Fandromeda Fantasy League
Transfer out: Kushal Mendis, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuvraj Singh
Transfer in: Kane Williamson, Mushfiqur Rahim, Corey Anderson
Now, I don’t have any player in my team for this game.
With 4 matches remaining and 10 transfers in the bag(6+4 free), I would look to invest in games that have the potential to get me a windfall of points. In the last 4 games, 2 are high profile ones and two are between teams that don’t really have big superstars in them. So, try and go in with more of superstars for these crunch games.
Kane Williamson walks into my side. He has been New Zealand’s lone warrior in the CT and will be looking to replicate the same today as well. Get him in!
Mushfiqur Rahim has looked in good touch this Champion Trophy and in all the games leading up to it as well. He scored four 40+ scores in the six games leading up to the Champions Trophy and was amongst the runs in the first game against England as well. Tamim Iqbal too seems like a good bet, as he has been in great form this tournament, but I would leave him out, one because of the law of averages and because he’ll be up against the potent opening bowling partnership of Boult and Southee.
If you want to go for a third transfer for this game, I would suggest you go in with one from Tamim Iqbal and Martin Guptill, depending on whoever bats first(as the Cardiff wicket played slower in the second innings). On the basis of the opposition, Martin Guptill seems the better choice, as he’ll be up against a slightly less potent Bangladesh attack, but I would still give Tamim a fair chance and would thus go in with whoever bats first.
If you want to go in with a bowling powerplayer, I would suggest that you get in Corey Anderson for this game, who would bowl at least 8 overs and would then go onto bat a bit as well. You would have to leave out both Tamim and Guptill in that case.
Batting Powerplayer: Kane Williamson
