Fantasy Tips of The Day
For 9 straight ODIs, Mohammed Siraj has been a part of the Ultimate Team. In this period, he has bagged 24 wickets, including 2 four-fers and 3 three-fers.
Similarly, Kuldeep Yadav hasn’t gone wicketless for 9 ODIs in a row. Against New Zealand, he has taken 15 wickets, including the best figures of 4 for 39 in 7 games.
Virat Kohli might have flopped in the previous game, but he has a staggering record against New Zealand. He has accumulated 1,386 runs at 58, including 5 hundreds and 8 fifties.
Although Henry Nicholls could add only 18 in the opening ODI, his numbers against India are encouraging. In 13 innings, he has collected 412 runs at 38, including the highest score 80.
Barring Rohit Sharma, every other Indian top-order batter has registered at least once century in the last 4 ODIs. In other words, between Shubman Gill, Kohli and Ishan Kishan, two double-tons and two hundreds have been slammed.
Given the batting friendly conditions at Raipur and the prowess of both sides, the batters are likely to generate maximum fantasy points.
