Weather: Clear.

Fantasy Tips of The Day

Given the nature of the pitch the batters are likely to provide maximum fantasy points for the game.


Expect nothing but slam-bang brand of cricket from Ishan Kishan at the top. He was the highest run-scorer (313) in the Bangladesh series, including his career-highest score of 210.

For Sri Lanka, Kusal Mendis will take up the role of providing brisk starts. In 2022, he accumulated 388 runs at 49. With the gloves, however, he inflicted only 9 dismissals in 11 outings.


In the last home series in October 2022, Shreyas Iyer collected 191 runs in 3 ODIs, including the highest score of 113*. Against Sri Lanka, he has registered scores of 65, 88, and 9.

In contemporary Indian cricket, Virat Kohli (2,220 at 60) and Rohit Sharma (1665 at 46) are the leading run-getters against Sri Lanka in ODIs. Moreover, when these two last batted at Guwahati, they slammed 140 and 152* respectively.

Pathum Nissanka may not shower bonus points galore through boundary-hitting, but his ability to put a price on his wicket often helps fantasy players. In 2022, he smashed one century and 4 fifties in 11 ODIs.


Wanindu Hasaranga has picked only 4 wickets in 5 ODIs against India. However, he has taken 17 wickets in his last 10 ODIs. With the bat, his recent scores read 37, 21*, 66, and 2.

Dasun Shanaka tends to blow hot and cold in the ODIs. He has managed to get past the 30-run mark only twice in his last 8 innings. That said, after his heroics (23, 56*, and 45) in the T20Is, he is likely to remain a hot pick in fantasy leagues.

Be it with the bat or ball, Axar Patel has kept fantasy players elated lately. Besides registering scores of 64*, 6*, 1, 56, and 20, he has taken 8 wickets in his last 5 attempts.


For the last five ODIs, Mohammed Siraj has been India’s best strike bowler. For the period, he has bagged 11 wickets, including the best figures of 3 for 32.
