Fantasy Tips of The Day
Adam Zampa has played most of his cricket at the MCG. In his previous 37 visits, he has bagged 49 wickets, including the best figures of 5 for 17.
Although Daniel Sams has taken 13 wickets in 10 attempts against Melbourne, he has picked only 3 wickets in 8 matches at the MCG.
When these teams met earlier in the tournament, Nathan Coulter-Nile (3 wickets) and Gurinder Sandhu (2 wickets 20 runs) were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team respectively.
Joe Clarke is the leading run-getter (377 at 31) for Melbourne this season including the highest score of 101*, which incidentally came at the MCG. Given his impact at the top, his selection percentage hasn’t dropped below 88 for the last five games.
Thomas Rogers is the only player from Melbourne to feature in the Ultimate Team in the last 4 games.
Given the bigger ground dimensions at the MCG, an average of only 4 sixes have been hit per innings in the last 3 games.
In the same period, three seamers have bagged a three-for or more at the venue.
