Fantasy Tips of The Day
Ashleigh Gardner’s venue stats are – in the literal sense of the word – staggering. She is the highest wicket-taker (14) and the second-highest run-scorer (234) at the Brabourne Stadium, achieving all this in a mere seven games.
In the previous clash between these franchises, Kim Garth (five for 36) and Sophie Ecclestone (two for 25 and 22* off 12) were the captain and vice-captain of the Best11 respectively. Moreover, Sophie is the only player from both teams to feature in the Best11 in all games of the edition.
Laura Wolvaardt’s recent form deserves a special mention. She has scored six fifties in the last seven outings – of which two have come at the venue in consecutive innings
Barring the opening game, Harleen Deol has not let fantasy players down, providing points one way or the other: 198 runs, a wicket, a catch, and a run out.
Tahlia McGrath has provided bonus points for a thirty once and a fifty twice, scoring the second-most runs (180 at 45) for UP.
Kiran Navgire and Grace Harris’ only fifty of the season came against Gujarat.
Alyssa Healy has been smashing runs at the Brabourne Stadium with ease and comfort, registering scores of 58 and 98* this season and ending up as a power player on both occasions.
Dayalan Hemalatha has managed a mere 44 runs at 11 in her last five outings.
In the last three games at the venue, all five fifties were scored by the top four batters and 22 of 37 wickets belonged to spinners.
