Fantasy: Back Arshdeep Singh to be your fix

Here are a few tips that could help you create your fantasy XI for the 35th match of the ICC T20 World Cup between India and Bangladesh

India are taking on Bangladesh, a side that they know really well, and a side against whom they have enjoyed a great run. On the other hand, Bangladesh would still be ruing the fact that they could have won against India back in 2016. It was that close, which lands us in this rivalry. India are definitely favourites. 

But consider this, they were favourites back in 2016 as well and if not for the missed opportunity, the Tigers could have roared and given India a shock of their lifetime. With the game in Adelaide Oval, the second on the same day, expect some fireworks between the two sides.

Ground detailsIt will be the second game at the venue, with the first one of course being the fixture between Netherlands and Zimbabwe. But if there is ever a pattern, this is what it is. 

In T20Is this year over 65% of the wickets have fallen to pacers. They have struck once every 29.5 runs and 21.2 deliveries apart, conceding 8.2 runs per over. The spinners may have lesser share of the wickets, but they have struck once every 23.1 runs, 18.6 deliveries apart and have conceded just 7.5 runs an over – implying they have been excellent in all three fronts. 

Suggested Team

While you could go for the above team, you can also choose your team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Then, based on your preferences, the platform will guide you through creating the ideal fantasy XI.

Captaincy Suggestions

For Small Leagues: Virat Kohli (Captain), Taskin Ahmed (Vice-Captain)

For Grand Leagues: Arshdeep Singh (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan (Vice-captain)

Stats that matter

-    In T20Is this year over 65% of the wickets have fallen to pacers. They have struck once every 29.5 runs and 21.2 deliveries apart, conceding 8.2 runs per over.

-    Taskin Ahmed has been the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers, with eight wickets at an incredible average of 11.3. For India, it has been Arshdeep Singh, who has picked up seven wickets, at 13.4. 

-    Nazmul Hossain Shanto is Bangladesh’s best batter in this year’s competition, scoring 105 runs, averaging 35, with a high score of 71, with a fifty in the competition. For India, it has been Virat Kohli, with an average of 156, and a strike-rate of 144.4. 

-    India’s numbers in the powerplay against pace has been a concern. Against pace, India average just 15.7 in the Super 12 stage, with a run-rate of 5.5.

Grand League punts

-    Arshdeep Singh’s value in this Indian setup is priceless. Even if there was a price on him, it would be too high. He has been India’s saviour in the powerplay, with four wickets, conceding runs at just 5.8, striking every 7.5 deliveries. He is India’s best bowler thus far in the competition. 

-    Shakib Al Hasan hasn’t quite been a spark in the tournament thus far but has an opportunity against India. He has picked up 125 T20 wickets in this career. But against India, he hasn’t quite yet been at the best of form, with just four wickets. So, it could very well be the game where he turns things around. 

Criclytics Projections

Probable XIs:

Bangladesh XI: Najmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali, Mosaddek Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Taskin Ahmed

India XI: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik (wk)/Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh
