Fantasy Tips of the Day
In the last three games, spinners accounted for 44% of the wickets at the SCG.
No batter from No.5 has scored a fifty this season at the venue. The top order generated the bulk of the fantasy points.
Sean Abbott is the highest wicket-taker at the venue. He has collected 66 wickets in 42 games. No bowler has managed even 40 wickets.
Andrew Tye’s strike rate isn’t less remarkable. He has scalped 19 wickets in 10 games, including the best figures of 4 for 21. To add fuel fire to the fire, his 31 wickets are the most for Perth against Sydney.
The top two run-getters at the venue will lock horns: while Moises Henriques has 921 runs to his name, Josh Philippe has smashed 8 fifties and maintained a strike rate of over 140.
In the T20s between these teams, Ashton Turner has blasted the most runs. In 22 games, he has fetched 437 runs at a strike rate of 150.
While batters from Perth have provided more fantasy points, Sydney’s all-rounders have been a delight in fantasy leagues.
