Continue to expect surprising changes in team selection from Ireland, especially now that they are 1-0 down in the series. It is going to be a tight budget round. However, avoid experimenting too much.
Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Marsh won't be playing this game. Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins might come in for the Ranchi game. For India, Murli Vijay is likely to return as an opener. We expect the pitch to crumble quickly.
Trent Boult and Ross Taylor have been ruled out of this game. The weather is likely to be rough too. Also, SA might field an unchanged line-up. We expect some seam assistance for the pacers. Kiwi batting looks a little weak.
This will be a tight budget round and we would suggest not to make any silly errors. Also, don't experiment too much as there could be some selection surprises.
Mahmadullah won't feature in this Test as he has been sent home. The Bangladeshi top-order did well in the last game and you would do well to pick their openers.
There might not be too many changes in both teams. The track played pretty good for the batsmen. Expect some fireworks from the batsmen once again.
Alex Hales is passed fit and is likely to open in place of Sam Billings. Also, Liam Plunkett is having stomach issues and might make way for either Curran or Ball. Windies pacer Shanon Gabriel is out with injury. Alzarri Joseph might get a look in.
Expect a few surprising selection calls from both teams as we have seen in the past. This is going to be a tight budget round and be careful while picking the fringe Ireland players.
Morkel will return to the SA playing 11 after a long gap. The Kiwis might decide between Neesham or Colin de. The weather for the first three days looks ok, but doesn’t get too promising after that. The wicket might aid the seamers initially, but likely to settle down nicely for the batsmen later on.
The pitch will assist the spinners. That said, the top-order batsmen from both sides could end up playing a crucial role in fantasy cricket. Also, expect some rain at Galle as the match progress.
