Players to Watch out For
We know what Sunil Narine is capable of in this format. Opening the batting, he scored 33 off 12 balls in the last game. Moreover, his mystery spin-bowling often draws mistakes from the batters.
Ravi Rampaul was slightly expensive in the last game, but his two-wicket haul, including the scalp of Kieron Pollard, proved to be decisive for his team.
Jon-Russ Jaggesar isn’t a big turner of the ball but tends to pick wickets early on in the powerplay. His 2 for 12 in two overs set up the win for Cocrico against Steelpan.
In his previous appearance, Jason Mohammed blasted a quickfire 55 off 21 balls, which included 6 sixes. For his blistering knock, he generated 59 fantasy cricket points.
Leonardo Julien is expected to open the batting and keep wickets for Soca. This dual role often helps fantasy players with handy points.
Brandon Ramdial too will keep wickets and open the batting. He scored 16 in the last game.
Joshua James bats in the middle-order and also bowls his full quota of two overs.
Philton Williams conceded 23 runs in his only over but ended up picking two important wickets against Steelpan.
Soca have won both their games this season and will be confident about achieving a hattrick of wins. On the other hand, Cocrico lost their opening encounter but bounced back in their last match.
