In the Men’s 100 League, Kieron Pollard scored at least a boundary in each knock. His scores read 9, 25*, 26*, 34*, and 19*. He generated bonus points for a strike rate of over 160.
The combination of Jason Holder and Obed McCoy is rewarding in every sense of the word. Both bowl in the powerplay and at the death, and are equipped with an array of variations at their disposal.
With the addition of Tim Seifert at the top, Sunil Narine is likely to bat down the order as a floater. He, nonetheless, keeps fantasy players in the hunt, irrespective of his batting position. Moreover, his economical display and ability to bowl in all situations make him a player to watch out for.
Smart Fantasy Picks
Tion Webster may not go big right from the word go but has a knack for batting according to the situation. He took 45 deliveries to score 58 runs, which included six fours and three sixes. An average of 26 in T20s is impressive, especially in the space of fantasy sports.
Quinton de Kock has not been hitting the ball as well as he usually does, but three scores in the twenties and one in the thirties in the last five games is a good sign. Drafting him in fantasy teams also has an advantage of gaining additional points with his glove work.
Akeal Hossain’s great control over the ball fetched him figures of 4 for 13, of which two wickets came in the powerplay. He darts the ball into the stumps, making it difficult for the batters to counter his slow left-arm spin.
Rahkeem Cornwall’s off-spin services haven’t been used yet, but he has been making headlines with the bat. He has registered scores of 39 off 25 and 32 off 17. In the Sixty League, he had hit 83 runs at a strike rate of 231.
Fantasy Power Picks
A few overs at the death with the ball and the freedom to hoick with the bat makes Andre Russell a source of joy for fantasy players. In the recently concluded Sixty League, he registered the highest score of 72 off 28 and the best figures of 2 for 11. Phew.
Kyle Mayers took the T20 world by storm with a knock of 36 off 23 and figures of 4 for 4. Before this game, he had blasted 76 off 43. To further highlight his recent form, he registered a stunning hundred in an ODI against New Zealand a few weeks ago.
Nicholas Pooran, at No. 3 in a star-studded batting line-up, will play a crucial role. In the last Caribbean T20 League, he smashed 25 sixes and 12 fours in the overall 263 runs he collected. More importantly, his strike rate reads a whopping 163.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
An overwhelming contest for the world of fantasy cricket, with T20 stars packed into one game. Given the pitch and conditions, it would be profitable to have one of the big-hitters and all-rounders as your power players.
