Fantasy Tips of The Day
Monank Patel (339 runs at 42) and Nisarg Patel (13 wickets at a strike rate of 19.8) are the leading run-getter and wicket-taker respectively against PNG.
Assad Vala loves plying his craft against the USA. Aside from being the leading run-getter (384 at 43), he has taken (seven) wickets and held onto 10 catches.
It has been a fruitful year with the ball for Semo Kamea, who has picked 18 wickets including two five-fors – of which one has come in the ongoing tournament.
Besides scalping seven wickets at the Wanderers Cricket Ground, Saurabh Netravalkar has taken 11 wickets with an impressive economy of 3.48 RPO versus PNG.
Only once in his 10-match ODI career has Ali Khan gone wicketless, claiming 20 wickets including the best figures of five for 20.
With the bat, Charles Amini and Norman Vanua average only 14 and 19 respectively versus the USA, but they have made amends by bagging eight wickets each and grabbing seven catches between them.
Gaudi Toka’s average for the last five games reads a paltry 16.
In the last three games at the venue, 53% of the wickets belonged to seamers and 31% went in favour of spinners.
