Fantasy Tips of The Day
Nathan Ellis loves bowling at Hobart. In 19 outings, he has bagged 30 wickets, including the best figures of 4 for 27. Moreover, he is yet to go wicketless at the venue this season.
It has not been a very productive time with the bat for Ben McDermott lately. However, he has accumulated 888 runs at 39, including the highest score of 110* at the Bellerive Oval.
With consecutive centuries and a 36 in his very first game of the edition, it has been a hat-trick of appearances in the Ultimate Team for Steven Smith.
When these teams met earlier in the tournament, Hayden Kerr and Josh Phillipe were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team respectively.
Given the friendly batting conditions at the Bellerive Oval, 5 top-order batters, including 3 openers, have registered a half-century in the last 3 games.
There have been 2 four-wicket hauls at the venue in the last 3 matches. Interestingly, both belong to the seamers.
