Top Picks

Johnson Charles and Darren Sammy are two of the most recognizable names in international cricket and just their history is enough to hand them a place in your fantasy team. Sabinus Emmanuel has been sensational this season for the Repos Stars and is turning out to be one for the players of the season. His 164-run tally is the best among his teammates. His opening partner Shervin Charles has been brilliant with the bat and ball too.

Tonius Simon has picked up over 250 points in the fantasy league and has been contributing significantly with the bat and ball. Alex Antoine has been in similar touch for the South Castries, scoring 116 runs and also picking five wickets. Kester Charlermagne has picked up 9 wickets already and only intends to add more to his list.

Sadrack Descartes joined the party late, but has done well in the last couple of games, earning close to a 100 fantasy points. Daniel Baptiste and Xavier Gabriel are the top picks among the South Castries bowlers, having done a fairly decent job until now.
