Fantasy Tips of The Day

Angelo Mathews has been a delightful fantasy pick when facing New Zealand. He has scored 466 runs at 36, scalped 12 wickets, and pouched six catches.

Matt Henry loves hunting down Sri Lankan batters. In eight innings, he has scalped 21 wickets at a strike rate of 21, including two four-fors and a fifer.

Meanwhile, Ish Sodhi has scalped nine wickets at a strike rate of 27. Overall, he has featured in the Best11 in four of the last five matches.

Tom Latham averages 50 as a captain. Three of his seven centuries in ODIs have come while leading the side. At the venue, he has an average of 67 and a strike rate of 105.

Will Young smashed two centuries in the last three ODIs he played at home. During this period, he gave 28 bonus points for 21 boundaries.

Dhananjaya de Silva’s all-round ability can prove to be a boon for fantasy players: he has 194 runs, nine wickets, and four catches in the last nine ODIs.

Dasun Shanaka brings the best out of Pathum Nissanka. In 12 matches under Shanaka, Nissanka has generated a half-century or century bonus every other game, while also grabbing five catches.

Kasun Rajitha is a through-and-through strike bowler in the format, going wicketless only once in his career. In his last five outings, he took 12 wickets and hence made it to the Best11 in all these games.

Pacers scalped 70% of the wickets in the last three matches at the venue, while 12% were runouts.
