Fantasy Tips of The Day
At least one century has been scored by a batter in the last three ODIs at the Hagley Oval.
New Zealand have a formidable record at the venue, having won 8 of the last 9 ODIs.
Dew is expected to make its presence felt as the match progresses. Spinners will have their work cut out.
All eyes will be on Tom Latham, who arguably played the best ODI innings (145) of his career at Auckland. Furthermore, when he last batted at the Hagley Oval in the format, he scored 110 off 108 balls.
Kane Williamson was also a part of the Ultimate Team for registering 94* at Auckland. At Christchurch, he has slammed 3 half-centuries in 7 ODIs.
Lockie Ferguson and Tim Southee bagged 3 wickets each in the opening game of the series. For the year, they have picked 23 wickets between them.
Shreyas Iyer has been India’s best batter in ODIs this year. In his last 10 innings, he has accumulated 549 runs at 69, including one hundred and 5 half-centuries.
After being dismissed for a single-digit score in the first ODI, Suryakumar Yadav responded with a breezy 34* in the second game. Given his recent form and the confidence with which he has striking th ball, one can expect a bunch of handy points from him.
Shubman Gill has already added 95 runs in the first two games. In fact, he has been a part of the Ultimate Team for the last 3 ODIs.
Although Shikhar Dhawan has been mostly playing second fiddle to Shubman Gill, he has kept the fantasy players happy through consistent run-making. He has registered 3 half-centuries in his last 7 ODIs against the Kiwis.
