Derbyshire vs Australia A 2019 – 2nd ODI Fantasy Preview

One of the major rules in ‘A’ teams fantasy cricket is that you pick those players who have played for the country’s national side in the past. Apply the same here as Australia A is touring England for a series of 5 unofficial ODIs followed by 2 unofficial Tests. AUS-A is expected to maintain a similar team for the 2nd ODI here in Derby against Derbyshire. The visitors are favourites and are likely to win too, in one of the few matches happening away from the ICC 2019 World Cup.

Again, pick the captain of the home team and players you know will play for sure. If Derbyshire bat first, we know that anything below 300 is going to be difficult to defend as Australia A chased down 260+ within 36 overs in the 1st ODI against Northamptonshire. My advice would be to pick a 7-4 fantasy team in favour of AUS A. Keep reading for our complete PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the DER vs AUS-A 2nd ODI…

  • Australia A completed 260+ chase in 36 overs in the 1st ODI.
  • Ravi Rampaul – two 5-fers for Derbyshire in last one month.


For the home team, Billy Godleman is set to captain the side and he may be a good batsman pick in the 2nd ODI as well, having smashed 227 in a FC game against Glamorgan earlier this month. Also watch out for all-rounder Fynn Hudson-Prentice and pick him for sure if he makes the team. He has a fifty and a couple of unbeaten centuries in just the last couple of months for Derbyshire 2nd XI, to go with plenty of wickets too.

Wayne Madsen could also be a good option with the bat, having scored 2 centuries for the Derbyshire senior team in the last 2 months, while he does bowl occasionally as well. Another handy player to have in your team is Matthew Critchley, who hasn’t got any big scores in recent times nor has he bagged too many wickets, but the all-rounder is always in the game and can help you put up some points in fantasy leagues.

Australia A

We spoke about Matthew Wade coming off 3 fifties and a century in 4 Sheffield Shield matches. Peter Handscomb took over wicket-keeping duties and will continue to do so in this game which means Wade has only his batting to worry about. I made him my captain in the last game and he repaid the faith with a well made 117. Now, with many more players selecting him, I’d pick him as a normal player and find another captain.

That captain could come in Mitchell Marsh, who was closes to a spot in the 2019 World Cup and he played well in the AUS-A 1st ODI, smashing 40* and taking a couple of wickets too. D’Arcy Short has come off a rough patch and scored 7 in the 1st ODI so I’ll keep him out again. With the ball, Josh Hazlewood should undoubtedly be in your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team. Again, he narrowly missed CWC 2019 selection and 2/51 in the 1st ODI shows he’s in good rhythm.
