Fantasy Tips of The Day
9 centuries have been registered in the last 3 Tests at Karachi.
In comparison to England’s seamers, the Pakistani counterparts haven’t delivered as per expectations.
Openers from both sides have been amongst the runs. They have been setting up the momentum at the top.
Babar Azam has added 216 runs at 54 in this series. At Karachi, he has accumulated 429 runs, including two hundreds and a fifty in 3 Tests.
Saud Shakeel is the leading run-getter (270 at 67) for Pakistan and has been a part of the Ultimate Team on both occasions. In fact, he is the only player to have registered 3 fifties in this series.
Zahid Mahmood and Abrar Ahmed are the leading wicket-takers in this series. While Zahid has bagged 12 wickets, Abrar has 11 to his credit. Given the abrasive conditions, the leg-spinners are likely to rule the roost.
With 357 runs at a staggering average of 89, including 2 centuries and a fifty, Harry Brook has provided the most points for the series from either side. He has garnered 31.5 bonus points only through boundary-hitting.
Despite taking the attack to the spinners, Ben Duckett has been able to contribute 249 runs in 4 innings, including the highest score of 107. His ability to score quickly has made a significant impact in fantasy leagues.
As far as the old ball is concerned, James Anderson and Jack Leach have responded in fine fashion. Between them, they have picked 16 wickets for the series. Simply put, they have been England’s go-to bowlers.
