ICC World Cup – Australia v Bangladesh
Game 26 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup will take place at Trent Bridge this Thursday, where the high-flying Australian side takes on a very competitive Bangladesh outfit.
Australia eased into their World Cup campaign with a comfortable 7 wicket victory over Afghanistan, before battling to a tight 15 run victory over a very strong West Indian outfit. They then lost to long-time rivals India by 36 runs in an entertaining contest, before bouncing back with a 41 run win over Pakistan. In their most recent game, from five days ago, Australia defeated Sri Lanka by a solid 87 runs.
Bangladesh opened their tournament also with a win, by 21 runs over South Africa. They were then pipped by New Zealand by 2 wickets and then resounding losers to England by 106 runs. Their match against Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain. They then played the West Indies, who set them a target of 322 runs, which Bangladesh achieved in the 42nd over, to win by a huge 7 wickets.

The DFR match-winner is a guaranteed stud who might cost you an arm and a leg, but is going to score well on any given night.
Shakib Al Hasan – BAN ($23,190 DraftStars) ($8,500 MoneyBall)
The Bangladesh all-rounder has been in stunning form in this World Cup so far. He scored back-to-back half-centuries against South Africa and New Zealand before notching 121 off 119 against England before scoring a sparkling unbeaten 124 off 99 balls. He’s also taken 5 wickets
He has one of the top 2 highest average fantasy score at DraftStars with 167.8, while his last 3 game average score is 184.1, while over at MoneyBall he tops the average and last 3 games form average scores at 85.4 and 89.0 respectively, which are immensely high.
The night-watchmen will be a great point of difference in your team and plugging him somewhere in the middle order could be the difference between winning or losing.
Alex Carey – AUS ($12,750 DraftStars) ($5,500 MoneyBall)
Australia’s keeper and middle order batsman has been punching out some respectable fantasy scores in the 2019 World Cup, especially in his last two games where he scored a powerful 55 not out off 35 balls against India and 45 off 55 balls against the West Indies.
His wicket-keeping though has been the backbone of his good scores, as he’s taken 13 catches and made 1 stumping in his 5 games so far. He’s brilliant value, especially at MoneyBall, while being well priced at DraftStars, making him a very good option in any fantasy side.
Fine-leg to Fine-leg
Anyone who’s played a game of grade cricket before knows that only the duds go from fine leg to fine leg. Avoid these guys like the plague.
Mashrafe Mortaza – BAN ($8,000 DraftStars) ($5,700 MoneyBall)
The Bangladesh opening bowler and tail end batsman has had a less than brilliant campaign thus far. He’s batted twice, scoring a total of 5 runs, while taking just 1 wicket from 29 overs, while conceding 6.41 runs per over, which is quite high for someone who bowls at the start of an innings.
