CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on June 17, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs Bangladesh on June 17 Windies and Bangladesh will lock horns on Monday for the fourth time in a month or so. The Tigers defeated them three times including the final in the tri-series in Ireland but the World Cup pressure would be completely different. Moreover, the Caribbean side playing the tournament is different as well and won’t carry any baggage of the recent losses. Also, both the teams are desperate for victory having lost their way after starting the World Cup on a high. There will be a few changes in the Bangladesh team it seems after the way they were pummelled by England in the previous encounter. Shakib Al Hasan’s fitness is also a concern but the all-rounder must have got enough time to recover. Sabbir Rahman and Rubel Hossain are likely to be included to bolster respective departments. Windies, on the other hand, might play an all-pace attack to rattle the opposition. Best economical pick – Shai Hope averages a staggering 94.57 against Bangladesh, almost twice his overall career average of 49.72. West Indies, who lost to Australia and England due to lack of partnerships with the bat, need someone to play a long innings - who better than Shai Hope to do that? Top captains & vice captains – A key middle-order batsman, Mushfiqur Rahim, along with Shakib, laid the foundation for Bangladesh's win over South Africa with a steady innings of 78. Mushfiqur, who has scored five half-centuries in his last ten outings against West Indies, averaging 63.71 in that time, will aim for a big innings on Monday. Shakib Al Hasan might not have the kind of start he’d have expected with the ball. But, with the willow in hand, he’s just been unstoppable. After registering two half-centuries in the first two games, the southpaw made it big and got to a wonderful hundred against England. He will continue to be the key in the Bangladesh middle-order. Smart pick – Andre Russell has looked to swing at everything thus far in the tournament. He still seems to be in a T20 mode and hasn’t really adapted to the situation of the game. Thus, he should look to do a better job and play according to the situation of the game. With the ball, the all-rounder has been doing a fair job and will have a critical role to play. Cautions Pick – Tamim Iqbal is one of the senior-most batsmen in the Bangladesh line-up and was expected to play a big role in the tournament. However, he failed to live up to the expectations thus far. The left-hander has often got out near scores of 20 and has to perform better and provide his team with a good start. My XI – Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Shakib al Hasan (Vice-Captain), Shai Hope, Andre Russell, Soumya Sarkar, Chris Gayle, Mosaddek Hossain, Sheldon Cottrell, Mustafizur Rahman, Oshane Thomas, Shimron Hetmyer

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on June 9, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on June 9 Australia won both their warm-up matches of this World Cup versus England and Sri Lanka. The Aaron Finch-captained team has now won the first two games of the main round against Afghanistan and the Windies. Even as their first match was one-sided, the Aussies had a tough time in their last contest. The Men in Yellow are next scheduled to lock horns with India on June 9 at the Kennington Oval in London. India, on the other hand, started their World Cup campaign with a thunderous six-wicket victory against South Africa at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Their bowlers made the full utilization of the overcast conditions and helped India clinch the ascendancy from the outset. The batters had their difficulties but weathered the storm. The Men in Blue’s task is expected to be a little tougher against the Aussies. Best economical pick – Yuzvendra Chahal had a brilliant World Cup debut as he spun out South Africa in India's first match of the tournament. He ended the match with figures of 4-51. He is likely to be India's trump card while bowling to Australia with 13 wickets from 6 matches while bowling against the defending champions of the World Cup. Top captains & vice captains – Steve Smith is kind of player, who thrives under pressure and he has shown character in this World Cup as well. Versus the Windies, the Aussies found themselves in dire straits after losing a few early wickets. Nevertheless, Smith came in and notched 73 and took his team to a respectable score. Virat Kohli is yet to stage the stage on fire with the bat in this World Cup. He scored 18 in the previous game and got out to Andile Phehlukwayo. The experienced campaigner had a couple of tentative outings in the warm-ups as well. With a truckload of runs under his belt, he is speculated to be a gun player. Smart pick – Pat Cummins has been one of Australia’s most consistent batsmen over the past few months. Even in this World Cup, he has picked up five wickets and has looked in fine form. He doesn’t drop his intensity at any stage of the games and hence has tasted a significant amount of success. Cummins was the leading wicket-taker in the ODI series in India and he will want to give his teams some breakthrough. Cautions Pick – Shikhar Dhawan has had a torrid time in the 2019 World Cup. He got out for 2 and 1 in the warm-ups against New Zealand and Bangladesh. The 33-year-old couldn’t cross the single-digit score in the first game as well. A vicious delivery from Kagiso Rabada led to his dismissal. My XI – Steve Smith (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Pat Cummins, Y Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Alex Carey, Lokesh Rahul, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Coulter-Nile
