Sri Lanka A Tour of India 2019 – 2nd ODI Fantasy Preview

Fantastic for batting and some assistance to the spinners is how we described this pitch at Belgaum where India A is hosting Sri Lanka A for a series of 5 ODIs, shortly after they whitewashed the visitors 2-0 in the Test series. Get your eyes away from the ongoing ICC 2019 World Cup and try to find some easy winnings in fantasy cricket in the 2nd ODI between IND-A and SL-A.

Whenever you play fantasy cricket for ‘A’ matches, remember to select those first who have international experience. In the 1st ODI between these two, India A smashed 317 in 42 overs (DL method) and won by 48 runs, thanks to a scintillating 187* by CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad.

  • Niroshan Dickwella scored 206 runs in 5 innings on this tour.
  • 12, 9, 12, 6, 20, 13 – Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 6 innings prior to the 187*.
  • Shehan Jayasuriya scored 108(120)* in the 1st ODI.

India A

We told you to pick Ruturaj Gaikwad for the 1st ODI, who won his first IPL contract this year. We also spoke to him about it and you can read about that here. His technique is sublime and he, together with Shubman Gill at the top of the order could be a nightmare for the Sri Lanka A bowlers. Gill only managed 5 in the 1st ODI but I’d pick both of them for the 2nd ODI and you can also make Gill your captain again.

With the ball, pack your team with spinners, especially Mayank Markande, who didn’t get more than 3 matches in IPL 2019 but he managed 15 scalps in IPL 2018. He also bagged 2 wickets in the 1st ODI, while Deepak Hooda and Shivam Dubey also picked one each. Dubey also made his debut in IPL 2019 and he has amazing all-round abilities which makes me pick him in my fantasy team for the 2nd ODI.

Sri Lanka A

We mentioned about how Lahiru Kumara would be the bowler to watch out for. He picked up 6 wickets in the IND-A Tests and 9 wickets in 2 Tests against New Zealand earlier this year. He narrowly missed the CWC 2019 squad and should be part of your team here, especially after he picked 3 scalps in the 1st ODI. The next threat with the ball could be mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya.

Dananjaya only got one wicket in the Tests and was hit for 0/51 in 6 overs in the 1st ODI and since he hasn’t got much returns on this tour so far, he won’t be picked by many. He’s your x-factor player for the 2nd ODI. The wicket-keeper for your Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy team can come from Sri Lanka, in captain Niroshan Dickwella, also someone who missed the SL senior squad to the CWC.
