CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 14 The India team continued their march at Port of Spain as the win has given them an unassailable lead in the 3-match ODI series. Though the Caribbean side put up a fight the visitors were equal to the task and grabbed all the important moments of the game. Till now Virat Kohli’s men have found answers to all the questions but the same cannot be said about the Windies team. They have struggled to match the intensity of their counterparts and now the series is at stake when they take on India for the final ODI at the same venue. Jason Holder’s arrival has lifted the spirits of the dressing room as the side tested the Indian team in patches. The batting was again a letdown as none of the stars took the responsibility of guiding the team. Best economical pick – With India yet to win the series, it is unlikely that he will rest himself. Shreyas Iyer must bat at four for India. He is an ideal person to bat at this position and rotates the strike well. Iyer has displayed his capability in the last match and should be given a long run. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma played an uncharacteristic knock in the second ODI and didn’t get the strike too often in the early part of his innings. Thus, he never really found the momentum and ended up playing too many dot balls. He is in terrific form and should look to make the best use of it. Moreover, he has got a point to prove ahead of the upcoming Test series. After 5 months, Virat Kohli registered an ODI century in the last game and it was a treat to watch him bat. The openers failed to deliver and there was a great responsibility for him. With the conditions being humid and the pitch not as easy to bat on, it wasn’t easy to get a big score. However, the Indian skipper pushed himself really well and played an excellent knock. Smart pick – Chris Gayle is in the last stage of his international career and he will want to sign off in style. At the start of the year, he made a statement with a couple of his knocks against England. Then in the 2019 World Cup, the southpaw failed to make his mark and his poor returns was one of the reasons why the team ended at the bottom half of the points table. Now he is the highest run-getter for the country in the ODIs and he will be keen to celebrate the record with a Gayle Storm. Cautions Pick – Shikhar Dhawan is yet to find his form back and hasn’t impressed on this tour thus far. The left-hander has had quite a few troubles facing left-arm seamers and has particularly struggled against the incoming delivery. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Chris Gayle, Rishabh Pant, Shai Hope, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell, Fabian Allen, Roston Chase, Shreyas Iyer, John Campbell

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Australia on August 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Australia on August 14 At Edgbaston, the Australian team burst the honeymoon bubble of the Brits. It was a terrific start to the most revered Test series in cricketing history, Ashes but the hosts ended up on the wrong side. The England team was always playing the catch-up game after losing their star bowler, James Anderson in the first session of the game. While the Kangaroos hopped all around the park and reached the finish line comfortably. Now for the second chapter, the teams will be penning their respective scripts at the historic Lord’s cricket ground. Joe Root’s men wavered against the might of Australians. Apart from a couple of individual brilliance the team never played as a unit. The Australian team showed their resilience and pinned down their opponents on their happy hunting ground. Especially Steve Smith who gave a fitting reply to the booing English crowd with his twin centuries. Throughout the game their pace battery was in full flow and their champion spinner, Nathan Lyon also stood up when the team required him. They don’t have major issues going into the Lord’s Test but they should not let their guard down against the wounded lions. Best economical pick – Rory Burn’s century will be a relief for the English camp as they have struggled to find a quality opener since the retirement of Andrew Strauss. His partner Jason Roy will be looking to make necessary adjustments for the red-ball cricket. Top captains & vice captains – Last time Australia played at Lord’s, Steve Smith scored 215 and 58 runs in two innings. The visitors also won that game by a mammoth 405 runs. The attacking opening batsmen David Warner made a perfect comeback to the international circuit with his awe-inspiring performances in the 2019 World Cup. David Warner has always defied the odds and put up match-winning performances. In his last visit to England, he was providing the team with good starts and his tally of 441 runs proves it. Warner can change the course of the match within a session. Smart pick – England is already on the back foot after losing their first game and now the absence of James Anderson will further dent their chances. Still, their hopes are alive and it is because of Jofra Archer’s return to the fold. Jofra Archer is one of the stars which helped Three Lions lift the 2019 World Cup. In the last couple of years he has been performing consistently for his county side, Sussex and a week ago he scalped a 6-fer against Gloucestershire 2nd XI. Cautions Pick – Joe Denly is likely to be dropped from the playing XI and in that case, keeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow will be the new No.4 for the rest of the series. My XI – Steve Smith (Captain), David Warner (Vice-Captain), Jofra Archer, Rory Burns, Chris Woakes, Nathan Lyon, Ben Stokes, Matthew Wade, Joe Root, Travis Head, Jason Roy

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Sri Lanka vs New Zealand on August 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Sri Lanka vs New Zealand on August 14 New Zealand are currently preparing to face Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series which will be followed by three T20Is. After a disheartening loss in the 2019 World Cup final, the Kiwis will be looking to bounce back when they take on Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka come into this Test series against New Zealand in good spirits in this format of the game as they beat South Africa in a two-test series back in February after recently being in the doldrums, and that 2-0 victory along with some positive results in the World Cup see them come into this home series in good shape. New Zealand played Sri Lanka Board President’s XI last week and, while the match was disrupted by rain and bad light, it was a good test for them in the field as their pace bowlers toiled and left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel took 5/41, showing just how different conditions will be during this tour for them. Best economical pick – Mitchell Santner will likely return as the first-choice spinner in the team and also adds batting depth to the playing XI. His control and accuracy with the ball will ensure that pressure will constantly be built from one end, leaving bowlers to freely hunt for wickets from the other end. Top captains & vice captains – Kane Williamson is one among the top four leading batsmen across all formats currently and is coming off a sensational World Cup. In the recently concluded World Cup, he was awarded the player of the tournament award for his outstanding batting. He churned out 578 runs at an average of 82.57. Williamson literally carried the New Zealand batting line-up on his shoulders. Angelo Mathews is presently in a jaw-dropping form in international cricket. He played a couple of decent knocks of unbeaten 85 and 113 in the World Cup and was recently the Player of the Series against Bangladesh. In the 3-match series, Mathews was the leading run-scorer with 187 runs at an average of 93.50 with a couple of half-centuries. Lanka comfortably won the series 3-0 without dropping much sweat. He will be looking to translate the form in Test cricket as well. Smart pick – Ajaz Patel has 13 wickets from 2 matches so far with all 13 of them coming against Pakistan in conditions conducive to spin bowling in the United Arab Emirates. Patel is likely to play as the second spinner should New Zealand go with only 2 spin bowlers. Cautions Pick – Dinesh Chandimal last played in the format against Australia and then was left out for the series versus South Africa due to poor form. The right-handed batsman couldn’t make the final squad for the 2019 World Cup as well. My XI – Kane Williamson (Captain), Angelo Mathews (Vice-Captain), Ajaz Patel, Mitchell Santner, Jeet Raval, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Dimuth Karunaratne

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 8,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 8 India are oozing with confidence after clean-sweeping Windies in the three-match T20I series. All the games were pretty one-sided which showed the level of domination the visiting team had in the shorter format. The Caribbean batters, especially the ones in the top order, didn’t show much responsibility and threw wickets away. They have been guilty of doing so even in the One-Day cricket. It’s now time for the ODI series, which gets underway on August 8 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Jason Holder and Co had a poor campaign in the World Cup, beating only Pakistan and Afghanistan. Virat Kohli and his troops bowed out of the same tournament after the semis, but they had a great run in the league stages. In their last meeting, India thrashed the Windies by 125 runs in Manchester. Best economical pick – The emotions have ebbed and flowed for Rishabh Pant in the T20 series. In the first couple of games, he looked silly when he got out. However, when he got it right, he made it count. Pant scored his maiden T20I fifty as he complemented Virat Kohli beautifully from the other end. He displayed an array of shots as he took India home as he remained unbeaten on 65. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma played just two games in the T20 series but looked in great touch once again. Rohit Sharma continued from where he left off in the World Cup as he scored 91 runs in two innings. In fact, he was one of the few batsmen that looked comfortable on a tricky surface in Florida. He was the top-scorer for India in the first two games. The Indian skipper looked good in every game of the T20 series. Virat Kohli was hitting the ball well throughout the series. Kohli was in good touch throughout the World Cup. He scored five half-centuries on the bounce. He finished the T20 series with 106 runs which is the second-most in the series. Smart pick – Among the most prolific talents to come out of West Indies in recent times is Shai Hope. The wicket-keeping batsman has got the right technique to shine in ODIs. Hope will be the glue that holds the Windies batting order together. He has amassed 2521 runs in 61 matches at a very formidable average of 47.57, and had many starts in the World Cup too, without converting them into bigger scores. Cautions Pick – Evin Lewis has looked completely out of sort in the T20I series, scoring back-to-back ducks in the first two games. Then scored just 10 runs in the last T20I. He has been out of form since the beginning of World Cup. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Rishabh Pant, Shai Hope, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell, Fabian Allen, Roston Chase, Shikhar Dhawan, Jason Holder, Shreyas Iyer

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 6,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 6 India haven’t had it difficult in their ongoing three-match T20I series against the Windies. The visitors stuttered a wee bit in their run-chase during the first encounter at Lauderhill, Florida, but apart from that they have been absolutely unstoppable. The power-packed Caribbean batting hasn’t been able to get hold of the Indian bowlers by any means. Virat Kohli and Co are leading the series 2-0. After India’s win in the last game by 22 runs (DLS Method), the third match at the Providence Stadium is a dead rubber. Carlos Brathwaite’s men have lost five consecutive T20Is versus Team India. The One Day team didn’t have a great time in the World Cup and now the T20 team has been faltering, not something great for Windies cricket. They will be looking to salvage some pride in Guyana. Best economical pick – Krunal Pandya is becoming a vital cog for India in the T20I setup, and he is starting to become an indispensable player for Virat Kohli. He struggled with the bat initially before smashing Keemo Paul for two consecutive sixes in the final over of the innings. He got the set pair of Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell out off consecutive deliveries, on course to snatch the game from India's hands. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma started his innings with a boundary, and that set the tone for what was a pretty well-constructed innings. He hit 3 maximums, making him the player with the highest number of sixes in T20Is. He top-scored with 67 runs, and showed class, continuing his sublime form. Kieron Pollard looked the only batsman in touch in the first T20 when batsmen from both sides found it tough to score runs. Pollard would have fancied his chances in the second T20I as well before rain intervened. The Mumbai Indians all-rounder will look to end the series on a high and grab a consolation win for his side. Smart pick – The Wizard of the Windies cricket, Sunil Narine made a fantastic comeback to the International arena with a very strong performance in the first T20I. He picked up two wickets and made batting very difficult with his trickery. Cautions Pick – Rahul Chahar had an excellent IPL last time around, finishing with 13 wickets at an economy of 6.55. He was instrumental in Mumbai Indians winning the IPL for a record fourth time. In nine out of the 13 matches that he played, he gave away fewer than 30 runs in his four-over spells. The time is ripe for him to make his T20I debut for India, in the third match against West Indies. He could be drafted into the team in place of Ravindra Jadeja. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Kieron Pollard (Vice-Captain), Sunil Narine, Krunal Pandya, Virat Kohli, Sheldon Cottrell, Washington Sundar, Nicholas Pooran, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs India on August 3 India and West Indies are all geared up to cross swords in the three-match T20 International series which gets underway on August 3. The opening encounter will take place at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida. In their last meeting in the format, the Men in Blue slapped the Caribbean team with a whitewash in the three-match affair in India. The visitors will be going in with a relatively inexperienced bowling attack, though their batting is full-strength. As far as the Islanders are concerned, they included the likes of Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine, both of whom didn’t play the 2019 World Cup. Back in March, the Windies slumped to another clean-sweep, that time at the hands of England. They’ll be keen to make amends. Last year, India thumped the Windies 3-0 at home. But on the head-to-head count in the format, the teams are locked on five wins each. Back in 2016, at the same venue, the Windies beat India by one run in a game, which produced almost 500 runs. KL Rahul and Evin Lewis scored tons in that game and they will take the field again. Best economical pick – KL Rahul scored quite a few runs in the World Cup but also looked a little iffy. However, he has an excellent T20 record. He’s had a couple of brilliant IPLs and also, averages 43.95 and has a strike-rate of almost 150 in T20Is. Thus, we may well see him bat at No. 3, as he did for a large part of 2018. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma was the highest run-scorer in the World Cup. He made 648 runs at a fabulous average of 81.00. He scored as many as five hundreds in the tournament which is the most by any batsman in the history of World Cup cricket. India’s limited-overs vice-captain has been in fine form. No other player in the history of T20I cricket has more runs than Rohit Sharma (2331 T20I runs). Moreover, he has scored four hundreds which is also the most by any batsman in T20Is. Smart pick – Virat Kohli has been hitting the ball well. He scored five successive half-centuries in world Cup. He scored 443 runs at an average of 55.37 in the showpiece event. The last time he played a T20I in India colors was against Australia in February earlier this year. He was hitting the ball well and there was a different Virat Kohli that was seen. He was a lot more attacking and was pretty successful. Evin Lewis has an oustanding record against India in the format. The last time opener Evin Lewis played against India in Florida, he struck a majestic ton to power Windies to a one-run win. Cautions Pick – Shimron Hetmyer is full of talent but has been a disappointment in T20Is, having an average of 12.11. Pick him in your Fantasy team at your own risk. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Evin Lewis (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Sunil Narine, Khaleel Ahmed, Kieron Pollard, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Nicholas Pooran, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on July 11,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on July 11 The mini Ashes-rivalry is set to take place for the second time in the 2019 World Cup. After Australia’s thumping 64-run victory over England at the Lord’s, the two teams are set to lock horns in the second semi-final. At the Edgbaston in Birmingham, the age-old rivals would be trying to book a summit clash berth at the Lord’s. The Aussies would be disappointed that they missed out on a top spot in the table. Aaron Finch’s men lost to South Africa by 10 runs at the Old Trafford in Manchester and finished second. The Three Lions, on the other hand, was in danger of even getting eliminated before the second round. The Brits lost at the hands of Sri Lanka and then the Aussies to find themselves in a rabbit hole. However, a couple of resounding victories against India and New Zealand took them to the semis. Best economical pick – Jason Roy missed a few games due to an injury, but he has made a tremendous comeback. In the last two matches, the Durban-born batter scored got scores of 66 and 60 and has been absolutely stupendous. Overall, the 28-year-old has notched 341 runs in six matches at an average of 68.20. His strike-rate of 114.04 shows how fluent he has been in his stroke-play. Top captains & vice captains – In nine matches, David Warner had racked up 638 runs at an average of 79.75. With three centuries and as many half-centuries, the southpaw has hardly looked out of touch. Even in the previous game against South Africa, he churned out a century, though it came in a losing cause. Jonny Bairstow had his difficulties in the first few games and looked a tad out of touch. However, the back-to-back tons he got in the previous games would give him a whole lot of confidence. In 9 matches, Bairstow has gotten 462 runs at an average of 51.33 at a strike-rate of 97.26. Smart pick – Ben Stokes has lived up to expectations in the mega event. He started with an 89 versus South Africa and now has four half-centuries in nine matches. Two of his knocks came in losing causes though. Currently, Stokes has 381 runs at an average of 54.42 at a strike-rate of 95.01. Stokes has also done his bit with the ball in hand, having picked up seven wickets with an economy of 4.65. Cautions Pick – The form of Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler has been a slight bit of concern. These two players, for all the talent that they’ve got, haven’t backed it up with good performances of late. It is a wonderful opportunity for them both to reclaim their stake and there can’t be a better stage than this one. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Jonny Bairstow (Vice-Captain), Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Aaron Finch, Mitchell Starc, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes, Alex Carey, Steve Smith, Mark Wood

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on July 9,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on July 9 After some riveting encounters in the main round, the 2019 World Cup, the stage is now set for the semi-finals. The first of them is scheduled to be played tomorrow between India and New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester. It’s a venue where all the five games went in favor of the team, batting first and hence, the toss could play an important factor in deciding the result of the crunch encounter. The Kiwis are coming into the game on the back of three back-to-back defeats at the hands of Pakistan, England and Australia respectively. The Men in Blue, on the contrary, finished on top of the table with 15 points from nine matches. Barring their 31-run stutter against the Three Lions, Virat Kohli & Co. haven’t done much wrong and would be looking to book a berth for Finals Day on July 14. Best economical pick – KL Rahul has shouldered the responsibility of opening the batting pretty efficiently. The Karnataka batsman has notched 360 runs at an average of 51.42. In the first few games, he got starts, but couldn’t convert them. But in the last game, he turned up with a sparkling knock of 111 and it would’ve done his confidence a world of good. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma is currently in the middle of a purple patch, having scored 647 runs in eight matches at an average of 98.77. The 32-year-old racked up three tons in a row and is the only batsman with five centuries in a single edition of the World Cup. The right-hander has peaked at the right time in the tournament and would wish to carry on with his awe-inspiring run of form. One of the very reasons why the Kiwis are in the semis is Kane Williamson. Most of the times, he came in after the openers failed and he bailed his team out of jail. It’s not a surprise that he is their leading run-scorer with 481 runs in eight games at 96.20. He’ll be looking to increase his strike-rate, which is currently at 77.20. Smart pick – Virat Kohli hasn’t been outstanding by any means, but he has done his job with precision. At a decent average of 63.14, Virat has racked up 442 runs in eight matches with the top score of 82 versus Australia. The 30-year-old has five 50-plus scores and has steadied the ship more often than not in the middle order. Cautions Pick – New Zealand’s highest ranked batsmen in ODIs, Ross Taylor has struggled to come up with meaningful contributions in their last three games. With a lot of players already out of form, Kane Williamson would be devastated if Taylor departs quickly and at this point in time. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Kane Williamson (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson, Jasprit Bumrah, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs South Africa on July 6,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs South Africa on July 6 Australia have already qualified for the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup. Earlier last month, India defeated them at the Kennington Oval in London. But apart from that, Aaron Finch & Co have simply been unstoppable. The Aussies would be high on confidence after their resounding victory against New Zealand. Australia’s last match is against South Africa at the Old Trafford in Manchester on July 6. A top-of-the-table finish is definitely on the cards and a victory would ensure the same. The Proteas, on the other hand, have nothing to lose and are trying to salvage pride. Faf du Plessis & Co were knocked after their defeat against Pakistan at the Lord’s with two matches left. Last time around, they beat Sri Lanka by nine wickets in Chester-le-Street and would want to bow out on a winning note. Best economical pick – Rassie van der Dussen has scored pretty consistently for his team in the middle order. The 30-year-old has racked up 216 runs in eight matches at an average of 54. On a lot of instances, he was waging a lone battle. He has a couple of fifties and has looked comfortable in the middle. Van de Dussen would wish to end his campaign on a positive note. Top captains & vice captains – David Warner has been exceptional in the World Cup. The left-hander has scored 516 runs in eight matches at an average of 73.71. With three half-centuries and a couple of tons, he has been on a rampage. In the first few games, he was a tad cautious to start with but has come into his own. Faf du Plessis hasn’t been in the best of form in the tournament. He is indeed the leading run-getter for the Proteas with 287 runs at an average of 57.40 but has tended to strain sometimes. In the last match, the veteran scored an unbeaten 96 and showed what he is capable of. With his team out of the World Cup, Du Plessis would be hoping to end with a match-winning knock. Smart pick – Like his opening partner Warner, Aaron Finch has three fifties and a couple of tons in the mega event. The Aussie skipper has 504 runs in eight matches at an average of 63. He has scored those runs at a strike-rate of 102.43, which shows his fluency. He has also smacked the most number of sixes (18) by an Aussies batter. Cautions Pick – Australia has got an injury concern for the upcoming game. Glenn Maxwell was hit hard on his forearm in the nets session. While it is a no-brainer that he will make it into the cut if he is fit, Peter Handscomb might be roped in otherwise. Handscomb replaced Shaun Marsh who was ruled out of the tournament. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Faf du Plessis (Vice-Captain), Aaron Finch, Rassie van der Dussen, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Alex Carey, Quinton de Kock, Usman Khawaja
