West Indies vs South Africa, 2nd T20I : Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the second T20I between West Indies and South Africa

An innings that lay in the periphery of brutality, Evin Lewis gave another reminder of his quality as a T20 batsman in the first game of the five-match series in Grenada. His 71 off 35 balls coupled with Chris Gayle and Andre Russell’s pyrotechnics resulted in a complete annihilation of the South African unit and that will be fresh in everyone’s mind as both sides will lock horns with each other 24 hours later at the same venue.

HEAD TO HEAD

Overall: Matches – 11| WI – 5 wins | SA – 6 wins | NR – 0

Last five matches: WI – 4 wins | SA –1 win

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team.  

GROUND AND TEAM COMBINATION

The National Cricket Stadium in Grenada has only hosted two T20Is so far, with 733 runs being scored across four innings. Pacers have accounted for 62.7 % of wickets while spinners have 37.3 % of wickets to their name. With 3.3 wickets in each game, the pacers have been the dominant entity and can fetch good points. 

If you are a right-arm pacer, chances are you will enjoy the conditions more with 36.36 % wickets in two international games. In T20s, 51.85 % of wickets have gone to them, which means a pace-heavy attack is key here.

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

41 years young and running like a wizard with a candlestick in his hands. Chris Gayle is the true epitome of everything unorthodox. In the first T20I, the Jamaican superstar bulldozed the South African line-up to help the Windies to a comprehensive win. He is the owner of all kinds of statistics in the T20 universe and thus you could bet all your money on the Universe Boss to fetch you 2X points.

Our Criclytics player projections predict Gayle could score 20-30 runs in the second T20I

X-FACTORS

Aiden Markram is not necessarily a great T20 batsman but his turnaround is quite a good story. In the last series against Pakistan, Markram struck at 182 with three half-centuries from four games. He had an 85% boundary rate - quite an achievement for a batsman who swears by his pure technique. Even though he didn’t play the first game, Reeza Hendricks’ failure should propel South Africa to use him properly.

Our Criclytics player projections predict Markram could score 34-52 runs in the second T20I

Rassie van der Dussen is not the most attractive T20 batsman out there but he scores runs. Enough of it. And fantasy sports are governed by the dynamics of how much a team can conjure up in due course. With a career T20I average of 45.60, he is sure to fetch fantasy lovers their due course of fun.

Our Criclytics player projections predict van der Dussen could score 24-36 runs in the second T20I

You saw what Evin Lewis did in the opening night’s encounter? Thus it is a no-brainer why you should bet your money on the opener to come good once again. A strike rate of 158.20 tells a story of its own and establishes his T20 credentials further.

Our Criclytics player projections predict Lewis could score 30-44 runs in the second T20I
