Fantasy Tip of the Day
While Sydney have been depending on their bowlers, Adelaide’s all-rounders have been rescuing them. Having more players from Adelaide is likely to keep fantasy players in the game.
Deandra Dottin, Sophie Ecclestone, and Ashleigh Gardner have appeared in the Ultimate Team in all their last 5 games. The trio has been providing points with both bat and ball game after game.
Between them, Amanda Wellington and Megan Schutt have managed as many as 48 wickets. While Amanda outfoxes the batters with her leg-breaks in the middle overs, Megan has done the bulk of the damage with the new ball.
In the batting department, Ellyse Perry (375 runs) and Laura Wolvaardt (388 runs) have been in top form throughout the league. Perry, however, has more points to her name, courtesy 6 wickets and 14 catches.
In the previous game between these teams, Erin Burns ended up being the captain of the Ultimate Team. She scored 71 runs, generating bonus points for a strike rate of 187 and smashing 10 boundaries. Overall, she has added 294 runs at a healthy average of 37.
By her standards, Suzie Bates’ performance has dipped a bit of late. Nonetheless, her stats for the season make a terrific reading: 310 runs and 10 catches. Her experience of playing at big stages will come in handy in the all-important final.
Jemma Barsby is new to the scene, and hence do not get fooled by her selection percentage. She has been collecting points consistently without anyone noticing. The ambidextrous bowler has gone wicketless only twice in her last 10 outings. Above all, she provides handy points for her reasonable economy rate.
Alyssa Healy is hands down the best pick in the wicketkeeper category. She is the only centurion of the season. Overall, she has collected 329 runs and pouched 10 catches.
