Fantasy Tips of the Day
Given the conditions, a spinner opened the bowling in 3 of 4 innings. Akeal Hosain, who has been bowling with the new ball, has already managed 10 wickets in a mere 4 games. He will be itching to bowl at the SCG.
Of the 21 wickets that fell in the first two games, 9 belonged to the spinners.
