Yahoo Daily Fantasy Pick Your Captain: Gayle, Kohli, Amla and others
The ICC World Cup 2019 is in top gear now with every team having played at least two matches. From the fantasy perspective, it was still fine if you didn't get your captaincy picks right during the first week as not only you, but even the players also were trying to lay the base to launch themselves for going big in the rest of the tournament. However, everyone has a clear idea about the forms of most of the players right now and so it becomes pretty important to get your captaincy picks right in every game. So, let us now have a look at some of those options for the upcoming matches this week.
With scores of 13 and 6, the 36-year old South African opener hasn't had the best of starts to the tournament. However, things might change when South Africa take on the Windies at Southampton on Monday. Amla has an astonishing average of 81.76 against the Windies with over 1000 runs to his name. Moreover, he has 5 hundreds to his name against them and this might just be the outing he needs to get things rolling.
Shakib Al Hasan
The Bangladeshi all-rounder has been in superb form so far in the tournament. Batting at No.3, he is averaging 86.6 in three matches with a total of 260 runs, which includes one century and two fifties. Moreover, he has picked up three wickets as well and has been providing the all-round value you need in your fantasy team. Bangladesh will be up against Sri Lanka on Tuesday and you can expect him to do well both with bat and ball.
Warner has already scored two fifties in the tournament so far and you can expect him to notch up another one as Australia take on Pakistan at Taunton on Wednesday. He has over 500 runs against Pakistan in 12 ODIs, at an excellent average of 47.41, and has two centuries against them as well. Though he has got two fifties in the tournament thus far, he hasn't kicked on to get a big one. So he would be eager to get a big score to his name this time around and that translates to good fantasy points for your side.
The Indian skipper turned out to be a good pick as a captain for your fantasy team in the last match against Australia as he played an excellent hand of 82 off just 77 deliveries. And you can trust him to deliver once again as India take on New Zealand this week on Thursday. New Zealand is a side he fancies as summed up by his five centuries and a tally of 1302 runs against them at an excellent average of 68.52.
The 38-year old Windies opener has gotten off to a decent start in the tournament with scores of 50 and 21 to his name. And if you are waiting for that big knock from him, it is not far away as the Windies take on England at Southampton on Friday. He has an outstanding average of 51.48 against England and was even seen in excellent form in their home series against England—424 runs at an average of 106— back in January as well. So don't be surprised if you see him smashing the English bowlers and depositing the ball to all parts of the ground on Friday.
