MRS vs BLS best players
Top tip: Best batsmen
Mon Repos Stars' Christian Charlery was brilliant in his team's last match against GICB. Charlery's 21-ball-31-runs saw his fantasy points surge to 81 after three matches. The in-form batsman can be a pick from the MRS side.
Though Alvin Lafeuille is yet to find his form in the tournament so far, his performances last season were a significant boost for Leatherbacks' campaign. Though Lafeuille has scored only eight runs in two matches so far, he has contributed 45 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Hazel Charlery continues to lead the fantasy points for MRS ahead of this fixture as well. While the bowler has managed just one wicket in the tournament so far he has also scored 58 runs in two matches, taking his fantasy points tally to 127 - the highest amongst bowlers from both teams.
For the Leatherbacks, Stuart Calderon has emerged as a lethal bowling option. He has taken three wickets in two matches, conceding 29 runs and fetching 115 points already. He is a must-have for any fantasy team owner.
Top tip: Best all-rounder, wicketkeeper
It is in the all-rounder’s department that the Leatherbacks really dominate the roster from both sides. In captain Shervon Joseph, BLS have a player who has been in great touch with the bat and the ball. Apart from scoring 59 runs in three matches, Joseph has also scalped four wickets, garnering 245 points so far.
Quaine Henry of the Leatherbacks has been quite handy in terms of fantasy points from behind the stumps. Having scored 13 runs and taken two wickets, apart from his duty as a gloveman, Henry has 104 points so far.
