CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Bangladesh vs West Indies on May 17,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Bangladesh vs West Indies on May 17 Bangladesh has arguably been the most dominant team in the ongoing triangular ODI series. The Mashrafe Mortaza-led unit is the only unbeaten team and hasn’t had to strain in any of their three victories thus far. Their batting, especially the top order has looked ominous and the bowling unit has also stepped up with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed and the skipper amongst the wickets. The Final will be a different ball game altogether and the Tigers will play it against the Windies on Friday at The Village in Dublin. In the league stage, Bangladesh got the better of the Caribbean team on two instances and is again deemed to be the favourites in the all-important encounter. The Windies don’t seem to be in great shape with some of their big names not taking part in the tournament. The track at The Village is speculated to be another batting-friendly one. Bowlers won’t get much assistance from the deck. All the three matches in the tournament at the venue were won by the team, batting second. Best economical pick – My pick would be Sunil Ambris. Ever since Campbell was injured after a fantastic first match, Ambris has stepped up to the opener’s slot and made it count. He played a match-winning innings of 148 off 126 balls to take the Windies home against a fighting Ireland. The fact that he opens the batting is another factor going in his favour. Top captains & vice captains – I simply have to go with Shai Hope after the form he has displayed in this series so far. 2 centuries by the opening batsman in 3 innings is unbeatable. I also make Hope my captain for this Final encounter. The Bangladeshi opener, Tamim Iqbal walks into my squad as Vice-Captain on the back of a good performance against West Indies where he scored 80 off 116 balls. Tamim opens the batting and can be huge fantasy potential again. Smart pick – Jason Holder might be a Smart pick for this match. He showed me glimpses of form with the bat in the last match. He has been bowling 10 overs and picking up a few wickets as well. Since budget is not a constraint in this match, I can afford to have Holder at 9.5 credits. Cautions Pick – A side strain that Shakib Al Hasan sustained in the previous match against Ireland forced him to retire hurt mid-way during his innings. The physio will have a look at the all-rounder on the eve of the match and take a call over his participation in the final. The management may not want to risk him ahead of the World Cup. My XI – Shai Hope (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Jason Holder, Sunil Ambris, Soumya Sarkar, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashley Nurse, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Ireland vs Bangladesh on May 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Ireland vs Bangladesh on May 15 Last night, Bangladesh beat Windies by five wickets and qualified for the final of the Tri-Nation ODI series. On a decent batting wicket, the likes of Mashrafe Mortaza and Mustafizur Rahman restricted the Caribbean batting to 247. Thereafter, half-centuries from Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim guided the Tigers home with 16 deliveries to spare. Bangladesh has 10 points with a NRR of +0.465. It also means that irrespective of the result of the last league game, Mortaza’s men will finish atop the points table. In the meantime, after yesterday’s encounter, Ireland was knocked out of the series. William Porterfield & Co have nothing, but pride to play for now. The first two games of the tri-nation series were played at this venue and the bowlers had to strain hard on the strip. Windies racked up 381 in the first game here and the numbers are a testament to the batting-friendly nature of the deck. Fielding first after winning the toss seems to be the wisest decision, at least for the time being. The last game of the league is scheduled to be played tomorrow between Ireland and Bangladesh at the Clontarf Cricket Club Ground in Dublin. Best economical pick – With six wickets in two games, Mustafizur Rahman has been Bangladesh's leading wicket-taker in this series along with Captain Mashrafe Mortaza. He was expensive in the first game against West Indies but came back strongly in the previous match registering figures of 4/43. With the English conditions suiting fast bowlers, the youngster's form bodes well for his team. Top captains & vice captains – One of Ireland's most experienced batsmen, Paul Stirling's form is critical to the team's success. He failed in the first ODI against West Indies but scored a solid 77 in the next one, a stable innings that laid the foundation for a huge total. If he can get Ireland to a good start on Wednesday, chances are the hosts can interrupt Bangladesh's momentum. Shakib Al Hasan is one of the best all-rounders in the world and should be picked without any hesitation. Smart pick – Bangladesh were brilliant in their first game of the series, shining in all departments to defeat West Indies by eight wickets. Soumya Sarkar made a fluent 73 in that match. Then in their second match he scored 48 runs and in their last game against West Indies he scored a match winning knock of 54 runs off 67 balls. Cautions Pick – Ireland may give Andy McBrine a chance in place of George Dockrell, who hasn’t picked up a wicket thus far, giving away runs at an economy rate of 6.87. Dockrell hasn’t had much to do with the bat either. My XI – Paul Stirling (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan (Vice-Captain), Mustafizur Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Joshua Little, Rubel Hossain, Tamim Iqbal, Gary Wilson, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Andrew Balbirnie

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on May 13,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on May 13 Yesterday, Windies beat Ireland by five wickets and qualified for the final of the tri-nation series. For them, the game won’t have much of a significance and the Caribbean team may give their reserves an opportunity. Their batting has been reasonable, but their bowling has looked a tad clueless when put under pressure. Jason Holder & Co are next scheduled to play Bangladesh at The Village in Dublin. The Tigers, on the other hand, are sitting pretty with six points. Their last game versus Ireland was washed out. With a squad of 19 in their ranks and a maximum of three games left before the World Cup, Bangladesh has a lot of thinking to do. For the time being, Mashrafe Mortaza’s men need only one victory in order to book themselves a berth in the final and also knock Ireland out of the tournament. The pitch in Dublin is again expected to be a batting-friendly one. Last time, Ireland and the Windies aggregated over 650 runs and bowlers were literally taken apart. The next game is speculated to be no different. Best economical pick – Though he was brought into the side to perform an enforcer's role in the middle overs, it shouldn't be forgotten that Shannon Gabriel can give batsmen a good working over with the new ball as well. He has picked up three of the seven wickets that Windies have taken in the last two games. Gabriel can trouble batsmen with steep bounce, and West Indies might even consider giving him the new ball to change things up. Top captains & vice captains – Shai Hope has had a terrific outing with the bat, registering two brilliant centuries in the first two games. After a whirlwind of an innings in the first game against Ireland in the first game, he piled up a well-composed 109 in a losing cause against the Tigers. With Campbell’s fitness still in doubt, they need another explosive knock from young Barbados cricketer. Not only does Tamim Iqbal often lay a solid foundation, but he is also capable of accelerating when required. He did a bit of both in the first match against Windies, starting cautiously before working up a nice flow en route to 80 runs. Smart pick – Bangladesh were brilliant in their first game of the series, shining in all departments to defeat West Indies by eight wickets. Soumya Sarkar made a fluent 73 in that match. Cautions Pick – The game is an inconsequential one for the Windies and they could make some changes. Darren Bravo scored 26 runs in two games and Shane Dowrich may be tested out. My XI – Shai Hope (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Shannon Gabriel, Soumya Sarkar, Sunil Ambris, John Campbell, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Jason Holder, Sabbir Rahman

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 12,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 12 We are finally at the stage in the Indian T20 League 2019 which we all were waiting. The Indian T20 League 2019 final is here, and the top 2 teams from the league stages will be competing for the biggest T20 prize in world cricket. Mumbai took the direct route of getting to the finals by winning a thriller against the Chennai in the first qualifier. That result meant that the Chennai had to beat a spirited young Delhi team yesterday at the second qualifier. Both Chennai and Mumbai are set to lock horns and take hold of the trophy for the 4th time. The defending champions, Chennai, will win a second time in a row if they win this season. Mumbai have already beaten Chennai at the first qualifier. Hence, they will draw confidence from the kind of performance they produced with Chennai. Both the teams have played 27 matches together in the earlier matches, out of which Mumbai succeeded in winning 16 games while Chennai has won 11. Tomorrow is the fourth encounter between the two during this season. During the three earlier meetings this season, Mumbai has succeeded in beating Chennai. Best economical pick – Deepak Chahar has been CSK’s go-to man for breakthroughs early on. He has the ability to swing it up front and Dhoni, unlike the previous year, likes to hold one Chahar over back for the death. Top captains & vice captains – In his last four matches, Faf du Plessis has scores of 39, 96, 6 and 50. The numbers show the fact that the South African batsman is in ominous touch. In the second Qualifier, Faf got a much-needed half-century. Moreover, the last time he batted at the RGI Stadium, he racked up 45 runs off 31 balls. Quinton de Kock has been MI’s best batsman in the top order. He’s led the charge with 500 runs this season. He will be looking to cap off a brilliant season on a high and score as many runs as possible and set the tone of the innings as well at the top. Smart pick – The middle-order finally seems to be getting their act together for MI. Suryakumar Yadav finally ended his run of getting the middling scores of 20s and 30s. He scored a match-winning 71 as he took MI home. It wasn’t an easy surface to bat on but he played beautifully. Cautious Pick – Rohit Sharma blew a tad hot and cold in the first half of the tournament, but he gradually got the substantial scores under his belt. In 14 matches, he has scored 390 runs at an average of 30. Nevertheless, all those efforts would be of no use, if he fails to take his team home. In Mumbai’s previous game versus the Super Kings, Rohit got out for four to Deepak Chahar. My XI – Faf du Plesis (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav, Lasith Malinga, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni, Shane Watson

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Delhi on May 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Delhi on May 10 The 12th edition of the IPL has found its top three teams. No matter what happens from here on, all the three sides should feel proud of what they have achieved. The Delhi Capitals overcame the massive threat from Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday and they need to take down one the most consistent teams of the IPL, Chennai Super Kings to go into the finals. CSK, somehow, have failed to go past the Mumbai Indians outfit this season and now have been forced to take the long route to make it to the final. They have thrashed the Capitals in both the encounters this season. Rather a thumping loss at the hands of CSK was the reasons why the Shreyas Iyer-led side slumped to the third position in the points table and had to play the eliminator. MS Dhoni would want his Dad’s Army to put their best foot forward having backed them throughout the season. Best economical pick – The Delhi camp will be extremely happy with the way Prithvi Shaw played in the Eliminator. He’s been striking the ball well but has been finding ways to get out. However, he struck a fluent half-century which gave DC a rousing start to their chase. Top captains & vice captains – Shikhar Dhawan has been scoring runs consistently this season. With a place in the finals up for grabs, the southpaw will be dangerous for the opposition. He has often provided the team with extremely good starts and will look to do the same again. If Dhawan plays the big knock, he might well make the game one-sided. Faf du Plessis ended the league stage with a masterful 96 against the KXIP. He has amassed 320 runs so far in 10 outings and his calm head is key for CSK. With Watson struggling big time, the South African should look to play cautiously. He shifts the gears superbly after crossing the 50-run mark and on a pitch like Vizag, it is important for a set player to stay in the middle. Smart pick – Rishabh Pant was the game-changer in the Eliminator. His manic 49 took Delhi on the doorstep of victory. He’s been very good and will be hoping to continue his good form. Cautious Pick – Shane Watson seems to be struggling big time. He’s just not able to get runs. He might’ve aggregated 268 runs this season but that’s largely come from one knock of 96. What it’s done is it has also put some bit of pressure on Faf du Plessis who has looked like the team’s second-best batsman. My XI – Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Faf du Plesis (Vice-Captain), Rishabh Pant, Prithivi Shaw, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Ishant Sharma, Keemo Paul, Harbhajan Singh, Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on May 8,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on May 8 Indian Premier League has entered its business-end and on May 8th, the action becomes even tense as the Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad battle it out for a place in the Qualifier 2. Third-placed Delhi will head into the game on the back of a thumping win over the Rajasthan Royals, while SRH made the cut even after losing their last two games by virtue of having a higher net run rate than KKR and the Kings XI Punjab. This high-octane clash will take place in Visakhapatnam and both these sides, who have fought their way into the playoffs, will want to move one step closer to realizing their dream of winning the title. Best economical pick – Delhi Capitals have been dealt a huge blow as their star player Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out of the season due to an injury. Yet, the side gave a resounding statement as they bundled out the RR batsmen in their last group stage game. Ishant Sharma's expertise with the new ball will be key against the SRH top order which looks unsettled, post the departure of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Top captains & vice captains – The young batting unit of the Delhi Capitals have done a remarkable job this season and they have somehow got the runs whenever the team needed them. Shikhar Dhawan has come into his element after a slow start and he will be key against his former side. He is on the verge of surpassing 500-mark in an IPL season only for the second time in his career. He currently has 486 runs to his name and most of these runs came at crucial junctures. Shreyas Iyer is the second highest run-scorer in the side, only behind Dhawan. He registered 442 runs this season at a decent average of 34. He played some outstanding second-fiddle knocks to Pant and Dhawan, who have been the pillars of their batting department this season. Smart pick –SRH's bowling hasn't been what it used to be last season and if they want to go back to their prime, now might be the best time to do it. Mohammad Nabi will be the main weapon for them in Visakhapatnam, which has been an off-spinner's paradise and he will look to get a couple of early wickets and put the pressure on Delhi's young batting unit. Cautious Pick – Vijay Shankar was asked to play a crucial role in SRH’s middle order and he failed big time. For a player who finds himself in the Indian World Cup squad and expected to take responsibility at the crucial No.4 spot, not registering a fifty-plus score is a major disappointment. With 219 runs in 14 games for the Sunrisers, Shankar clearly hasn’t contributed as much as the fans had expected him to. My XI – Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Shreyas Iyer (Vice-Captain), Mohammad Nabi, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Rashid Khan, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Wriddhiman Saha

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 7,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 7 After a month and a half of the enthralling league stage, IPL 2019 is set to enter the playoff stage. Chennai Super Kings will battle it out with the arch-rivals Mumbai Indians at the Chepauk stadium in order to clinch a berth in the finals. The defending champions would be hoping to avenge their previous two defeats against Mumbai while the visitors will be confident of making into the finals for the fifth time in their franchise history. We can expect another thrilling encounter when both these heavyweights lock horns in the first qualifier. Chennai Super Kings have been the most consistent team in IPL history, but their recent sloppy performances are a sign of worry. The hosts have to bat out of their skin if they want to reverse the tide against the Mumbai Indians. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians have had a sensational campaign on the back of some scintillating performances. After a slow start, the Blue Army regained their poise to finish at the top spot in the points table. Best economical pick – Lasith Malinga returned to the playing field for Mumbai Indians after serving as a mentor last season. He has formed a perfect combination with Jasprit Bumrah to trouble the batsman. His spells against Bangalore have proven to be decisive at the end. Top captains & vice captains – MS Dhoni was at his prolific best this season and this perhaps was one of his most memorable outings with the bat. Time and again, he produced some mind-boggling finishes for CSK. He missed a couple of matches due to some back struggles but managed to amass 368 runs at an average in excess of 120. Hardik Pandya‘s unparalleled form kept the whole of India on the edge of their seat. It was his best performance with the bat in an IPL season, amassing 380 runs at a strike rate of 198 and a healthy average of 47.50. Despite being a little expensive with the cherry, he picked up 14 wickets. Smart pick – With 21 wickets to his name in 14 matches at an average of 16.52, Imran Tahir is just 4 wickets short of Rabada and is likely to catch up with him as the fast bowler is no longer available. His economy of 6.51 is one of the best in the tournament. Cautious Pick – Shane Watson has encountered one of his worst outings in the IPL ever. He scored 258 runs in 14 matches for the side and there was a score of 96 included in those 258 runs which came against Sunrisers. His average this season was under 20 and strike rate too was uncharacteristically under 125. My XI – MS Dhoni (Captain), Hardik Pandya (Vice-Captain), Imran Tahir, Lasith Malinga, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Faf du Plessis, Deepak Chahar, Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar, Krunal Pandya

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Kolkata on May 5,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Kolkata on May 5 Kolkata Knight Riders managed to arrest their slump with back-to-back victories. Last time around, Dinesh Karthik and Co defeated the Kings XI Punjab by seven wickets at the PCA Stadium and would be high on confidence. Shubman Gill’s unbeaten half-century ensured that the Knight Riders went over the line in their must-win encounter to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the playoffs. KKR are next scheduled to play the second game of tomorrow’s doubleheader against Mumbai Indians whom they defeated in Kolkata. Even at the Eden Gardens, Gill played a crucial role. As far as Mumbai are concerned, the franchise has not only qualified for the next round but is also in contention for being the table toppers. In their last game, MI got over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super Over. Best economical pick – Sandeep Warrier replaced Prasidh Krishna in the playing XI in the last two games, and was Kolkata’s best bowling performer in both the games. Among Kolkata’s lacklustre bowlers, Sandeep will once again have to do his best at the Wankhede. Top captains & vice captains – The mighty West Indian Andre Russell has been the only consistent batsman for the KKR this season. He has scored 510 runs from 13 games at a strike rate of over 200, winning several matches for his team single-handedly. If he gets going, KKR know that no score is out of reach for them. Captain Rohit Sharma did not do anything substantial in the first meeting with Kolkata this year and was also dismissed very early in Mumbai’s last game against Hyderabad. However, he has an overall good record in both Wankhede as well as against Kolkata and will be looking to lead from the front in this crucial encounter through which they can remain on Top 2. Smart pick – With 373 runs from 13 games at a staggering strike-rate of 197, Hardik Pandya has proved why the Mumbai franchise have so much faith in him. He has also been handy with the ball as he scalped 12 wickets in the tournament so far. Cautious Pick – This is the favourite phase for the Mumbai. They normally up their game during the business end of the tournament and believe in going with the same team more often than not. With the departure of Jason Behrendorff, they are lacking in a specialist bowler. Barinder Sran hasn’t done much in the two matches he’s played. My XI – Andre Russell (Captain), Rohit Sharma (Vice-Captain), Hardik Pandya, Sandeep Warrier, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Rahul Chahar, Quinton de Kock, Dinesh Karthik, Nitish Rana

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Chennai on May 5,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Chennai on May 5 For the second season running, Kings XI Punjab has squandered a fantastic opportunity to enter the playoffs despite getting off to a positive start in the season. They were placed very well in the points table at the end of 20 matches and it seemed like they will be one of the top contenders to win the title. Things haven’t panned that way for them and as it stands, they are staring at another embarrassing exit. Well, the Chennai unit has looked formidable as always this season. Despite their little problems, they managed to overhaul the weaknesses some way or the other. They have a new player stepping up every game, which is another major reason behind their success since coming back in 2018. Given their place in the top two is pretty much assured, they will play some free-flowing cricket, which won’t do any good to KXIP’s conquest. Best economical pick – Mohali historically has provided great seam and bounce for the fast bowlers, which should keep Deepak Chahar very much interested. The youngster has enjoyed a terrific season for the 3-time champions, picking wickets at regular intervals at the top. His exploits with the new ball received great compliments from legendary cricketers and he would be keen to finish the group stages on a high. Top captains & vice captains – The Universe Boss has can be a game-changer in this situation for the Kings XI. While they are chasing the impossible dream, it is important for them to score well in excess of 200 given they’re batting first. If Chris Gayle gets going and puts on a show at the PCA stadium, things might get a little interesting. Imran Tahir is surely a contender for the purple cap with Kagiso Rabada leaving to South Africa on Friday. The South African spinner has 21 wickets in his kitty so far and has picked some pretty big wickets this season. Smart pick – KL Rahul has been brilliant this season, once again registering over 500 runs for the team. He also registered his first IPL hundred this season at the Wankhede and is keen to produce something stellar for one final time this season. The Indian World Cup squad member is riding high on confidence and maybe will provide some fireworks. Cautious Pick – Ambati Rayudu’s struggle goes parallelly with his heartbreaks this season, but he might not keep his place for long if he doesn’t chip in with a big score soon. My XI – Chris Gayle (Captain), Imran Tahir (Vice-Captain), KL Rahul, Deepak Chahar, Faf du Plessis, Mohammed Shami, Sam Curran, Nicholas Pooran, Kedar Jadhav, Mayank Agarwal, MS Dhoni
