CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs South Africa on November 17, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs South Africa on November 17 After being overhauled in the ODI series, the hosts Australia will now hope for a turnaround in the shortest format when they face South Africa in the one-off T20I. Australia have won nine and lost six out of 15 T20I matches they have played this year. Their most recent T20I assignment was against Pakistan in the UAE. They ended up losing the three-match series 0-3. Despite this, they will take a few positives from their record against the Proteas. South Africa have won three and as and lost three from the six T20I matches they have played so far in 2018. Two of the three wins were registered against a low ranked Zimbabwe team. However, since South Africa have defeated the hosts in the ODI series, the momentum will be with them. Both teams have played 17 T20I matches against each other. Australia have managed to emerge victorious on eleven occasions while South Africa have won the remaining six encounters. In the matches played in Australia, the hosts lead the scoreline 5-1. Best economical pick – With Mitchell Starc missing out due to injury, Billy Stanlake has been superb for the Australians. He took five wickets in two T20 internationals in UAE. Stanlake is a very good option as an opening bowler and if he is in the groove he could cause some serious problems for the South African top order. Top captains & vice captains – David Miller is a man in form. After his explosive century that propelled the Proteas to a big total at Hobart, Tasmania, Miller will enter this match with momentum on his side. Miller is a proven T20 specialist and can hit the ball out of the park comfortably. As far as recent matches go, Marcus Stoinis has been Australia’s most impressive player. The all-rounder has bagged quite a few wickets and is probably the most prolific player in the Aussie side right now. Stoinis has proved in the past that he can bat and has rescued his side in numerous occasions. Pick him and he could have a big impact on the match on Saturday. Smart pick – Chris Lynn is one of the most talented T20 batsmen there is in the world right now. With explosive innings which has given Australia some huge starts in the past, Lynn is most comfortable when he is hitting the ball out of the park. Pick Chris Lynn for his ability to score big in the shortest format of the game. Cautious Pick – Although Aaron Finch is among the top ten run scorers in the shortest format of the game this year, he failed to come up worthy contributions in the T20I series against Pakistan. He managed to score only 4 runs in the 3 T20Is he played against Pakistan in the last series. My XI – David Miller (Captain), Marcus Stoinis (Vice-Captain), Billy Stanlake, Chris Lynn, Faf du Plessis, Andrew Tye, Kagiso Rabada, Quinton de Kock, Farhaan Behardien, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan vs New Zealand on November 16, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan vs New Zealand on November 16 With the limited-overs fixtures done and dusted, Both Pakistan and New Zealand are now set to face each other in the longest format of the game in the first Test at Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi from tomorrow. Pakistan will be the more confident of the two sides ahead of this match as they have won four out of the five completed fixtures on this tour. Meanwhile, Sheikh Sayed Stadium is no less than a fort for the hosts as they have a strong Test record at this ground, having lost just one out of the eleven Tests they have played here. New Zealand’s previous Test assignment was in January 2018 against England. It was a two-match series which the Kiwis managed to end on a winning note. New Zealand won the opening game by an innings and 49 runs and then drew the second game to win the series 1-0. Both teams have played 55 Test matches against each other, with 24 of those have been won by the Men in Green and 10 by the Kiwis with the remaining 21 ending in draws. Best economical pick – Bilal Asif had a stupendous series against the Aussies, especially with the ball where he took 9 wickets in those 2 test matches with a five for to his name and he would be keen to make some contributions with the bat as well in this series against New Zealand. Top captains & vice captains – Mohammad Abbas will be the main threat for Kiwis when it comes to bowling. Abbas is in top form and he was their leading wicket-taker in recently concluded series against Australia with 17 wickets in two games and the onus will be on him to rattle the Kiwis top-order early on. Ross Taylor has been New Zealand’s cornerstone in batting for years now. His innings in the second ODI was testament to how crucial he is for the Kiwis. Ross Taylor was the top scorer for the kiwis in the ODI series with 2 back to back fifties to his name. There is no doubt that he is an impact player and can get you a lot of points regardless of the result for you. Smart pick – Fakhar Zaman has been rested for first two Tests and in his absence, Babar Azam will hold the key in their batting, He was among the leading run-getters in the recently concluded ODI series with 138 runs and will look to carry his ODI momentum into the longest format. Cautions Pick – Hasan Ali has been out of form since quite some time. He managed to take only 2 wickets in the 3 match ODI series against New Zealand. Pakistan team might choose the inform Shaheen Shah Afridi over him for this test series. My XI – Mohammad Abbas (Captain), Ross Taylor (Vice-Captain), Babar Azam, Bilal Asif, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Ish Sodhi, Jeet Raval

Critical Updates
  • Kuldeep Yadav

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Kuldeep Yadav was rested in the first ODI and that affected India very badly in the middle overs. He is one of the few bowlers who have the ability to pick up the wickets at a regular interval during the middle overs. Kuldeep Yadav should be back to the playing for the second ODI to contain the Windies batsmen from scoring more runs in the middle overs.

  • 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.
