Continue picking more England players ahead of the Windies blokes. The England bowlers & top-order batsmen will generate handy fantasy points.
Expect some surprising calls in the selection process from both teams like we saw in the first ODI. Our suggestion would be to play safe.
This will be a decider and although the weather is set to be reasonably clear, expect some changes in both camps, especially in the bowling department.
The Aussies have already named their playing 11 and the Indians might bring in Karun Nair and Bhuvaneshwar in place of Jayant Yadav and Ishant Sharma.
At this stage of the league, don’t experiment too much with players from both teams. Both teams might also not make many changes to their line-up, unless for an injury.
The England line-up is reasonably settled, but the hosts might continue to experiment from their 13-man squad. Don’t pick more than 4 Windies players for this round. England blokes more likely to give you more fantasy points. The weather is also set to be fairly clear in Antigua. The wicket will not have too much pace.
While the Irish have more match winners in their ranks, UAE have genuine utility cricketers in their camp. Expect the slow bowlers to strike in the first ODI. Also, don’t try and experiment too much with team composition.
Karachi have some serious fire power in their batting and we would advise you to pick them in your teams. Also, they have plenty of options in the seam bowling too. Remember, Nicholas Pooran might debut for the Islamabad team today.
There is a lot of confusion surrounding a few overseas players for the game between Peshawar & Quetta. As per reports, Bangladesh players Shakib, Tamim & Mahmadullah won’t be featuring in this clash as they have to get ready for international duties. T Perera too won’t be playing this game
Tom Latham has been omitted from the NZ squad. Martin Guptill will replace him at the top. Also, Jeetan Patel might get a chance to play as a second spinner for the hosts. For SA though, we don’t expect any major changes.
