Fantasy Tips of The Day
In his last 6 T20s in Dubai, Alex Hales has collected 285 runs at 57, including 3 fifties.
Likewise, in his last 5 T20s at the venue, Sam Billings has accumulated 188 runs at 47 including the highest score of 54. In addition, he has inflicted 7 dismissals with the gloves.
Given his all-round heroics (76 runs and 13 wickets), David Wiese is the only player from Gulf to feature in the Ultimate Team for the last 6 games.
Chris Jordan has gone wicketless only once in his last 8 games. He is also the only bowler to take 4 three-fors for the tournament.
When these teams met a few days ago, Shimron Hetmyer (54 off 35) and Tom Curran (42 off 33 and a catch) were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team respectively.
All 5 half-centuries registered in the last 3 games at the venue have come from the middle-order batters.
In the same period, an average of 7.33 sixes per innings have been smashed.
