Fantasy Tips of The Day
Dayalan Hemalatha (50 runs) is yet to be dismissed in the tournament. Also, her strike rate of 139 is the best among Gujarat batters.
Shreyanka Patil featured in the Best11 in five of the last six matches.
Smriti Mandhana has been on a rampage of late. In her last five outings, she scored 199 runs at an incredible average of 40.
Ashleigh Gardner has been keeping fantasy players happy with her all-round skills. She has scored 113 runs at 28 and picked up five wickets in the last five T20s.
Harleen Deol has generated the 30-run bonus in five of the last 13 innings. In addition, she can provide handy points with stunning catches too.
In three matches across the Women’s Challenger and the current tournament, Sabbhineni Meghana has scored 99 runs at an average of 33 and a healthy strike rate of 150.
Heather Knight has had contrasting performances in the league thus far. However, the fact that she was handed the ball and took two wickets, in addition to smashing 34 runs, will keep her ahead in the fantasy race.
Meghan Schutt has gone wicketless in only two of the last nine matches, overall picking up 12 wickets. Above all, she has been impactful with the bat in this edition, registering scores of 30* and 20 at No.9.
Sophia Dunkley’s recent numbers are ordinary. She has aggregated just 57 runs at 11 in the last five matches.
Indian conditions haven’t yet suited Annabel Sutherland’s bowling: she has an economy of over 10 and a strike rate of 16.
Sophie Devine averages 15 with the bat in competitive T20s played in India and has a strike rate of 42 with the ball.
Nine 30-plus scores have been registered in the last two matches at the venue. Meanwhile, spinners have picked 48% of the wickets.
