NMG vs DUR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

  • JJ Smuts is currently topping the batting charts for Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in MSL 2019. In 3 innings played so far, the skipper has amassed 105 runs at an average and strike rate of 52.50 and 147.88 respectively. In fact, the previous outing against Cape Town Blitz witnessed Smuts scoring 51-ball 73 with 8-fours and 2-sixes and thus a similar exhibition from his end could be anticipated in the coming duel.
  • Ben Dunk has been quite consistent in MSL 2019 with 92 runs in 3 innings while maintaining an average and strike rate of 46.00 and 148.38 respectively.
  • With 8 wickets in 4 innings at an average of 14.12, Junior Dala will remain a definite pick from the Bay Giants for the coming contest. The left-arm pacer has been making the most of his swing potency and could be backed to tear through the opposition if the conditions assist.
  • Imran Tahir’s spin prowess can’t be forgotten when formulating a fantasy XI for the coming contest between Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Durban Heat. The leggie has garnered economical figures in MSL 2019 with 6 wickets in 4 innings at an average and an economy of 14.16 and 6.07 respectively. As a matter of fact, the previous outing versus Cape Town Blitz witnessed the 40-year-old scalp figures of 4-0-26-2 which was the most economical from both units combined.

Durban Heat

  • In the batting department, Wihaan Lubbe has been the top-performer in the ongoing T20s with 83 runs in 2 innings at a mind-boggling average of 193.02.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo is another fine prospect who shouldn’t be missed out from the fantasy XI lineup for the coming contest. His all-round prowess could come of great help to the Heat in what seems to be a pivotal game for the Dane Vilas-captained side in MSL 2019.
  • Pacer Kyle Abbott with his perfect line and length could assist the Heat in getting the early breakthroughs in the coming contest.

Captain & Vice-Captain Picks

JJ Smuts would be an ideal pick for the skipper’s spot in the fantasy XI. His consistent performances have been one of the prime contributors to Bay Giants’ victories in the ongoing edition. If not Smuts, then one could vouch in for Ben Dunks considering he has been second in command in terms of most runs for the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in MSL 2019.

The likes of Imran Tahir and Andile Phehukwayo would be ideal selections for the vice-captain’s spot. While the former’s exorbitant T20 experience attributes for his addition in NMG vs DUR Dream11 lineup, the latter’s is on account of his all-round potency which could reap benefits from a fantasy perspective.
