Benny Howell has played two crucial knocks (21* and 22) down the order. With the ball, he has provided bonus fantasy points for two three-wicket hauls. He strikes with his medium pace, especially in the middle overs.
Daniel Lawrence’s off-breaks have been difficult to pick of late. He has taken five wickets in the last three games, while also smashing the ball out of the park. He has hammered 109 runs at an average of 22 and a strike rate of 131.
Tom Helm has taken 10 wickets in seven games, going wicketless only once. His best bowling figures read 3 for 11, during which 13 of his 20 deliveries were dots.
Barring the opening game, Eoin Morgan’s selection percentage has not dropped below 50%. He may not have been consistently adding runs, but he has been striking them as brutally as ever. His top scores read 47, 37, and 27.
Will Smeed walks in. He either smashes them or walks back without scratching around.. His last three scores read 15 off 8, 23 off 13, and 31 off 17. If anything, he generates points for strike rate and boundaries.
Henry Brookes has taken six wickets and six catches in six games. He is a safe catcher in the deep, making him a multi-utility player in fantasy sports.
Amongst both teams, Moeen Ali has collected the most fantasy points (174) on My11Circle. He has blasted 161 runs at a strike rate of 161 and taken four wickets in seven games.
The joint-top wicket-takers of the season will lock horns: Kane Richardson vs Jordan Thompson. While Richardson has generated bonus points with his economy, Thompson wowed the fantasy players with a knock of 27 off 19 at No.7.
Adam Rossington has been a delight in the world of fantasy sports. In addition to his consistency, his strike rate reads 186 and he has hit 13 fours and 11 sixes. Behind the wickets, he has taken three catches and inflicted two stumpings.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
Picking batting all-rounders in fantasy teams has been more beneficial in the league. Although bowlers have been amongst the wickets, not many for this game can use the bat to destructive effect, giving points only through one skill.
