Fantasy Tips of the Day
5 off 11 wickets fell in the powerplay in the first game at the venue – all belonged to the pacers. There was a good amount of movement when the ball was new. However, as the pitch hardens, the batters take the centre stage.
JJ Smuts and Sisanda Magala has great all-round numbers at St George’s Park. While Smuts has smashed 867 runs and taken 27 wickets, Magala has collected 341 runs and scalped 29 wickets.
Aiden Markram and James Fuller have appeared in the Ultimate Team in 4 of the last 5 games.
In his last 8 innings, Rassie van der Dussen has registered 5 single-digit scores.
Rashid Khan too has ordinary numbers. In his last 10 games, he has managed only 5 wickets.
The bulk of the fantasy points from Cape Town has come from only 4 players: Rickelton, Roelofsen, Brevis, and Linde. The rest have not found their feet yet. On the other hand, Eastern Cape’s all-rounders have rewarded points by the bucket.
