It has been a tough time for Kennar Lewis with the bat in this edition. He has managed only 54 runs in 5 matches.
Be it with the bat or ball, Fabien Allen hasn’t lived up to his reputation. He is yet to pick a wicket in 5 games and has added only 56 runs.
In only his first game of the season, Mujeeb Ur Rahman made his presence felt by bagging a three-wicket haul against Trinbago. He picked 7 wickets at 6 RPO in the recently concluded Asia Cup. He does most of the damage in the powerplay.
David Miller has been playing the role of a finisher for Jamaica to a nicety. He has collected 132 runs, including the highest score of 60 and has been dismissed only once in 5 innings.
Without being reckless, Raymon Reifer has made a huge difference in fantasy leagues. 171 runs at 57 in 4 games is a testimony to his consistency.
Staying true to his reputation, Quinton de Kock has been providing solid starts for Barbados. His scores this season read 24, 44, 0, 64* and 15*. With the gloves, he has pouched 4 catches.
Obed McCoy has been regularly getting important breakthroughs for Barbados, especially at the death. He has 9 wickets to his credit in 6 matches.
Barring the last game against St Kitts, Mohammad Amir has struck in every other game this season. He has taken 10 wickets, including the best figures of 3 for 22 in 6 games.
It has been a dream tournament for Kyle Mayers with both bat and ball. Besides being the highest run-getter (285 at 48) and leading six-hitter (18), he has taken 5 wickets in 6 outings.
Fantasy players have immensely benefited through Rovman Powell’s consistent run-making this season. He has accumulated 206 runs at 52, including 2 half-centuries in 6 innings.

The pitch has been helping bowlers with variations. At the same time, the batters who have the ability to play balls on merit have been rewarded.
