whopping average of 98 in his last 5 ODIs.
Fantasy players were handsomely rewarded through Washington Sundar’s dual role. Besides picking 2 wickets, he added 19 with the bat. Overall, he generated 39.5 points for his effort.
Similarly, Mehidy Hasan’s cameo with the bat (38 off 39), coupled with the solitary wicket of Shikhar Dhawan created a massive impact in fantasy leagues.
As expected, Shakib Al Hasan was the stand-out performer (5 for 36 and 29 off 38 balls). For his match-winning heroics, he was the captain of the Ultimate Team.
For the year, Litton Das has been Bangladesh’s best batter in the format. In 10 ODIs, he has accumulated 300 runs at 68, including one century and four half-centuries.
Despite being dismissed for 18 in the opening match, Mushfiqur Rahim has scored 264 runs at 66 in his last 5 ODIs at Mirpur.
