Expert Advice:

Chamari Atapattu’s career can be defined by her performances in this tour. She has produced a big knock once in a while and followed it with low scores. Spending 9.5 credits on her won’t be the right idea when there are better options. Ellyse Perry hasn’t found the right way with the ball. She might not get a chance to bat long due to an in-form top three. Not making her captain/vice-captain will be a gamble which can work but putting out from fantasy team could end up being a costly move.

Probable Winners:

Australia Women are likely to seal the series with their 2nd straight big win.
