CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Sri Lanka on November 24,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Sri Lanka on November 24 They were outplayed till the first session of the fourth day, but in a very short period, India turned things around in their favor with ease. They almost managed to script one of the greatest comebacks in cricket history if it hadn’t been for the bad light sabotaging their ambitions. All those who questioned their number one status after a dismal rendition in the first half of the Test match got a fitting reply and Sri Lanka managed to survive a major humiliation. The Lankan Lions were caught in a predicament and for about an hour on the final day, they were left delirious about the result. A healthy 122-run first innings lead wasn’t sufficient for them to hunt the hosts down and with the momentum shifting to the other dressing room, their task will only get difficult in the second Test at Nagpur. · Best economical pick – Suranga Lakmal grabbed plenty of eyeballs owing to his stellar performance with the red cherry. His bowling was right on the money as he ripped through the Indian batting line-up in their first innings. In his initial spell on the first day, he scalped 3 wickets without spending a run after 6 overs. Firing away consistently at the batsmen on an uncharacteristically bouncy Eden Gardens’ pitch. · Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli announced himself back in form with a thundering ton in the second innings. His ton set up the tone for the final hours of play in the match as the audiences got engrossed in the game assuming there could be a serious match on the cards. Lokesh Rahul was stunned by Suranga Lakmal’s pace and swing on the very first ball of the Kolkata Test. He had to walk back to the pavilion for a golden duck. He managed to cover up for it in the second innings though. The Karnataka lad scored a well-timed fifty in the second innings to set up a firm base for the Indian total. · Smart pick – Under pressure, Niroshan Dickwella struck few lusty blows on the final day and he was pivotal in their historic triumph back in UAE. The Islanders are still struggling to get out of the transition phase and he might be one of the architects of a modern Lankan unit. · Cautious Pick – Ajinkya Rahane was the solitary failure in the Indian middle-order in the first Test. The Mumbai lad is experienced enough to bounce back and announce himself back in form in the Nagpur Test. Rahane will be hoping to score big runs and get back in form as soon as possible since the South African tour is around the corner as well. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), L Rahul (Vice-Captain), Suranga Lakmal, Niroshan Dickwella, C Pujara, Mohammed Shami, R Ashwin, Dilruwan Perera, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Murali Vijay, Umesh Yadav

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on November 23,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on November 23 It’s party time at the land of Kangaroos as arch-rivals England and Australia lock horns for one of the greatest cricketing spectacle, The Ashes. The 70th edition overall and the 35th hosted by Australia will see a lot of drama unfold. There’s never any dearth or drama when it comes to the Ashes and the same can be said about this edition. The English had to deal with a lot of off-field issues before entering the land of Kangaroos. With their talismanic all-rounder, Ben Stokes missing out, there seems to be an irreplaceable void created in their team. · Best economical pick – Josh Hazlewood represents a different threat to England’s batsmen with his metronomic line and length. The sixth-ranked bowler in Tests represents a handy foil to the explosiveness of new-ball partner Starc. In 31 Tests, the right fast-medium pacer has captured 118 wickets at 25.75, including 16 in four Ashes Tests at 25.75. · Top captains & vice captains – Steve Smith the world’s number one ranked Test batsman took over the Test captaincy from Michael Clarke at the end of the last Ashes series in 2015, and will be leading Australia for the first time in Tests against England. Has scored 20 100s in 56 Tests at 59.66, with a highest score of 215 in the last Ashes series at Lord’s. He has scored five centuries in 18 Ashes Tests at 54.74. Joe Root is the most talented batsman in the England squad as well as having the responsibility of being skipper, with this his first overseas series as captain. Since taking over as captain earlier this year, he has averaged more than 60 in Tests. · Smart pick – Mitchell Starc, who is Australia’s pace spearhead with an incredible strike-rate. In 36 Tests Starc has captured 148 wickets at 28.35, with 29 of those coming in eight Ashes Tests. This will be his first home Ashes series and he has taken half his Test wickets in Australia. Starc heads into the series with back-to-back hat-tricks for New South Wales in one Sheffield Shield match this season. · Cautious Pick – The entire fraternity was surprised with Tim Paine entering the Aussie squad, which was not well received by some senior cricketers. In the selectors and the captain’s defense, he’s the only choice right now and part-time keepers like Handscomb or Bancroft cannot be trusted with such huge games with due respect. He last scored a first class century in 2006. My XI – Steve Smith (Captain), Joe Root (Vice-Captain),Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Jonny Bairstow, Cameron Bancroft, Stuart Broad, Jake Ball, Patrick Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Dawid Malan

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Sri Lanka on November 16,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Sri Lanka on November 16 The 3-match Test series between India and Sri Lanka is scheduled to begin from 16th November. It promises to be a good series because both the teams have pints to prove and starting a new era. Sri Lanka have to overcome their failures in the recent past and also their historical record to have a chance of winning the Test series or even win a game in India. The Lankan side lost 19 of their last 22 International games including nine out of nine against India at home recently. The Island side is yet to win a Test match on Indian soil and will be looking to end the jinx something teams full of greats from their nation couldn’t achieve. While Team India is oozing with confidence following their ODI and T20I triumph against New Zealand, Sri Lankans had an awful time in the limited overs fixtures against Pakistan. However, the Lankan Lions will be looking to make amends and put up a good show this time around. · Best economical pick – In between the tough times for Sri Lanka in all forms of cricket during their perennial transitional phase, one man who has taken up the responsibility of amassing the hard runs is their Test opener Dimuth Karunaratne who has proven to become their batting mainstay off late. He has a good run with the bat in the recently concluded series against Pakistan in the second Test match at Dubai where he slammed 196. · Top captains & vice captains – Ravichandran Ashwin’s bowling average of 21.58 against Sri Lanka in Test cricket is the best for any player in India-Sri Lanka Test matches. Ashwin’s SR of 41.16 in IND-SL Tests is also the best for any player. Cheteshwar Pujara impressed one and all by notching two hundreds in the first two Tests of the last test series against Sri Lanka and these days, he tends to score the runs a lot quicker than he did in the past. Pujara scored 309 runs at an average of 77.25 and played a crucial role in helping India get gigantic scores in the first two Tests. · Smart pick – Rangana Herath is one of the best spinners operating around the world right now. Recently he led the Sri Lankan spin bowling department and helped the team to a 2-0 victory over Pakistan in the UAE. The old warhorse picked up 16 wickets in the away series against the Pakistani team that is considered to be good players of spin. · Cautious Pick – Dilruwan Perera’s bowling average of 190 in Tests against India is the 2nd worst for any player in India-Sri Lanka Test matches. So be careful before trading him in your team. My XI – C Pujara (Captain), R Ashwin (Vice-Captain), R Herath, D Karunaratne, S Samarawickrama, L Rahul, Suranga Lakmal, Ravindra Jadeja, Niroshan Dickwella, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 7,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 7 India will look to overcome New Zealand in the third T20I at Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday to bag the series which is tied 1-1 at the moment. India won the first T20I by 53 runs but lost the second T20I by 40 runs. The third T20I is a series decider and India will look to continue their winning momentum in limited-overs cricket. New Zealand have been tough customer in this tour and came back strongly in the second T20I to level the series. · Best economical pick – Ish Sodhi was arguably the most impressive bowler in the 2nd T20I for the New Zealand team. Sodhi bowled tight lines and kept the run flow in check in the middle overs. He bowled a beauty of a delivery to castle up Hardik Pandya at a crucial juncture of the game. He was very economical with the ball and returned with figures of 1/25 in his allocated 4 overs. · Top captains & vice captains – Although the previous game was a forgettable one, Virat Kohli will take positives from his brilliant innings, which included some stellar cricketing shots. These days, people are getting a feeling that Kohli is on a mission to do something impeccable and the fans would love it if his unknown source of motivation gets him going in the decider. Colin Munro was the star of the 2nd T20I. The dashing left hander, who has the second fastest fifty in T20Is to his name, scored a brilliant ton to propel the New Zealand side to a winning total. He smashed a 54-ball century – his second in T20Is. He ended up with an unbeaten 109 off just 58 deliveries with 7 fours and as many sixes. · Smart pick – Arguably the best Kiwi player on the tour, Trent Boult keeps getting better and better with every passing day. Defending a mammoth target in the Rajkot game, he removed both the openers in his first over and India never really was in the hunting post then. The left-arm seamer might not be the quickest bowler in the side but in terms of consistency, there are very few across the globe who are as good as him. · Cautious Pick – MS Dhoni has been under constant scrutiny for his failure to close matches. In the second T20I, he was seen struggling at the start of his innings. While Team India needed 10 to 12 runs per over to win the match, Dhoni failed to play his part with skipper Virat Kohli at the other end and that took the game away from them. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Colin Munro (Vice-Captain), Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Y Chahal, Mitchell Santner, Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, Glenn Phillips, Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 4,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 4 India gave their veteran fast bowler Ashish Nehra a perfect send-off by winning the first T20 international at Delhi by 53 runs. New Zealand are 0-1 down in the three-match series and they will look to bounce back in the second T20I which is scheduled to be played on November 4. India were successful in breaking the T20 jinx against New Zealand with a comfortable 53-run victory in the last game. The hosts will now go into the second T20 international having won three of their last four matches. India are ahead by 1-0 and this will take a lot of pressure off them for this upcoming game. New Zealand on the other hand find themselves in a must-win situation and there will be tension in their dressing room. Martin Guptill is already out of form and now the Indian bowlers have devised a successful strategy to trap Colin Munro. Their pace bowling has been off track in the last two games which is another problem the Kiwis will have to deal with. · Best economical pick – Tom Bruce is renowned for his big hitting. He has been impressive for New Zealand in his short T20 career and this would be his chance to prove that he can be successful at the highest level. The right-hand batsman can prove to be New Zealand’s trump card. · Top captains & vice captains – Indian openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, look set in the opening slot. Both batsmen hammered big runs in the first match. They added a mammoth 158 run stand for the opening wicket – the highest ever T20I partnership for India in the history of the game. Both Dhawan and Rohit scored 80 runs each in the match. There are no points for guessing that they are in a splendid touch. Rohit had earlier scored a ton in the final ODI of the series as well. A game prior to that, Shikhar Dhawan had compiled a well-timed fifty. · Smart pick – Virat Kohli has been having tremendous time with the bat in the recent past. The dynamic batsman arrived in to the T20 series riding on a fine ton in the Kanpur ODI. He continued his good run with the bat and hit three maximums enroot his unbeaten 25 in the first T20I. He will be itching to get more runs under his belt. · Cautious Pick – Martin Guptill is already out of form and now the Indian bowlers have devised a successful strategy to trap him. Martin Guptill is one of the most feared batsmen in the white ball cricket but the Indian bowlers were successful in keeping him quiet throughout the series. He got a decent start in the first ODI, apart from that he failed in the remaining series. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, Tom Bruce, Ish Sodhi, B Kumar, Y Chahal, Mitchell Santner, Tom Latham, Jasprit Bumrah, Ross Taylor

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 1,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 1 After extending their ODI series winning streak at home against New Zealand to seven, Team India will now want to register their maiden T20I win as the Kiwis possess a cent percentage record against the Indian team in this format so far. The series will witness the introduction of few new Indian faces at the International level and Ashish Nehra signing off with the first T20I at his home. India are placed fifth at 116 points and can at best go to the second position with a 3-0 win over New Zealand which will take them to 122 points. New Zealand are the top-ranked side in the shortest format with 125 points but Pakistan have closed in to within one point after securing a 3-0 win in their series against Sri Lanka. · Best economical pick – Yuzvendra Chahal, the leg-spinner who was played well by the visiting team but always found a way to come back and scalp a wicket. He fearlessly tossed up the ball and invited the batsmen to go over the top. Moreover, his economy of less than 5 in the series makes him the go-to bowler of his captain. · Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli looks set at the number three position. He has been in terrific form. Kohli was rewarded the Player of the Series in the ODIs recently owing to his two stellar tons in 3 matches. He is in brilliant form and would be a key player in the middle order. Tom Latham was moved down the order taking into account his ability to play spin which worked wonders for them. Latham just swept away the bowlers in the first match which surprised everyone and also forced India to drop Kuldeep Yadav who had bamboozled Australia with his variations. He also did a decent job behind the wickets and didn’t drop any catches which should have cemented his place in the side. · Smart pick – India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah will head into the series on Wednesday as the number one bowler in the ICC T20I Player Rankings. Bumrah, who attained a career-best third position in the ODI rankings on Monday, has regained the T20I top spot after Pakistan spinner Imad Wasim slipped one place. Bumrah finished the ODI series with 6 wickets at an economy of 4.86 and an amazing average of 23.50. · Cautious Pick – Rohit Sharma’s batting average of 21 in T20Is in India is the lowest for any player. (Min: 10 innings) Rohit scored 336 runs in 18 innings with his 106 against South Africa being his only fifty-plus in India. Dhawan averages 21.2 in India in this format which is the 2nd lowest for any player. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Tom Latham (Vice-Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Santner, Colin Munro, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tim Southee, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson, Ashish Nehra

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on October 29,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on October 29 Team India made a great comeback in the 2nd ODI in Pune against New Zealand after being shocked by the fight shown by the visitors at the Wankhede. With the 3-match series leveled at one apiece, it all boils down to the 3rd and final ODI to be played at the Green Park Stadium, Kanpur this Sunday. Both teams would want to finish the series on a high. Where India have won all the 5 bilateral ODI series against the Kiwis at home, it’s a golden chance for the visitors to inflict their maiden series victory. Going by the intensity of the series so far, the last ODI promises to be a cracker of a game. · Best economical pick – In the recent times, the team has been trying out different batsmen at the number 4 position. In the previous game, they tried Dinesh Karthik. The veteran batsman responded in fine fashion by scoring an unbeaten fifty in the winning cause. He is likely to retain his place in the side and also in the batting position. · Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli has got runs under his belt. He scored a gutsy century in the first ODI. He then backed it up with another decent start at Pune. He was unfortunate to have been dismissed at a time when he had started getting comfortable at the crease. Tom Latham was the star of the show for New Zealand in the first game as he stroked his way to a brilliant century. In the second ODI, he was another visiting batsmen who got a decent start but failed to make it big. Latham was dismissed for 38, but New Zealand would be hoping he anchors the innings in the 3rd game much like the first ODI. · Smart pick – Shikhar Dhawan looked in good form and this comes as a very good news for the Indian team. Dhawan did not allow the opposition bowlers to settle and played his shots at will. He scored a well complied 68 that came of 84 deliveries. He hit five fours and a couple of sixes during his stay at the crease. · Cautious Pick – Rohit Sharma will be under pressure to perform. Albeit he was the top scorer for India in the ODI series against Australia, he has failed to score in the two matches against the Kiwis. With someone like Ajinkya Rahane warming the bench, the pressure surely will be on Rohit to perform in the match. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Tom Latham (Vice-Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Santner, Kedar Jadhav, Ross Taylor, Colin Munro

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan v Sri Lanka on October 27,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan v Sri Lanka on October 27 Pakistan continued to dominate as they defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the first T20 international. Sri Lanka’s batting woes continue to haunt them. Evidently, they are not good enough for the bowling firepower that Pakistan has. As a result, one sided contests are a norm on this tour. Sri Lanka needs a win right about now. Pakistan have now won six out of the eight T20 internationals they have played this year. They did a brilliant job with the ball in the last game restricting Sri Lanka to a paltry 102 before making short work of the target. Sri Lanka had faced just one defeat in their first six T20 internationals this year but now they have only one win in their next five matches. Injury to key players and lack of experience in the side are the major factors that have contributed to their recent downslide. · Best economical pick – After taking a five wicket haul in the final ODI Usman Khan was again impressive with his pace bowling picking up a couple of wickets. Usman Khan finished his spell with an excellent figure of 2/20 and later named man of the match. · Top captains & vice captains – Shoaib Malik has been making handy contributions in the middle order. He scored 42 not-out the other night and there will be high expectations from him as well. Hasan Ali finished with a career best bowling to once again anchor Pakistan's convincing seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first Twenty20. Hasan, who took 14 wickets in Pakistan's preceding 5-0 whitewash of the one-day series, took 3-23 in 3.3 overs as Pakistan skittled Sri Lanka out for a paltry 102 in 18.3 overs. · Smart pick – The hosts were reduced to 18 in 5 overs with two men back in the gallery. Mohammad Hafeez joined the former skipper and both eased their way out. Hafeez chipped in with some boundaries and the game was almost put to bed. Malik and Hafeez added 39 runs for the third wicket and completed the run chase without much fuss. · Cautious Pick – Sarfraz Ahmed making a comeback to team after dropped for last 3 ODIs, once again struggled in his short stay at crease. He played 32 balls to score those 22 runs and able to score only one boundary. My XI – Shoaib Malik (Captain), Hasan Ali (Vice-Captain), Usman Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Danushka Gunathilaka, Vikum Sanjaya, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Seekkuge Prasana, Mahela Udawatte

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Bangladesh on October 26,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Bangladesh on October 26 South Africa completely annihilated Bangladesh in the two-match Test series and the 3-match ODI series as the visiting side never looked threatening about winning any game at any point. In an attempt to salvage some pride after what happened in the ODI series, Bangladesh takes on South Africa in the shortest format. This was one of the few occasions when Bangladesh cricket unit traveled outside for a bilateral tour and this will go down as arguably their worst performance. For a side who are aiming to prove they’re as good as anyone in the world, this is not an ideal result. South Africa on the other side, will be playing without their skipper Faf du Plessis. JP Duminy is likely to take up the captaincy and David Miller’s presence is not confirmed as yet. If Miller won’t play, Mangaliso Mosehle will be making his International debut for the Safaris. · Best economical pick – Mahmudullah is quite an influential presence in the middle-order and played some gems coming in at number 5 and 6. He often plays as a floater as his batting position keeps shuffling according to the situation. But he always reciprocates positively and contributes as much as he can for the side. · Top captains & vice captains – For all those who doubted the legend of ABD, the second ODI at the Boland Park was a tight slap. AB de Villiers remained a peripheral part of the unit for a long period of time, yet, he came up with a mind-boggling 176 off 104 balls to announce his comeback. He loves playing this format and over the years, he is success rate for Royal Challengers or any other T20 team has been outstanding. Hashim Amla has been in great form for his team in both the Test and ODI series and has racked up 492 in the four matches he played against the visiting side including three centuries. · Smart pick – Quinton de Kock was not in great form coming into the series. He had failed to make much impact vs England in England. But he was back to his best in the series vs Bangladesh as he scored a century and a fifty in the 3 match series. · Cautious Pick – Liton Das' spot in the lineup has caused a bit of stress for the men in green. He has failed to create an impact in this tour in the three outings he had. But one cannot deny the vast potential the young man has. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Hashim Amla (Vice-Captain), Quinton de Kock, Mahmudullah, David Miller, Imrul Kayes, Dwaine Pretorius, Aaron Phangiso, Rubel Hossain, Jean-Paul Duminy, Mehedi Hasan

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan v Sri Lanka on October 26,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Pakistan v Sri Lanka on October 26 After being whitewashed 0-5 in the ODI series, Sri Lanka will have resurgence on their mind as they enter the final leg of their tour of UAE and Pakistan. The first game of the three-match T20 international series is set to be played on October 26. Pakistan have had a good year so far when it comes to the shortest version of the game, winning five out of the seven T20 internationals. They were last seen in T20 action against the World XI at home. It was a three-match series which they won 2-1. Sri Lanka have so far played ten T20Is this year out of which they have won six and lost four. However in their previous four encounters, they have managed to win just once. They played their most recent T20I at home against India in which they faced a seven-wicket defeat. · Best economical pick – Shadab Khan is making giant strides in world cricket. He had yet another impressive outing in this particular series. He managed to finish the bowling charts as the second leading wicket taker in the 5 matches. Shadab bagged 10 wickets in the 5 games and bowled with a very impressive average of just over 16. · Top captains & vice captains – Babar Azam shone with the bat in the ODI series and he will be the key for Pakistan at the top. He topped the runs charts with 303 runs which included two centuries and a fifty. Shoaib Malik was also impressive and he will be the team's best man in the middle order. He was arguably at his prime best in the first couple of games. Malik was expected to shoulder the bulk of the responsibility heading in to the series. And the veteran campaigner did that with ease. He hit 161 runs in the series with a best of 81. Malik averaged 80.5 with the bat and that stands as a testimony of his brilliance. · Smart pick – Thisara Perera is vital cog in this inexperienced batting lineup. The skipper can be highly destructive in T20 format and he will be the one to watch out for down the order. Sri Lanka will also have high expectations from him when it comes to bowling. · Cautious Pick – Sarfraz Ahmed did not get a chance to bat in the last three ODIs owing to some serious top order batting by his players. But in the first two games where he batted, he failed to get into double digits. My XI – Babar Azam (Captain),Shoaib Malik (Vice-Captain), Shadab Khan, Thisara Perera, Fakhar Zaman, Dilshan Munaweera, Hasan Ali, Lahiru Gamage, Mohammad Amir, Minod Bhanuka, Seekkuge Prasanna
