Stephen Naitram chipped in with a blistering half-century against the Leatherbacks and is looking good for some more big knocks. Darren Sammy has joined the team and although he didn’t get to bat, his international experience will come in handy for the side. Talking about international experience, Johnson Charles is another major pick in this fixture.
Alex Antoine is without debate the top choice for captaincy. The all-rounder has accumulated over 300 fantasy points thus far, more than any other player in this fixture and registered a stunning half-century in the last game. Kester Charlermagne has been bowling well in the competition, picking up 6 wickets in the last four fixtures.
Dillan John and Keygan Arnold are household picks for this fixture in your fantasy team. They have been two of the best bowlers in the tournament and they add great value to your team. Also, you can take a chance with Colinus Calender in your XI as well, who chipped in with a few cameos in recent games.
