Captain – Paul Stirling
Do not write off Paul Stirling. He can ignite the slump with ease. It’s risky to make him our captain, but if he’s clicked, then we will be finishing high. Here are 10 things you should understand before choosing your fantasy team captain.
Vice-captain – C Campher
The seam-bowling all-rounder has a lot to offer. He used to bat with a higher strike rate and bowl his full quota of four overs.
Wicketkeeper – M Cross
He is an aggressive opening batter who can be so prolific for his side. M Cross walks in as one drop and gets to play the early middle overs which is a bit safer point to consider for us.
Batters – G Dockrell, R Berrington, G Munsey, P Stirling
G Dockrell seems good in touch. He can make use of his well-suited conditions.
R Berrington is a big power hitter who is one of the very few batters in this second-tier team to make centuries.
G Munsey was the man of the match in the last game. One shouldn’t miss this bloke at this point where he sees the cricket ball as a football.
(G Munsey seems to be suffering from an injury; if he isn’t able to play, go with H Tector. Tector is an extraordinary talent., and can make the best out of his techniques.)
All-rounders – M Leask, C Campher
M Leask was extraordinary with the ball but couldn’t prove it with the bat. The win against the Windies would have taken his confidence to a higher level.
Bowlers – M Watt, B Wheel, J Little, M Adair
M Watt and B Wheel stole the show for Scotland with the new ball. Especially M Watt in the middle overs has been really special for Scotland. Hope the vibe continues.
J Little was mind-blowing without giving any room for the batters. This works big time for the new ball bowlers.
M Adair’s death over bowling fetched him two wickets at the end. But still, he looked promising with the flow and areas he bowled.
Other captain options: R Berrington for his innings-building knack and J Little for his tight line.
