CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 20, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on February 20 England’s tour of West Indies hasn’t been a pleasant one so far. The three-match Test series saw the visitors lose the first two games as the English batsmen had no answer to West Indies’ pace attack. Although they made an impressive comeback in the third match, they lost the series. But with the five-match ODI series beginning on Wednesday, February 20, England has another chance of picking up some momentum as the World Cup approaches. West Indies is a formidable limited overs side and beating them at home won’t be easy. The series promises to be another feisty international affair as two good teams clock horns. With World Cup in the mind for both the teams, England and West Indies have named their strongest squad for the series. The hosts have called up veteran Chris Gayle for the ODI series as warm-up for the intercontinental tournament. England on the other hand are fairly comfortable with the squad, naming a full-strength side for the five match ODI series. Best economical pick – With an impressive performance in this season’s Big Bash League, Tom Curran has rightfully earned a spot in the England international side. Curran who is a great asset for any side in the limited overs will be England’s wild card and could be an unlikely impact player in the series. Top captains & vice captains – England has an array of great ODI batsmen and it is often difficult to pick one over the other. Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Joe Root are all formidable choices, but Jonny Bairstow’s incredible form makes him captain of our Fantasy Cricket team for West Indies vs England 1st ODI. Shai Hope has two centuries and a 43 in his last three ODIs and he carries on his shoulders the hopes of a strong Windies show should this power-packed England line-up post a daunting total. His ODI average of 47.48 is commendable. Smart pick – Ever since Shimron Hetmyer made an impact in the tour of India last year, the Windies batsman has been simply unstoppable in the limited overs. His technique is remarkable and has become an integral part of the squad. With Gayle on the roster, picking Hetmyer over him hasn’t been easy but his form has made it easier for us to pick. Cautions Pick – England is quite a dominant side in 50-over cricket. Eoin Morgan is back in the camp along with some other limited-overs specialists. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will open the innings. Alex Hales might miss out with Roy-Bairstow doing well at the top of the order. My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Shai Hope (Vice-Captain), Tom Curran, Shimron Hetmyer, Adil Rashid, Ashley Nurse, John Campbell, Moeen Ali, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Chris Gayle

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 20, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Bangladesh on February 20 The Blackcaps are set to host the Bangladesh Tigers for the final ODI at University Oval, Dunedin. With the series in their kitty, the home side would be eyeing a clean sweep heading into the third ODI. This will be the last ODI before both the teams lock horns in white kits. The visitors would be hoping to end this series on a winning note to gain some momentum for the test series. Both the teams have a lot to play for, despite it being a dead rubber contest. The Kiwis sealed the series comfortably in the second game, thrashing Bangladesh by 8 wickets. They won both the games comprehensively to take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match series. On the other hand, Bangladesh have struggled in all three departments since arriving in New Zealand. The visitors have been outplayed by the Kiwis in both the ODIs. The Bangladeshi Tigers would be hoping to win the final game and end this series on a high. Best economical pick – Mohammad Mithun has been the only positive for the Tigers in the ongoing series, having hit a fifty in both the matches. The consistent failure of the openers is hurting the visitors badly and they will desperately need a strong outing from their openers, Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das. Top captains & vice captains – Martin Guptill is looking in ominous form. The opener cracked a hundred in both games and will be expected to provide another strong performance in the third ODI. He led both the chases from the front to take his side over the line. Tamim Iqbal is Bangladesh's trump card. He has been one of Bangladesh's most reliable batsmen over the years and he will be keen to show his mettle in the third game after a couple of poor knocks. If he gets going, the visitors can be sure to have a solid platform, which they have missed so far. Smart pick – In spite of his lack of form in the previous two ODIs, Mushfiqur Rahim still remains one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen in world cricket. His ability to keep the scoreboard ticking is crucial and with a flat pitch on offer, his contributions could be crucial to the Bangladesh team. Cautions Pick – Kane Williamson has been rested for the third ODI and Tom Latham will lead the Kiwis in his absence. So don’t pick Kane Williamson in your cricbattle fantasy team. My XI – Martin Guptill (Captain), Tamim Iqbal (Vice-Captain), Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim, Lockie Ferguson, Mustafizur Rahman, Matt Henry, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Tom Latham, Sabbir Rahman

  • Dale Steyn

  • Kuldeep Yadav

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Kuldeep Yadav was rested in the first ODI and that affected India very badly in the middle overs. He is one of the few bowlers who have the ability to pick up the wickets at a regular interval during the middle overs. Kuldeep Yadav should be back to the playing for the second ODI to contain the Windies batsmen from scoring more runs in the middle overs.

  • Dasun Shanaka
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Niroshan Dickwella is expected to come into the side in place of Dasun Shanaka. For all the talent and the skill that he possesses, Shanaka hasn’t been able to deliver either with the bat or the ball. He just bowled three overs and was run out after an extended struggle with the willow against Bangladesh.
  • Akila Dananjaya
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : The Sri Lankan mystery off-spinner Akila Dananjaya bagged 14 wickets in the recently concluded five-match series against South Africa, claiming six wickets in the final ODI and bamboozling the South African batsmen for a paltry total of 121. Possessing a classic leg-spinner, a carrom ball, and a splendid googly up his sleeve, Akila Dhananjaya is definitely a key player in this Sri Lankan squad for this tournament.
     
    Akila Dananjaya will not be available for the matches between 15th and 17th as his wife is expected to give birth to their first child.
