CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips  India vs South Africa on October 10, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on October 10 After the three-match T20I series finished at 1-1, India drew first blood in the three-match Test series. They were clinical in their performance at Visakhapatnam as they beat South Africa by a margin of 203 runs. After winning the toss and batting first, India rode on the big centuries made by the openers and they racked up 502 before declaring. South Africa fought hard too. On the back of tons from Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock, the visitors kept the deficit down to 71 runs. However, India bossed the game from the second innings as they put the foot on the accelerator and set South Africa a target of 395 with a little over a day to go. The Proteas crumbled in the fourth innings to hand India a 1-0 lead in this series. Hence, India gained 40 World Test Championship points as well which solidified their position at the top. The action now moves to Pune for the second Test where India will try to seal the series and create history by becoming the first team to register 11 successive Test series wins at home. Best economical pick– Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma opened together for the first time and had a wonderful outing. Both of them scored big hundreds as they laid the platform for India’s first innings total. The duo shared a mammoth stand of 317 runs in the first innings and made South Africa wait for 82 overs to get their first wicket of the series. Agarwal scored his maiden Test century which he then converted to a fantastic double ton. Proteas batsman Quinton de Kock has moved back into the Top 10 of the ICC Test batting rankings following their defeat against India in the first Test. De Kock returned to the Top 10 as he gained four places and moved to seventh for scoring his first Test century against India. De Kock made 111 off 163 balls in the first innings and shared a 164-run partnership with opener Elgar. Top captains & vice captains –Rohit Sharma who opened the batting for the first time in Test cricket could do no wrong. He blasted twin centuries as he scored 176 and 127 to run away with the Man of the Match award as well. It was his acceleration in the second innings that allowed India to set a big target. Smart pick –Indian left-arm all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja picked up his 200th Test wicket on Day 3 of the first Test against South Africa at Visakhapatnam. With that, Jadeja also became the fastest left-arm bowler to take 200 wickets in Test cricket. Jadeja took just 44 Tests to reach the mark, surpassing Rangana Herath of Sri Lanka (47 matches) who previously held the record. Cautions Pick –Rishabh Pant has been facing a lot of backlash after failing to deliver consistently at the international level. His poor shot selection has frequently put his team into trouble. Pant had scores of 27, 24 and 7 versus West Indies. Though he has been good when it comes to keeping behind the wickets, his poor form with the bat has been piling pressure on him. My XI – Rohit Sharma(Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Dean Elgar, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Dane Piedt, Keshav Maharaj, Mohammed Shami

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan vs Sri Lanka on October 9, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan vs Sri Lanka on October 9 Sri Lanka has clearly punched above their weight in this series. And they have a golden chance now to inflict a whitewash on the World number 1 T20I side. Their youngsters, especially, Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been brilliant in the series so far and the visitors would like to continue the good run. It will also be interesting to see if they give an opportunity to the benched players before leaving the country. Pakistan, surprisingly, have been poor. They bossed the format until 2019 started and now have lost three series on the trot. They might also be in danger of losing their top spot in the ICC Rankings. The home crowd has witnessed back to back disappointing performances and the Men in Green will hope to bring smiles to the fans’ faces at the end of the tour. Best economical pick– The Sri Lankan pacer was simply incredible in the last game picking up four wickets in the second innings. Nuwan Pradeep put the Pakistan batting attack on the backfoot right from the beginning and was fast and fiery as Sri Lanka piled on the pressure. It seems like he has struck form and is a viable option for your Fantasy team. Top captains & vice captains –In the post-match conference, this is what Misbah-ul-Haq said while lamenting on his teams’ batting effort in the series. “We became number 1 in the T20I rankings but if you dig deeper, what has been our strength mostly – it’s been due to Babar Azam’s runs and he didn’t score in two games and we’ve been exposed.” It is clear that Pakistan’s batting is overdependent on Babar Azam, and with him registering scores of 13 & 3 in the series, puts into context the performance of his team. 32 of 22 in the first match followed by a swashbuckling 48-ball 77 in the second, Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been one of the finds for Sri Lanka in this tour. Will the youngster back it up with another eyebrow-raising performance and inspire Sri Lanka to a series white-wash?. Smart pick –Although it was a bad day at the office for Pakistan in the second T20I, Imad Wasim had a really good game for himself. After being the pick among the bowlers with a steady spell that got him one wicket, Wasim scored a resilient 47 — his career best — to take Pakistan close to the total. Eventually standing as a lone wolf between Sri Lanka and victory, Wasim’s wicket was the final straw. But he can be a great option for your Fantasy team. Cautions Pick –The hosts brought back Fakhar Zaman in the last game after inexplicably dropping him in the first T20I. However, the left-hander played a bad shot and got out for just 6. Pakistan’s problem thus far in this series has been their misfiring opening combination. My XI – Babar Azam (Captain), Bhanuka Rajapaksa (Vice-Captain), Nuwan Pradeep, Wanidu Hasaranga, Imad Wasim, Dasun Shanaka, Minod Bhanuka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Mohammad Amir, Haris Sohail
