Pakistan v Zimbabwe: Players analysis

Mohammad Amir
Amir claimed figures of one for 25 for Pakistan in a seven-wicket win against Zimbabwe in the fourth match of the T20I Tri-Series in Harare on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Amir produced more than decent performance for the Men in Green in a comfortable triumph. During his first outing on the tour, the left-armer looked sharp and claimed a prized scalp of dangerous Tarisai Musakanda. While doing so, Amir also finished as the second-most economical bowler in the match with an economy-rate of 6.25.

Fahim Ashraf
Ashraf claimed figures of one for 24 for Pakistan in a seven-wicket win against Zimbabwe in the fourth match of the T20I Tri-Series in Harare on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ashraf produced a brilliant performance for the visitors in a comfortable win. Even though the right-arm pacer only claimed a wicket, but finished the day as the most economical bowler with an economy-rate of just six. That was not it as Ashraf also bowled 10 dot balls, joint second-most in the match behind teammate Mohammad Amir (11).

Sarfraz Ahmed
Ahmed scored 38 not out off 21 balls with the help of six fours for Pakistan in a seven-wicket win against Zimbabwe in the fourth match of the T20I Tri-Series in Harare on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Ahmed played a real captain’s knock for the team in an important win. The wicketkeeper-batsman came out to bat with the team needing eight runs per over and finished the job in style with a fluent unbeaten 38. It was also Ahmed’s highest score in the tournament so far.

Hussain Talat
Talat scored 44 off 35 balls with the help of one six for Pakistan in a seven-wicket win against Zimbabwe in the fourth match of the T20I Tri-Series in Harare on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Talat produced a responsible knock for Pakistan in an important win. The left-handed batsman looked in control of his innings and made a valuable contribution of 44 in the team’s victory. The most impressive aspect of Talat’s knock was his ability to rotate the strike as he scored nearly 87% of his runs with the help of running between the wickets.

Solomon Mire
Mire scored 94 off 63 with the help of six fours and six sixes for Zimbabwe in a seven-wicket defeat against Pakistan in the fourth match of the T20I Tri-Series in Harare on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mire produced outstanding innings for Zimbabwe in a losing cause. The right-handed batsman looked in supreme tough right from the word go and scored his first half-century in the T20I format. While doing so, Mire also became the player with the highest individual score of 94 for Zimbabwe in the 20-over format.

Players to watch out for:
Xherdan Shaqiri: He was involved in the only goal that Switzerland scored against Brazil the other night. His pace and his presence of mind will come in to play today to get Switzerland those three points.

Granit Xhaka: The Swiss fans will be hoping that the Arsenal mid-fielder gets it right to give the team the important points.

Guzman: In the last game, Croatia did not have a shot on target till their 91st minute. So, it is unlikely that Guzman feature today.

Australia v England, 3rd ODI: Fantasy tips

When: June 19, 2018
Where: Trent Bridge, Nottingham

Preview:
After a worst first match, Australia did well with the bat, thanks to Shaun Marsh’s excellent knock. Other than that, The Roos has failed completely and the absence of David Warner and Steve Smith is hurting them badly.

On the other hand, England is not letting the past demons to hurt them and is doing well in the series. A win here will give them a back to back bilateral series win against Australia.

Players to watch out for:
Jos Buttler: Since his blistering knocks in the IPL, Buttler is having an extraordinary season with the bat. One of the top-scorers for England in both the recently concluded Test series and the current ODI series is also doing an excellent job behind the wickets.

Shaun Marsh: The big brother Marsh has taken the responsibility to hold the middle-order together very well. Though Australia lost the match the other night, Shaun Marsh’s ton will be one of the best outcomes for Australia.

Adil Rashid: Though he went for runs, he has the knack of picking up wickets at the right time. In his ten matches against Australia, Rashid has picked up 17 wickets.

Marcus Stoinis: The Australian all-rounder must utilize this chance to fix his place permanently in the team in the absence of Mitch Marsh. In his last ten matches against England, Stoinis has scored 340 runs and has picked up a few wickets as well.

England v Australia: Players to watch out for

The rivalry is back and this time, it is going to be Australia who will enter the tournament as the underdogs. It will be interesting to see how Australia provide a match-winning performance against the England team that was destroyed by Scotland recently.

Tim Paine: Being the captain of this revamped side, Tim Paine will have to stay till the end to keep the momentum going.

Jonny Bairstow: After scoring an excellent hundred the other night, Bairstow will be the man to watch out for.

Andrew Tye: Backed by the experience of IPL, Tye will be hoping to rattle the England batters.

Joe Root: Despite being the consistent player, Root hasn’t really converted the starts he had.

Ireland v Netherland: Best fantasy pick for today

Simi Singh (Ireland)
Singh toppled three for 23 off 3.5 overs with the ball and top-scored with 57 off 29 not out including four boundaries and three maximums in Tuesday’s T20I defeat to the Netherlands.

 

Fantasy Analysis

On debut for a T20I (though capped seven times in ODIs), Singh nearly singlehandedly won the match for Ireland. He was the joint-highest wicket-taker with three including a pair of wickets in the death over and was the second-most economical bowler, conceding at just six an over. With the bat, the 31-year-old had scores of 30 or fewer in all but one of his innings (a 53-ball 109 last year); however, he found another gear on Tuesday and nearly brought Ireland to victory thanks to his big hitting, finding the rope nearly every four balls before being held to a single on the final ball when a six would’ve won it.

Nottinghamshire vs Derbyshire: Players to watch out for

When two of the best teams in the tournament collide, entertainment is guaranteed. Here are the players to watch out for in today’s contest.

B Godleman: In the seven matches he played, Godleman has added two tons and three fifties. He surpassed 500 runs in the tournament as well.

Steven Mullaney: The captain of Nottinghamshire is one of the top-scorers in this tournament with a total score of 316 runs and has a hundred and two fifties in seven matches.

Jake Ball: In his goal of making it to the England team again, Jake Ball has been outstanding this season.

D Olivier: Olivier has picked 12 wickets so far and is the top wicket-taker for Derbyshire in this season.

Wagg: Wagg is the leading wicket-taker for the side, with 9 wickets to his name
