Fantasy Power Picks for the Match

His opening partner Alex Hales too has been on fire. By accumulating 199 runs, including 2 fifties in 5 innings, he is the third-highest leading run-getter. He averages an impressive 40.
133 runs. 3 wickets. 4 catches. Glenn Maxwell has lived up to his billing of a true all-rounder in the 4 games that he has been a part of. Simply put, he has been a huge asset in fantasy leagues.
Smart Fantasy Picks for the Match
After picking consecutive three-wicket hauls to kick start the tournament, Daniel Sams has gone wicketless in his last three games. However, he did make amends with the bat by scoring a 25-ball 55 against Birmingham a few days ago.
Barring one match, where he scored 13, Samit Patel hasn’t got any opportunities with the bat in this edition. That said, he has rewarded the fantasy players by consistently picking wickets (6 in 5 games).
Kieron Pollard is yet to bowl in this league, but he has let his bat alone do the talking. His scores read 19*, 34*, and 26*. Talk about game-changers down the order!
Eoin Morgan might have retired from international cricket, but he has shown no signs of rust in this competition. He has scores of 47, 37, 1, and 5*. His unconventional strokes are tailor-made for the 100 league.
Tabraiz Shamsi might have picked only 3 wickets in 4 games, but his gutsy style of bowling, coupled with the required urgency in the format, always keeps him in the hunt.
Much of London’s success this season should be attributed to the wicket-taking abilities of Jordan Thompson and Mason Crane. While Thompson has bagged 9 wickets, including the best figures of 4 for 21, Crane has 6 to his credit, including the best figures of 2 for 21.
As far as wicketkeeper selection for this contest goes, Adam Rossington pips Tom Kohler-Cadmore. While Rossington has added 88 runs and inflicted 4 dismissals with the gloves, Cadmore has collected only 55 runs to go with 3 dismissals.
Fantasy Tip Of The Day
Picking the in-form Trent openers, the match-winning all-rounders from London, and their leading bowlers for this round of fantasy cricket will be advantageous. Remember that both sides are on top and therefore, it is important to create a balanced team.
