Fantasy Tips of the Day
The fantastic trio of Sikandar Raza, Craig Ervine, and Ryan Burl averages in the 40s against Ireland. Raza also maintains a similar record at Harare: 1,507 runs at 42, including 4 hundreds and 6 fifties.
Tendai Chatara’s three-for in the second game wasn’t a surprise, as he has a stellar record at the venue. In 28 games, he has taken 36 wickets with an economy of 4.8 RPO.
Paul Stirling is the top run-scorer for Ireland against Zimbabwe. He has hit 5 fifties – the most against any team. At the venue, he averages 33 in 13 games.
Harry Tector’s scores against Zimbabwe read 50, 55, 13*, 101*, and 75, thereby starring in the Ultimate Team four times.
Josh Little too likes playing against Zimbabwe. He has taken 9 wickets in 5 matches, not going wicketless even once.
In the last 3 ODIs at the venue, 35 of 46 wickets belonged to the pacers.
