Fantasy Angles and Notes

  • The West Indies coach emphasised the importance of having a batter who can act as an anchor and help the team bat out their entire 50-over quota. Shai Hope has mastered this anchor role for the West Indies, typically batting around power hitters. Interestingly, the team has lost 10 of the 16 ODIs in 2022, which coincides with a slump in Hope’s form.
  • Since 2021, the West Indies have had the lowest average and run rate against spin, providing ample opportunities for Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, and Deepak Hooda to take wickets.
  • Prasidh Krishna is picked by only 13% of fantasy managers, owing to his poor performance in the last four ODIs, but keep in mind that he is the same bowler who picked up 9 wickets in three games against the West Indies earlier this year.
  • Sanju Samson has been selected by more than half of the managers and is available in the wicket keeper section. However, he bats lower down the order, and if India chases, there is value in leaving him out because the top four are likely to do the majority of the scoring.
  • Given his good ODI form this year and risk-free playing style, Shamarh Brooks is an attractive option to consider for our fantasy teams.
  • Fantasy leagues are typically much more competitive in matches involving the Indian team, so we must put aside our player biases when selecting our teams. To be successful, we recommend that you choose a different player or two from the standard template of picks.
