Barbados Royals – Fantasy Notes

  • Cricinfo reported that Quinton de Kock and David Miller – 2 of the key Royals batters will not be available for the rest of the tournament as they will join the South African national camp for the series against India.
  • Keep Kyle Mayers in your team but give him the armband only when he bats in the 2nd innings as he has been struggling batting first in these conditions, where it is not easy to score runs.
  • Just like Mayers, Corbin Bosch has also struggled batting first. He remains an option when he bats in the second innings.
  • Rahkeem Cornwall will open the batting and will more than likely bowl his full quota of overs against a Patriots batting with 3 left-handers in their top 5.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman remains the key bowler for the Royals against a Patriots team with 3 left-handers in their top 5. An excellent option when bowling first in particular, when the pitch is drier and that makes it trickier for the batters against quality spin early on in the innings.
  • Back Azam Khan to come good as a differential in this match as his fantasy potential increases in the absence of the two South Africans in the middle order. He also has a good record against spin bowling type and also wrist spin in particular.

St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – Fantasy Notes

  • Dwaine Pretorius will not play this match as he has been called up for national duties by South Africa.
  • As we noted in the last St Kitts preview, Evin Lewis has been playing with attacking intent and has been getting good starts. It seems like it is only a matter of time before he plays a big inning. Pick him in your team especially when he is batting 2nd.
  • Dewald Brevis is still inexperienced against spin in these conditions but he could be a good punt pick in this match as he bats at number 3 for the Patriots and as an attacking batter, his potential to score points will always be there. Add to that, his leg-spin could also be used in this match.
  • In the absence of Pretorius, Duan Jansen could bat higher and bowl his quota of 4 overs unless the Patriots decide to bring in Jaggesar as an off-spin option to counter Mayers.
  • Load up your team with spinners on this Guyana pitch which favours spin and in a day game – Rashid Khan, Akila Dananjaya and Jaden Carmichael should put the batters under pressure and pick up a few wickets among themselves.
  • Support spin options: Dewald Brevis (leg-spin), Jon-Russ Jaggesar (if he plays, off-spin)
