The Caribbean Premier League 2020, is the first big T20 league to resume cricketing action, as the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. West Indies played a key role in agreeing to tour England to resume test match cricket, and have taken the bold step in getting T20 cricket to resume in their backyard too. The Caribbean Premier League commences on 19th of August and runs until 10th of September, which comprises of 31 matches. 

This event also provides an opportunity for the sports lover to resume playing fantasy cricket in T20 format, where the fortune changes quite unpredictably. Here is a pre-tournament primer that will help you prepare for your best picks in the tournament.


It does not matter how a batsman scores his runs in T20, as long as he scores. Fantasy points are calculated based on number of runs a batsman scores. The type of batsmen who do well in Fantasy points are the accumulators of runs. There is no positive bonus for a Strike rate.

The type of bowlers who do well in Fantasy points are the strike bowlers who pick wickets. It’s an added bonus if you have a bowler who manages to stifle the flow of runs. With this background in mind, let’s have a look at some basic batting numbers from this year’s squads (numbers from the last 2 seasons)

Given the importance accorded to batting resource consumed in terms of run scored, here are the following list of batsmen categorized by scoring ability.

  • The A+ List (Balls Per Dismissal > 30, Average >30)
  • The A List  (Balls Per Dismissal 23<>30 , Average > 30)
  • The B list   (Balls Per Dismissal <21.6, Average <30)
  • The C List   (Balls Per Dismissal <20, Average <25)

The A+ List

The A List


The B list


The C List

This list includes all-rounders, lower-order batsmen and a few underperforming top-order batsmen. Unless some of these batsmen also bowl, the points you gain from their batting alone is low, except for some borderline cases like Dwayne Bravo, Dominic Drakes.

High Profile Names in this list

Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russel, Najibullah Zadran, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Lynn

Some skilled players who can bowl and contribute with some hitting are 

Alzarri Joseph, Imran Tahir, Sohail Tanvir, Rayad Emrit, Cornwall
