Fantasy Tips of The Day
Naseem Shah has featured in the Best11 in all the ODIs he has played so far. He has registered two five-fors and as many three-fors to bag 18 wickets in just five matches.
Matt Henry loves hunting down Pakistani batters. In nine matches, he scalped 20 wickets including a five-for and two four-fors. He produced 16 points for maiden overs and economy rate, and 32 for catches.
Piling up runs against New Zealand has been an easy task for Fakhar Zaman. He has scored 470 runs at 47. In three matches at home, he has scored a hundred and a fifty.
New Zealand batters are yet to find a way to deal with Shaheen Afridi, who has registered two four-fors and a three-for in four matches to collect 12 wickets, while also bowling five maiden overs.
Mohammad Nawaz has gone wicketless only once in 10 matches under Babar Azam, picking up 20 wickets in the process. During this period, he averages over 64 points per game.
Tom Latham, in the literal sense of the word, leads from the front. As a captain, he has scored 963 runs at 46. He has generated as many as 120 points for smashing boundaries and 248 for catches and stumpings.
He also brings the best out of Daryl Mitchell, who has scored 303 runs, picked seven wickets, and grabbed as many catches in 10 matches under him.
Henry Shipley (11 wickets) averages 65 points per game in his five-ODI career. As a result, he featured in the Best11 thrice.
