What are VIP vs ABD Fantasy Tips?

  • Alex Hales is a certain captaincy pick, given his form in the Big Bash League. The English batter has amassed over 11000 runs in T20 cricket, and was the top scorer in the league last season.
  • Sunil Narine can contribute with both, bat and ball. The West Indian all rounder has over 500 wickets in the shortest format of the game.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga is another player who can amass points in both departments of the game. The Sri Lankan all rounder is a good captaincy pick.
