CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 22,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 22 West Indies vs England ODI series kicked off in style with the visitors taking a 1-0 lead in what was a high-scoring thriller at Bridgetown. West Indies, who batted first, scored a mammoth score of 360 runs thanks to a fine century by Gayle. England who lost the Test series, showed exactly why they are favourites for this year’s World Cup chasing down the big score with more than an over to spare. With a 1-0 lead for England, both teams will now play the second ODI at the same venue on Friday. Although England won the 1st ODI, Windies will take a lot of positives from the match. The hosts were excellent with the bat but would feel disappointed that they couldn’t score more. Wickets tumbled towards the end putting brakes on their run rate. West Indies will also be disappointed with their bowling. After posting a score of 360, they were definitely in the driving seat but lost a good opportunity to take a lead in the series. Best economical pick – Chris Gayle marked his return to international Cricket in the way only he knew best. Gayle started off slow playing a remarkable 55 dot-balls, but then switched gears to hit 12 sixes as he scored 135 in the first innings. Gayle is West Indies’ front man in the batting department and could be an impact player in 2nd ODI. Top captains & vice captains – In what was a batsman’s paradise, England’s mighty batting line-up did exactly what was expected. Led by Jason Roy at the top, England were clinical in their run chase as they chased down the target with an over to spare. Roy has been in great form off late and is a crucial batsman for England in the series. While Jason Roy was responsible for the fire-works, somebody was needed at the other end to stitch a partnership. Joe Root did exactly that as he scored a century too helping England beyond the finish line. Root is also in good form and is a vital member in the England team. Smart pick – Ben Stokes had a good match on Wednesday. Picking up 3 wickets, he was partly responsible for the West Indies batting collapse towards the end of the innings. He was a constant presence in the team and is a smart pick for your fantasy team. Cautions Pick – England team looks to be sorted ahead of the World Cup 2019. However, there are one or two positions in the bowling department that are still to be addressed. The team might have missed a trick by not playing Tom Curran in the first ODI. He is coming off a great BBL season and might replace Mark Wood, who went for plenty in the first match. My XI – Jason Roy (Captain), Joe Root (Vice-Captain), Chris Gayle, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Devendra Bishoo, Jos Buttler, Darren Bravo, John Campbell

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Sri Lanka on February 21,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Sri Lanka on February 21 South Africa and Sri Lanka played one of the most exciting games of Test cricket in their first match at Kingsmead, Durban. Needing 304 to win, Sri Lanka, who have been struggling off late, rallied on valiantly to cross the finish line by just one wicket. Sri Lanka started off strongly with the ball as they bowled out South Africa for just 235 to put pressure, but it was the fourth innings knock by Kushal Perera at the very end which made all the difference in what was a very entertaining game of Cricket. South Africa will definitely fight back, but only time will tell if the Lankans will be able to fight off the Proteas charge. Even though the first Test match had a winner, both teams will be fairly proud of the cricket that they played during the five days. South Africa will feel that they were undone by the top order in both the innings. But it is unlikely that the Proteas will enforce a change in the side heading into the second Test. Best economical pick – Sri Lanka’s best bowler in Durban, Vishwa Fernando picked up eight wickets in two innings in the first Test match. The pacer was comfortable in his zone as he managed to pick up four vital wickets in each innings to dislodge the South African batting attack. Fernando is a bankable option heading into the second Test match and could get you some points. Top captains & vice captains – If not him, then who? Kushal Perera was undoubtedly the player of the match in the first Test. Not just because of his match-winning knock of 153 in the second innings but also because of the stability that he brings to the Sri Lankan middle-order. Perera is in good touch and even managed to score a half-century in the first innings. South Africa’s only threat in the batting department, Quinton De Kock has matured so much as a batsman. De Kock comes in at number six which makes his position very tricky in Test Cricket. But De Kock has shown exemplary skills and maturity as he is arguably the pick among the Proteas batsmen. Smart pick – Supporting Quinton De Kock in the middle order was skipper Faf Du Plessis who himself had a decent match. Du Plessis is a level-headed batsman who doesn’t usually get carried away and is a player you can bank on in the second Test match. Cautions Pick – He has been one of South Africa’s best batsmen with over fifty international hundreds. But Hashim Amla failed once again by scoring 3 and 16 in the two innings in the first Test against Sri Lanka. My XI – Kushal Perera (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Faf Du Plessis, VIshwa Fernado, Aiden Markram, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Vernon Philander, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Mendis, Dean Elgar

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 20,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 20 England’s tour of West Indies hasn’t been a pleasant one so far. The three-match Test series saw the visitors lose the first two games as the English batsmen had no answer to West Indies’ pace attack. Although they made an impressive comeback in the third match, they lost the series. But with the five-match ODI series beginning on Wednesday, February 20, England has another chance of picking up some momentum as the World Cup approaches. West Indies is a formidable limited overs side and beating them at home won’t be easy. The series promises to be another feisty international affair as two good teams clock horns. With World Cup in the mind for both the teams, England and West Indies have named their strongest squad for the series. The hosts have called up veteran Chris Gayle for the ODI series as warm-up for the intercontinental tournament. England on the other hand are fairly comfortable with the squad, naming a full-strength side for the five match ODI series. Best economical pick – With an impressive performance in this season’s Big Bash League, Tom Curran has rightfully earned a spot in the England international side. Curran who is a great asset for any side in the limited overs will be England’s wild card and could be an unlikely impact player in the series. Top captains & vice captains – England has an array of great ODI batsmen and it is often difficult to pick one over the other. Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Joe Root are all formidable choices, but Jonny Bairstow’s incredible form makes him captain of our Fantasy Cricket team for West Indies vs England 1st ODI. Shai Hope has two centuries and a 43 in his last three ODIs and he carries on his shoulders the hopes of a strong Windies show should this power-packed England line-up post a daunting total. His ODI average of 47.48 is commendable. Smart pick – Ever since Shimron Hetmyer made an impact in the tour of India last year, the Windies batsman has been simply unstoppable in the limited overs. His technique is remarkable and has become an integral part of the squad. With Gayle on the roster, picking Hetmyer over him hasn’t been easy but his form has made it easier for us to pick. Cautions Pick – England is quite a dominant side in 50-over cricket. Eoin Morgan is back in the camp along with some other limited-overs specialists. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will open the innings. Alex Hales might miss out with Roy-Bairstow doing well at the top of the order. My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Shai Hope (Vice-Captain), Tom Curran, Shimron Hetmyer, Adil Rashid, Ashley Nurse, John Campbell, Moeen Ali, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Chris Gayle

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 20,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 20 The Blackcaps are set to host the Bangladesh Tigers for the final ODI at University Oval, Dunedin. With the series in their kitty, the home side would be eyeing a clean sweep heading into the third ODI. This will be the last ODI before both the teams lock horns in white kits. The visitors would be hoping to end this series on a winning note to gain some momentum for the test series. Both the teams have a lot to play for, despite it being a dead rubber contest. The Kiwis sealed the series comfortably in the second game, thrashing Bangladesh by 8 wickets. They won both the games comprehensively to take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match series. On the other hand, Bangladesh have struggled in all three departments since arriving in New Zealand. The visitors have been outplayed by the Kiwis in both the ODIs. The Bangladeshi Tigers would be hoping to win the final game and end this series on a high. Best economical pick – Mohammad Mithun has been the only positive for the Tigers in the ongoing series, having hit a fifty in both the matches. The consistent failure of the openers is hurting the visitors badly and they will desperately need a strong outing from their openers, Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das. Top captains & vice captains – Martin Guptill is looking in ominous form. The opener cracked a hundred in both games and will be expected to provide another strong performance in the third ODI. He led both the chases from the front to take his side over the line. Tamim Iqbal is Bangladesh's trump card. He has been one of Bangladesh's most reliable batsmen over the years and he will be keen to show his mettle in the third game after a couple of poor knocks. If he gets going, the visitors can be sure to have a solid platform, which they have missed so far. Smart pick – In spite of his lack of form in the previous two ODIs, Mushfiqur Rahim still remains one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen in world cricket. His ability to keep the scoreboard ticking is crucial and with a flat pitch on offer, his contributions could be crucial to the Bangladesh team. Cautions Pick – Kane Williamson has been rested for the third ODI and Tom Latham will lead the Kiwis in his absence. So don’t pick Kane Williamson in your cricbattle fantasy team. My XI – Martin Guptill (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim, Lockie Ferguson, Mustafizur Rahman, Matt Henry, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Tom Latham, Sabbir Rahman

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 16,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 16 After comfortably taking a 1-0 lead, hosts New Zealand look to clinch the three-match ODI series when they face Bangladesh in the second ODI at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday, February 16. With a lead in the ODI series, New Zealand have the perfect start and would want to wrap up the series in the second ODI. This would allow them to test their bench-strength for the third ODI keeping in mind the Cricket World Cup. Bangladesh on the other hand were confident about their chances of winning in New Zealand for the first time ever. Although they have suffered a setback, they would be keen to bounce back in the series. Best economical pick – Although New Zealand had a couple of spin options for the series, Mitchell Santner was their only spinner for the first ODI. Santner did well as he picked up three wickets to trouble the Bangladesh batting attack in the middle overs. Santner can also be a good option with the bat and available at a salary of just 8.5, hence is an economical pick for New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI.. Top captains & vice captains – While there were doubts about his fitness for the first ODI, Martin Guptill showed us that he is ready and fit for any challenge. Hitting a fine century in the first ODI, Guptill is the first name in our list for the second match. Guptill is a perfect opener who can dictate the game from the very beginning. He is a player who should definitely feature in your Fantasy Cricket team. Yes we agree that he was fairly disappointing in the first ODI, but Tamim Iqbal is a man-in-form and could explode onto the scene at any moment. Iqbal’s batting has been very impressive off late and is Bangladesh’s trump card in the series. Smart pick – New Zealand’s pick among the bowlers in the first ODI, Trent Boult was excellent for the Black Caps in Auckland. He was really effective early on in the innings as he picked up three wickets in quick succession to put pressure on the Bangladesh batsmen. Boult is a very effective player and could be your most bankable pick for the New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI. Cautions Pick – The experienced campaigner Mushfiqur Rahim scored a half-century in the warm-up match against New Zealand XI in Lincoln, but couldn’t carry on with his good form in the first game. He looked out of sorts and was cleaned up by Trent Boult after he could score only five off 14 balls. My XI – Martin Guptill (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Mahmudullah, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mohammad Mithun

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Sri Lanka on February 13,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Sri Lanka on February 13 Sri Lankan cricket is experiencing a real low at the moment. After losing a home series 0-3 to England, they’ve lost Test series’ in New Zealand and Australia. They’re now in South Africa for a 2-match Test series, which will be followed by 5-ODIs and three T20Is. Durban will host the first Test and while Sri Lanka searches for answers, South Africa is on a high. They absolutely mauled Pakistan on the just-concluded series and their pace-attack is one of the best in world cricket at the moment. The only inspiration for Sri Lanka going into the series opener will be their stunning win over South Africa in the home series last year. South Africa won their last Test at the venue in 2013 and haven’t beaten the visitors as well. Best economical pick – No one can deny that South Africa are a much better team when they have Dale Steyn leading the attack. One of the finest bowlers of the generation, Dale Steyn is still very much a feared bowler for the batsmen. With conditions favoring him, Steyn will be looking to create all sorts of problems for the Sri Lankan batsmen and can get you a lot of points Top captains & vice captains – Kagiso Rabada has been Proteas backbone in all formats of the game. He could destroy any batting line-up in the world with his raw pace. The right-arm pacer is currently the number one bowler in the ICC Test Match Player Rankings. The 23-year-old ended the 2018 year as the leading wicket-taker in Tests with 52 wickets from just 10 games. Dean Elgar puts a price on his wicket and has the ability to bat time and tire the opposition bowlers down. He had form on his side, too, with a fifty in the first game and will look to give South Africa a solid start against a fragile Sri Lankan bowling attack. Smart pick – If opening in Tests overseas wasn’t an easy challenge, Dimuth Karunaratne has an added responsibility of leading a faltering line-up at the moment. It will be interesting to see how he deals with the captaincy and it goes without saying that he needs to lead from the front with the bat. Even on the field, the left-hander will have to make better decisions and also keep the spirits of his team high at a venue where Sri Lanka are yet to lose to South Africa in Tests. Cautions Pick – Faf du Plessis will return after serving a one-match ban for slow over-rate. This means that either Theunis de Bruyn will have to make way for the skipper. Expect the rest of South Africa’s squad to be the same as the one that featured against Pakistan. My XI – Kagiso Rabada (Captain), Dean Elgar (Vice-Captain), Dale Steyn, Dimuth Karunaratne, Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma, Kasun Rajitha, Vernon Philander, Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 13,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 13 The high-flying New Zealand cricket team are on the right path. After a very disappointing home series loss against India in the ODIs, the Black Caps bounced back strongly to claim the T20I series 2-1. With the World Cup just three months away, every team will be eager to get some momentum. Bangladesh, on the other hand, are coming fresh off their annual domestic league and will be eager to kick off what will be a very busy international season. Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza spoke to the media on Sunday where he said that his team is ready for the challenge and will be able to break their drought in New Zealand. Bangladesh face the Black Caps in the 1st ODI at McLean Park in Napier on Wednesday, February 13. Best economical pick – After being on the receiving end of some good batting by the Indians, Trent Boult had his moment when he took a five-fer in the fourth ODI. Boult at his best is a menace for any batting attack. Although Bangladesh will be wary of the threat that Boult brings to the series, the pacer will still have his moments in the series and hence is a valuable pick. Top captains & vice captains – One of the most consistent batsmen for the Black Caps in recent times, this series will be the perfect opportunity for Ross Taylor to get into form before the World Cup. Taylor had a quiet series against India and wasn’t effective as much. Taylor would be determined to create an impact in the three-match ODI series. After a blistering century in the final of the Bangladesh Premier League, Tamim Iqbal features in our list over other in-form batters in both the teams. Iqbal’s innings definitely brought back his form and will be the danger man with the bat for the Tigers. While Mushfiqur Rahim is also a smart choice, we had a choice to make between these two and Iqbal’s century last week tilted our picks in his favor. Smart pick – A player who missed out on the series against India due to injury, James Neesham is back and will fill a big void in New Zealand’s batting attack. Neesham brings depth to the New Zealand batting line-up and can also pick up the occasional wickets when he’s bowling. Neesham could really get into his dangerous best in the series- a sight very worrying for international teams across the world. Cautions Pick – With only one-half century in the ODI series against India, Kane Williamson wasn’t in the greatest of Knicks. He got starts but unfortunately couldn’t convert them. His indifferent form was also one of the reasons why the Black Caps slumped against India. My XI – Ross Taylor (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Trent Boult, James Neesham, Lockie Ferguson, Mahmudullah, Mustafizur Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman, Todd Astle, Colin de Grandhomme

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 9,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 9 West Indies are 2-0 up in the three-Test series and will be looking ahead to a whitewash. They sealed the series in the second Test, where they beat a completely hapless England side by 10 wickets. The third and final Test gets underway in St Lucia on February 9. With the kind of slump and misery Windies have seen in the recent past, this series win will be a great confidence boost. With the series all wrapped up, West Indies will be looking to continue their brilliance despite the suspension of Jason Holder. On the other hand, an out-of-sorts England side look to salvage some pride after being treated with disdain in the last two Tests. Best economical pick – Shane Dowrich would be the ideal option to go with as the wicket-keeper in your fantasy team. Dowrich is in good form with the bat and has been able behind the wickets as well to justify his selection. Top captains & vice captains – Kemar Roach has been on fire in the series, crippling England's batsmen with his raw pace. Kemar Roach has been splendid, and is the top wicket taker of the series with 13 scalps at 12.07. His match-winning performance in the second Test helped him climb eight spots in the MRF ICC Test Rankings for bowlers and he currently sits at No.12. His contribution with the ball in the final game will be particularly important in Holder's absence. Eight months ago, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel shared 19 Sri Lankan wickets between them here. And as they take the field in search of a 3-0 series whitewash, they will spur themselves with a glance at their bedraggled opponents, who in four attempts on this tour have shown not the slightest aptitude for playing high-quality fast bowling in conducive conditions. Smart pick – Despite poor scores so far, Joe Root remains England's best chance of turning their fortunes around in St Lucia. The captain, who slipped out of the top five in the ICC Test Rankings for batsmen, will be keen to play a big innings in the final Test and end the series on a high. Cautions Pick – The question still remains. Are the English trying too many all-rounders in the side rather than more accomplished batsmen? The jury is still out for the English but as far as the third Test is concerned, a few changes are expected with Sam Curran likely to be given the sack. Chris Woakes could replace him in the side while much is expected from their middle order comprising of Buttler, Stokes, Root and Bairstow. My XI – Kemar Roach (Captain), Shannon Gabriel (Vice-Captain), Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Rory Burns, James Anderson, Joe Root, Shai Hope, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Denly, Darren Bravo

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs India on February 8,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs India on February 8 New Zealand fired the first shots in the three match T20I series against India. In the first T20I between the two teams on Wednesday, the hosts romped to a 80 run victory. They now have a 1-0 lead with two matches remaining in the series. India will be heading into the 2nd T20I at Eden Park on Friday knowing that they will have to win the match to keep the series alive. As for New Zealand, a victory on Friday will mean that they could test their bench strength in the third ODI; something they would be keen on, especially with the Cricket World Cup just a few months away. Best economical pick – Yes, we agree that Kuldeep Yadav wasn’t picked for the first T20I and that there is no guarantee for him to take part on Friday. But if there is anything that India could learn from the first match is the erratic selection. And if India does intend to mend it, Yadav will be featured in the 2nd T20I. Kuldeep Yadav could have the same effect that Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi had on the Indian batsmen and could play a vital role. Top captains & vice captains – Brought in as a replacement for the injured Martin Guptill, Tim Seifert had a point or two to prove. And that is exactly he did. Rolling back the years, Seifert looked like Brendon McCullum in his prime as he punished the Indian bowlers for some lackluster bowling. Seifert put New Zealand in the driver’s seat right from the beginning and looked in control at all times. While Tim Seifert took over the mantle of getting New Zealand to an explosive start, Colin Munro took over the unusual role of stabilizing the innings. Munro still managed to hit the big shots as he scored 34 off just 20 deliveries. Munro is a dangerous batsman whenever he comes to bat in T20I Smart pick – New Zealand had put a target they would fancy themselves to defend, but the onus was up to the bowlers to step up and get the job done. Tim Southee who led New Zealand’s bowling attack was spot on right from the start as he restricted the Indian batsmen from switching gears. With the wicket of Rohit Sharma early on in the innings, Southee made sure that the pressure was always on India. Cautions Pick – Although it might seem to be slightly unfair call, the management might bench Vijay Shankar for the upcoming game. His services weren’t required with the ball due to the abundance of options. With the bat, he threw his wicket away at the wrong time even though he had a wonderful opportunity ahead of him. Leaving Shankar out to get an additional bowler in might bring in the much-needed balance. My XI – Tim Seifert (Captain), Colin Munro (Vice-Captain),Tim Southee, Kuldeep Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Shikhar Dhawan, Mitchell Santner, Ross Taylor, Krunal Pandya, Rishabh Pant

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Pakistan on February 6,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Pakistan on February 6 Two matches, two very close finish, but one result. South Africa has been on the lucky end of the first two T20I matches in the three-match series against Pakistan. With a 1-0 lead in the series, South Africa posted 188 in their 20 overs. The Proteas were ruthless as they exposed the Pakistan bowlers and got to their total pretty comfortably. Pakistan on the other hand, were a much better side chasing the score as they at one point looked like they well on their way. But with a few wickets during the death overs, Proteas made sure that they clinched the three-match T20 series. Both teams now head to the SuperSport Park in Centurion for the third and final T20I. Best economical pick – While Pakistan bowlers had a pretty dismal day on Sunday, one bowler stood out and how. Imad Wasim just conceded nine runs in his four over spell and picked up one wicket. Wasim was absolutely dangerous and looked at one point as if he was going to take a wicket every time he was running into bowl. Top captains & vice captains – One of the highly rated batsmen in the Pakistan side right now, Babar Azam showed exactly why there is so much talk around him as he scored a massive 58-ball 90 during Pakistan’s run chase. Babar Azam scored 13 boundaries and looked absolutely in command during his innings. Taking on the role of a captain from Faf du Plessis, David Miller really showed why is one of the most feared T20 batsman in the world. Pakistan who were quite decent with the ball until then had no answers for the Miller onslaught as the batsman dealt in maximums. Smart pick – Andile Phehlukwayo has definitely been the player for South Africa in the last few months. Shining with the bat and ball, Phehlukwayo is a resourceful player who often gets the job done for his team. While Pakistan looked like they were cruising at one point, Phehlukwayo pulled Proteas back into the game with a wicket and then kept Pakistan at bay with a brilliant last over. Cautions Pick – Being a leg-spinner Shadab Khan was expected to make an impact and make some inroads into the South African batting, but he was taken apart for 38 runs in the first T20I and 25 runs in the second match. The youngster also didn’t bowl his quota of four overs in both the matches. He didn’t have much to do either with the bat in hand. My XI – Babar Azam (Captain), David Miller (Vice-Captain), Andile Phehlukwayo, Imad Wasim, Reeza Hendricks, Beuran Hendricks, Tabraiz Shamsi, Shaheen Afridi, Gihahn Cloete, Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik
