Dan Christian was brilliant with both bat and ball in the 2018 T20 Blast but turned out to be a support act during the 2019 edition. He scored only 183 runs and took eight wickets across the 12 matches last year. Hence, it won’t be advisable to use a spot in the fantasy team over him if he is expected to bat low down the order again.

Nottinghamshire is expected to start the tournament with a narrow win against the Yorkshire.
