Matches played this season: 4
1st innings average score: 172
2nd innings average score: 157
Type: Excellent for batting. Pacers with variations excel at the death.
Probable Playing XI for Saint Lucia & Guyana
Probable XI for Saint Lucia: Johnson Charles, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Faf du Plessis (c), Mark Deyal, Ackeem Auguste, Roston Chase, Tim David, Roshon Primus, David Wiese, Alzarri Joseph, Scott Kuggeleijn
Probable XI for Guyana: Paul Stirling, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Keemo Paul, Gudakesh Motie, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi
In his last 10 T20 games, Faf du Plessis has scored two ducks, five single-digit scores, two thirties, and a fifty, meaning his success percentage is 30%.
With a breathtaking knock of 36 off 17 in the first game and the figures of 2 for 42 in the second, Romario Shepherd has been providing fantasy points one way or the other. His overall numbers, however, make a great reading: 493 runs at 26 and 68 wickets at 23 in 58 T20s.
Tim David, down the order, does not get enough deliveries to make a big impact but enough to keep fantasy players in the hunt. His last two scores read 20 off 15 and 40 off 23. In no time, he changes the complexion of the game.
Smart Fantays Picks
Gundakesh Motie has been generating bonus fantasy points for his economy of under 6 RPO. He chokes the batters with his accurate slow left-arm spin, bowling in both powerplay and middle overs. His best figures this season read 2 for 10.
On the other hand, Tabraiz Shamsi bowls probing lengths, enticing the batters into playing false strokes. His figures read 1 for 24 and 1 for 13.
Scott Kuggeleijn has taken six wickets in four games, the second-most for Saint Lucia. He does the bulk of the damage in the death overs.
Although his overall strike rate reads 119, Chandrapaul Hemraj provides steady starts and hence averages 23, making him a safe pick in fantasy leagues. He scored 43 off 38 against Saint Kitts earlier this week.
Fantasy Power Picks
Shimron Hetmyer has played two contrasting innings: a responsible knock of 39 off 45 on a slow pitch amidst early fall of wickets and an aggressive display of batting that saw him fetch 46 runs in a mere 21 balls. Whatever result it may have yielded for Guyana, but fantasy players have been happy picking Hetmyer.
Alzarri Joseph has been a power player of the Ultimate Team on My11Circle in two of four games. With 10 wickets at an average of 11, he is the highest wicket-taker of the season.
Johnson Charles is the only half-centurion for Saint Lucia in four games. In the game against Barbados, he played another useful innings of 29 off 25 at the top. In addition, he has provided handy points for three catches.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
Top-order batters, be it in the first or second innings, have been dominating at the venue this season. Pacers, who bowl at the death, have been taking more wickets than the others.
