Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers -Top Fantasy Picks
Glenn Maxwell: The Stars captain must be part of your fantasy XI of the match. Maxwell played a fine knock in the last match and is again expected to be the dangerman for the Scorchers.
Nathan Coulter-Nile: The fast bowler is coming on the back of a 4 wicket haul in the last match and will be keen to again pick wickets. The wicket at UTAS will suit Coulter-Nile, hence he should surely feature in your fantasy team.
Colin Munro: He may have missed out in the last match but there’s no denying the class of Munro in T20 cricket. At the top order, he can be devastating and play a big knock for his side.
