Fantasy Angles and Notes

  • We should use a 7-to-4 combination in our fantasy teams in games like this, where New Zealand are expected to trounce Scotland. Consider having at least four of the Kiwi bowlers if they bowl first.
  • We’ll build our fantasy teams around a core of six players: Martin Guptill, Dane Cleaver, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Richie Berrington, and Michael Leask, who will all be in the majority of our lineups.
  • Michael Leask is only on more than a quarter of fantasy teams, making him a good differential in our lineups. He is a reliable all-rounder who bats at No.6 and has 11 wickets at this venue.
  • Why captain Daryl Mitchell in GL? This assumes the opening batters fail. While the scenario is unlikely, if they indeed fail, Mitchell, who is only selected in 18% of teams, can help you seal most big leagues. He comes into this game after scoring 48 runs at a strike rate of 150 against Ireland in the third T20I. Another interesting trend we noticed at the venue in T20Is was that the No.5 batter against Scotland scored 66, 60, 28, 49, and 53 in the previous five games.
  • Why is Glenn Phillips not among the key players? This is because, if Scotland bat first, we would ideally like five New Zealand bowlers and two batters, including the keeper Dane Cleaver. We would then like to see the Kiwi Top 3 complete the chase against a relatively weaker team like Scotland. However, we don’t want to risk leaving Phillips out of our small leagues.
  • Scotland have lost 32 wickets to spin in 13 T20Is since 2021. From a fantasy standpoint, this puts a spotlight on Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner and necessitates the inclusion of both in our lineups, at least in small and mega leagues.
  • Martin Guptill and Lockie Ferguson are the top captained and vice captained players for this match. Both players perform well in the first match of a T20I series, adding to their form, convincing us that these are not only the two safest but also the best captaincy choices. When these two teams last met in the World Cup, Guptill batted first and scored 93 runs.
