CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs India on December 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs India on December 10 South AfricaandIndiawill play the first T20I of the three-match series on Sunday (December 10) at the Kingsmead in Durban. A three-match ODI series and a two-match Test series will follow the T20I series. Suryakumar Yadav has again been assigned the captaincy duty of the Indian team. Under his leadership, India recently defeated Australia in the five-match T20I series. Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj have been added to the squad. Shivam Dube, Axar Patel, Prasidh Krishna, and Avesh Khan, who were a part of the Indian team against Australia, have been omitted from this tour. Aiden Markram will captain the Proteas in this series, and they have some new faces in the squad. Quinton de Kock has not been picked and is currently busy playing in BBL. Kagiso Rabada has been rested for the white-ball leg of the series and will be back for the Test series. David Bedingham, Nandre Burger, and Mihlali Mpongwana have been picked up on the Proteas side for the first time. Best economical pick–Ravi Bishnoi was in excellent form during the T20I series against Australia. He bagged nine wickets in five games at an average of 18.22 and an economy rate of 8.20 on high-scoring pitches. Bishnoi's bag of tricks would be tough for the South African batters to pick. He also bowls at high speeds and that could make stroke-making difficult for the opposition batters. Top captains & vice captains– Aiden Markram is a fabulous player in the shortest format of the game. He has played 33 innings, in the format, for the Proteas and has scored 1063 runs at an average of 39.37 and a strike rate of 149.51. Markram was in good form during the ODI World Cup 2023 and also smashed a century off just 49 balls in a game against Sri Lanka. Yashasvi Jaiswal finished as the third-highest run-scorer against Australia. He amassed 138 runs in five matches at a strike rate of 168.29. Smart pick –Marco Jansen took 17 wickets in nine matches in the ODI World Cup at an average of 26.47. He will likely play a key role for the team in this series. Cautious Pick – Lungi Ngidi has been ruled out of the series with a left lateral ankle sprain and can be skipped in fantasy teams. My XI – Aiden Markram (Captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal (Vice-Captain), Ravi Bishnoi, Marco Jansen, Heinrich Klassen, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, David Miller

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on December 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips West Indies vs England on December 3 Get set for a thrilling clash as West Indiessquare off against Englandin the 1st ODI of the England tour of West Indies 2023 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. This three-match ODI series is a crucial contest on West Indian soil. England holds a slender lead in recent head-to-head encounters, having won three out of the last five ODIs against West Indies. In their last clash, England secured a convincing eight-wicket victory, setting the stage for an exciting battle in Antigua. West Indies enters this series following a recent ODI series against India, where they suffered a 2-1 defeat. In their last match against India, West Indies faced a substantial 200-run loss. India posted a challenging total of 351 runs for the loss of five wickets in their 50 overs. West Indies faltered, being bowled out for 151 runs in 35 overs. Gudakesh Motie's 39 runs and a wicket, along with Alick Athanaze's 32 runs, were the highlights for the West Indies, while Romaria Shepherd's two crucial wickets were a silver lining in a tough outing. England comes into this fixture fresh off an unsuccessful ODI World Cup campaign. But they emerged victorious against Pakistan. In their last match, England dominated with the bat, setting a formidable total of 337 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 50 overs. Pakistan struggled in response, managing only 244 runs in 43 overs. Ben Stokes' dynamic 84 runs, Joe Root's steady 60, and David Willey's impactful three-wicket haul were instrumental in England's commanding victory. Best economical pick–Gus Atkinson's debut call-up to England's World Cup squad stemmed from stellar County Championship and The Hundred performances. The rapid Surrey bowler hit 95 mph in The Hundred, notably unsettling Jos Buttler in a fiery encounter. Despite limited appearances—14 first-class matches, 2 List A games, and 41 T20s—Atkinson's prowess poses a threat to West Indies' batters. Come Sunday, he stands as the potential leading wicket-taker, capable of causing consistent trouble. Top captains & vice captains– Jos Buttler's World Cup stint as skipper faltered, the burden of captaincy seemingly impacting his performance. Across nine matches, Buttler managed a mere 138 runs at an underwhelming average of 15.33. Expectations are higher for the captain in the upcoming three-game ODI series. Buttler's form holds immense sway, capable of either propelling England towards victory or leading them into another disappointing defeat. A formidable all-rounder, Roston Chase's 687 runs and 27 wickets in ODIs not only underline his consistency but also highlight his immense value in both departments. His ability to stabilize the innings and contribute crucial breakthroughs makes him a linchpin for the team. Smart pick –A true all-rounder, Tom Curran's 418 runs and 30 wickets in ODIs illustrate his ability to contribute effectively with both bat and ball. His knack for delivering in pressure situations makes him a vital asset. Cautious Pick – Brydon Carse’s bowling performance has been unimpressive in the last few matches, so he can be avoided in your fantasy team. My XI – Jos Buttler (Captain), Roston Chase (Vice-Captain), Gus Atkinson, Tom Curran, Harry Brook, Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Alzari Joseph, Shai Hope, Liam Livingstone, Ben Duckett

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on December 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on December 3 The stage is set for the final showdown in the 5th T20I between Indiaand Australia, marking the culmination of the Australia tour of India 2023 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. India commands a 3-1 lead in the series, having secured a thrilling 20-run victory over Australia in the preceding match. Australia opted to bowl after winning the toss in the 4th T20I. India's opening batters, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rituraj Gaikwad, initiated their innings with a sturdy 50-run partnership. However, the dismissal of Jaiswal by Aaron Hardie and subsequent wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav disrupted India's momentum. Gaikwad, alongside Rinku Singh, reconstructed the innings with an additional 48-run partnership. Despite Gaikwad's dismissal, Singh and Jitesh Sharma contributed to India's total. Nevertheless, the team suffered a string of quick dismissals, posting 174/9 in 20 overs, with Ben Dwarshuis claiming three crucial wickets for Australia. Australia's chase commenced steadily, courtesy of Travis Head and Josh Phillipe's promising 40-run opening partnership. However, the introduction of spin saw Phillipe's departure, credited to Ravi Bishnoi. Axar Patel then dismissed Head, altering Australia's course. Tim David and Ben McDermott formed a 35-run partnership but couldn't maintain the required momentum. Though Matt Short and Matthew Wade attempted to stabilize, but their strike rate hindered their chase, and Australia concluded at 154/7 in 20 overs. Axar Patel and Deepak Chahar's pivotal wickets were instrumental in India's defence. Best economical pick–The young wrist-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has showcased impressive performances throughout the series, making it challenging for the Australian batters to read his deliveries. His skillful use of variations and change of pace has been a standout feature. In the last match, he bowled an economical spell and also secured a crucial wicket. Eager to maintain his brilliant form with the ball, he looks forward to concluding the series on a high note. Top captains & vice captains– Yashsavi Jaiswal contributed 37 vital runs in the top order, providing stability and a solid start to India's innings. His ability to anchor the batting upfront is pivotal for the team. Travis Head showed his all-round abilities, contributing 31 runs with the bat, displaying adaptability and playing a significant role in Australia's top-order stability. Smart pick –Making his comeback in the T20 team during the last match following a successful ODI World Cup, Shreyas Iyer couldn't make a substantial impact, being dismissed for just eight runs. As a senior member and the vice-captain of the team, he is eager to exhibit his batting prowess in the final match of the series, particularly against the inexperienced bowling lineup of Australia. Cautious Pick – Mukesh Kumar’s economy rate was unimpressive in the last match, so he can be avoided in your fantasy team. My XI – Yashsavi Jaiswal (Captain), Travis Head (Vice-Captain), Ravi Bishnoi, Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, Mathew Wade, Suryakumar Yadav, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rinku Singh, Avesh Khan, Jason Behrendroff

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on November 28 In the second T20I, Australia won the toss and elected to bowl.

Jaiswal played a destructive knock of 53 runs off 25 deliveries, including nine fours and two sixes, before he was dismissed on the penultimate delivery of the Powerplay.

India collected 71 runs in the death overs with the help of Rinku Singh’s 31 runs off just nine deliveries. They posted 235 runs for the loss of four wickets at the end of the 20th over mark.

Australia had a decent start but their first three wickets for 53 runs before the end of the Powerplay. They lost another wicket in the 8th over but the middle order ensured Australia reached a respectable total. Marcus Stoinis and Tim David had a decent partnership of 81 runs for the fifth wicket. Australia suddenly lost four wickets for just 16 runs. Matthew Wade did some tonking in the end and remained unbeaten on 42 runs off 23 deliveries. In the end, Australia could make 191 runs for the loss of nine wickets and lost the match by 44 runs. Best economical pick–The young wrist-spinner Ravi Bishnoi did not have a great start to the series as he conceded 54 runs in his four overs in the first game in Visakhapatnam. However, he redeemed himself in Thiruvananthapuram in the last game, finishing with excellent figures of 3/32 in four overs on a batting paradise and with plenty of dew on offer. Top captains & vice captains– The stylish left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal has had a fine start to his international career. He has looked in ominous touch in the series so far, having scored 74 runs in the two games at a mind-boggling strike rate of 224.24. Yashasvi will enjoy batting at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium and if he gets going, Australia will be in for a rough night. Steven Smith has scored 71 runs in two games so far at an average of 35.50 and a strike rate of 124.56. Smith has opened the innings for Australia in the series and has done that for the first time in his career. Smart pick –After getting run out for a golden duck in the first game, Ruturaj Gaikwad made a smooth comeback in the second match. He made 58 runs off 43 deliveries. Cautious Pick –Axar Patelhas taken just one wicket and scored two runs in two matches so far and can be left out of fantasy teams for this match. My XI – Yashasvi Jaiswal (Captain), Steve Smith (Vice-Captain), Ravi Bishnoi, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Glen Maxwell, Ishan Kishan, Mathew Wade, Surykumar Yadav, Marcus Stoinis, Josh Inglis, Adam Zampa

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on November 23,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Australia on November 23 After failing to clinch the ODI World Cup, team India is back in action as they are set to play a five-match T20I series against Australia, starting November 23 in Visakhapatnam. The majority of the senior players in the form of skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami among a few others have been given rest, while Hardik Pandya is yet to recover from his ankle injury. Australia too have given rest to some of the key players after a hectic World Cup. Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Cameron Green, David Warner and a few others have been given rest as Travis Head will be leading the team. Interestingly, Steven Smith has been named in the squad as he is likely to play at number three. With a couple of home Test series against West Indies and Pakistan, the legendary batter was expected to take a break but that hasn’t been the case.Meanwhile, both set of teams have a lot of youngsters in the mix, who don’t get enough opportunities to play international cricket. For players like Tanveer Sangha, Aaron Hardie and Spencer Johnson, this is a brilliant opportunity to exhibit their potential as the IPL auction is just a couple of weeks away. Last year, Cameron Green proved himself against India and he managed to become one of the most expensive cricketers in the history of franchise cricket. When it comes to India, players like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh and Ravi Bishnoi will be closely monitored. When the senior cricketers return, there will be a shortage of places in the playing XI and hence, this is the perfect opportunity to prove themselves and get ready ahead of the tour to South Africa. Best economical pick–Arshdeep Singh has slid down the pecking order as far as ODI cricket is concerned but he continues to be one of India's most potent weapons in T20 cricket. After having a dismal Indian Premier League campaign earlier this year, Arshdeep bounced back with a decent showing in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and helped Punjab go the distance. In the finals, he picked up four wickets for 23 runs against Baroda in a game in which 426 runs were scored. Top captains & vice captains– The Australian southpaw Travis Head scored a match-winning century in the finals of the ODI World Cup 2023 against India. He looked in sublime touch and will hope to continue his purple patch against a less experienced Indian bowling attack. Head has a formidable strike rate of 140.67 and the Indian pacers would want to see the back of him before he gets his eye in. Suryakumar Yadav will be back in his most beloved format of the game. India’s T20 sensation, Suryakumar Yadav, will be leading Indian side for the first time in his career. Surya had a dismal ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign as a batter and scored only 106 runs in 7 innings. This will be a massive opportunity for Suryakumar Yadav as skipper, and he will be taking up the role of number 4 batter. Smart pick –Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa ended up as second highest wicket-taker in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and took 23 wickets in 11 games. Zampa had a few failures initially but made a roaring comeback in the mega event. Australia will be using Adam Zampa’s form to their benefit in the upcoming five-match T20I series against India starting on Thursday in Visakhapatnam. Cautious Pick –Marcus Stoinishas not been in the best of form in the recent times and can be left out of fantasy teams in this game. My XI – Travis Head (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav (Vice-Captain), Arshdeep Singh, Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Mathew Wade, Ishan Kishan, Kane Richardson, Yashsavi Jaiswal, Axar Patel

Australia also won seven out of nine matches but finished in fourth place due to a lesser Net Run Rate. The last time both these teams faced each other in this tournament, South Africa won by a significant margin of 134 runs after posting a total of 311 runs on the board. Quinton de Kock scored a century for the Proteas, while Aiden Markram contributed 56 runs off 44 deliveries. Kagiso Rabada took three wickets for 33 runs in eight overs. Only Marnus Labuschagne managed to score more than 30 runs for Australia in that game. Australia defeated Bangladesh in their last outing by eight wickets after chasing down the target of 307 runs in 44.4 overs. Mitchell Marsh scored 177 runs off 132 deliveries and won the Player of the Match award here. South Africa finished their league stage campaign after defeating Afghanistan by five wickets. The Proteas chased down the target of 248 runs in 47.3 overs. Rassie van der Dussen scored an unbeaten 76 runs off 95 deliveries and was adjudged Player of the Match. Best economical pick–Adam Zampa's prowess in World Cup 2023 shines with 22 scalps, claiming wickets at a staggering rate of one every three-and-a-half overs, boasting an enviable average of 18.90. His pivotal all-round contribution was pivotal in Australia's triumph over England at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023, solidifying Zampa's status as a match-winner with both ball and bat. Top captains & vice captains– Mitchell Marsh, fuelled by an outstanding, unbeaten 177 against Bangladesh, cements his role as a linchpin for Australia. At the forefront of the batting charts, he's on the verge of a remarkable 500-run milestone. Marsh's versatility extends beyond his dynamic batting; his adept bowling prowess adds a crucial dimension to the squad. A genuine all-rounder, his skills make him an indispensable asset, defining him as a pivotal player in the team. Quinton de Kock became the first Proteas batter to score more than 500 runs in an edition of the ODI World Cup this year. He is just 82 runs away from matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most runs in an edition. De Kock has scored 591 runs in nine games at an average of 65.66 and a strike rate of 109.24. Smart pick –Glenn Maxwell is definitely going to make a comeback in the playing 11 in this important. Maxwell has scored 397 runs in seven games at an average of 79.40 and a strike rate of 152.69. He has five wickets as well to his name. Cautious Pick – Temba Bavuma has failed to score more than 25 runs for the Proteas in his last five outings and might not be the best pick for your fantasy teams. My XI – Mitchell Marsh (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, David Warner, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Marco Jansen, Pat Cummins, Heinrich Klassen, Travis Head

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on November 15 India will take on New Zealand in the first semi-final game of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Wednesday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India finished in first place at the end of the league phase with nine wins in nine games. The Kiwis have qualified for the semi-finals with five wins in nine games. India defeated New Zealand by four wickets in their last game after chasing down the target of 274 runs in 48 overs. Virat Kohli scored 95 runs off 104 deliveries in that game, while Mohammad Shami took a fifer. India defeated the Netherlands in their last outing by a huge margin of 160 runs after posting a total of 410 runs on the board. The top five made more than 50 runs each for India, which happened for the first time in a World Cup game. Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul went on to score their respective centuries. New Zealand chased down a mere target of 172 runs in 23.2 overs in their last game against Sri Lanka. Tren Boult was the pick of the bowlers for the Kiwis, with three wickets for 37 runs in 10 overs. Devon Conway finished as the highest run-scorer for the team with 45 runs off 42 deliveries. New Zealand last won an ODI game against India in India back in 2017 by six wickets on the back of a century from Tom Latham. It was Latham’s first ODI century against India. Also, this was the first time India and New Zealand played an ODI game at the Wankhede, the same venue where the semi-final game will be played. Best economical pick–Only three Kiwi batters have managed to make more than 500 runs in an edition of the World Cup. Daryl Mitchell is 82 runs away from becoming the fourth. He has made 418 runs in eight innings at an average of 59.71 and a strike rate of 110.58. Top captains & vice captains– The talismanic batter Virat Kohli is the highest run-getter in the tournament thus far. He has amassed 594 runs in nine innings at a staggering average of 99 and a decent strike rate of 88.52. He has scored five half-centuries and two centuries in the tournament and has been a pillar of India's batting. If the Kiwis fail to get him out quickly, they could be in serious trouble. Rachin Ravindra is just 13 runs away from scoring the most runs for New Zealand in an edition of the ODI World Cup. The 23-year-old all-rounder has scored 565 runs in nine games at an average of 70.62 and a strike rate of 108.44. He has hit three centuries and two half-centuries so far. Smart pick –The 33-year-old Mohammad Shami didn't play the first few matches but he got a chance, incidentally, in the league game against New Zealand. Shami showed his class by bagging a five-for. He has picked up 16 wickets in five games at a mind-boggling average of 9.56 and an equally impressive strike rate of 12. Shami's ability to pick up wickets at different stages of the match makes him a vital cog in India's lineup Cautious Pick – Mark Chapman has been dismissed for a single-digit score in three out of his last five outings. Chapman might not be the best pick for your fantasy team. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Rachin Ravindra (Vice-Captain), Daryl Mitchell, Mohammad Shami, Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson, Jasprit Bumrah, Shubman Gill, Devon Conway, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Afghanistan on November 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Afghanistan on November 10 Game 42 of the ongoingODI World Cup 2023will feature a clash between Afghanistan and South Africa at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday, November 10. South Africa, who have already qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament, will be keen on finishing the group stage with a win and continuing their form. On the other hand, Afghanistan’s qualification to the semis still hangs in the balance. Coming on the back of a loss against Australia in a match for the ages, Afghanistan will depend on other results and a win against the Proteas, if they want to qualify for the semifinal spot. Best economical pick–South Africa’s Marco Jansen could be the best bowler in Game 42 of the tournament. Showcasing his marvellous skills with the ball, Jansen has been a force to be reckoned with in the tournament so far. Taking 23 wickets in his last 10 matches, Jansen’s spell could be one that Afghanistan will look to watch out for. Top captains & vice captains– Ace South Africa batter Quinton de Kock could be the best batter in game 42 of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. Being the highest run-getter of the tournament, De Kock has been in exceptional form. Scoring 622 runs in his last matches, his knock could once again prove to be crucial for the Proteas. Ibrahim Zadran is coming off a brilliant ton against Australia, but it came in a losing cause. However, he will be confident enough to do something similar against South Africa to take his team into a good position. Zadran has scored 361 runs at an average of 51.57, which is very important if Afghanistan want to succeed against South Africa. Smart pick –Azmatullah Omarzai is the x-factor in this team because he is a big striker of the ball and then picks up wickets as well. He has been brilliant for his team in this tournament. Omarzai has taken 7 wickets so far and was on a hat-trick against Australia. Then, he has also scored 256 runs at an average and strike rate of 51.20 and 100.78. He will be the player to watch out for. Cautious Pick – Skipper Temba Bavuma is the weaker link in this batting line-up. He has scored only 122 runs in six innings, which sometimes puts pressure on the other batters and can be avoided for this game. My XI – Quinton de Kock (Captain), Ibrahim Zadran (Vice-Captain), Marco Jansen, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Kagiso Rabada, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klassen, Mohammad Nabi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rassie van der Dussen

Tanzim Hasan Shakib took three wickets on his World Cup debut. In their chase, Bangladesh lost two early wickets but had a crucial 169-run partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto. Mathews dismissed both, but it was too late. Bangladesh comfortably achieved the target of 280 runs with three wickets in hand in 41.1 overs. Dilshan Madushanka was Sri Lanka's top bowler with three wickets, while Maheesh Theekshana and Angelo Mathews took two wickets each. Best economical pick–Sadeera Samarwickrama is the leading run-scorer in the tournament for Sri Lanka. He has made 372 runs in eight innings at an average of 62 and a strike rate of 102.47. Top captains & vice captains– Rachin Ravindra could be the best batter in the clash between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. He is the Kiwis' leading run-scorer in the tournament, with 523 runs at an average of 74.71 and a strike rate of 107.39. He has scored three centuries and two half-centuries so far in the tournament. Dilshan Madhushanka is currently the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing ODI World Cup, having picked up 21 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 648. He is crucial for his side in most of Sri Lanka's games, despite their dismal outing so far in this competition. Smart pick –Kane Williamson has managed to play just two games so far and has scored a half-century in both his innings. Williamson made 95 runs off 79 deliveries in his last outing against Pakistan. Cautious Pick – Tom Latham has been dismissed for a single-digit score in two out of his last five outings and can be avoided for this game. My XI – Rachin Ravindra (Captain), Dilshan Madhushanka (Vice-Captain), Sadeera Samarwickrama, Kane Williamson, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Trent Boult, Charith Asalanka, Daryl Mitchell, Devon Conway, Mitchell Santner

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Netherlands on November 8,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Netherlands on November 8 England will take on the Netherlands in the 40th game of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Wednesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. England have managed just a single win in seven games so far and are in last place in the points tally. The Netherlands are still in the race to qualify for the semi-finals and have won two out of seven games. England last faced Australia in the tournament, and both teams faced early struggles in their innings. Australia lost their first two wickets with just 38 runs on the board, but Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship with a 75-run partnership. England's Adil Rashid dismissed Smith and Josh Inglis in quick succession. Labuschagne was Australia's top scorer with 71 runs, while Cameron Green contributed 47 runs. Australia managed to post a total of 286 runs, with Chris Woakes taking four wickets for England. In response, England also lost their first two wickets early but recovered with an 84-run partnership between Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes. However, England lost wickets consistently, and Ben Stokes was their top scorer with 64 runs. They were eventually bowled out for 286 runs, resulting in a 33-run defeat. Adam Zampa was the standout bowler for Australia with three wickets, while Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Pat Cummins took two each, and Marcus Stoinis claimed one wicket. The Netherlands faced Afghanistan in their last game and elected to bat after winning the toss. They lost their first wicket in the very first over. Max O’Dowd and Colin Ackermann added 70 runs for the second wicket, but the Netherlands lost the next three wickets quickly, ending with a total of 179 runs. Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi was the standout bowler with three wickets. In response, Afghanistan collected 55 runs in the Powerplay but lost early wickets. Rahmat Shah's 52 runs and Hashmatullah Shahidi's 56 runs led Afghanistan to victory by seven wickets in 31.3 overs. Afghanistan's strong batting performance secured the win. Best economical pick–Chris Woakes bowled the second-best spell for England in the last game in the tournament. He has taken a total of eight wickets in six games at an average of 31.50, an economy of 5.92, and a strike rate of 31.87. Top captains & vice captains– In an otherwise disastrous campaign for England, Dawid Malan has been the lone warrior with the bat for them as he’s the leading run scorer for his team. The southpaw has amassed 286 runs from seven innings at an average of 40.85 and a strike rate of 99.65 with one hundred and one fifty to his name. The seam all-rounder Bas de Leede is the leading wicket-taker for his side with 11 wickets to his name from six innings at an average of 30.09 and an economy of 7.04. Bas de Leede started his campaign with a brilliant four-wicket haul against Pakistan and will look to emulate his performance in the upcoming fixture. Smart pick –David Willey has taken six wickets in four games so far at an average of 30.66, an economy of 5.41, and a strike rate of 34. He was the highest wicket-taker for England last time England faced the Netherlands in an ODI series. Cautious Pick – Max O’Dowd has managed to score more than 20 runs only once in his last five games and can be avoided for this game. My XI – Dawid Malan (Captain), Bas de Leede (Vice-Captain), David Willey, Chris Woakes, Jonny Bairstow, Scott Edwards, Jos Buttler, Aryan Dutt, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid
