West Indies vs South Africa, 4th T20I: Fantasy Preview

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

After a thumping win in the first T20I, West Indies have failed to chase down South Africa’s total in the last two encounters. The third of which resulted in a nail-biting finish with the visitors coming on top by one run. 

Quinton de Kock came out all guns blazing with the bat and Anrich Nortje and Tabraiz Shamsi choked the hosts with the ball. Andre Russell tried his best but did fail to overcome a string of stop-starts up top.

Ground Details and Team Combination

The venue continues to be the National Cricket Stadium in St. George’s Grenada. The average run-rate at this venue in four T20Is since 2019 has been 8.9 which is among the highest in the Caribbean islands. Pacers have taken 68% of the wickets in these games as compared to 32% by spinners. But, this is also a similar proportion of the overs that the two varieties of bowlers have bowled here. 

In the series so far, three of the top-four wicket-takers have been pacers. 

Suggested Team

 

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.

Captain Suggestion

With a solid knock in the last game, Quinton de Kock is also the leading run-getter in the series so far. He averages a healthy 45 while batting at a brisk rate of 142.1 in the series. Batting at the top of the order gives him an advantage of maximising his potential. 

X-Factors

Back in the Windies colours, Dwayne Bravo has enjoyed the series with the ball. He has five wickets to his name, which is the second-most after Obed McCoy (7). With the bat, Evin Lewis was sublime in the first game but has not carried on after getting a start in the next two. He can surely create a big difference if he is not in your fantasy side.

Here are the top-10 picks as per criclytics projected points- If you are short on credits, here are the top value for money picks from among those who are likely to feature in the XI-

Value for money picks Player updates 

The hosts left Chris Gayle out after an indifferent performance in the second T20I. So keep a lookout if he is in the XI. Criclytics projects him to get ~34 points. Akeal Hosein has not had a game so far, but his past records suggest that he can fetch big points (~72.5) if he gets a chance.

Player Match-ups 

George Linde has played only three deliveries from Obed McCoy so far but has already lost his wicket to him twice. You can check out more in-depth projections and key match-ups for this match here.
