Fantasy Tips of the Day
The wicket offers some lateral movement with the new ball, but the true bounce rather makes the batters comfortable. Nothing but accuracy matters in Mumbai.
It was Sri Lanka’s top order and all-rounders that collected most of the fantasy points last year.
Smart Fantasy Picks for the Match
Dasun Shanaka has smashed the most runs (306) against India. With the ball, he has fetched 12 wickets, including the best figures of 3 for 16.
In the T20Is between these teams, Yuzvendra Chahal is the highest wicket-taker. He has managed 20 wickets in a mere 10 games.
In his last 5 T20Is against India, Wanindu Hasaranga has scalped 8 wickets. Above all, in his previous game in the Sri Lanka T20 League, he blasted 77* off 34. He will be itching to bat on the Wankhede featherbed.
Pathum Nissanka was the top run-scorer in 2022 for Sri Lanka. In 24 outings, he collected 713 runs at an impressive average of 31.
Speaking of top players, Suryakumar Yadav couldn’t have performed better last year: 1,164 runs at a strike rate of 187. More importantly, he will be batting at the Wankhede Stadium, where he plays the bulk of his cricket.
