Fantasy Tips of The Day
Laura Wolvaardt’s 137 of 169 runs in the tournament came in Cape Town. Interestingly, in the only knockout game (2020 WT20 semi-final) that she played against Australia, she bludgeoned 41* off 27 in a high-pressure chase.
Beth Mooney’s one of two fifties came at the venue. In terms of fantasy, she starred in the Best11 in the last three games.
Shabnim Ismail strikes at 13.6 against Australia – the best against any opposition. She has generated bonus points for a three-wicket haul twice in six appearances.
The best figures (4 for 29) at the venue belong to Ayabonga Khaka. She does the bulk of the damage at the death.
Marizanne Kapp is the only South African to feature in the Best11 in all games of the tournament. In the only match she went wicketless, she made amends with a fine knock of 27* off 13.
Megan Schutt is yet to fail. Be it with the new or old ball, she has been amongst wickets (9) and in Best11 in all the encounters.
In the group stage game between these teams, Tahlia McGrath (57 off 33) and Tazmin Brits (45 off 36) were the captain and vice-captain of the Best11 respectively.
Alyssa Healy is a big-match player. Her average in the T20 World Cup reads 29 compared to her overall average of 25. In this edition, she averages 57.
Spinners accounted for 33% of the wickets in the last three games at the venue. Meanwhile, all three fifties belonged to openers.
