JOH vs EAC, Match 27: Top Five Picks

  1. Faf Du Plessis (JOH): The skipper of the Joburg Super Kings have picked up form in the tournament. He has 277 runs under his belt from 8 matches and also scored a century in the last outing. For this match, Faf is an obvious pick. 
  2. Aiden Markram (EAC): The skipper of the Sunrisers Eastern Cape has been contributing to the team's cause with both the bat and the ball. With his all-round abilities at the peak, Markram is a must-pick for the match. 
  3. Gerald Coetzee (JOH): The young South African pacer has been on song in this tournament. He has been specially effective at the beginning of the innings and his wicket-taking abilities makes him a hot pick for the this match. 
  4. Roelof van der Merwe (EAC): The left-arm spinner has really boosted the bowling attack of the Eastern Cape. Van der Merwe has been slowing down the opponents in the middle overs and picking up wickets. There is no way one can leave him out in the fantasy XI.
