The surface at Queen’s Oval has been a tough place for batting so far in the week and this match is going to be no different. So it’s a no-brainer for fantasy players to pack the team with as many bowling options as possible.
The veteran spinner has been consistent as always. He has chipped in with at least a wicket in every match played so far. His PPM of 55 and MDTA of 1.2 makes him a must-have in every fantasy team.
The Patriots captain has been one of the most consistent performers for the side. He has not only chipped in with wickets but also scored handy runs down the order.
He is usually not known for his consistency but in the tour, he has been among the top performers for the side. Given he operates in crucial phases of an innings there is every chance that he is likely to be among the wickets. In addition, he also scored handy runs down the order.
He is that kind of player who scores back to back big knocks or goes through low scores. Given he had a poor run in the last few games we expect him to be back into form in this encounter. Considering there is no quality spinner in the opposition, this may be his best chance to bounce back.
He may be one of the top players in the format but he is known to be circumspect against spin. This very aspect has come to his shortcoming in the tour given the nature of surfaces being produced in the tour.
