Top Picks for the Fantasy Team
No matter what the condition is you can’t leave out D’Arcy Short from your fantasy team. He is the leading runs scorer in the current BBL 18-19 season.
James Vince played a gem of an innings in his last match in this very ground against Brisbane Heat that helped Sydney Sixers post a challenging total. He is a good player of spin bowling and should be in your fantasy team.
George Bailey has scored at a strike rate of 164 against spin and since the track will assist the spinners he is a good addition to your fantasy team.
In the pacers category, the medium pacers have been the most successful in this ground. This makes the case for someone like Sean Abbott who is coming of an impressive bowling performance in his last match. He took 3 wickets breaking the backbone of the heat batting lineup.
Riley Meredith is another bowler who has impressed one and all. He has taken 14 wickets so far with an economy rate of 7.8 runs per over.
In the spinners category, both the off-break and left-arm orthodox bowlers have a good record. Therefore Steve O’Keeffe and Clive Rose are hot picks.
Tom Curran is having a great BBL both with bat and the ball. He picked three wickets in his last match at the SCG.
James Faulkner is another all-rounder to watch out for. He has taken wickets every 13 balls in this tournament.
In the wicket keepers category, Matthew Wade is the obvious choice given the amount of success he has had with the bat. He is the second highest run scorer in the current BBL season.
Captain and Vice-Captain
In the captain’s category both Steve O’Keeffe is a good choice given that the left arm orthodox have gained success on this ground. Another alternative option can be D’Arcy Short who is having a great BBL season.
For the vice-captain, James Vince can be a good option. He bats at the top and is a good player of spin bowling. Another alternative can be Tom Curran and James Faulkner. Both should get an opportunity with the bat and are bowling really well.
