Fantasy Cricket Tips T10 League 2018: Bengal Tigers vs Northern Warriors
The second edition of the T10 league began yesterday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. The first match went on as expected but it was the second match which drew all the attention to the league as the Rajputs' Mohammed Shahzad smashed his way to an unbeaten 74 off just 16 deliveries, which included 8 sixes.
He set the league up in perfect fashion and is his knock will be the benchmark for other cricketers to follow all through the league.
Three matches take place today, with the first one between the Bengal Tigers and Northern Warriors. Both the squads boast of some big names, especially from the West Indies. Players like Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, to name a few, are specialist T20 players. Apart from them, Englishmen Jason Roy and Sam Billings too are a part of the Northern Warriors' squad. However, there is no confirmation about Roy's participation yet.

Choices for captain:
With both of them being all-rounders and with the ability they have to take the game away from the opposition, they should be the likely candidates to make captain. We can expect both of them to bowl 2 overs each and have a say with the bat as well.
