Fantasy Tips of The Day
Both teams have a formidable pace attack. Given their recent exploits in Australia, they could make a significant difference in your fantasy teams.
At the time of chasing alone, 29 wickets have fallen in the last 3 games.
Anrich Nortje’s hostile spell is likely to rattle the struggling Pakistani middle order. When he bowled at the SCG a few days ago, he finished with figures of 4 for 10.
It was Lungi Ngidi’s four-fer against India that set up the game for South Africa. In 2022, he has taken 21 wickets in 11 T20Is.
Recent numbers (186 runs in 4 innings) suggest that David Miller has been successfully finishing games for his side. During this period, he has never been dismissed.
Rilee Rossouw has been see-sawing between ducks and hundreds. Amidst three scores of 0, he has also registered scores of 100* and 109. Incidentally, his last century came at the SCG.
One way or the other, Shadab Khan has kept fantasy players happy. For bagging consecutive three-wicket hauls, he has generated 66 crucial points.
Babar Azam’s numbers against South Africa make a decent reading. In 10 T20Is, he has amassed 410 runs, including the highest score of 122.
Powerplay, middle, or death overs, regardless of the situation, Haris Rauf has been the go-to man for Pakistan. He has picked 9 wickets in his last 5 T20Is.
Mohammad Wasim Jr’s pace, coupled with full-length deliveries, have reaped the desired results in this World Cup. In only two outings, he has 6 wickets to his credit.
