Fantasy Tips of the Day
Suryakumar Yadav’s scores in Ahmedabad read 57 and 32. Against New Zealand, he averages 52.
In 34 innings, Devon Conway has provided bonus points for 30 runs as many as 18 times.
Michael Bracewell is the only player in this contest to have an Ultimate Team percentage of 100 in the last 5 games.
In his last 5 innings, Deepak Hooda has taken 6 wickets in 9 overs. Given New Zealand’s vulnerability against spin, he has already bowled 6 overs in the series despite being the seventh bowling option.
Arshdeep Singh has gone wicketless only five times in 25 T20Is. Be it with the new or old ball, he often finds ways to be amongst wickets. After all, he strikes at 12.8.
Hardik Pandya’s numbers against New Zealand are disheartening: he averages a mere 18 with the bat and has taken only 5 wickets in 12 outings.
It has been 13 T20Is since Ishan Kishan scored a fifty. Since then, he has managed a mere 199 runs at an average of 15. To make matters worse, he averages only 17 in 6 games against New Zealand. He, however, has scored a fifty in two T20Is at the venue. Some respite!
Spinners have not had much success at the venue. 36 of 51 wickets belong to pacers.
