Australia v England, 3rd ODI: Fantasy tips

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

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.

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.

IPL 2018 final, CSK v SRH: Players to watch out for

Gone are the 59 matches, and here we are at the end of this year’s IPL. With final just a few hours away, let’s have look at top picks from both the teams today.

Considering the pitch, Ravi Jadeja will hold the key for CSK. The Rajpoot boy did wonders with the ball the last time he met Hyderabad. Expect the same from him today as well.

Rashid Khan:

No matter what and where he plays, he is the match winner. He is just three wickets away from the purple cap as well. Chennai will look to play him out rather than trying to do anything worse.

Kane Williamson:

Williamson must play the anchor role today, and others must play around him. If he doesn’t score for the team, it is easy to bundle out Hyderabad cheaply. In a final like this, he must lead his team from the front.

Ambati Rayudu:

Nobody in the CSK line-up knows Wankhede better than Rayudu. He was one of the stars for Mumbai Indians all these years. Rayudu’s form in the recent games wasn’t good as well. Today might be his day.

Suresh Raina:

Raina is the major contributor for CSK all these years, and he does have a good record in the final. Raina will be looking to stay there and finish the game for CSK as well.
