CTB vs NK New Zealand ODD Match Top Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Todd Astle has been consistently performing with both bat and ball, although he could not do much with the bat against Northern Districts but took 2 wickets with the ball, his all-round ability is an asset for any fantasy manager. Brett Randell, yet again, was amongst the wicket-takers, he took 2 wickets in this game after taking a fifer against Auckland and has taken a total of 9 wickets in three games of the tournament. He will be a threat for the Canterbury batting lineup, he can be a good multiplier option in small leagues for his consistency.
Chad Bowes looked solid with his defence against the new ball and played spin equally well, he scored 110 runs with the help of 10 boundaries and 1 six. He will be a valuable addition in your fantasy team. Jeet Raval is a spinning all-round option and he opens the innings and bowls few overs of spin in the middle overs. He scored solid looking 45 runs before being dismissed by Will Williams, and he can be productive with both bat and ball and can even be used as a captaincy option in the grand leagues.
