PLAYER PICKS:

CAPTAINS:

  • Ryan Rickelton (MICT | WK) – 7.5 Cr

Consistent at the top-order, Rickelton’s impressive form with 185 runs makes him a solid choice for captaincy.

  • Marco Jansen (SUNE | ALL) – 7 Cr

An all-rounder, Jansen’s versatility with seven runs and one wicket in the tournament makes him a valuable vice-captaincy option.

TOP:

  • Rassie van der Dussen (MICT | BAT) – 8.5 Cr

A key top-order batsman, van der Dussen’s contribution of 128 runs stabilizes the team’s batting performance.

  • Tom Abell (SUNE | BAT) – 8.5 Cr

A vital top-order batter, Abell’s impressive 65 runs provides a solid foundation for Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

BUDGET:

  • Liam Livingstone (MICT | ALL) – 9 Cr

A valuable all-rounder, Livingstone’s dual skills with 37 runs and two wickets make him a wise budget pick.

  • Daniel Worrall (SUNE | BOWL) – 9 Cr

A right-arm fast bowler, Worrall’s effective two-wicket haul showcases his worth as a wicket-taking option.

AVOID HAVING THESE PLAYERS IN YOUR FANTASY SPORTS TEAM:

  • Dewald Brevis (MICT | BAT) – 8 Cr

Unimpressive in recent matches, Brevis may not be a reliable choice in your fantasy team.
