Fantasy Tips of The Day
Seamers from both sides have been regularly amongst the wickets, owing to which they have generated maximum fantasy points.
In comparison to Sydney’s top order, Perth’s top three batters have been very erratic.
Much of Perth’s success this season has to be attributed to the wicket-taking ability of Jye Richardson and Andrew Tye. They have bagged 13 wickets each this season and have been a part of the Ultimate Team on multiple occasions.
Likewise, Jason Behrendorff has equally kept fantasy players thrilled by not going wicketless even once. Overall, he has taken 10 wickets, including the best figures of 3 for 32 in 6 games.
Besides inflicting 9 dismissals with the gloves, Josh Inglis has already generated 20.5 bonus points only through boundary-hitting. He is the leading six-hitter (11) for the edition.
Despite his attacking instinct (146 strike rate), Alex Hales has accumulated 245 runs at 41, including 3 half-centuries in 7 matches. Given his impact, his selection percentage is yet to drop below 65 in fantasy leagues.
His opening partner, Matthew Gilkes didn’t particularly start well but has managed to generate a bunch of bonus fantasy points for registering scores of 33, 37, and 56* in his last 3 outings.
Oliver Davies and Brendan Doggett significantly contributed towards the victory of Sydney over Hobart in the last game. While Davies smashed 65 off 32 (10 boundaries), Doggett finished with a four-for. For their match-winning efforts, both were a part of the Ultimate Team.
