CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on July 11, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs England on July 11 The mini Ashes-rivalry is set to take place for the second time in the 2019 World Cup. After Australia’s thumping 64-run victory over England at the Lord’s, the two teams are set to lock horns in the second semi-final. At the Edgbaston in Birmingham, the age-old rivals would be trying to book a summit clash berth at the Lord’s. The Aussies would be disappointed that they missed out on a top spot in the table. Aaron Finch’s men lost to South Africa by 10 runs at the Old Trafford in Manchester and finished second. The Three Lions, on the other hand, was in danger of even getting eliminated before the second round. The Brits lost at the hands of Sri Lanka and then the Aussies to find themselves in a rabbit hole. However, a couple of resounding victories against India and New Zealand took them to the semis. Best economical pick – Jason Roy missed a few games due to an injury, but he has made a tremendous comeback. In the last two matches, the Durban-born batter scored got scores of 66 and 60 and has been absolutely stupendous. Overall, the 28-year-old has notched 341 runs in six matches at an average of 68.20. His strike-rate of 114.04 shows how fluent he has been in his stroke-play. Top captains & vice captains – In nine matches, David Warner had racked up 638 runs at an average of 79.75. With three centuries and as many half-centuries, the southpaw has hardly looked out of touch. Even in the previous game against South Africa, he churned out a century, though it came in a losing cause. Jonny Bairstow had his difficulties in the first few games and looked a tad out of touch. However, the back-to-back tons he got in the previous games would give him a whole lot of confidence. In 9 matches, Bairstow has gotten 462 runs at an average of 51.33 at a strike-rate of 97.26. Smart pick – Ben Stokes has lived up to expectations in the mega event. He started with an 89 versus South Africa and now has four half-centuries in nine matches. Two of his knocks came in losing causes though. Currently, Stokes has 381 runs at an average of 54.42 at a strike-rate of 95.01. Stokes has also done his bit with the ball in hand, having picked up seven wickets with an economy of 4.65. Cautions Pick – The form of Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler has been a slight bit of concern. These two players, for all the talent that they’ve got, haven’t backed it up with good performances of late. It is a wonderful opportunity for them both to reclaim their stake and there can’t be a better stage than this one. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Jonny Bairstow (Vice-Captain), Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Aaron Finch, Mitchell Starc, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes, Alex Carey, Steve Smith, Mark Wood

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on July 9, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs New Zealand on July 9 After some riveting encounters in the main round, the 2019 World Cup, the stage is now set for the semi-finals. The first of them is scheduled to be played tomorrow between India and New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester. It’s a venue where all the five games went in favor of the team, batting first and hence, the toss could play an important factor in deciding the result of the crunch encounter. The Kiwis are coming into the game on the back of three back-to-back defeats at the hands of Pakistan, England and Australia respectively. The Men in Blue, on the contrary, finished on top of the table with 15 points from nine matches. Barring their 31-run stutter against the Three Lions, Virat Kohli & Co. haven’t done much wrong and would be looking to book a berth for Finals Day on July 14. Best economical pick – KL Rahul has shouldered the responsibility of opening the batting pretty efficiently. The Karnataka batsman has notched 360 runs at an average of 51.42. In the first few games, he got starts, but couldn’t convert them. But in the last game, he turned up with a sparkling knock of 111 and it would’ve done his confidence a world of good. Top captains & vice captains – Rohit Sharma is currently in the middle of a purple patch, having scored 647 runs in eight matches at an average of 98.77. The 32-year-old racked up three tons in a row and is the only batsman with five centuries in a single edition of the World Cup. The right-hander has peaked at the right time in the tournament and would wish to carry on with his awe-inspiring run of form. One of the very reasons why the Kiwis are in the semis is Kane Williamson. Most of the times, he came in after the openers failed and he bailed his team out of jail. It’s not a surprise that he is their leading run-scorer with 481 runs in eight games at 96.20. He’ll be looking to increase his strike-rate, which is currently at 77.20. Smart pick – Virat Kohli hasn’t been outstanding by any means, but he has done his job with precision. At a decent average of 63.14, Virat has racked up 442 runs in eight matches with the top score of 82 versus Australia. The 30-year-old has five 50-plus scores and has steadied the ship more often than not in the middle order. Cautions Pick – New Zealand’s highest ranked batsmen in ODIs, Ross Taylor has struggled to come up with meaningful contributions in their last three games. With a lot of players already out of form, Kane Williamson would be devastated if Taylor departs quickly and at this point in time. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Kane Williamson (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson, Jasprit Bumrah, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik

Critical Updates
  • Mark Wood

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Mark Wood was brilliant against New Zealand and picked up a three-wicket haul. Similar exploits are expected of him once again.

  • Adil Rashid

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : The management has backed Adil Rashid extensively and will continue to do so. Even though he is slightly expensive, Rashid picks up some important wickets.

  • Liam Plunkett
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Liam Plunkett has performed extremely well through the middle overs with the ball. His variations are highly effective and he does a fair job with the bat as well.
  • Chris Woakes

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Chris Woakes will open the bowling for his team and even adds a great bit of depth to the batting. He is someone who can strike big right from the first ball.

  • Joe Root

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Joe Root will continue at number three. His role is to hold the batting together and get a good score. Root should back his natural game and shouldn’t fancy any cheeky shots. England’s chances of winning the game will increase significantly if he stays in the middle till the end of the 50th over.
