You can’t think of winning in fantasy and leave Dre Russ out of your team. A renowned power hitter who can change the complexion of the game within a span of two overs is a mandatory pick in any fantasy team.
Why should he be in your team?
Andre Russell, the carribean superstar has a bamboozling strike rate of 159 in BPL and 170 in general in any T20 competition. Also, he is not some Shahid Afridi type player whose stay on the wicket lasts just one over or sometimes even less. BPL batting average of 30 shows this guy can bat and bat properly.
In the ongoing BPL, he is captaining Rajshahi Royals and so far he has picked up 1 wicket with ball in 2 games. He is yet to get his chance with bat as the top order has done the bulk of the scoring. The swashbuckling is an obvious pick in anyone’s fantasy team.
Some might tell you that the former English allrounder is just a pale shadow of himself but make no mistake, Ravi Bopara in BPL is an absolute superstar if you’re looking for a term to describe his performance.
What makes him so special?
The 35 years old right arm medium paced seasoned campaigner has a more than impressive T20 record all over the world. Bopara also plays the same team Russell plays for. Playing for Rajshahi Royals, he has already taken 3 wickets in his first 2 games at a strike rate of 12 and average of 8. His overall BPL record both with bat and ball is extremely impressive.
Bopara has taken 35 wickets at an average of 17 and strike rate of 15.7, a record which would make front line bowlers proud. Not just with ball, Bopara has come good with the bat too. Not very explosive, but his batting average of 24 makes him a handy two dimensional pick in your fantasy team.
Another veteran all rounder Robbie Frylink could be your dark horse in the competition. Not that his records or recent performance don’t speak of him as a player but since he is not a very popular commodity, picking him in your side can be immensely beneficial.
Why Frylink ?
Playing for Khulna Tigers in BPL 2019, Robbie has started well with the figures of 4-0-21-1 with ball. The slow and low pitches of Banglasesh does suit his bowling style. The reason behind rating him so highly is his overall T20 numbers where he has picked up 134 wickets in 129 T20 games. This bowling all rounder possesses some hard hitting abilities with bat too which is evident in his strike rate of 152 and his recent explosive performances in Abu Dhabi T10 League.
The Sri Lankan batting all rounder doesn’t guarantee you consistency in his performances but what he guarantees for sure is once he gets going, there is no stopping him and you in jumping on top of charts.
What is Shanaka all about ?
Shanaka, who once hit 16 sixes in a domestic match played in Sri Lanka is known for using long handles and that’s what makes him an x-factor in anyone’s side. In the first game of BPL 2019 against Rangpur Riders, he played a blinder of an inning to take his side 173 in 20 overs after being 124 in 18 overs. In his inning of 75* which came off only 31 balls, he went berserk in the final 2 overs as he scored 46 runs in those 12 balls against the likes of Mustafizur and Junaid Khan.
The advantage with picking Shanaka is since he is the captain, he can sometimes promote himself up the order too, giving himself the best possible chance to score as much as possible.
The wily off spinner from Afghanistan who is the captain of Rangpur Rangers in the ongoing season of BPL is the safest pick in your fantasy side. He can obviously bat, can anchor an inning and can also go bonkers with the bat depending on the situation but his main strength relies in his bowling. He is as cunning as a fox when he has the white ball in his right hand.
Nabi started this tournament rather moderately as per his standards but he still was fairly good with the ball having the figures of 1-14 in 3 overs. What makes Nabi so special is his ability to read a batsman’s mind and then having more than one option to counter any plan batsman makes.
Talking from the fantasy’s point of view, Nabi can guarantee you a decent number of points in every single game as he will be contributing in at least 2 of the 3 departments. He is a proper 3D player and must have all rounder in your side.
Notable mention : Nasir Hossain
He bats at 4 and can bowl at least 2 overs if not 4 making him a good option to have while selecting your team in fantasy.
