Adil Rashid has taken only 4 wickets in his last 10 competitive T20s. On this tour, he has only 1 wicket in four outings.
For registering scores of 66* and 34, Paul Stirling was a part of the Ultimate Team in the last two T20Is. In the process, he also provided 8 bonus points for hitting 13 boundaries.
Liam Livingstone can provide fantasy points in every way possible. Against Afghanistan, he earned 26 points for scoring a 21-ball 29 and taking 2 catches.
By taking 4 wickets in the last two games, Gareth Delany has been a surprise package in fantasy leagues.
Amidst Ireland’s struggles with the bat against Sri Lanka, Harry Tector constructed a cautious 45 to seal his spot in the Ultimate Team.
For his all-round efforts (101 runs and 2 wickets) in this World Cup , Curtis Campher has provided the most fantasy points (93.5) for an Ireland player.
Mark Wood has been on a wicket-taking spree lately. In his last 4 T20Is, he has taken three three-fers and one two-fer.
For his match-winning spell of 5 for 10 against Afghanistan, Sam Curran added the most points (59) on My11Circle. Only once has he gone wicketless in his last 10 T20Is.
For his consistency, Dawid Malan remains a hot pick amongst fantasy players. He has accumulated 203 runs, including 2 fifties in his last 5 T20Is.
Since landing in Australia, Jos Buttler has smashed 2 half-centuries in 4 T20Is. In the format, he has scores of 22 and 46 at the MCG.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
If anything, Ireland’s batting has been erratic. On the other hand, England’s top order and seamers have been generating the bulk of fantasy points. Given the bigger ground dimensions at the MCG, the Irish batters might struggle to find the boundaries.
