CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on September 22, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on September 22 India made a thunderous start to the T20I series after the washed off match in Dharamshala. The Men in Blue brushed aside the Proteas by seven wickets at the PCA Stadium in Mohali to take a 1-0 lead in the series. Yet another time, Virat Kohli, the hosts’ skipper, stood up and churned out an unbeaten 72 in a run-chase. The home team will now be eyeing a win in the third T20I in Bangalore. Their bowlers also looked in great shape as well. For the visitors, a lot of work needs to be done, especially in the bowling area, which failed to make early inroads, allowing the batsmen to settle. Their striking ability at the death also needs to be worked upon. This will also be South Africa’s maiden T20I in Bangalore and they’ll be desperate to evade their first T20I series loss in India. Best economical pick– Temba Bavuma, the debutant, showed a lot of character in the first match and was cruising ahead for his maiden half-century but was denied a 50 when he was caught at 49 by Jadeja near then fence. Top captains & vice captains –Well! In case you have been under a rock, Virat Kohli strolled past another run-chase at Mohali. The Indian captain continued his love affair with the venue, churning out another chapter in the tutorial: How to go about a run-chase? Ask Rabada. Ask Nortje. Ask anyone for that matter. Kohli’s 52-ball-72* meant he is now the leading run-scorer in T20I cricket, and with the next game at his IPL home ground, one can expect him to add the umpteenth chapter to that tutorial. The Proteas had a few positives to take from the first game. Quinton de Kock, the new designated captain, led his team from the front and made a comprehensive 52 from 37 deliveries only to leave his team in the middle looking for a direction. Smart pick –Shikhar Dhawan too looked his free-flowing self in Mohali and his innings was only halted courtesy of a brilliant one-handed catch from David Miller. But Dhawan knows he needs a big score under his belt. With KL Rahul breathing down his neck, the southpaw will hope he converts the 40-odd he got in the last game, to a substantial score. Cautions Pick –Who will bat after Kohli for India? Will India still persist with the misfiring Rishabh Pant at No.4 or will Shreyas Iyer finally get the promotion, he deserves? The move to swap Pant with Iyer could be mutually beneficial. While it would give Iyer an opportunity to bat higher and showcase the talent that he has shown in ODI cricket and the IPL, the demotion of Pant at No.5 will give necessary ammunition to go all-out at the backend of the innings with the quartet of Pandya brothers. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Rohit Sharma, Bjorn Fortuin, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Andile Phehlukwyo, Hardik Pandya
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League TipsIndia vs South Africa on September 18, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on September 18 Both India and South Africa were filled with disappointment in the first game of the three-match T20I series at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala. It rained throughout the day and didn’t stop fully even during match time. In the end, the contest at the picturesque venue had to be abandoned without the toss. The groundsmen tried their hearts out, but the downpour kept undoing their work. It’s time for the second T20I, which is scheduled to take place on September 18 at Mohali’s IS Bindra Stadium. For the time being, there is no forecast of rain and that should come as a sigh of relief for the players. Both teams will want to win the contest as a victory will help them take an unassailable lead. The Proteas didn’t have a great World Cup campaign, having bowed out before the semi-final. However, the visitors can take heart from the fact that they are yet to lose a T20I versus the Men in Blue in the latter’s backyard. But it’s also a fact that India have won both their games in the shortest format in Mohali in 2009 and 2016 respectively. Earlier, India whitewashed the West Indies in the Caribbean. The hosts have put forth more or less the same squad for the upcoming matches as well. Best economical pick– Navdeep Saini’s performance on the Caribbean tour was very promising. The 26-year-old picked up 5 wickets in 3 T20I matches, and got the Player of the Match award for taking a hat-trick in the first T20I.Investing in Saini seems sensible ahead of the T20I World Cup, as he can bowl consistently in the 140 kph region. Top captains & vice captains –With a new stand named after him in Delhi, Virat Kohli became the youngest ever player to have this recognition. Rightfully so, the Indian captain has been one of the most prolific run-getters for India in the last decade and is a player who is in terrific form coming into this series. It’s not even a year when Rassie van der Dussen made his international debut. In the short time, he has already become a crucial member of the Proteas. In seven T20Is, he has gotten 253 runs at an average of 36.14 and a strike-rate of 133.15. Time and again, he has shown that he isn’t someone to crumble under pressure. Smart pick –David Miller comes into his own in Mohali which is home ground in the IPL while playing for the Kings XI Punjab. He has scored 628 runs in 25 innings at an average of 41.87 and the strike-rate of 150.96 at the venue. Cautions Pick –The world seemed perfect for Shikhar Dhawan, when he got the World Cup century against Australia back in June. Ever since, he has strained to find his feet, especially after his injury. The southpaw could muster only 27 runs in three T20Is in the West Indies. He is approaching 34 and a few more poor knocks could well see him out of the setup with many youngsters waiting in the wings. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Rassie van der Dussen (Vice-Captain), David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Navdeep Saini, Junior Dala, Krunal Pandya, , Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Rohit Sharma, George Linde
