Fantasy Tips of The Day
Four centuries and as many fifties have been registered in the last 3 ODIs at Chennai.
6 out of 8 Bangladeshi bowlers, who rolled their arm over in the previous game, were specialist spinners. Given the spinner-friendly conditions, the tourists will continue to rely on their spin artillery.
For his sensational knock of 100 off 69 balls in the first ODI, Shahrukh Khan was the captain of the Ultimate Team. Only through boundary hitting (7 fours and 4 sixes), he generated 7.5 bonus points.
Mominul Haque might have been dismissed for 1, but he thrives on playing on the slow and low tracks in Bangladesh. Moreover, his conservative approach has often helped fantasy players in the past.
Although Bangladesh lost, Towhid Hridoy’s 74-ball 73 kept fantasy players happy. For his efforts, lower down the order, he provided the most points by a Bangladeshi player.
Before going wicketless in the second innings, Sai Sudharsan had already added 23 points by scoring 40 runs at the No.3 position. In the end, he too was a part of the Ultimate Team.
The visitors will bank on the experience of the premier spinner Taijul Islam. His ability to flight the ball, in pursuit of a sharp turn, should keep him in good stead.
