Fantasy Tips of the Day
Romaria Shepherd is the only player from both teams to feature in the Ultimate Team in the last 5 T20s.
Aaron Phangiso’s selection percentage will shoot up after last night’s four-wicket haul. To further entice the fantasy players, he has made it to the Ultimate Team in 3 of 4 games this edition.
In the previous contest between these franchises, Leus du Plooy (75* off 40) and Ethan Bosch (3 for 12 and 15 off 17) were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team.
Faf du Plessis’ numbers at the venue are slightly discouraging. In 21 games, he has managed 232 runs at an average of 15, with no fifties to his name.
In his last 5 T20s, Rilee Rossouw has 2 ducks and a top score of 20.
In the last 3 games at the venue, pacers took 28 of 34 wickets and the top 3 batters scored 6 fifties and a hundred.
The pitch is a batting paradise, so much so that, of the 34 wickets that fell, only 6 came in the powerplay.
