CT vs PRE, Match 20: Top Five Picks

  1. George Linde (CT): George Linde has been contributing with both the bat and the ball in this tournament. He is a prime pick for the match. 
  2. Will Jacks (PRE): The English opener has been responsible for some blazing starts of the Capitals in this tournament. He has scored 208 runs in six matches and is looking in good touch and so must be picked for the match. 
  3. Kagiso Rabada (CT): The South African pacer in command have found great rhythm in the tournament. Rabada has picked up seven wickets in the tournament in four matches and is looking very potent with the ball in hand. KG cannot be ignored in the fantasy contests for the match. 
  4. Anrich Nortje (PRE): With 10 wickets in six matches, Nortje has also been very good with the ball. He is looking the most potent of the bowlers from the Pretoria Capitals and hence you cannot miss out on him. 
  5. Eathan Bosch (PRE): Eathan Bosch has been a very good complimentary bowler for Anrich Nortje. His pace has allowed the Capitals to keep pressure from one end while Nortje has pciked up the wickets from the other.
