Fantasy Tips of the Day
Melbourne have been heavily relying on Finch and Marsh, while Hobart have been collectively scoring runs.
Pacers get good movement with the new ball. In the 2 games played here this edition, an average of 2 wickets fell in the powerplay.
The spinners, regardless of when they bowl, have not had much help here.
Matthew Wade edges past Sam Harper with the bat. While Wade has 2 fifties and a thirty to his name, Harper has 3 ducks in 5 innings. However, Harper has made amends with 10 catches.
Aaron Finch has exceptional numbers for the game. At the venue, he has the most runs (1,471 runs at 43) in T20s. Against Hobart, he has smashed 517 runs at 40, including 6 fifties.
Ben McDermott and Caleb Jewell’s addition has bolstered Hobart’s top order. The duo scored consecutive fifties, setting up solid foundations for the middle order to exploit. Dermott’s 546 runs, including 2 hundreds and 3 fifties, against Melbourne has further strengthened his case.
Since his return, Shaun Marsh has registered scores of 28, 35, and 32. At the venue, he averages a whopping 42.
Tim David has appeared in the Ultimate Team in 5 of 7 games this season, overall managing 174 runs. To make matters interesting, he rolled his arm over in the last game and provided handy points with a solitary wicket of Adam Hose.
After a remarkable start to the season, Akeal Hosein’s performance has dipped a bit. He has gone wicketless thrice in the last 5 games. However, his ability to churn out vital runs down the order pushes him in the list of top players to watch out for.
With 15 wickets, Thomas Rogers is the second-highest wicket-taker of the season. He has provided bonus points for a three-for and a five-for.
For Hobart, Patrick Dooley has taken the bulk of the wickets. In the bowling category, he has the best fantasy stats. He has appeared in the Ultimate Team in 4 of his last 5 games.
In the T20s between these teams, Riley Meredith is the top wicket-taker (14 wickets in 8 matches). In this season, he has collected 10 wickets in 7 outings.
Kane Richardson may have had an ordinary tournament thus far, but the fact that he has 31 wickets at Docklands Stadium puts him in the reckoning. No other bowler has even 20 wickets at the venue.
