Fantasy Tip of the Day
Batters from both teams have been collecting the bulk of the fantasy points, while only their death bowlers have kept the fantasy players happy.
Jordan Silk not only is the highest run-scorer (182) for Sydney but also has grabbed the most catches (9). Against Brisbane, he averages 26 in 12 games. For a middle-order batter, these numbers are impressive.
Hayden Kerr has been a fantasy favourite this season for his dual skills. He has scalped 10 wickets, scored 115 runs at a strike rate of 142, and pouched 3 catches. Above all, he has been in the Ultimate Team in his last 5 T20s.
James Vince provided bonus points for a thirty thrice in his last 4 matches. overall hitting 139 runs at 35.
Before hammering 84 off 51 in the previous game, Nathan McSweeney had scored a hundred and 2 fifties in 3 First-Class games and 3 fifties in 3 List A Games. He has been in excellent form across formats.
Colin Munro has been blowing hot and cold, but such has been his approach that he often invites self-destruction. While he has three scores below 15, his top scores read 35, 43, and 98.
Mark Steketee has 9 wickets in 6 games this season, most of which have come at the death. Against Sydney, he has managed 12 wickets, including the best figures of 4 for 33.
Sam Billings and Jimmy Peirson have been doing the bulk of the scoring in the middle overs. They have added 288 runs at 27 between them.
Sean Abbott is yet to go wicketless this season. He has bagged 10 wickets at a strike rate of 13.
