ITA vs IM Dream11 team tips for ICC T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier A final
Top Tip: Best batter
In-form Isle of Man batter George Burrows will be the player to watch out for in the ICC T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier A final. The 22-year-old middle-order batter has scored 190 runs in four matches at a staggering average of 95 and a strike rate of 146.15. Burrows has already accrued 292 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick for the final at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Isle of Man left-arm pacer Chris Langford has been the joint leading wicket-taker in the tournament so far. He has picked eight wickets in four matches at an economy of 5.06. Having already accumulated 295 fantasy points, picking Langford in any fantasy team is a no-brainer.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among the all-rounders, Italy’s Harry Manenti will be a key player in the final. The star all-rounder has claimed six wickets in four matches at an average of 13 and an economy of 5.20. More than capable with willow in hand, Manenti has accumulated 255 fantasy points and will be a smart pick at just 8.5 credits.
Isle of Man’s Carl Hartman will be the preferred choice over Manpreet Singh of Italy for the wicket-keeper spot. Apart from fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Hartman has also scored 51 runs in the middle-order. At just 8.5 credits, Hartman could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
