Top tip: Best bowlers
Pascal Nelon of GG was the star with the ball in the last game, picking two wickets. He also took three catches in the match. Above all, his maiden over was the highlight, which gave bonus points to all those fantasy players who picked him in their teams.
Redhead Nicklaus of GG too picked up a wicket and kept his economy rate at four runs per over. He also took two catches in the game and bagged four wickets in the match against NW on June 2.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
All-rounder Ryan John of SS can contribute with both bat and ball. In his last five games, he has earned more than 250 fantasy cricket points. John will bat at No. 5 and can also bowl. Besides scoring runs with the willow, he has also taken three wickets in the tournament so far.
Lendon Lawrence of SS is the best pick in the wicket-keeper category. He opens the batting and has already scored 160 runs in the last five matches, with a highest score of 64. In addition, he has given close to 300 fantasy cricket points so far. Given his form and impact at the top of the innings, it would be foolish to not have him in your fantasy team.
