Table-toppers Cinnamon Pacers (CP) will aim to take revenge against Nutmeg Warriors (NW) in their reverse fixture in match 16 of the Spice Isle T10 on Saturday, June 5, at the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada.
CP have registered three victories in four matches and lead the table with six points. They have got the necessary firepower to maintain their winning run and will look to extend their three-match unbeaten streak. After a defeat in their opening match, the Pacers have upped their performance.
NW, on the other hand, started the tournament with a win but things have gone downhill since with three consecutive losses. Interestingly, their only win so far has come against the Pacers and they will be eyeing a repeat of the same.
CP vs NW Dream11 predictions
Considering the current form of both teams, it is CP who are clear favourites. Though they lost against NW in their opening match, CP put the defeat behind them and bounced back strongly to win the next three matches. Since NW haven’t been able to get their act together following the convincing 10-wicket win over Saturday’s opposition, CP have an edge and momentum going into the upcoming fixture.
CP vs NW best players to pick for Spice Isle T10 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
22-year old Alick Athanaze is the player to watch out for in the CP camp. He is in tremendous form with scores of 66, 36, 78* and 48 so far, making him the highest run-getter in the tournament. Such performances definitely make him a hot pick in any fantasy team.
NW opener Seandell Regis is a smart fantasy pick considering the form he is in. He gives explosive starts at the top and scores at an impressive strike rate too. Regis scored a 19-ball 29 against the Generals and also made an unbeaten 21-ball 36 the last time these two sides met.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Kenroy Peters is weaving magic with the ball in his hand for CP. He took 3/23 off his two overs against the Strikers and followed it up with another two-wicket haul versus the Generals. He is in good touch and a must-have in fantasy sides.
Haston Jackson is a fine pick with the ball for NW. He plays a key role in the side’s bowling unit and took 2/7 against the Strikers which is his best of the season.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Andre Fletcher is the best all-rounder option in this matchup. His ability to score big runs and strike at important moments makes him a great option. In his previous match against CP, he hammered an unbeaten 35-ball 79 and took 4/12 to set up a 10-wicket win for NW.
CP wicket-keeper Javed Hazzard is a good option in this category. He is clinical behind the stumps and is selected by almost 75 percent of fantasy players.
