Fantasy Board – Wicketkeepers:
Part of Saurashtra’s First Class and List A teams, Snell Patel started the tournament with a match-winning 81-run knock but failed to make an impact in the following games. Despite his twin failures, he is still the best wicketkeeping option available today.
Performances in this tournament: 81(50), 1(3), 11(13)
Chirag Sisodiya, Snell Patel’s opening partner at Halar Heroes, followed the 49-ball 71 in the first game with a couple of single-digit scores. Things aren’t looking good for him today as well, considering he is up against a quality Gohilwad Gladiators bowling attack.
The 28-year-old managed only 56 runs in the last edition of the SPL.
Performances in this tournament: 71(49), 3(7), 7(9)
Fantasy Board – Batters:
Navneet Vora is a bowler who is miscategorised in the batting section. The off-spinner has picked up a wicket in all the 3 games so far, and since there aren’t many reliable batting picks, having an extra bowler won’t be a bad choice.
Performances in this tournament: 1/31 (4), 1/22 (3), 1/28 (4)
Starting the tournament with a single-digit score and a duck, Vishvaraj Jadeja finally found some form in the last game, registering a 30+ score. The 23-year-old is a safe choice for this fixture.
Performances in this tournament: 4(9), 0(2), 32(25)
Fantasy Board – Allrounders:
Prerak Mankad is one of Saurashtra’s best players in all three formats of the game, and his fantasy potential is unmatched as he bats at one down in this league and bowls a couple of overs. C/VC alert!
Performances in this tournament: 82(54) & 1/34 (4) and 1(4) & 0/15 (2), 40(29) & 1/13 (3)
In addition to being one of the league’s best bowlers, Unadkat bats at No.5 for his team. This makes him one of the best C/VC options in this match.
Performances in this tournament: 12(11) & 2/22 (4), 17(17) & 0/17 (4), 37(27) & 2/17 (4)
As we had predicted, Kuldeep Raval failed to make an impact in the last game after picking up a five-for in the second. Gohilwad Gladiators used 8 bowlers in the third game, with Raval getting only 2 overs to bowl. Leaving the 36-year-old out can work wonders, as there are a couple of underrated picks in this section.
Performances in this tournament: DNB & 0/13 (2), 20*(12) & 4/14 (4), DNB & 0/10 (1)
The former Saurashtra captain only has 3 runs to his name in 3 games, but has delivered with the ball picking up 3 wickets. A player of his calibre usually doesn’t fail four times in a row, so expect some runs from the left-hander in this game. Differential Alert!
Performances in this tournament: 2(6) & 1/24 (3), 0(2) & DNB, 1(3) & 2/18 (3)
Fantasy Board – Bowlers:
After picking up a 3-for in his first two games, Shaurya Sanandia went wicketless in the third. The 35-year-old has 28 wickets for Saurashtra in 16 games in his T20 career at a strike rate of 12. Expect the right-arm pacer to be in the wickets column again as he is the first choice death bowler of Gohilwad Gladiators.
Performances in this tournament: 0/16 (3), 3/19 (3), 3/19 (4)
Saurashtra’s spin bowling star in all three formats of the game, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja has 5 wickets at an economy rate of just 5.6 in the tournament. Jadeja is also handy with the bat, as witnessed by his 16-ball 21 in the first game. C/VC Alert!
Performances in this tournament: DNB & 3/18 (4), 21(16) & 0/14 (4), 13(10) & 2/36 (4)
The leg spinner has five wickets in three games. Yadav also managed a 30+ score in the second match, showing his ability with the bat. If he’s defending a target, the 30-year-old becomes an excellent C/VC option in mega leagues.
Performances in this tournament: DNB & 2/35 (4), 31(27) & 1/27 (4), DNB & 2/24 (4)
