Fantasy Tips of The Day
For the year, Nicholas Pooran has collected 235 runs at 29, including bonus points for smashing 37 boundaries. In addition to his audacious strokeplay, he has pouched six catches and inflicted two stumpings.
Mark Wood’s only five-for in professional T20s came in Lucknow. Furthermore, he hasn’t gone wicketless for 11 consecutive games, generating an average of 64 points per game.
Such has been Shikhar Dhawan’s consistency in the league that he has accumulated 391 runs at 56, including three fifties, in his last 10 innings.
Arshdeep Singh is yet to go wicketless in 2023 and has already bagged 15 wickets. Incidentally, all his wickets (seven) in the ongoing tournament have been of the top-order batters.
When these teams met last year, Krunal Pandya dismissed Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Jitesh Sharma in quick succession. In his previous outing at the Ekana Stadium, he bagged a three-for and scored a gutsy 34.
In the same match, Kagiso Rabada was the power player for finishing with a four-wicket haul.
By picking 14 wickets in his last 10 competitive T20s, including two three-fors and as many two-fors, Ravi Bishnoi has helped fantasy players stay ahead in the race.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa has hammered 137 runs at 46 in his last five competitive T20s and garnered a 50-run and a 30-run bonus in the process.
Deepak Hooda has added merely 35 runs in this edition.
In the last three games at the venue, spinners took 45% of the wickets. Meanwhile, both fifties registered belong to the openers.
