Grand League punts

> Skipper Aiden Markram loves batting at the Wanderers. In 4 innings at the venue, he averages 82.25 while striking at nearly 122. His last 2 scores at the venue read 93 & 175. WIth Markram looking in fine touch in the T20Is, taking a punt on him as skipper for this game might not be a bad call at all. Needless to say, he could also fetch you points with his off-spin as well.
