Fantasy Tips of The Day
Interestingly, in both games, only the top three batters (Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy, and Tahlia McGrath) scored all the runs for Australia.
Given their dominance, the Indian bowlers have picked only 2 wickets.
With unbeaten knocks of 89* and 82*, Beth Mooney has provided the maximum fantasy points in the series till now. In the process, she has also added 14.5 bonus points for smashing 29 fours.
Not too far behind is Tahlia McGrath, who has accumulated 110 runs in the series, without being dismissed. For her consistent performances, she has been a part of the Ultimate Team on both occasions.
Thanks to Smriti Mandhana’s match-winning 79 off 49 (9 fours and 4 sixes) at a strike rate of 161, fantasy players were showered with 55 points. Given her reputation and ability, her selection percentage for the series is yet to drop below 87.
Wicketkeepers from both sides have made a healthy contribution with the bat. Incidentally, both Richa Ghosh and Alyssa Healy have added 62 runs each. While Ghosh hasn’t inflicted any dismissals with the gloves, Healy has 2 to her credit.
