ICC World Cup – Bangladesh v India
Tuesday night (Australian time) will see a very intriguing match take place in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, when India look set to lock their place in the final 4, while Bangladesh need a win to keep their slim finals hopes alive.
India have played 7 games so far winning 5, while their match against New Zealand was washed out. India beat South Africa by 6 wickets, Australia by 36 runs, Pakistan by 89 runs, Afghanistan by just 11 runs and then hammered the West Indies by 125 runs. Most recently India lost to England by 31 runs.
Bangladesh have had 3 wins and 3 losses so far with 1 match washed out. They beat South Africa by 21 runs, the West Indies by 7 wickets and Afghanistan by 62 runs. A win here could elevate them to 5th on the table and equal on wins with Pakistan.
MoneyBall’s major contest for this match has a total of $8,000 in prizemoney on the line, with a $15 entry fee. DraftStars also has a $8,000 major competition that also costs $15 to join. Both sites also have smaller contests worth $2 and paying out $500.
Shakib Al Hasan – BAN ($25,460 DraftStars) ($9,000 MoneyBall)
Afghanistan’s star all-rounder has the clearly highest fantasy score average and form (last 3 games) average at both DraftStars and MoneyBall. With the bat he has produced scores 75, 64, 121, 124, 41 and 51, hitting a total of 50 boundaries.
It’s not just with the bat that he has dominated. He’s also taken 10 wickets and a catch. Being a top order batsmen and main bowler, he has a very high chance of scoring in every game.
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.
Hardik Pandya – IND ($14,770 DraftStars) ($8,000 MoneyBall)
Indian All-Round Pandya has been scoring consistently solid scores, with 4 of his last 5 games producing fantasy scores at DraftStars over 76.5, while over at MoneyBall all of his last 5 games has produced scores of at least 42.
He’s had 3 of his last 5 scores with the bat in the 40’s, while his World Cup batting strike rate is over 140. He’s also taken 5 wickets, 2 catches and bowled 1 maiden over.
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) ($5,100 MoneyBall)
Bangladeshi bowler Mashrafe Mortaza has been largely poor so far this tournament. With the bat he’s scored a total of 11 runs off 16 balls across 3 innings, while taking just 1 wicket from 44 overs bowled. He might be very cheap but he’s also a strong chance of barely registering a score.
