If you want to put your money on a wicket-keeper with an X-factor, then there is no better player other than S Handirisi from the Tuskers’ side.
Both Craig Ervine and Brain Chari have notable contributions for their side, Tuskers so far in this tournament. Going into the money, these players will surely be hot-favourites in this category.
T Tsiga and I Kaia have some quality runs under their belt in this season and they have both done well for Mountaineers. Picking both these players can be worth your money.
Don’t even think about looking beyond MT’s Sean Williams in this category, as the cool and calm player could be the ultimate match-winner for his side in the final. You can also pick MOU’s, R Kaia.
T Chatara and William Masakadza of Mountaineers have both experience and form running for them currently, so you should include them your side definitely. Donald Tiripano is another worthy enough pick. To go with them, you can also choose Chris Mpofu for his experience in your side.
