Fantasy Tips of The Day
Courtesy of 11 wickets, including a hat-trick of three-fors, Bjorn Fortuin is the only player from Paarl to feature in the Ultimate Team on all 4 occasions.
Jos Buttler is the leading run-scorer for his side at Paarl in this edition. He has added 144 runs at 48, including the highest score of 68.
Anrich Nortje is the only bowler from Pretoria to have made the Ultimate Team for the last 3 games, owing to which his selection percentage hasn’t dropped below 75.
Jason Roy and Rilee Rossouw’s misery with the bat continues. While Roy has managed only 65 runs in his last 5 innings, Rossouw has merely collected 36 runs in 4 outings.
It has been a struggle to clear the boundaries at regular intervals at Paarl. Only 20 sixes have been hit in the last 4 games.
In the last 3 matches at the venue, not a single seamer has taken a three-wicket haul. The spinners (Fortuin and Evan Jones) have ruled the roost in this aspect.
