Fantasy Tips of The Day

Over the years, Shaun Marsh has taken a liking to the Adelaide bowlers. In 12 innings, he has collected 452 runs at 45, including the highest score of 99*.

When these teams met earlier in the tournament, Matthew Short was the vice-captain of the Ultimate Team.

In 3 visits to the Docklands Stadium this season, Sam Harper has slammed 2 half-centuries. He also smashed 63 off 36 against Adelaide earlier in the competition.

Although Aaron Finch was the top scorer 76* for Melbourne in the last game, he doesn’t have a great record against Adelaide: 102 runs at 14 in 7 outings.

A lean patch with the bat continues for Thomas Kelly. He has managed only 27 runs in his last 4 matches.

In the last 3 games at the venue, only one bowler (seamer) has managed to bag a three-wicket haul. Clearly, the bowlers haven’t called the shots.

In the same period, only 16% of the wickets at the Docklands have been picked by the spinners.
