Fantasy Tips of The Day
Faf du Plessis and Reeza Hendricks love batting at Johannesburg. While du Plessis has collected 668 runs at 48, including 2 hundreds and 3 fifties, Hendricks has accumulated 789 runs at 44, including a century and 6 fifties.
With 14 wickets, including the best figures 6 for 12, Roelof van der Merwe is the only player from Eastern Cape to feature in the Ultimate Team for the fifth consecutive time.
Aiden Markram’s selection percentage for the tournament hasn’t dropped below 87. His last 2 scores at The Wanderers read 54 and 51.
When these teams met earlier in the competition, Gerald Coetzee (4 for 24) was Johannesburg’s power player.
In his last 6 innings, Donavon Ferreira has been dismissed for a single-digit figure on 5 occasions.
As many as 6 three-fors have been bagged by the bowlers at the venue in the last 3 games.
Already 39 sixes have been hammered at The Wanderers in this edition. Given the high altitude, we can expect a lot more.
