Sri Lanka A Tour of India 2019 – 5th ODI Fantasy Preview

4 action-packed and exciting unofficial ODIs have ended, most of which have been dominated by India A. The hosts won the first couple of games pretty easily but the 3rd ODI was won by the visitors Sri Lanka A followed by the 4th ODI being washed out due to rain. India A were experimenting after the 2nd ODI but they will look at playing their strongest team here to make sure they get the 3-1 series victory.

If you take your eyes off the ongoing ICC 2019 World Cup for a day or two, you will see a good chance of raking in profits in other games. The game is being played at the same pitch in Hubli which saw India smash 208/4 in just 22 overs in the 4th ODI. Surely you want some of the top order batsmen in your fantasy team.

  • Sadeera Samarawickrama’s last six innings – 8, 4, 0, 6, 5, 2*.

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad’s three innings this series – 187*, 125*, 84.
  • Shivam Dubey – 34 runs and 5 wickets in this series.

India A

Ruturaj Gaikwad won his first IPL contract earlier this year and we spoke to him about it here. He has undoubtedly been the star of this series so far, with 2 centuries and 84 and a stunning average of 396.00! He opens with Shubman Gill and his form leaves me no other option but making him my captain. As for Gill, he scored a century and had two failures, so leaving him out could be a gamble worth considering as over 90% teams will have him selected.

Instead, pick the #3 batsman Anmolpreet Singh who has 391 runs in 6 innings so far against Sri Lanka A. Don’t look past the top 4 batsmen. I’m a big fan of Sandeep Warrier, who played a couple of games in IPL 2019 and has a 2 wickets in 2 games here so far. Washington Sundar is another value bomb pick, having been used as an opening bowler very often. He picked the only wicket to fall in the rained out 4th ODI.

Sri Lanka A

Sadeera Samarawickrama is easily the worst performing player in the Sri Lanka A side, unable to get into double digit figures since a while now. However, 99% teams will be selecting the popular Niroshan Dickwella or Ishan Kishan as their wicket-keeper picks and here’s your chance to cash in big. It’s a gamble, but one that could pay off.

Another person with international experience is Lakshan Sandakan who I really liked because of his unorthodox action. He was brought in because Akila Dananjaya had only 1 wicket in 3 games and you should pick him in your Dotball (Sign-up and get Rs.51 FREE) fantasy team, along with the player who picked a 5-for in the 3rd ODI, Chamika Karunaratne. Of course, Shehan Jayasuriya has to be the first player your pick from Sri Lanka A, having 2 centuries, a fifty and also bowling in every game.
