A good batting track is on offer with both sides looking to chase here. While the ground dimensions favour the bowlers, batsmen have done well to score more than 100 and should be the case for this game as well
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Nicholas Pooran began his T10 League 2019 campaign with a bang as he took Northern Warriors home against Delhi Bulls on Tuesday. He looks good for more runs against Bangla Tigers as he is picked alongside Andre Fletcher, who had been equally destructive for the Tigers this season.
Batsmen: Only limited options are available in this department with Rilee Rossouw and Lendl Simmons standing out. Rossouw has scored 119 runs so far and ranks in the top five for most runs while Simmons will love to tee off in what is a must-win game for the Warriors. As for the third and final pick, one of Darren Sammy or Colin Ingram would suffice for this game.
Allrounders: Andre Russell has tailed off after a brilliant start to the tournament. Although he has been picking wickets consistently, it is his batting that needs to deliver the goods on Wednesday. Along with the Jamaican, the likes of David Wiese and Robbie Frylinck are also viable options. Chris Green is a very underrated bowler in this format with his wicket-taking ability being priceless. He should earn some fantasy points if picked for this game.
Bowlers: While Liam Plunkett warranties a place in the fantasy side for this game, the duo of Chris Wood and Rayad Emrit are also worth-while options. Another useful pick would be Kevin Koththigoda, who had a few wickets to his name already. Qais Ahmed, who won the Man Of The Match award on Tuesday, is also a great alternative for Liam Plunkett.
Captain: Andre Russell's skill set combined with his batting position makes him perfect captaincy material for a format such as T10 cricket. He is the first choice for captaincy while the likes of Nicholas Pooran and Colin Ingram could also be picked as one of the multiplier options for this game.
