Fantasy Angles and Notes

  1. What to expect: This will be the first international match played at Tarouba’s Brian Lara Stadium. The average first-innings score at this CPL venue is 141, indicating that the pitch will be difficult to bat on. The large boundaries also bring the bowlers into play more.
  2. Suryakumar Yadav was the player of the series in the previous T20I series between these two sides earlier this year in India, while Nicholas Pooran scored three half centuries in three T20Is.
  3. KL Rahul has been ruled out of the series due to covid, and Sanju Samson has been added to the squad.
  4. Ravichandran Ashwin could lead India’s spin attack in Yuzvendra Chahal’s absence. There are three left-handers among the top four batters in the West Indies and he has only been chosen by 19 percent of fantasy managers, making the 35-year-old an appealing option.
  5. Can Hardik Pandya be dropped in GL? Hardik Pandya has been fantastic with the bat and the ball in 2022 and is the default captaincy pick for this match. However, if India fields first, we may take a risk in GL by dropping Hardik because the majority of the runs in the chase will be scored by India’s top four batters.
  6. Arshdeep Singh bowled 135 deliveries in the final four overs in T20 matches in 2022, conceding only 164 runs at an economy rate of 7.28 and picking up 8 wickets at an average of 20.50. Only once in those 135 deliveries has he been hit for six, which is an outstanding achievement for a death bowler. Arshdeep, like Ashwin, presents a potential differential opportunity, as he is selected by only 4% of fantasy managers, making him an excellent pick for the match, especially if India bat first.
  7. Shimron Hetmyer is making a long-awaited return to the West Indies and was in good form during the IPL 2022. However, Hetmyer has not played any high-level cricket in the last three months, making it difficult for him to replicate his form against India’s quality bowling lineup.
