Analysis

The all-round performance shown by Proteas in the 1st T20I opens many options for players to be picked in one’s fantasy team. Wicketkeeper batsman Quinton De Kock and Aiden Markram would be the top picks among batsmen and can act as good captain choices as well. Additionally last match’s key player Tabraiz Shamsi is a must have in one’s fantasy team.

From the Irish side, all-rounders Simi Singh and Mark Adair are inarguably the best picks, and can act as good vice-captain choices in fantasy. Adding on Andy Balbirnie and Joshua Little can also fetch some good points contributing in their respective departments.
