ICC World Cup – Bangladesh v Sri Lanka
Tuesday night will see the sixteenth match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup take place when Bangladesh faces Sri Lanka at the Country Ground.
Bangladesh opened with an impressive 21 run victory over South Africa, before suffering back-to-back losses against New Zealand in a fairly closely-fought battle, by 2 wickets and host nation England in a more lopsided encounter, by 106 runs.
Sri Lanka were easily accounted for in their first game, losing to New Zealand by an immense 10 wickets, before doing just enough to beat Afghanistan by a meagre 34 runs. Their third match against Pakistan was washed out before play even started.
MoneyBall and DraftStars both have some big cash to give away for this game. DraftStars has $5,000 on the line in their major contest, which costs $15 to enter, however MoneyBall has an even bigger major prize pool of $8,000 up for grabs, also with a $15 buy-in. Both sites have a host of smaller comps too, so no matter what your budget or skill level, there is a comp that suits you.
To help give you an edge over your opponents, Daily Fantasy Rankings once again have an exclusive cheat sheet available for this game, which you can find here.
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 ($24,900 DraftStars) ($7,600 MoneyBall)
Al Hasan is the most expensive player at both sites and also has the highest average fantasy score across both, which shows just how well he really is playing. He’s scored 260 runs so far, from 2 50’s and a century, while also having taken 3 wickets, bowling all 10 overs in each game.
He’s also taken a catch and comes into this match on the back of a brilliant 121 off 119 balls against England. He’s in red hot form right now and getting better.
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.
Kusal Perera – SRL ($17,250 DraftStars) ($7,000 MoneyBall)
Sri Lanka’s keeper and opening batsman hasn’t really had a chance to show his full capabilities yet, yet has still notched tidy fantasy scores. He scored 29 against New Zealand in his opening game and then a much better 78 in his second match.
That second game, against Afghanistan, saw him hit eight boundaries and also snare a catch behind the stumps. Don’t be surprised if he pulls out a similar performance in this match.
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.
Angelo Mathews – SRL ($8,810 DraftStars) ($6,500 MoneyBall)
Mathews comes with an affordable price tag, making him worthwhile to look at for a point of difference, however his form is very poor. As far as fantasy scoring goes, he’s the only player in this match who has an average fantasy score of less than 0. That’s something that is hard to ignore and even harder to justify selecting.
There’s a wealth of other options worth similar and less who are in better form who would be better selections in any fantasy side at this stage.
