Fantasy Tips of the Day
George Linde has great numbers not only for the season but also at the venue. In 23 T20s at Cape Town, he has scored 226 runs at 28 and taken 25 wickets with an economy of 7 RPO.
Dewald Brevis’ scores at the venue read 70*, 0, and 42. In his defence, Kyle Mayers bowled a searing yorker to dismiss him for a duck. He, otherwise, has been a delight to watch.
Aiden Markram has featured in the Ultimate Team in all three games of the season, generating fantasy points with both bat and ball.
In the bowling category, Sisanda Magala and Ottniel Baartman have the Ultimate Team percentage of 100. Picking bowlers from the Eastern Cape has been a straightforward affair in fantasy leagues.
Although Cape Town is studded with star bowlers, the bulk of the wickets have come from Olly Stone. While Rashid Khan has gone wicketless twice, Kagiso Rabada and Jofra Archer continue to be rotated.
In the last 3 games, an average of 3 wickets fell in the second innings compared to 8 wickets in the first.
