Fantasy Tips of the Day
In the last 3 games at the venue, the top order generated the most fantasy points.
Bowlers from the team batting second produced more points than the team batting first.
Batting in the second innings becomes easier. The chasing teams have attained the target at an average run rate of 9.8.
Rassie van der Dussen’s numbers at Cape Town make a good reading. He has scored 472 runs at an average of 47 and a strike rate of 129 in 14 outings.
Besides adding 605 runs in 23 games at the venue, Quinton de Kock has 14 dismissals to his name.
Prenelan Subrayen is the only player from both teams to feature in the Ultimate Team in the last 5 T20 games.
Given the pitch favours batters, picking more all-rounders is likely to keep fantasy players in the hunt. In fact, both teams have plenty in their armoury.
