CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Afghanistan on June 18, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Afghanistan on June 18 All teams have been trying to figure out how the current England side can be broken down, as of now in the tournament only Pakistan did that job with a tinge of luck on their favour. If they bat first, they place a mountain to climb and if they bat second, any total seems gettable, in simple, they seem invincible. Of all the current teams in the ongoing World Cup, going by recent form, Afghanistan is the last team anyone would want to bet on to beat this stellar juggernaut. With due respect to the Asian side, the hosts are just too strong for most teams and it is something no one can hide from. Gulbadin Naib and his troops are hitting new lows with every passing game and it seems likely that they might not win even a single game. All they can do is a bank on their strengths, which is their bowling attack and expect for things to work in their favour. As it stands, it doesn’t seem like they will be garnering a positive result from this game. Best economical pick – Chris Woakes chipped in with a valuable contribution with the bat during adverse conditions and ensured England didn’t feel the absence of the injured batters. He will be crucial once again in both departments. He just picked up four wickets in the tournament but has been bowling in good channels. Top captains & vice captains – Arguably England's best player of spin bowling, Joe Root might be called up against Afghanistan to tackle their quality spinners. Considering that the same pitch will be used for the game between England and Afghanistan, Root might have a sizeable role to play. He has also been in a surreal form in the World Cup so far. England would like Jonny Bairstow to start converting his starts and he won't get a better opponent than Afghanistan. Bairstow was at utmost ease against Afghanistan in the warm up match before the World Cup began. He raced on to 39 in no time but had to return back to the pavilion in an unfortunate manner. He even looked solid against the Afghan spinners. Bairstow will look to take all this into account and post a huge score against Afghanistan Smart pick – One of England's trump cards, Jofra Archer has given a completely different dimension to the team's bowling attack. He has the tendency to trick the batsmen with his pace as not many expect him to bowl 145 kph with his sedate yet rhythmic run-up. This factor will yet again be on show against Afghanistan. Cautions Pick – Their most effective batsman in the lineup, Rahmat Shah scored just 8 runs in the last three games. He has not been in fine touch since landing in England which cost the Afghans a lot. My XI – Joe Root (Captain), Jonny Bairstow (Vice-Captain), Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Rashid Khan, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Hazratullah Zazai, Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan, Najibullah Zadran

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on June 17, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on June 17 Windies and Bangladesh will lock horns on Monday for the fourth time in a month or so. The Tigers defeated them three times including the final in the tri-series in Ireland but the World Cup pressure would be completely different. Moreover, the Caribbean side playing the tournament is different as well and won’t carry any baggage of the recent losses. Also, both the teams are desperate for victory having lost their way after starting the World Cup on a high. There will be a few changes in the Bangladesh team it seems after the way they were pummelled by England in the previous encounter. Shakib Al Hasan’s fitness is also a concern but the all-rounder must have got enough time to recover. Sabbir Rahman and Rubel Hossain are likely to be included to bolster respective departments. Windies, on the other hand, might play an all-pace attack to rattle the opposition. Best economical pick – Shai Hope averages a staggering 94.57 against Bangladesh, almost twice his overall career average of 49.72. West Indies, who lost to Australia and England due to lack of partnerships with the bat, need someone to play a long innings - who better than Shai Hope to do that? Top captains & vice captains – A key middle-order batsman, Mushfiqur Rahim, along with Shakib, laid the foundation for Bangladesh's win over South Africa with a steady innings of 78. Mushfiqur, who has scored five half-centuries in his last ten outings against West Indies, averaging 63.71 in that time, will aim for a big innings on Monday. Shakib Al Hasan might not have the kind of start he’d have expected with the ball. But, with the willow in hand, he’s just been unstoppable. After registering two half-centuries in the first two games, the southpaw made it big and got to a wonderful hundred against England. He will continue to be the key in the Bangladesh middle-order. Smart pick – Andre Russell has looked to swing at everything thus far in the tournament. He still seems to be in a T20 mode and hasn’t really adapted to the situation of the game. Thus, he should look to do a better job and play according to the situation of the game. With the ball, the all-rounder has been doing a fair job and will have a critical role to play. Cautions Pick – Tamim Iqbal is one of the senior-most batsmen in the Bangladesh line-up and was expected to play a big role in the tournament. However, he failed to live up to the expectations thus far. The left-hander has often got out near scores of 20 and has to perform better and provide his team with a good start. My XI – Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Shakib al Hasan (Vice-Captain), Shai Hope, Andre Russell, Soumya Sarkar, Chris Gayle, Mosaddek Hossain, Sheldon Cottrell, Mustafizur Rahman, Oshane Thomas, Shimron Hetmyer
