Fantasy Tips of the Day

For a change, Virat Kohli does not have great numbers at a venue. His scores read in Indore read 23*, 12, and 28. That being said, an average of 56 versus New Zealand and 2 hundreds in 5 ODIs in 2023 wouldn’t change fantasy players’ opinion.

In his only ODI at the venue, Hardik Pandya was the vice-captain of the Ultimate Team. He scored 78 runs and took a wicket.

Shubman Gill and Mohammad Siraj starred in the Ultimate Team in  their last 5 ODIs: while Gill ended up being the captain twice, Siraj was the vice-captain once.

None of New Zealand’s top 6 batters have scored a fifty on the tour yet. Michael Bracewell at No.7 has smashed a hundred and Mitchell Santner at No. 8 has churned out a fifty. Their batting, otherwise, has lacked substance.

Fin Allen has not been able to convert his starts into big innings of late. He has fetched a mere 95 runs at 19 in the last 5 ODIs.

Given the conditions, New Zealand may get tempted to play Ish Sodhi. It wouldn’t be a bad choice, though. His Ultimate Team percentage in the last 5 games reads 80.

In the last 3 games at the venue, spinners accounted for 44% of the wickets.
