(Note: Players with 9 credits or less can only be chosen as the 12th man. This feature will only come into play if one of 11 players of your team is not the part of the playing XI.)
Benninton Stapleton will be a useful addition to the fantasy team as he costs only 8 credits. He covers up for an option from the bowlers’ category and helps in saving credits for costly players in other categories. Stapleton has claimed 12 wickets across 12 innings he bowled in the local T20s and is also a good hitter as he smashes one six per innings at an average.
Sand Pond Breakers are expected to have an edge over Grenadines Drives in this game.
