Is your Dream11 fantasy team all set for this opening fixture of Lanka Premier League (LPL 2020)?
The cricket is back in the island and what better than the inaugural Lanka Premier League (LPL 2020) to begin the cricketing action. 5 top class teams will battle it out at Hambantota over November and December for the trophy.
The league (LPL 2020) gets underway on the 26th of November with the game between the Colombo Kings and the Kandy Tuskers. Both the teams are well equipped with quality players that are all set to smoke up the league with their domination. However, there are a few players that you can afford to put under the axe for this opening fixture to maintain the credits.
LPL 2020: Here are the 3 players that you can avoid in your Dream11 fantasy team for CK vs KT match-
1) Rahmanullah Gurbaz (9 credits):
The Afghani wicketkeeper-batsman is one of the most dynamic, but inconsistent at the same time in the shortest format. He has been scoring at a rapid pace but rarely goes on to score big. With his batting position still not confirmed, you can afford to drop him from your fantasy team to manage credits.
2) Irfan Pathan (9 credits):
The Indian bowling star who once took the cricketing world to the storm with his swing bowling has said goodbye to Indian cricket and is available for all foreign leagues now. He used to be highly lethal during his prime days but seems to have lost that touch post-retirement.
One cannot guarantee whether he will be able to regain the same pace and accuracy once again in this league, it is advisable to skip him from the fantasy team considering his high credits. He won’t be getting many opportunities with the bat either due to the presence of batting firepowers in the team.
3) Daniel Bell Drummond (9 credits):
The English batter has fantastic English County stats but is yet to lick the foreign league’s success. Another issue for will be Hambantota wicket is opposite to what he is used to playing on English soil(pace pitches). The major trouble for the explosive opener is his inconsistency to score runs at the top.
His concerns against spin still continue and the opponent team is filled with adequate spinners, who will look to bounce on his weakness to hunt him early on. He can bat well for an innings or two but doesn’t hold on to his form for long and that is what includes him in this infamous list.
