Smart Fantasy Picks
Basil Hameed not only generated handy fantasy points for bagging a three-wicket haul against Kuwait but also added bonus points for keeping the economy under 6 RPO.
Similarly, Akshay Puri of Singapore also helped fantasy players gain bonus points for maintaining an economy of 4.20 RPO during his two-for against Hong Kong.
Be it with the bat or ball, Rohan Mustafa often rewards fantasy players. In his last 5 appearances in the format, he has taken 7 wickets. With the bat, he has scores of 41, 9*, and 37*.
For 10 straight white-ball games, Ahmed Raza has picked at least one wicket. The UAE often rely on his slow left-arm orthodox for regular breakthroughs in the middle overs.
Rohan Rangarajan might have managed only 8 against Hong Kong, but his recent form suggests that he has been in great touch: he has added 175 runs in his last 4 List A matches, including the highest score of 87.
In his last 10 T20Is, Zahoor Khan has taken as many wickets, including the best figures of 3 for 29 against Ireland. He has the ability to operate with both new and old ball.
In the game against Hong Kong, Janak Prakash turned out to be the dark horse in fantasy leagues, courtesy 2 wickets and 31 runs with the bat.
Aritra Dutta was looking in fine touch before he was unfortunately run out for 29 (3 fours and 2 sixes) off just 16 balls against Hong Kong. Singapore will bank on him for brisk starts in the powerplay.
Fantasy Power Picks
Vriitya Aravind has been the best batter for the UAE lately. He has accumulated 242 runs, including one century and two fifties in his last 5 white-ball games. In the same period, he has also inflicted 7 dismissals through his glovework.
Although the UAE lost to Kuwait by a mere run, Chirag Suri’s 88 off 61 balls (9 fours and 2 sixes) changed the fortunes of many fantasy players. Overall, he averages 34, including 7 half-centuries in 25 T20Is.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
Focus on the experienced cricketers of the UAE, especially the ones who contribute with both bat and ball.
