CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips  India vs South Africa on October 19, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on October 19 India come into this third Test having already sealed the series after winning the opening two matches, and they will be keen to wrap up the whitewash in Ranchi and pick up further points to consolidate their position at the top of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship. Following the two comprehensive victories, there is little reason for Virat Kohli and the selectors to change the winning formula although they may use this match to rotate their pack and rest Ravi Ashwin or Ravindra Jadeja who have bowled a lot of overs in the opening two Tests. South Africa are in a fair degree of disarray coming into this third and final Test match in India as they have so many players out of form and after spending long spells in the field, some of their veterans are struggling against this relentless Indian side. They have been dealt an injury blow with the news that Keshav Maharaj has been ruled out so left-arm spinner George Linde has flown in to replace him and there will likely be a fair number of further changes for this final Test. India have now won their last 11 Test series on home turf after they won the second Test and they will be keen to seal the whitewash here. They are in formidable form right now as they have a batting line-up that is relishing facing the South African bowlers who look incredibly flat, while their bowlers have the edge over the tourists’ fragile batting line-up. Best economical pick– Opener Mayank Agarwal has been on a roll in the series and he will be one of the first names on the team sheet for the upcoming Test. Agarwal slammed a majestic double ton in Vizag and followed it up with a century in Pune to cement his place in the side. Top captains & vice captains –Skipper Virat Kohli led India to record-breaking 11th series win at home and he will be eager to complete another whitewash. With that bat, Kohli returned to form in scintillating style as he slammed a double ton in Pune to end his big innings drought. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja can do almost everything. He can score big, score quickly and also pick wickets at crucial junctures of the game. And add his fielding abilities at pretty much every position possible, he becomes one of the most vital members of the Indian side. His spin-bowling will come in hand at the spinning track of Ranchi. Smart pick –Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been in sensational form in the series and is currently the highest-wicket-taker after two Test. Ashwin has decimated the South African batting line-up in both Tests and his spin played a massive role in India’s comprehensive victories. Cautions Pick –One of the batsmen who uncharacteristically succumbed to the seamers on both occasions was opener Aiden Markram. The opening batsman who was being looked upon as the torchbearer of the South African batting on this tour has had a forgettable two Test matches. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Ravindra Jadeja (Vice-Captain), Ravichandran Ashwin, Quinton de Kock, Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Mohammed Shami, Dean Elgar, Temba Bavuma

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips  India vs South Africa on October 10, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs South Africa on October 10 After the three-match T20I series finished at 1-1, India drew first blood in the three-match Test series. They were clinical in their performance at Visakhapatnam as they beat South Africa by a margin of 203 runs. After winning the toss and batting first, India rode on the big centuries made by the openers and they racked up 502 before declaring. South Africa fought hard too. On the back of tons from Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock, the visitors kept the deficit down to 71 runs. However, India bossed the game from the second innings as they put the foot on the accelerator and set South Africa a target of 395 with a little over a day to go. The Proteas crumbled in the fourth innings to hand India a 1-0 lead in this series. Hence, India gained 40 World Test Championship points as well which solidified their position at the top. The action now moves to Pune for the second Test where India will try to seal the series and create history by becoming the first team to register 11 successive Test series wins at home. Best economical pick– Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma opened together for the first time and had a wonderful outing. Both of them scored big hundreds as they laid the platform for India’s first innings total. The duo shared a mammoth stand of 317 runs in the first innings and made South Africa wait for 82 overs to get their first wicket of the series. Agarwal scored his maiden Test century which he then converted to a fantastic double ton. Proteas batsman Quinton de Kock has moved back into the Top 10 of the ICC Test batting rankings following their defeat against India in the first Test. De Kock returned to the Top 10 as he gained four places and moved to seventh for scoring his first Test century against India. De Kock made 111 off 163 balls in the first innings and shared a 164-run partnership with opener Elgar. Top captains & vice captains –Rohit Sharma who opened the batting for the first time in Test cricket could do no wrong. He blasted twin centuries as he scored 176 and 127 to run away with the Man of the Match award as well. It was his acceleration in the second innings that allowed India to set a big target. Smart pick –Indian left-arm all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja picked up his 200th Test wicket on Day 3 of the first Test against South Africa at Visakhapatnam. With that, Jadeja also became the fastest left-arm bowler to take 200 wickets in Test cricket. Jadeja took just 44 Tests to reach the mark, surpassing Rangana Herath of Sri Lanka (47 matches) who previously held the record. Cautions Pick –Rishabh Pant has been facing a lot of backlash after failing to deliver consistently at the international level. His poor shot selection has frequently put his team into trouble. Pant had scores of 27, 24 and 7 versus West Indies. Though he has been good when it comes to keeping behind the wickets, his poor form with the bat has been piling pressure on him. My XI – Rohit Sharma(Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Dean Elgar, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Dane Piedt, Keshav Maharaj, Mohammed Shami

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.
