Fantasy value from the pitch report

  • Try and pick up the impactful batters from both teams. Going with six players who can bat will be the better option on this track. 
  • The wicket is expected to slow down with the progress of the match. So, death bowlers from the team defending the target could be good choices. 

USA vs CAN Fantasy Cricket Tips

If USA Bat First

  • The team batting first will have an advantage on this wicket. So, if the USA get to bat first, keep at least three of their top four batters. 
  • Harmeet Singh could be crucial in this scenario. Keep him on the team if the USA is defending the target. 

If Canada Bat First

  • Navneet Dhaliwal and Nicholas Kirton will be important from the side if Canada bat first in the match. 
  • In the bowling department, Saad Bin Zafar and Dillon Heyliger will be important picks. 

USA vs CAN Winner Prediction

The United States will have the home advantage. Also, given the domination of US in the head-to-head stats, they are the favourites to win the match. 

USA vs CAN Top Player Picks

Steven Taylor (USA)

  • The opening batter and one of the most experienced campaigners of the side will be crucial for the team. Taylor is one of the pillars of the US batting giving them solid starts in most games. Taylor is one of the must-picks for this game.

Saurabh Netravalkar (USA)

  • The left-arm medium-pace bowlers is one of the biggest assets for the US team. Saurabh Netravalkar could be a big threat with the new ball picking up wickets and giving you valuable fantasy points. 

Harmeet Singh (USA)

  • The left-arm orthodox bowler is one of the mainstays for the US bowling in the middle-overs. Harmeet Singh will be very crucial if the hosts are defending a target in the match. Harmeet can also be the damage control batter for them if the top order fails to click. So, keeping Harmeet Singh in the fantasy teams might give you points in both innings of the game. 

Nicholas Kirton (CAN)

  • Canada will depend heavily in Nicholas Kirton during their batting. Kirton is one of the best, if not 'the best' batter in the side and he could be that one must-pick from the team. 

USA vs CAN Differential Picks

Corey Anderson (USA)

  • The former New Zealand international needs no introduction. A power-hitter and an efficient bowler, Corey Anderson could be the decisive pick on his day. However, inconsistency is a concern with him and that is the risk of backing him blindly for this game. 

Saad Bin Zafar (CAN)

  • The Canadian skipper can cause trouble to the US batters, especially if they are bowling second. Zafar could be one of the rewarding picks from the Canadian side. 

USA vs CAN Fantasy Expert Advice

Try to keep at least three USA bowlers in your team. Given the form of the players and the expected nature of the wicket a 1-3-4-3 or a 1-4-3-3 combination could be ideal for the match.
