Fantasy Tips of The Day
As many as 16 sixes were launched when these two sides met a few days ago.
Given the even bounce on offer, runs have come thick and fast at Brisbane.
Sam Billings has collected 269 runs at 43, including the highest score of 83 against Perth in 7 innings. At Brisbane this season, he has registered scores of 79 and 28.
Josh Inglis has also kept fantasy players pleased. Besides inflicting 11 dismissals with the gloves, he leads the run charts (246 at 35) for Perth.
After a poor start, Ashton Turner has turned around his fortunes by adding 194 runs at 65, including 2 fifties. Against Brisbane, his last 3 knocks read 28, 18*, and 23*.
Despite maintaining an impressive strike rate of 150, Colin Munro is the leading run-scorer (278 at 35) for Brisbane. He has also hit the most sixes (15) for the tournament.
When Perth beat Brisbane at the Optus Stadium a few nights ago, Cameron Bancroft was the captain of the Ultimate Team for his blazing 76 off 48 (7 fours and 2 sixes).
Michael Neser has regularly been amongst the wickets (10) for his side in this edition. For his consistency, he has been a part of the Ultimate Team on 4 of 7 occasions.
It has been a productive time for Mark Steketee at the Gabba this season. He has bagged 6 wickets, including a four-for in 2 games. Overall, he has taken 10 wickets in this edition.
Much of Perth’s success should be attributed to the wicket-taking abilities of Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff. Between them, they have picked 28 wickets. While Behrendorff dismissed Sam Billings a few days ago, Tye finished with a three-wicket haul.
Only once in 7 outings has Mitchell Swepson gone wicketless against Perth. He has taken 10 wickets, including 4 two-fors against the former champions.
