CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Pakistan on September 19, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Pakistan on September 19 After a thumping victory against Hong Kong by eight wickets at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Pakistan are set to cross swords with their arch-rivals India at the same venue. The clash is considered to be the most intensified among all the group matches. Indian batsman Virat Kohli has an impressive record against the Men in Green, but he won’t be a part of the marquee encounter. In the meantime, the power-packed Indian batting lineup has been touted to be weakened due to Kohli’s absence and many of the players from the opposition has talked about taking advantage of his absence from the playing eleven. As far as the multi-nation extravaganza is concerned, both India and Pakistan have won five matches each in event ever since its inception back in 1984. Best economical pick – Usman Khan was absolutely on fire against Hong Kong and kept troubling the batsmen with the pace and bounce that he extracted off the pitch. He would be high on confidence. Although he walked off the field, he is deemed to be fit for this match. Top captains & vice captains – Shikhar Dhawan has scored his 14th ODI hundred in just 105 innings in India's opening match of the ongoing Asia Cup against Hong Kong. With a healthy career average of above 45 as an Indian opener, Dhawan is certainly the man of big tournaments. Although the hundred came against a meek Hong Kong side who lost their ODI status in March (but were granted temporary ODI status for this tournament only), it is just a mere replication of the feats Dhawan has achieved over the years as an Indian opener. Fakhar Zaman has been a revelation for Pakistan in ODIs as he averages around 73 in ODI's. The last time these two sides played, Fakhar got a match-winning hundred for his side. He scores runs at a quick rate and has the ability to play a match-defining inning. He will look to repeat the same heroics against India when these two sides face off on Wednesday. Smart pick – Kuldeep Yadav has an incredible record in his 23-match career and batsmen have found it difficult to effectively read him. However, he is yet to play a match against Pakistan and it will be interesting to see how Sarfraz’s men handle his guile and trajectory. The 23-year-old was also the leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded ODI series against England with nine wickets from three matches. Cautious Pick – Mohammad Amir hasn’t had the best of time of late in national colours. He went wicketless against a not-so-strong batting lineup. Thus far, the 26-year-old has picked five wickets against India in four matches. My XI – Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Fakhar Zaman (Vice-Captain), Usman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Shoaib Malik, Kedar Jadhav, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Hardik Pandya, Lokesh Rahul

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Hong Kong on September 18, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Hong Kong on September 18 India will kick-start their Asia Cup campaign facing Hong Kong in their maiden appearance at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Hong Kong, on the other hand, could well be playing their last ODI game for a while having lost their ODI status early on. The Associate team has failed terribly with the bat and won’t find it any ease against the strong Indian bowling line-up. India won’t field in all the players returning after the completion of the England tour as they would be playing Pakistan on the very next day. Hong Kong will be hoping to produce their best to try and trouble the top-ranked Asian team. Best economical pick – Yuzvendra Chahal forms a formidable spin bowling pair along with Kuldeep Yadav. He has caused a lot of trouble even on non-spinner friendly pitches in South Africa and England His best attribute is his uncanny ability to pick wickets in the pressure situations as he shows incredible composure even when the batsmen look to attack him. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma, after being named the captain, will be hoping to stamp his authority in the multi-nation tournament. His power-hitting prowess has helped India win a number of matches and Hong Kong will be in with a tough task of restricting the might of the opening batsman. In the English tour, he scored two hundreds at Bristol and Nottingham respectively. Jasprit Bumrah is one of, if not the best fast bowler in limited overs format right now. He can cause a lot of trouble with the new ball but he's a specialist when it comes to bowling in death overs. He can bowl yorkers at will and has the capability to blow away a batting lineup. He'll play a very important role for India in the whole tournament. Smart pick – The swashbuckling batsman Babar Hayat is the leading run scorer for Hong Kong in ODIs and quite expectantly, his team will be looking up to the 26-year-old in their do-or-die match against Rohit Sharma’s men. Against Pakistan, he strained to find his feet after which the Attock-born batter succumbed to the guile and trajectory of leg-break bowler Shadab Khan. Cautious Pick – Scott McKechnie was in the XI solely to keep wickets during the Asia Cup Qualifiers 2018. He batted at No 8 or No 9 most times and didn’t have much to do with the bat. In 4 innings he scored 44 runs at an average of 22 and strike rate of 73. And then scored a duck in the first match against Pakistan. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah (Vice-Captain), Ehsan Khan, Babar Hayat, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Nizakat Khan, Kinchit Shah, Dinesh Karthik, Khaleel Ahmed

Critical Updates
  • Dasun Shanaka
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Niroshan Dickwella is expected to come into the side in place of Dasun Shanaka. For all the talent and the skill that he possesses, Shanaka hasn’t been able to deliver either with the bat or the ball. He just bowled three overs and was run out after an extended struggle with the willow against Bangladesh.
  • Akila Dananjaya
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : The Sri Lankan mystery off-spinner Akila Dananjaya bagged 14 wickets in the recently concluded five-match series against South Africa, claiming six wickets in the final ODI and bamboozling the South African batsmen for a paltry total of 121. Possessing a classic leg-spinner, a carrom ball, and a splendid googly up his sleeve, Akila Dhananjaya is definitely a key player in this Sri Lankan squad for this tournament.
     
    Akila Dananjaya will not be available for the matches between 15th and 17th as his wife is expected to give birth to their first child.
  • Prithvi Shaw
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : The Indian batting prodigy from Mumbai, Prithvi Shaw, is expected to get his first international game in the fifth Test against England after a dismal show by KL Rahul in the fourth Test. Shaw has been exceptional in the recent scheme of things. Hence, in Shaw, India might look to end their opening woes in the fifth Test.
  • Alastair Cook

    Playing XI - Definitely

    Analysis : Alastair Cook has not been in good form for England for almost a year now. In the three Test matches against India, he has scored just 80 runs in five innings at an average of 16. He hasn't used his feet at all to the Indian pacers and hence has nicked the ball a couple of times. Being a good player of spin bowling, he has surprisingly got out to Ashwin twice in the three Test matches so far. Hence, England should consider the option of dropping Alastair Cook in the remaining two matches.

  • Adil Rashid

    Playing XI : May be

    Analysis : England's front-line spinner Adil Rashid has been rarely given the ball in this Test series so far. Despite playing all the three matches, he didn't ball at all in the Lord's Test due to the overhead conditions and bowled just 48 overs in the other two Test matches. Hence, he has just picked up 7 wickets at an average of 26.71. Hence, England should look at picking up a spin all-rounder like Moeen Ali who has troubled the Indian batsmen in the past.
