Fantasy Angles and Notes

  • With an average score of 158 in the first innings, this pitch generally provides an opportunity for both batters and bowlers to find success. This match will be played during the day, which typically favours spinners and pace bowlers with good variation. Bangladesh have a bowling attack that can thrive on a pitch like this.
  • The players we would like to build our fantasy teams around for the first match are Litton Das, Sikandar Raza, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam and Luke Jongwe
  • Shoriful Islam and Mustafizur Rahman have enjoyed bowling against Zimbabwe. Mustafizur has 18 wickets in 9 games, while Shoriful has 6 wickets in 3 games. They are important in both innings of the match, but if they bowl first, they can be considered as captaincy options.
  • Sikandar Raza does not have the best record against Bangladesh, but he comes into this game after scoring 228 runs and taking five wickets in five matches to help his team secure a World Cup spot in Australia this year. In the previous game, he took four wickets. He has a strong track record at home and has emerged as a must-have due to his all-around ability.
  • Wessly Madhevere as a key player and a captain in Grand Leagues: Madhevere had a great series against Bangladesh last time out, scoring 23, 73, and 54 when he opened the innings for the team. He will bat at No. 4 this time. He is chosen by only 6% of managers, possibly due to the abundance of options in the all-rounder section for this match. We will try to capitalise on this opportunity because we believe he is a player worth betting on.
  • Litton Das is expected to lead Bangladesh’s batting in this series. His T20I form has been mixed, but he has a strong record against Zimbabwe.
  • Luke Jongwe has the most wickets in T20Is at this venue since 2015. Sean Williams and Wellington Masakadza will also look to make an impact with their left-arm orthodox spin in this match. In Shakib Al Hasan’s absence, Nasum Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan will spearhead Bangladesh’s spin attack. Nasum becomes an important pick, especially if he bowls in the second innings.
  • Anamul Haque will most likely bat at No. 3 in this series, which is his best position. He is chosen by only 17% of teams, and we should consider including him in our lineups as a good differential. Similarly, Milton Shumba is only picked by 12% of the managers; he bats in the lower middle order and bowls left arm spin.
