ESS vs SUS Risky Captaincy Choices:
Sam Cook was the main performer with the ball for Essex and doesn’t concede too many runs. Considering his recent performances, he is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.
Chris Jordan has done well captaining the side in the absence of Luke Wright. In 2 matches, he has picked up 2 wickets and has scored 24 runs. You can take a risk by picking him as your fantasy team skipper.
Player you should avoid:
David Wiese was expensive with the ball, managed to pick only one wicket and scored 11 runs. It’s a big call you need make to not to pick him while making your fantasy teams.
