Poland vs Senegal : Fantasy tips

When: 19TH June, 20:30 IST
Where: Spartak Stadium, Moscow
Form
Poland: L L W D W (good form)
Senegal: D D D L W (decent form)

Poland will be the slight favourites going into this one, but really it will be anyone’s game with both sides capable of causing the other serious problems. The deciding factor in this game may well be the performances of each respective team’s star players – Sadio Mane and Robert Lewandowski.

Poland will be missing the services of Kamil Glik, who is facing a race against time to be fit for the group stage.

Predicted Starting 11:
Poland: Wojciech Szczęsny, Maciej Rybus, Michał Pazdan, Jan Bednarek, Łukasz Piszczek, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Piotr Zieliński, Karol Linetty, Jakub Błaszczykowski, Kamil Grosicki, Robert Lewandowski

Senegal: Khadim N’Diaye, Lamine Gassama, Kalidou Koulibaly, Salif Sané, Youssouf Sabaly, Idrissa Gueye, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Alfred N’Diaye, Sadio Mané, Ismaïla Sarr, Diafra Sakho

Players to Watch out for
Robert Lewandowski: Lewandowski scored 16 of Poland’s 28 goals in the qualifying campaign. If he gets going, Poland will have a great chance to win.

Idrissa Gueye: The Everton star is one of the main players for Senegal. Gueye’s weakness is that he tends to make more fouls than anyone in the team. The 28 years old has improved a lot in the recent times though.

Jakub Blaszczykowski: From a personal tragedy to a national hero, Blaszczykowski’s journey is an inspiration. The Wolfsburg’s midfielder has had a great season for the team and will be hoping to continue his great form here at Russia.

Saliou Ciss: The Valenciennes defender was ruled out of the game due to an ankle injury and will be missing the entirety of the World Cup.

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.
