Top Picks

Isaac Conway has scored 73 runs in two matches so far and he opens the innings which makes him a must-pick in Fantasy team. James Seymour failed in two matches but he opens the batting too for Waratah CC and picked two wickets with the ball. Udara Weerasinghe picked four wickets in the last game and took the tally to six wickets in two One-Day matches. He also bats at five and can hit a long ball.

Ishara Gange scored an unbeaten 28 in the last game and also returned with the figures of 2/30 in his 10 overs with the ball. Sandaradura was always an economical bowler and he backed it up with two wickets in the previous outing. Riley Vernon is also a decent batsman having scored an unbeaten 33 in the last outing.

For the Darwin CC, Jacob Dickman scored 86 in the last game but bagged a duck in the round 1 fixture. But if he continues to open, there is a chance he will score big again. Luke Shelton is the best all-rounder in the team as he has registered scores of 86 and 28 with the bat and has gone on to scalp five wickets too. Willy Andrews scored 54 confident runs in the previous match opening the innings.

Luke Zanchetta has picked three wickets so far and is extremely economical bowler. Connor Hawkins, on the other hand, has five wickets to his name. He has bowled 5 maidens in 19 overs conceding only 36 runs. Tom Briggs is also a decent all-rounder as he bats at three (scored 22 runs in previous game) and picked two wickets so far too.

James Seymour bagged a duck after scoring only 12 runs in the opening game. But he is an exceptional batsman and expect him to score big soon.
