Fantasy Tips of the Day
Although Sri Lanka managed to level the series and have given India a scare, their bowlers have been ordinary. It is their top order and Shanaka who have been providing the bulk of the fantasy points.
In 5 T20Is against India, Kusal Mendis has scored 203 runs at an average of 41 and a strike rate of 148.
Expect nothing less from Ishan Kishan. He is going to smash everything in his way. Against Sri Lanka, he has collected 164 runs at 41.
Suryakumar Yadav continues to be a hot pick in the fantasy leagues. After an ordinary start to the series, he made amends with yet another fifty. He has 2 fifties and a thirty in 4 innings against Sri Lanka.
Pathum Nissanka may not provide bonus points with strike rate, but an average of 29 is encouraging enough for fantasy players.
Dasun Shanaka likes hammering the Indian bowlers to pulp, scoring 407 runs and 16 wickets in 21 games. He also ended up scoring the fastest fifty by a Sri Lankan against India in the format.
Axar Patel has collected the most fantasy points (95) for India in the series. Both innings (65 and 31*) came when India were in a spot of bother.
Wanindu Hasaranga has featured in the Ultimate Team in 4 of his last 5 matches. Against India, he has scalped 12 wickets in 9 outings.
The last time Hardik Pandya batted at the venue, he hit 46 off 31 against a class-apart bowling unit of South Africa. Although he has not had a great time in the series, his dual skills keep him ahead in the fantasy race.
If not with the ball, Shivam Mavi contributes with the bat. It was his 26 that revived India’s hopes in Pune.
Umran Malik is a strike bowler through and through. With 5 wickets in 2 matches, he is the highest wicket-taker of the series.
