Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Differential Pick

Captain Options

Mitchell Marsh was in the form of his life versus the West Indies, as he struck three fifties and claimed eight wickets for the Aussies. Marsh will take plenty of confidence from his recent performances and could make another significant impact here.

With Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das missing out, the onus will be on Bangladesh’s star man Shakib al Hasan to deliver. The premium all rounder has scored 1604 runs from 79 T20Is, which includes nine fifties as well. Other than that, Shakib is just five more wickets away from 100.

Differential Pick

Mitchell Starc is on the back of some scintillating performances, as the fast bowler scalped 11 wickets from the three ODIs versus the West Indies. Starc is known for his quick pace and bounce, and could once again prove to be lethal versus Bangladesh.
