Fantasy Tips of The Day
When these teams met earlier in the competition, Alex Hales (83 off 52) and Sam Billings (49 off 38) were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team respectively.
Mohammad Nabi has taken 25 wickets at Sharjah, including the best figures of 4 for 12. He has also collected 523 runs at 24.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz averages 28 at the venue including the highest score of 84. Given his impact at the top, his selection percentage hasn’t dropped below 90 for the last 4 games.
It hasn’t been a productive season for Rohan Mustafa. With the bat, he averages 9. With the ball, he has managed only 3 wickets in 7 games.
Despite the smaller ground dimensions, only 27 sixes have been hit in the last 3 games. Shockingly, not a single maximum has been launched while chasing in the last 2 games.
In the same period, 5 half-centuries have been registered, out of which 4 have come while batting first.
All the 3 three-fors have gone the way of the seamers. The best figures by a spinner read 2 for 18.
