Fantasy Tips of the Day
Tabraiz Shamsi has exploited these conditions the most. In 13 games, he has fetched 19 wickets with an economy of 7 RPO.
Jos Buttler and Prenelan Subrayen are the only players from both teams to feature in the Ultimate Team in all their last 5 games.
Hardus Viljoen may not provide plenty of points, but his dual skills have been pushing him in the Ultimate Team. In his last 5 matches, he has taken 5 wickets and scored 2 20-plus scores. Given the average scores, his dual ability will be in demand.
The dip in Jason Holder’s selection percentage is for a reason. Despite bowling the most overs (10) for his team, his strike rate of 30 reads the worst for a bowler who has taken 2 or more wickets.
In the last 3 matches, spinners accounted for 52% of the wickets. Scoring runs was so difficult that there were only 4 30-plus scores.
Barring Evan Jones, no bowler from Paarl has been able to make an impact in fantasy leagues. On the other hand, while Reece Topley has been effective with the new and old ball, Prenelan Subrayen has been the wrecker-in-chief in the middle overs for Durban.
