Fantasy Tips of The Day

Top Wicketkeeper

Jos Buttler averages a whopping 55 points against New Zealand, thanks to 702 runs, 30 catches, and four stumpings. For the year, he averages over 90 points.

Top Batters

Daryl Mitchell has scored three of his four centuries in the first innings, starring in the Best11 as captain more often when New Zealand has batted first.

Dawid Malan has slammed the most 50-plus scores (five) for England in 2023.

Devon Conway has hammered the joint-most hundreds (three), along with Mitchell, for New Zealand in 2023.

Top All-rounders

Ben Stokes has scored his most ODI runs (661) and taken second-most catches (11) against New Zealand.

Henry Nicholls is the only New Zealander to star in the Best11 in five of six matches on the tour.

Against New Zealand, Chris Woakes has taken 25 wickets, including four three-fors, in only 15 appearances.

Top Bowlers

Trent Boult has been in a sensational form of late, so much so that he took 23 wickets (72 points per game) in his last six professional limited-overs games.

David Willey averages 42 points through wickets against New Zealand, scalping two three-fors and as many two-fors in seven appearances.

Reece Topley’s best ODI figures of six for 24 came at the very venue.

Hot-and-Cold Numbers

In his last 10 ODIs, Joe Root has achieved three fifties but also has six single-digit scores, including two ducks, and a score of 11. To put it simply, his ‘Best11 percentage’ indicates a mere 30.
