Dream11 Top Fantasy Picks All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers

WicketkeeperTim Seifert
BattersJeet Raval, Chad Bowes, Leo Carter
All-roundersMitchell Santner, Cole McConchie, Henry Shipley
BowlersScott Kuggeleijn, Zak Gibson, Matt Henry, Todd Astle

Chad Bowes is a standout player in New Zealand’s domestic cricket. He was instrumental in Canterbury’s journey to the final, scoring 333 runs for the club. This season, a similar level of performance is anticipated of him.

If Canterbury is to reach the distance this time, the captain will have to play a critical role once again. He didn’t do well with the bat or ball last season, but there are no concerns about his abilities, and we expect a stronger performance from him this season.

Because of his versatility, Toss Astle may be an important player for Canterbury. He is a powerful spinner as well as a capable batsman for the club.

Mitchell is an excellent addition to any squad. Santner is one of the strongest spinners in the game in this style. He’s also a useful hitter down in the order.

Scott Kuggeleijn is another excellent talent to have. He is a fantastic all-rounder who is well-suited to this style of the game and has a plethora of variants under his sleeve.

Expert Tips

Tim Seifert has frequently demonstrated his aggressive hitting style while competing in various franchise leagues throughout the world. He’s a risky choice because his consistency is questionable, but the day he fires, you’ll be rewarded handsomely.

Mount Maunganui’s surface is typically suitable for cricket. The ball moves around a little in the first few overs, but the small boundaries and constant bounce make this one of the greatest wickets to bat on.
