Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots don’t have too many superstar players, but they have got quite a few utility players who have played in various T20 leagues across the globe and know their roles really well.
Here are our fantasy cricket tips to form a fantasy XI for game 2 of CPL 2020 –
In fantasy cricket, you are allowed to pick more than one wicket-keeper these days and we would advise you to go with Johnson Charles and Shai Hope.
Both of them are expected to open the innings for Barbados Tridents and they are two completely different kinds of players, but both very effective. While Charles goes after the bowling from ball one, Hope plays the anchor role.
Chris Lynn is the kind of batsman who, once he finds his rhythm upfront, can absolutely wreak havoc and he can fetch a lot of points for you if it’s his day. So, he is a obvious pick at the top of the order.
Along with Lynn, our fantasy cricket tips would suggest you to pick Ben Dunk as well. The big, bulky Aussie left-hander is a muscular player who can even mistime the ball for sixes. He can turn the game upside down within a space of few balls.
Our third pick as a batsman would be Jonathan Carter who is a really crafty player in the middle order and can really accumulate a lot of runs by rotating the strike and finding odd boundaries against quality spinners.
Dunk and Carter will also be the captain and the vice-captain respectively.
Sohail Tanvir is a really versatile player. He can swing the new ball early on and then he has got the variations to come back later and bowl in the death as well. And if required, he can also use the long handle with the bat.
Mitchell Santner will find the pitch to his liking at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy as it will allow him to bowl back of length. He is the kind of bowler who enjoys if the ball sticks into the surface a little bit.
Sheldon Cottrell and Jason Holder can swing the new ball and hence, they are always in the game in the powerplay overs.
Holder, in addition to what he can do with the ball, can also do a fair bit of damage with the bat in top 7.
Rashid Khan and Ish Sodhi, being the wrist spinners, are always the wicket-taking options given the fact that both of them are accurate and are capable of turning the ball both ways.
