Fantasy Tips of The Day
Before 2022, Alzarri Joseph took 36 wickets in as many games. However, his wicket-taking ability since then has significantly improved: 58 wickets in 42 games.
In the same duration, Axar Patel’s batting average shot up from 19 to 30. He also has venue numbers in his favour, scoring 195 runs at 39.
Wriddhiman Saha (129 runs and four catches) and Rashid Khan (six wickets and four catches) featured in the Best11 for five consecutive T20s.
In the only game Gujarat played against Delhi last season, Shubman Gill hammered 84 off 46 including bonus points for 12 boundaries. In his last 10 games, he hit two hundreds, a fifty, and two thirties.
David Warner’s numbers at the venue make a good reading. For an opener to average 31 in as many games is an impressive feat.
Chetana Sakariya’s death bowling – thanks to his variations – scales up his chances of taking more wickets. In his last five outings, he grabbed 12 wickets.
In his last 20 T20s, Rilee Rossouw registered only one single-digit score, overall hammering 697 runs at 37.
Mohammad Shami has taken a mere seven wickets in 15 T20s at the venue.
In the last three games at the venue, spinners accounted for 45% of the wickets.
