Analysis

Kusal Perera could be the preferred pick out of the wicketkeepers, in case Proteas wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock isn’t available for the next game. De Kock made himself unavailable for the last game against West Indies, since he refused to take a knee prior to the match. However, he has clarified his stance and made himself available for the upcoming matches of the tournament.

Moving to the batters, Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapksha would be the top picks from Sri Lanka, given their current form, with the former being a dependable captain choice. Besides, Rassie van der Dussen can be picked from the Proteas side. South African all-rounder Swaine Pretorious and Aiden Markram have had a few good outings and can fetch some fantasy points for one’s team.

Lastly, Anrich Nortje, Keshav Maharaj and Chamika Karunaratne could be picked from the bowling department, taking a look at their ongoing form in the ongoing World Cup.
