Expert Advice:

A good 87% of fantasy teams have picked Kody Horne at the time of writing this article. The Explorers’ batsman costs 9 credits but his performance is far from that. He scored an unbeaten 119 in a local T20 game but at the same level, he scored less than 300 runs combined in 20 other innings without any 50+ score. He doesn’t have any great record with the ball either as he conceded 57 runs in 4 overs bowled.

Probable Winners:

The batting power of the Fort Charlotte Strikers could help them to start with a win.
