Editor's Pick: NZ Vs BAN


Tomorrow, New Zealand take on Bangladesh. We have seen in this tournament that both NZ and BAN have benefitted from the rain. Both teams have played two games each, lost one and received one point due to NO RESULT. Tomorrow’s match will mean something to them both. They’d want to earn their points.

Let’s start with New Zealand. A fairly decent team is the first impression. They have their batting issues though. So far, Kane Williamson, who has a 93% selection on our Fantasy App, is a must on your line-up. And here’s why. He has been consistent since the IPL. His contribution is all the more valuable considering that the other batsmen are yet to show their full potential. 

James Neesham, the KIWI Allrounder is a fine batsman. With a salary of 8, he could be the dark horse you might like to have on your team. Another batsman with an admiring technique is Ross Taylor. His fans have given him a 67% chance of selection. With a salary of 9, you can tell he is worth it because of his performance. His attacking methods might be exactly what the team needs to make it to the semis. Martin Guptill is also a good pick.

Amongst the bowlers, we have Adam Milne, the team’s opening fast bowler.  Luke is your Wicket Keeper.

Bangladesh is always capable of surprising you. They have a decent set of players to catch you off guard. For them, Kane is someone to watch out for. Bangladesh’s secret weapon to tackle Kane Williamson is Mustafizur Rehman. We have given him a salary of 11 for this very reason. He is a valuable player to have on your team. He’s a consistent seamer. Rubel Hossain, with a 49% selection, can also be a good bet against the Kiwis.

In the batting line-up, Tamim Iqbal is your man. With 162 points and 88 % selection score; you cannot have a team without him. Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes are good picks as well. We also rate Mushfiqur Rahim very high. Don’t leave him out.

It is a must-win game for both. They are the bottom two of Group A. it is a game changer indeed. If NZ win against BAN and Australia lose to England, That is a BIG IF, then NZ are through. The same applies to Bangladesh too. All this subject to rain, of course.

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
