Fantasy Tips of the Day
JJ Smuts has made it to the Ultimate Team in 3 of 6 games, and all 3 came at St George’s Park. To make matters more interesting, he is the highest run-scorer (897 runs) and second-highest wicket-taker (29) at the venue.
Eastern Cape have two bowlers who have great numbers at the venue: Roelof van der Merwe, who has the best bowling figures (6 for 20) and Sisanda Magala, who is the highest run-scorer.
In the previous games between these teams, Bjorn Fortuin ( 3 for 20) and Jordan Hermann (43 off 39) were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team.
Aiden Markram and David Miller’s Ultimate Team percentage is 85 this season, missing out only once in 7 outings.
In 7 games, Jason Roy has crossed 30 runs only once.
In the last 3 games at the venue, of the 41 wickets that fell, 19 belonged to pacers and 20 to spinners. Meanwhile, the highest score is 210 for 2 and the lowest is 86 all out. The pitch is, in the literal sense of the word, balanced.
