Expect the spinners from both sides to be amongst the wickets. Also, it’s important to pick the right combination of all-rounders from both teams.
Expect a very slow and sluggish wicket in Dubai for this game, and the spinners are likely to give more points as compared to the pacers. Remember, Gayle and Andre Russell won’t be playing in this series.
Expect nothing but a spinner friendly surface in Kanpur and it’s important that you make a fantasy team with a few spinners from both sides in it. Barring Kane Williamson, we don’t see any other Kiwi batsman scoring much at the Green Park.
Both teams are experimenting with some new names for this series. We would recommend you to carefully examine some scorecards before you decide your final team. Also, keep a close tab on the poor Irish weather.
Expect another flat wicket at Leeds and once again the batsmen will remain in focus for fantasy cricket. England have already won the series and that might tempt them to change their playing 11. On the other hand, expect shuffling to happen in the Pakistani camp.
Expect another batting wicket at Lord’s. That said, we can expect some thunderstorms and that might completely change the fantasy equation. Pakistan might contemplate a change or two.
St.Lucia have been in terrific form lately and after a series of wins, they are unlikely to change their West Indian players. That said, the South African cricket board has called all their players back home and that could mean, Morne Morkel, David Miller and Trinibago’s Hashim Amla might all miss this encounter. Also, consider picking the leading all-rounders for this round.
The first match will be played at Southampton and that means there is a slim chance that the weather might intervene. Expect the England batsman to pile on the runs and their seamers too might be amongst the wickets. Don’t pick teams by based on what happened in Ire v Pak ODI.
The second ODI between Aus & Sri too will be staged at Colombo and this contest is going to be played on a different surface as compared to the first game. Expect the weather to intervene, and it’s better to pick players accordingly.
The first ODI between Aus & Sri will be played at Colombo and one can expect a decent wicket for the batsmen to bat on. However, the Lankan spinners will have their say too. Plenty of options in all categories, the key is to pick as per the conditions.
