CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips  India vs Bangladesh on November 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Bangladesh on November 10 After having suffered a rare seven-wicket defeat in the opening fixture in Delhi, normal services once again resumed as Rohit Sharma’s masterclass at Rajkot, helped the Men in Blue to seek parity and set-up a decider at the Vidarbha Cricket Association in Nagpur. India may have won the second T20I but it did nothing to resolve their long-standing issues in the shortest format of the game. That they decided to chase in the second game paved way for their perennial weakness to be subsided. It has become apparently clear that the Men in Blue love chasing. And, there is a reason for it. India’s template at the top of the innings in the recent past has been to reserve wickets before going all-out for the target. While that might work during the run-chase, it has seldom worked when they are setting-up a total. Rohit Sharma knows it. He knows his numbers, his sides’ record while batting first. And it will be interesting to see whether he opts to bat first if they win the toss or India will go for a safer option, considering the series is on the line, as they did in Rajkot. As for the Asian Tigers, they would feel that they missed out on a golden opportunity in the last game after their openers had provided them with a blistering start. The visitors’ woes against quality wrist-spin were exposed to the hilt once again while their bowling- especially fast bowling- was atrocious, to say the least. Best economical pick– Bangladesh has struggled against the leg-spin of Yuzvendra Chahal in both games. He is a must-have in the side. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma smashed the ball to all the corners, displaying his elegant batting and making up for his failure in the previous T20I. The highlight of his innings was the 10th over of India's innings when he smashed Hossain with three consecutive sixes, scoring 21 runs off that over. It took only 23 balls for Rohit Sharma to register his 18th T20I fifty and he looked to be comfortably cruising towards his fifth T20I hundred. Mushfiqur Rahim is ideal choice for vice captain. Rahim is in decent form in the middle order with 64 runs in two games. Smart pick –Shikhar Dhawan has gotten off to starts this series without being able to convert them into fifties. He should be backed to get some runs on Sunday. Cautions Pick –Whether it is his stroke selection or his untidy wicket-keeping skills, Rishabh Pant is under considerable pressure and with Samson in the squad, this could be a crucial game for the southpaw. He made a grave mistake in the Rajkot T20I which could’ve cost India the game and the series. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Mushfiqur Rahim (Vice-Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Mahmudullah, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Liton Das, Washington Sundar, Soumya Sarkar, Krunal Pandya

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 10 An epic encounter beckons as the Kiwis take on England at the Eden Park in Auckland for the 5th and final T20I, in what promises to be a game for the ages, a finale to the five part reenactment of the spectacle which was the ICC World Cup Final 2019. With the series level at 2-2 after four hard fought bouts, both teams will know full well that they are very evenly matched and cannot afford to spare any quarter. Just like at Lord’s earlier this year. Best economical pick–Mitchell Santner has been a bag of tricks throughout the tournament, bamboozling the English batsmen with his subtle variations to lead the wicket-taking charts courtesy an impressive haul of nine scalps from his four outings. While the rest of the New Zealand bowling attack was descending into chaos thanks to the exploits of Messrs Morgan and Malan, Santner once more went about his job with nonchalant ease, dismissing both English openers for the second time in four games, and coming out with very respectable figures of 2 for 32 from his four overs. Currently ranked the 5th best T20 bowler in the world, Santner is a bonafide tormentor of batsmen. Top captains & vice captains –Eoin Morgan played an able supporting hand, scoring a brisk 91 off just 41 deliveries, his best numbers in this high octane format of the game. The flamboyant Irishman did ride his luck at times, getting dropped thrice, including twice off two full-tosses later adjudged to have been over waist high, before finally perishing in the deep during the last over, having set the tide firmly in his team’s favor. Having already struck five half-centuries in his first eight T20I outings, the splendid Dawid Malan bludgeoned his way to an unbeaten knock of a 103 runs off just 51 deliveries in the last match, thus becoming only the second Englishman after Alex Hales to have scored a ton in Twenty20 cricket. It was also the fastest, beating the previous record by 2 full overs. Malan’s boisterous batting coincided with a staggering record third-wicket stand of a 182 runs with his captain which saw the World champions reach a gargantuan total of 241 for a loss of three wickets, their highest total in this version of the game. Smart pick –One of the finest bowlers of his generation, Trent Boult played his first T20I in over a year and a half on Friday, with the selectors looking to give the fiery Lockie Ferguson some much needed rest ahead of a seemingly likely maiden test cap in the upcoming test series. A usual picture of consistency, Boult will be expected to brush off the rustiness and spearhead the Kiwi offense in yet another must-win situation against an in-form batting lineup studded with big names and colossal hitters. Cautions Pick –Colin Munro can take bowling attacks to the cleaners, but he has blown hot and cold in the series. Munro has been fighting with poor form for quite some time now. My XI – Eoin Morgan (Captain), Dawid Malan(Vice-Captain), Trent Boult, James Vince, Mitchell Santner, Chris Jordan, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Jonny Bairstow, Matthew Parkinson, Martin Guptill

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Bangladesh on November 7,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Bangladesh on November 7 Bangladesh sort of stunned India in Delhi where they registered their maiden T20I win over the Indian team in their 9th attempt. This helped the Bangla team to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. This will now put extra pressure on India who hasn’t got favorable results in the T20I format recently. Their home record in this format this year has been disastrous as they won only one of the five matches. India is already suffering big in T20Is due to its outdated batting approach. The aggressive batters KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant left their natural game due to pressure from management. On the other hand, Bangladesh will look to win at least one of the next two matches. This will help Bangladesh in gaining a lot of confidence as a series win without both Tamim and Shakib was never imagined. Best economical pick – Shreyas Iyer is the incumbent no.4 for Team India and should be given a long rope for him to settle and instill confidence in him. He has the confidence of the captain, coach and selectors, and would be looking forward to making the most of the opportunities presented to him. Top captains & vice captains – Bangladesh needed 22 runs off the last two overs to win the match. An economical penultimate over by Khaleel Ahmed could have tipped the scales in India's favor. However, things went downhill for Rohit Sharma's side as Mushfiqur Rahim launched an all-out attack on Khaleel, hitting hit him for four consecutive boundaries and scoring 18 runs from the over. The captain of the side, one of the best batsman in the world Rohit Sharma will once again be expected to score some centuries in the series. And with many other good batsmen in the team already, Rohit can score big without pressure. Smart pick – Yuzvendra Chahal returned with match figures of 4-0-24-1 in Delhi. He would have conceded fewer runs and bagged more wickets had the two reviews and a dropped chance gone in his favour. The RCB leg-spinner troubled all the Bangladeshi batsmen and would be itching to have a bowl at them again. His variations make the 29-year-old effective even on the flattest of surfaces. Cautious Pick – Khaleel Ahmed, the left-arm quick was preferred ahead of Shardul Thakur in the opening T20I of the series. Khaleel's match figures read 4-0-37-1. He was flogged by Mushfiqur Rahim for 4 fours off consecutive deliveries. He erred in his lines and lengths, and this cost the team. Shardul Thakur should ideally replace him as he has better control in his lines and lengths. My XI – Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Rohit Sharma (Vice-Captain), Y Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Soumya Sarkar, Mustafizur Rahman, Deepak Chahar, Mahmudullah, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Lokesh Rahul

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 5,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 5 New Zealand will lock horns with England in the 3rd T20I of five matches series on Nov 5, 2019. The series is evenly balanced with 1-1, as the home team won the last game by 21 runs, while England won the 1st T20I by 7 wickets. New Zealand posted a total of 176/8 in 20 overs where Martin Guptill and James Neesham played a fine knock of 41(28) and 42(22) respectively. There was also a good cameo by Colin de Grandhomme where he made 28 runs from 12 balls. In reply, England managed to make only 155 runs in 19.5 overs where Mitchell Santner took three wickets by giving away 25 runs for which he was awarded Man of the Match. England side is led by Eoin Morgan while New Zealand is playing under the captaincy of Tim Southee. Both teams will look forward to winning the upcoming game and take a lead in the five matches T20I series. After a dominant win in the previous game, New Zealand shouldn't be making any changes. Although they haven't fired yet, Colin Munro and Martin Guptill remain crucial at the top of the order. A couple of changes are expected from England with Tom Banton expected to make his T20I debut at the expense of Dawid Malan. Youngster, Matthew Parkinson could also feature for Pat Brown, who wasn't able to get a wicket in the previous game. Best economical pick– The bowling all-rounder has time and again proved that he is a valuable asset for the Black Caps and Mitchell Santner continued that trend in the 2ndT20I as well. The spinner picked up three wickets to bring the hosts back into the series but and won the man of the match award. He is in good form and could be a great option for your ENG vs NZ Cricbattle Fantasy team. Top captains & vice captains –Jonny Bairstow and Colin Munro are the must have players in the side with the nature of the pitch favoring their style of play. They should be able to play their strokes freely and give their side a fast start. These two can be banked upon to earn fantasy points. Jonny Bairstow is due for a big knock at the top of the order for the English side. He is the obvious choice for captaincy. Smart pick –Talk about making an impression, James Vince who still hasn’t cemented his spot in the side will definitely be confident of his chances with a composed half-century to take England across the finish line in the first T20I. With a few quick wickets, New Zealand sniffed on a comeback but Vince was quick enough to thwart any sign of a comeback. Cautions Pick –Martin Guptill didn’t look much comfortable in the first game. He couldn’t get his flow going and tried to get too defensive early on. In the end, the pressure of the dot balls got the better of him as he ended up scoring another low score. My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Colin Munro(Vice-Captain), James Vince, Tim Seifert, Mitchell Santner, Eoin Morgan, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Ish Sodhi

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips  India vs Bangladesh on November 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Bangladesh on November 3 After weeks of standoffs, strikes, controversies, suspensions and of-course debates around Delhi’s polluted environment, cricket will finally take centre stage as Team India host Bangladesh for a three-match T20I series. This is Bangladesh’s first-ever full-tour of India. In the past twelve years or so, India-Bangladesh have provided a better theatre of cricket than the traditional and much-hyped Indo-Pak battles. For the Indians and their fans, every time they see a Bangladesh-unit, images of Mushfiqur Rahim and co celebrating against the backdrop of a dejected Munaf Patel come to mind. And, for every Bangladeshi fan, it is the unrelenting desire to do an encore of what they did in 2007 or in 2015 and the will to shrug off the pain of every close defeat they’ve suffered, every time they face their Asian big brothers.It has been so close yet too far for Bangladesh in the shortest format of the game- be it the 2016 T20 World Cup encounter in Bengaluru or the Nidahas Trophy final. With India missing Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar from the set-up, can the Tigers finally pull off a win against the Men in Blue? Best economical pick– Although an opening batsman, KL Rahul has been tried out even in India’s troubling middle-order. However, of late, he has tended to strain of late at the highest level. With a career strike rate of nearly 150, the 27-year old can counterattack at number three as well as can keep the scoreboard ticking through good running. Top captains & vice captains –In Virat Kohli’s absence, the onus to shepherd the Indian batting will be on Captain Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. The former is coming off a great Test series against South Africa and the right-hander would be hoping to shrug off what was a rare blip in the T20I series against the Proteas last month. His partner, Shikhar Dhawan, has also been in indifferent form in both 50-over and especially T20 format in 2019. Rohit Sharma has been in the form of his life. After earning the man of the series award in the Test series against South Africa, he will be back to the format of his forte. Smart pick –With Shakib Al Hasan no longer available, the onus will be on Mahmudullah to not only lead his side with the bat but also with his tactical nous. The right-hander has led Bangladesh in 11 T20Is usually when Shakib isn’t around and it will be interesting to see how he marshalls his troops in such adverse times. Cautions Pick –When Rishabh Pant gets runs, there is more talk about him than anyone else; when he doesn’t, still there is more talk about him than anyone else. He is that sort of character. With Sanju Samson breathing down his neck and pressure mounting with every underwhelming inning that he plays, can the southpaw turn his fortunes around when he takes center stage on his home turf? My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan (Vice-Captain), KL Rahul, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mustafizur Rahman, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Krunal Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Liton Das

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Pakistan on November 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Pakistan on November 3 Not so long ago, the Number 1 T20I team – Pakistan, was beaten in its own backyard by Sri Lanka. A whitewash at home isn’t something that is really pleasing. Since then, some restructuring has been done with the side. There is a new captain. Some of the senior players have been left aside. And now, with a slightly different looking side, Pakistan will start their new tour down under as they look not only to prepare for the T20 World Cup next year but also to keep the grip firm on the top rank. Led by Babar Azam, Pakistan will be eyeing to dominate this format as they did a few months ago. However, Australia will undoubtedly come hard at them. It is the same team that took Sri Lanka down just a couple of days ago which will play Pakistan. The bowlers have done a fabulous job in the recently-concluded series. But, the only concern for them at this point is that the inexperienced middle-order hasn’t been tested with the top three batsmen playing so far. A couple of important players are away for this series but that shouldn’t bother Aaron Finch. They will want another series win under their belt. Best economical pick– Adam Zampa was the highest wicket taker for Australia in the last series against Sri Lanka. The spinner is a natural wicket taker and will definitely be one of the players to watch out for in the first T20I against Pakistan. Top captains & vice captains –David Warner was struggling to put bat to ball in Ashes 2019, managing just 95 runs in 10 innings at a horror average of 9.5. It seemed as if nothing went right for Warner who was made Stuart Broad's bunny in England. A month later, the struggles in Old Blight seem a distant past for David Warner who has single-handedly demolished Sri Lanka in the recently-concluded 3-match T20I series. David Warner starred in Australia's 3-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka, hitting 217 runs without even getting out once over 3 match. The ace Pakistan batsman Babar Azam is currently the top-ranked T20I batsman of the world. The 25-year-old has consistently performed for the team in the shortest format of the game. Azam has been consistently averaging around 50 in the format. As a result, he has also been named the T20I skipper of the side. Smart pick –One of the most prolific all-rounders for Pakistan, Imad Wasim is a threat for the Aussies with bat and ball. The all-rounder who is Ranked No.2 in the ICC T20I bowling rankings can hit big blows down the order also. Imad Wasim is just the right kind of player you need in your fantasy team who will get you points in both the innings. Cautions Pick –Kane Richardson played all the games of the Sri Lankan series so. Unfortunately, he has been the least impressive of the seamers. While he has been economical when it comes to conceding the runs, the wickets column has been empty. With Australia looking for a settled bowling unit for the next year’s World Cup, Richardson has to be amongst the wickets soon. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Babar Azam (Vice-Captain), Imad Wasim, Aaron Finch, Adam Zampa, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mohammad Irfan, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 3 England played three debutants- Sam Curran, Pat Brown and Lewis Gregory- in the opening T20I versus New Zealand at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. On the other hand, New Zealand had most of their key players, albeit their regular skipper Kane Williamson wasn’t there. Despite facing a relatively inexperienced team, the Kiwis lost by seven wickets to concede a 1-0 lead in the series. The second of the five T20Is is scheduled to be played on Sunday, November 3 at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. Another loss will make it a must-win scenario for the hosts in the last three matches. Tim Southee and Co has a decent record at the ground, having won seven out of 10 matches. They have won their last five T20Is in Wellington with their last defeat coming in 2013. The Black Caps may not wish to make a change after a solitary defeat. Colin Munro after his century in the practice match, threatened last time, but got out on 21. Martin Guptill’s poor run of form continued after scoring only a couple. Tim Seifert and Colin de Grandhomme also failed to convert after getting a few to the boundary. Ross Taylor looked in decent touch, having scored 44 off 35. The Brits won’t wish to tinker with their winning combination. Dawid Malan got a couple away to the boundary, but fell prey to Santner. The southpaw will be looking for a substantial score under his belt. Barring him, the rest of the batting stepped up big time and not allowing the pressure to mount. Jonny Bairstow started off in a positive note with a 28-ball 35 that set the tone for the chase. Best economical pick– Kiwi wicketkeeper Tim Seifert is the only one to be picked in this department considering his good form at the venue. He scored his career-best T20I score against India earlier in the year and would love to continue in the same manner on Sunday as well. Top captains & vice captains –England produced an outstanding display in the opening T20 to win by seven wickets and they had some of their more experienced members of the squad to thank, James Vince was the standout performer with his half century in a man of the match display. Jonny Bairstow innings was cut short in the first T20 by a stunning Martin Guptill catch. Nevertheless, he looks to be in supreme touch and should score some runs at the top of the order. Smart pick –Mitchell Satner was the only bowler who looked a bit threatening for New Zealand and picked up 3 wickets while conceding runs at less than 6 rpo. Cautions Pick –Joe Denly has been ruled out of the series after he damaged a ligament in his ankle. His replacement won't be announced. My XI – James Vince (Captain), Jonny Bairstow (Vice-Captain), Tim Seifert, Mitchell Santner, Eoin Morgan, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Tom Curran, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Sri Lanka on November 1,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Sri Lanka on November 1 Australia's dominance over Sri Lanka continued on Wednesday as they bowled the tourists out for just 117 in 19 overs, before David Warner and Steve Smith hit unbeaten fifties to lead them to an emphatic victory with seven overs to spare. After sealing the series, the hosts will be keen to whitewash Sri Lanka with a win in Melbourne here, though they may consider one or two changes with Mitchell Starc back after missing the second match due to this brother’s wedding but they may decide to give Sean Abbott an opportunity here also. The form of David Warner has been the major positive of this series so far with an unbeaten century and fifty in the opening two matches. After their series win over Pakistan earlier this month, Sri Lanka have come crashing back down to earth in this series having been completely dominated in the opening two T20 matches and the mission in Melbourne is to regain some pride and push the hosts harder. The batting has struggled badly in coping with the formidable Australian bowling attack in both matches so far with none of their batsmen managing to go on and make a big score despite several making a start. While the batsmen have struggled, the bowlers have not fared any better having taken just three wickets and conceding 351 runs in just 33 overs in the series so far. Best economical pick– While you cannot take anything away from Adam Zampa’s brilliant display with the ball, the situation may have led the spinner to have such impressive figures at the end. 2/20 in his four overs was just the kind of punishment inflicted on the visitors and Zampa made full use of Sri Lanka’s desperation for runs as the required rate crawled up. Top captains & vice captains –A batting world record is within reach for David Warner who can make T20 history with just one bigger innings against Sri Lanka. After unbeaten scores of 100 and 60, Warner is now just 64 shy of setting the record for the most runs scored in a three-match T20I series. With the possible exception of Glenn Maxwell, Warner is Australia’s most dangerous weapon with the bat in the game’s shorter formats. After a performance like that, it will be difficult not to fill your Cricbattle team with players from the home team. Maxwell was another name that stood out in the first match as he scored a blitzkrieg 28-ball 62 to ensure that Australia converted this start to a big score. Smart pick –Although it looks extremely difficult for Sri Lanka to crawl their way up in the series, if there is anyone who can help the Islanders it the experience of Lasith Malinga. He can turn the game on its head and the young side will look at his experience to get them out of this mess. Malinga is a valuable pick and could get your fantasy team a lot of points. Cautions Pick –Wanidu Hasaranga was the Man of the Series in the T20I series against Pakistan. But in this series, he has been toothless. The leggie will have to find different ways to keep the batsmen quiet and it certainly won’t be easy for him. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Glenn Maxwell (Vice-Captain), Aaron Finch, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Adam Zampa, Lasith Malinga, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Steven Smith, Kusal Perera

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 1,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs England on November 1 England and New Zealand will lock horns in the first of the five-match series on Friday in Christchurch. This is also England’s first limited-overs assignment after winning the World Cup at home earlier in the year. New Zealand, on the other hand, was at the receiving end of that controversial final, the winner of which was decided on the basis of boundary count. Both the teams look on par in terms of hitting at the start of the series but the hosts are without their regular skipper Kane Williamson. England, however, played two practice matches in the lead up to the main contest winning the first and losing the other one. They have rested some of the top players for this series which presents a great opportunity for the fringe players picked on the back of the performances in the T20 Blast. There is uncertainty around England’s playing XI as to who will play. Prefer picking more batsmen in your team as the pitch might be flat and with short boundaries on offer, runs should galore. Best economical pick– The thunderbolt fast bowler Lockie Ferguson who is returning to the international cricket after an injury is also one of the players to watch out for in the series. Although Ferguson has got limited opportunities in the shortest format, he has been mighty impressive. In his short career of just five T20Is, the 28-year-old has scalped ten wickets. Among all the Kiwi bowlers, who have picked up at least ten wickets after WT20 2016, Ferguson has the best average (13.50), the best strike rate (11.4), and the best economy (7.10). The right-arm pacer who will be playing only the first three T20Is in this series snared three wickets in the first practice match against England. Top captains & vice captains –Jonny Bairstow is in exceptional form in white-ball form and he showed it in the first practice match scoring an unbeaten 78 in a steep chase. Eoin Morgan will also be a crucial pick while Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid can make an impact with the ball. Smart pick –Jimmy Neesham who almost won the World Cup for his side, would be hoping to cement his spot in the national T20 team. The southpaw finished the World Cup 2019 as the third-highest run-scorer (232) for New Zealand, although not with imposing figures. However, he delivered the goods with the ball, as he finished the tournament as the third-most successful bowler for the Blackcaps. He scalped fifteen wickets in nine games, with an average of 19.46 and a strike rate of 21.8, both being the best for any Kiwi in the tourney. Cautions Pick –Martin Guptill is one of the most prominent stalwarts for New Zealand is going through a rough patch. The last time he scored a 50 or more against a top-five team in any format, was in February 2018 – in an ODI against England. An out-of-form Guptill did not help New Zealand’s cause in the World Cup, and things do not look good enough in the shortest format too. Since March 2018, the opening batsman has bagged five ducks with only seven 50+ scores, in 33 T20 games. My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Eoin Morgan (Vice-Captain), Lockie Ferguson, Jimmy Neesham, Sam Billings, Ross Taylor, Ish Sodhi, Adil Rashid, Tom Bruce, Colin de Grandhomme, Sam Curran

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Sri Lanka on October 30,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Sri Lanka on October 30 Sri Lanka landed in Australia on the back of a stunning 3-0 win over Pakistan. They were extremely confident coming into the series and almost defended 131 against Prime Ministers XI. But come the series opener, the familiar Sri Lanka of the past two years turned up. After opting to bowl first, they let Australia’s openers David Warner and Aaron Finch off the hook to concede 233 runs in 20 overs. They were never going to chase it down but finishing on 99/9 after 20 overs was bigger embarrassment for them. The second T20I at The Gabba is a must-win encounter for them and no wonder Australia are the favourites. Lasith Malinga has got to motivate his troops somehow and hope that they put up a good show and give the hosts a run for their money. Aaron Finch and David Warner got Australia off to a great start in the previous game. Both of them will earn crucial Fantasy points again and should be picked in your Cricbattle Fantasy team. Glenn Maxwell is also important for the home team’s cause and can add quick runs. For Sri Lanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Oshada Fernando are important. They might play this game as well and must’ve got the idea of Australian conditions now. Lasith Malinga is a brilliant bowler and expects him to come back strong at The Gabba. Best economical pick– After a successful series in Pakistan, Danushka Gunathilaka comes to Australia in good form. The opener was instrumental for the Islanders scoring a half-century in the T20I series and a memorable century in the decisive ODI match earlier. He is an explosive batsman and could revel under pressure. Top captains & vice captains –David Warner returned to form with a bang on Sunday as he smashed his maiden T20 international hundred to celebrate his 33rd birthday in style. Australia rode on Warner's unbeaten 100 off 56 balls to post a mammoth 233 for 2 against Sri Lanka in the first T20I at the Adelaide Oval. His knock was laced with 10 boundaries and four sixes. Warner is the fourth Aussie batsman after Shane Watson, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch to score a century in the shortest format in international cricket. Warner was involved in a 122-run partnership for the first wicket with captain Aaron Finch, who made 64, and then added another 107 for the second wicket Glenn Maxwell, who scored 62 off just 28 balls. Smart pick –Glenn Maxwell was superb against Sri Lanka in his follow-up gut punch to David Warner and Aaron Finch's 122-run opening stand, crushing 62 off 28 balls after being promoted ahead of Steve Smith. It helped Australia to 2-233 at Adelaide Oval. Cautions Pick –Australian pace spearhead Mitchell Starc has decided his brother's wedding is more important than a game of cricket, pulling out of the second Twenty20 against Sri Lanka to witness him tie the knot. Billy Stanlake or Sean Abbott are likely to replace Starc as Australia target an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Aaron Finch (Vice-Captain), Glenn Maxwell, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Adam Zampa, Lasith Malinga, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Dasun Shanaka, Avishka Fernando
