CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs South Africa on June 21,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs South Africa on June 21 Match 45 of the T20 World Cup 2024 promises to be an exciting encounter as England (ENG) and South Africa (SA) are set to face off in the Group 2 Super 8 clash. The two are scheduled to meet at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia, on Friday (June 21). England did not have a great start to their tournament—winning two out of four league matches—but they somehow managed to make it to the Super 8 stage. However, an eight-wicket thrashing of hosts West Indies in the opener ensured the defending champions would not start the second round on the back foot. Meanwhile, South Africa won all their group matches and started the Super 8 phase on a winning note, defeating the co-hosts United States by 18 runs. Will England continue their winning momentum or will the Proteas remain unbeaten? . Best economical pick – Anrich Nortje is currently the second-best bowler in the series with 10 wickets in five matches. With the pitch likely to assist the pace bowlers more, Nortje is expected to have an effective outing in St Lucia. Top captains & vice captains – A Phili Salt assault in the Super 8 saw West Indies crushed by eight wickets. The England opener scored an unbeaten 47 off 87 with seven fours and five sixes. Salt is likely to continue his good form as the upcoming match will be held at the same venue. Quinton de Kock had a dull start to his World Cup campaign, but the tables turned once he entered the Super 8 stage. The keeper-batter was adjudged Player of the Match against the USA for scoring 74 off 40 balls. Smart pick – David Miller proved in the match against the Netherlands that he can be there when the team is in trouble. The southpaw steered SA to victory with an unbeaten 59 out of misery. He is a key player for the Proteas. Cautious Pick – Reeza Hendricks has struggled so far in the tournament. His highest score is 43 against Nepal, but that too came at a concerning strike rate of 87.76. My XI – Phili Salt (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Jonny Bairstow, Aiden Markram, Liam Livingstone

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Bangladesh on June 21,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Bangladesh on June 21 Australia and Bangladesh will face off in the first round of matches in Group 1 of the Super-8 stages of the T20 World Cup 2024. Both sides have advanced to the next stage of the tournament despite varied results. Australia (AUS) won all their matches in the group stages and has looked to be one of the best teams in the tournament. The former T20 World Cup winners will look to start on a bright note and look to dominate the Bangladeshi team with their explosive players in their team. Bangladesh (BAN) began their tournament with a close win against Sri Lanka before losing to South Africa. The controversial decision during the match meant that the Proteas took home all the points. Bangladesh, though, bounced back with wins over the Netherlands and Nepal to make it to the Super-8 stages as the second-placed team in Group D. Best economical pick – Young Tanzim Hasan Sakib was the best bowler in the game versus Nepal . In his four overs he gave away just 7 runs and picked 4 wickets to rattle the Nepal batting unit and he will be a dangerous bowler under lights against a formidable Aussie batting unit. Top captains & vice captains – Australia’s Travis Head could be the best batter in the upcoming game against Bangladesh, Head has been in impeccable form as of late, scoring 250 runs in his last seven matches. The ace opener will be keen on continuing his form and propelling his side to another quickfire start. Former skipper Shakib Al Hasan has found his groove again and has been batting beautifully. His half-century against Netherlands and his 17 versus Nepal was the top score for Bangladesh. The Tigers will hope Shakib finds yet another game changing performance when they face the Aussies. Smart pick – Ace leg spinner Adam Zampa could prove to be the best bowler for Australia in the upcoming clash against Bangladesh. With 19 wickets in his last 10 matches, Zampa has been exceptional for the Aussies and continues to showcase in class whenever he plays. Cautious Pick – Bangladeshi opener Tanzid Hasan has managed to score only 47 runs from his 4 matches with 35 of them coming in one innings against Netherlands. The 23-year-old will be wary that the Aussies will come hard at him on a helpful wicket in Antigua. My XI – Travis Head (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan (Vice-Captain), Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Adam Zampa, Litton Das, Marcus Stoinis, Mustafizur Rahman, David Warner, Pat Cummins, Mahmudullah, Mitchell Marsh

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Afghanistan vs India on June 20,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Afghanistan vs India on June 20 Although both teams have garnered three victories from four matches, their standings in their respective groups diverged significantly. India ascended to the pinnacle of Group A, aided by the abandonment of their final league match against Canada due to inclement weather. Conversely, Afghanistan secured the second position in Group C, following a demoralizing 104-run defeat by the co-hosts, West Indies. India boast a dominant record against Afghanistan in T20Is, having emerged victorious in six out of their eight encounters, with one match yielding no result and one getting tied. However, their previous clash, the final match of the bilateral series, was a riveting spectacle, necessitating two Super Overs to reach a conclusion. Given Afghanistan's formidable form this time around, a fierce and closely contested match is anticipated. The conditions, highly conducive for the Afghans, given their potent spinners coupled with their propensity to excel in high-stakes encounters, promise an enthralling battle. India's pace battery is something Afghanistan should be wary about, and it promises an intense battle between the Afghan openers and the new-ball pair of Arshdeep Singh and Jasprit Bumrah. Best economical pick – India's young pace sensation Arshdeep Singh was the pick of the bowlers in the game against USA with a four wicket haul. Arshdeep can potentially trouble the Afghan openers with his ability to swing the ball into the right-handed batters. Top captains & vice captains – Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been the best batter for Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup. His ability to strike the ball clean and score big runs will make the Indian team wary of his threat. India's hopes of getting early wickets will rest on the shoulders of their star pacer Jasprit Bumrah. The pacer has been in great form in the last few months and his ability to take wickets with the new ball and old will not be lost on the Afghan side. Smart pick – Left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi has been one of the best bowlers of the T20 World Cup and with his ability to swing the ball he could pose a huge challenge to the Indian top order. Cautious Pick – Veteran batter Najibullah Zadran has failed to get going with the bat and this has made him a weak link in the team. With all the experience he has with the bat, Najibullah Zadran needs to start firing for his team. My XI – Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah (Vice-Captain), Arshdeep Singh, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Rashid Khan, Shivam Dube, Ibrahim Zadran, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Scotland on June 16,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Australia vs Scotland on June 16 Australia and Scotland will play their last match of the Group B encounter of the T20 World Cup on Saturday evening. The Australians are already through to the Super-8 stage after their 3 successive wins. Scotland on the other hand will be praying that Namibia can do them a favor by beating England in the earlier encounter on Saturday. Mitchell Marsh and his Australian (AUS) side have played flawless cricket so far to win all three games. Their only stumbling block came in the first match against Oman where they were troubled in the first ten overs. Once they found their groove, Australia have been the team to watch out for in this campaign. Scotland (SCO) have proved to the world why they were called as dark-horses ahead of the T20 World Cup. The Scots began the campaign against arch-rivals England but had to share points as the game was abandoned due to rain. With wins over Oman and Namibia, the Scots now have things firmly in their grasp if they have to make it to the next stage. Best economical pick – The veteran Scotland batter Richie Berrington has been for years one of their best batters and his unbeaten 47 against Namibia in the last match showed the immense value he adds to the team. Top captains & vice captains – As this ongoing mega-event marks his final appearance before retiring from international cricket, the southpaw David Warner would be exceptionally eager to leave a lasting impact. He would be aspiring to make a significant impression during his side's final group-stage game of the tournament. Fresh off an outstanding Player of the Match performance with figures of 4/12 against Namibia, the crafty leg-spinner Adam Zampa would be brimming with confidence. He would aim to continue his wicket-taking momentum and build his confidence further as he heads into the Super Eight stage. Smart pick – One of the dangerous batters in the world today, Travis Head has been smashing each and every bowler to all parts of the ground. The left-handed batter scored 34 runs from 17 balls against England to show how dangerous he can be with the bat. Cautious Pick – Left-arm spinner Mark Watt was the most expensive bowler for Scotland against Namibia having given away 39 runs from his 4 wickets without claiming a wicket. Watt could come under severe punishment once again if he fails to find his form against the Aussie side. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Adam Zampa (Vice-Captain), Richie Berrington, Travis Head, Michael Leask, Brad Wheal, Matthew Cross, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Tim David

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Namibia on June 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Namibia on June 15 It is the final match of Group B as England will take on Namibia in a key encounter in Antigua on Saturday. Defending champions England had decimated Oman in their previous game and will want to win their 2nd game of the tournament. Namibia, on the other hand, will want to end their tournament on a high with a huge win against the fancied English side. Namibia (NAM) began the T20 World Cup with a win over Oman in the Super Over. Their next match saw them outplayed by Australia before losing to Scotland. That loss knocked them out of the chance to make it to the Super 8 stages. Gerhard Erasmus will hold his head up with pride and look to take lots of positives from the campaign. England (ENG) won their match against Oman with 101 balls to spare to attain a huge win. This win not only kept them in the hunt for a place in the Super 8 stage, but also they could make it to the next phase of the tournament as the second-place team if Australia beat Scotland. Best economical pick – After his lone ranger effort against Australia, Gerhard Erasmus scored a fifty for Namibia in the game against Scotland. The Namibia skipper also picked 2 wickets to cap off a near perfect day on the field. Top captains & vice captains – Phil Salt could be the batter to watch for in this encounter. The 27-year-old was in sensational form during the recently concluded Indian Premier League. Against Australia, he played a swashbuckling knock of 37 off 23 balls, hitting four fours and two sixes. If Salt gets going, Oman bowlers will be in peril. Namibia wicket-keeper Zane Green has become a key part of his national side and he has been moderately successful with the bat and the gloves during the current campaign. Smart pick – Mark Wood could have an impact in this game. The tearaway pacer could run through batting lineups on his day. He is yet to pick up a wicket in the five overs he has bowled in the marquee event this year. However, the Oman batters aren't used to facing bowlers who can bowl as fast as Wood. The 34-year-old would be raring to go on Saturday. Cautious Pick – Having conceded 39 runs from his 3 overs the Namibian seamer Tangeni Lungameni was taken off the attack even before he could bowl his 4th. England batters will feast on such loose bowling and the Namibians will hope that he can find his form soon. My XI – Phil Salt (Captain), Zane Green (Vice-Captain), Gerhard Erasmus, Mark Wood, Pratik Athavale, Jos Buttler, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Adil Rashid

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Canada on June 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips India vs Canada on June 15 With three wins to their name, India are on top of the Group A points table. Up next, the Rohit Sharma-led side will face Canada on June 15 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill in Florida. The Saad Bin Zafar-led side suffered a seven-wicket defeat in the last match but a win against India can boost their chances to qualify for the Super 8 (given other calculations go their way) of the ongoing T20 World Cup but it won’t be an easy task. India are one of the most balanced sides in the tournament. Despite Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli not scoring consistently, India have managed to do well with the bat, which shows their depth. Rishabh Pant has been sensational while Suryakumar Yadav did well in the last match against the USA. The team can count on Hardik Pandya as well but Ravindra Jadeja needs to improve significantly, or else the team can consider bringing in Kuldeep Yadav. Best economical pick – The burly opening batter from Canada Aaron Johnson smashed a well compiled fifty in the previous game against Pakistan. His big hitting skills could come to the fore again if he decides to take on the Indian bowlers. Top captains & vice captains – India skipper Rohit Sharma would be gunning to get back to form ahead of the Super 8. He has looked in good touch but couldn’t capitalize in the last couple of matches. India need one of its top three to fire and Rohit would want to lead from the front. The conditions will be favorable and Rohit can get the job done. Indian wicket-keeper and batter Rishabh Pant has been at the top of his game with the bat ever since his return to the game. The 26-year-old has been the best and most consistent batter for India during this campaign. Smart pick – Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the best bowlers in the T20 World Cup. The 30-year-old failed to pick a wicket against USA but the quality he brings to the table is undeniable and will be a huge threat to the batters in conditions favorable to the bowlers. Cautious Pick – Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja has yet to fire with the bat or with the ball in hand. With the experience he has in his arsenal, Jadeja will hope to start firing and help India reach the knock-outs. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Rishabh Pant (Vice-Captain), Aaron Johnson, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Nicholas Kirton, Dillon Heyliger, Arshdeep Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, Axar Patel

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Uganda on June 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips New Zealand vs Uganda on June 15 New Zealand for the first time in the history of the T20 World Cup failed to qualify for the second round of the competition. With two defeats to their name, the Kane Williamson-led side is officially out of the tournament but will aim to finish well and give their fans some joy. They are slated to face Uganda on June 15 at Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad, who are out of the race as well but won’t shy away from causing an upset. New Zealand batters have failed to deliver in the ongoing tournament, which led to their downfall. In the last match, Glenn Phillips made 40 runs off 33 deliveries and tried to get the job done but West Indies eventually picked up a 13-run win. The skipper himself is going through a rough patch as some of his decisions too received a lot of criticism. Best economical pick – Young Juma Miyagi has been one of the best stories during the early phase of the T20 World Cup. The Uganda star has done well both with the bat and also with the ball and helped his side out of a few tough situations. Top captains & vice captains – Flamboyant batter Glenn Phillips had a very good time in the middle in the last match. He would fancy to continue with the same form and help New Zealand win their first game in the tournament. He is a very good player of spin and can make a difference against a reasonably weak bowling attack of Uganda. The 29-year-old Alpesh Ramjani bowled well in the game against West Indies picking 1/16 from his 3 overs which included the wicket of Brandon King. With New Zealand struggling against quality spin, Alpesh Ramjani will fancy his chances against the Kiwis. Smart pick – Trent Boult with the new ball can prove to be extremely dangerous. He picked up three wickets in the last match and will aim to repeat the same against Uganda. The Brian Masaba-led side don’t have enough experience and it would be difficult for them to face the wrath of Boult. Cautious Pick – One of the most experienced players in Uganda and perhaps the best batter, Roger Mukasa has gone through his worst phase with the bat at perhaps his biggest stage of his professional cricket career. My XI – Glenn Phillips (Captain), Alpesh Ramjani (Vice-Captain), Trent Boult, Juma Miyagi, Kane Williamson, Devon Conway, Brian Masaba, Cosmas Kyewuta, Tim Southee, Finn Allen, Daryl Mitchell

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Nepal on June 15,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips South Africa vs Nepal on June 15 South Africa became the first team to make it to the Super-8 Stages of the T20 World Cup 2024 with their win against Bangladesh. Aiden Markram and his side have been efficient and professional in their approach so far this campaign. Nepal on the other hand have to win both their matches to keep their faint hopes alive. The South Africans (SA) have enjoyed the bowling friendly conditions that were prevalent in New York so far. As they move to the Caribbean, they will encounter more friendly tracks where their pacers and also Keshav Maharaj’s spin will come into play. Nepal (NEP) began the tournament with a loss to Netherland before their game against Sri Lanka got washed out. Bangladesh’s win over the Dutch has put pressure on Nepal to win both their matches left. Rohit Paudel’s side will also have a huge game against the Bangladeshis to try and make it to the Super-8’s. Best economical pick – South Africa’s Ottneil Baartman could be the best bowler in the upcoming game against Nepal. With eight wickets in his last four matches, Baartman has been one of the most in-form bowlers in the side, and his spell could be crucial against Nepal. Top captains & vice captains – South Africa’s Heinrich Klaasen could be the best batter in the upcoming game against Nepal, scoring 46 runs in 44 deliveries. Klaasen was the best batter for his side in the previous game against Bangladesh, and a lot will be dependent upon him in the upcoming game as well. Nepal will want their skipper to take up the mantle of scoring in the game against South Africa. Rohit Paudel was the best batter for Nepal against Netherlands in their first match. Smart pick – The South African pacer Anrich Nortje has been one of the best bowlers during the tournament and his pace and bounce has left the best batters in the business troubled. Cautious Pick – Nepal spinner Sagar Dhakal didn't pick any wicket in the game against Netherlands. Considering the talent he has it was a disappointing return. My XI – Heinrich Klaasen (Captain), Rohit Paudel (Vice-Captain), Ottneil Baartman, Anrich Nortje, David Miller, Sompal Kami, Aasif Sheikh, Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, Tristan Stubbs, Kagiso Rabada

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips USA vs Ireland on June 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips USA vs Ireland on June 14 Group A matches are set for its final run of matches with the United States of America set to take on Ireland. This will be the final match of the Group A phase for co-hosts USA who have punched above their weight. Ireland on the other hand will be left deflated after their dismal showing within the first two matches of the T20 World Cup which has left them on the door of early exit. The United States of America (USA) have stunned many fans across the world with their professional performance during their debut in the T20 World Cup. Starting with a win against Canada, the USA side then beat Pakistan to send shockwaves across the world. Their first loss of the campaign came against India to put them second in the table. A win over Ireland is all that is needed to make it to the Super-8 stages and qualify with India and knock out the other three teams from the reckoning. Ireland (IRE) would have expected to give tough fight to teams like India and Pakistan. The Irish side were expected to hold their own and show their superiority against Canada but that hasn’t happened. Paul Stirling and his team were humbled by India in their opening encounter before losing to Canada in one of the shocks of the tournament. Ireland will now look to close out the campaign on a high and look to do well against USA in their penultimate game. Best economical pick –The Irish pacer Mark Adair was the best player in the park for his side with an explosive 34 with the bat and also 1/23 with the ball from 4 overs in his previous match against Canada. Top captains & vice captains – Aaron Jones has been in brilliant form since the start of the World Cup. He is the second-leading run-getter of the tournament with 141 runs after three matches. In the first game, he scored an unbeaten 40-ball 94 against Canada before following it up with a 26-ball 36 versus Pakistan. In their previous game against India, the 29-year-old scored 11 runs. At No. 3, Jones' role is going to be very crucial for the USA. The veteran Ireland star George Dockrell has consistently been one of the best players and his ability to bat well and pick key wickets makes him a dangerous player. Smart pick – USA veteran pacer Saurabh Netravalkar was at his best against the country of his birth as he picked 2/18 from his 4 overs. Saurabh Netravalkar will remember getting the big two of Indian cricket to put the opposition under early pressure. Cautious Pick – Coming into the team for the injured Monank Patel, Shayan Jahangir was out in the very first ball of the USA innings to put his side under pressure. USA will hope that Monank Patel can make a comeback to the team as his experience was badly missed against India. My XI – Aaron Jones (Captain), George Dockrell (Vice-Captain), Mark Adair, Saurabh Netravalkar, Andries Gous, Corey Anderson, Josh Little, Paul Stirling, Nitish Kumar, Ali Khan, Andy Balbirnie

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Afghanistan vs PNG on June 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Afghanistan vs PNG on June 14 Group C will witness Afghanistan take on Papua New Guinea in their respective penultimate matches of the group phase games. The Afghanistan side just need to win their match against PNG to officially knock out New Zealand and enter the Super 8 stages. PNG on the other hand will look to cause an upset as they have already lost their first two matches of the campaign. Afghanistan (AFG) began with a huge 125-run win over Uganda before stunning New Zealand. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Rashid Khan were the heroes with the ball while Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran led the charge with the bat. Papua New Guinea (PNG) began their tournament with a loss to West Indies despite giving their best. Their loss to Uganda will rankle them as they bowled well to reduce their opponents to 26/5 before a dropped chance turned the game against them. Best economical pick –The left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi has been the best bowler so far during the T20 WC with 9 wickets from 2 matches which also includes a fifer against Uganda. Top captains & vice captains – Afghanistan wicket-keeper and opening batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been amongst the runs with two back to back fifties and has been one of the players to watch out for. Hiri Hiri was the best batter for PNG on a rather miserable day with the bat. The likes of Tony Ura and Assad Vala's inability to get going has meant that PNG have struggled to put a good score on the board. Smart pick – The 30-year-old right arm pacer Alei Nao was the best bowler for PNG in the match against Uganda where he picked two wickets and also was economical in his 4 overs. Cautious Pick – The world was waiting for Tony Ura to show his best with the bat but that hasn't happened and he will look back at this tournament as a lost opportunity to showcase his skills. My XI – Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Captain), Hiri Hiri (Vice-Captain), Alei Nao, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Ibrahim Zadran, Rashid Khan, Assad Vala, Mohammad Nabi, Sese Bau, Azmatullah Omarzai, Gulbadin Naib
