Match Winner

The DFR match-winner is a guaranteed stud who might cost you an arm and a leg, but is going to score well on any given night.

Ravi Jedeja IND ($14,560 Draftstars) ($6,000 Moneyball)

Arguably no player in the 2019 World Cup has more potential production than the champion off spinner Ravi Jadeja. In fact, it’s a slight on Jadeja these days to pigeonhole him as just an off-spinner. The all-rounder will likely bat at No.7 for India in this tournament and will no doubt bowl his allotted 10 overs every match.

Not only is Jadeja one of the most accomplished spinners in the world, having claimed 174 ODI wickets at a tidy economy rate of just over 4rpo over his career,  he is also lethal with the bat. Jadeja averages 29.92 including 10 fifties in his 101 ODI innings and will be absolutely vital in the middle-lower order for India in this tournament. Jadeja is always in the game with bat and ball as well as being arguably the best fielder on the Indian team.

Night Watchman

The night-watchmen will be a great point of difference in your team and plugging him somewhere in the middle order could be the difference between winning or losing.

Rassie van der Dussen SA ($12,340 Draftstars) ($5,400 Moneyball)

One of the break out performance of the early stages of the World Cup has no doubt been South African middle order batsman Rassie van der Dussen. He boasts two admireable scores in both of the South Arican losses, notching up 50 off 61 balls against England in the tournament opener before compiling 41 off 38 balls in the loss to Bangladesh.

It’s taken some time to crack into the South African international outfit for van der Dussen but with the departure of key players such as A.B. de Villiers, his spot looks cemented now. Has played just 10 innings in ODI colours for South Africa and averages a ridiculous 74.00 with the bat including five fifties and a high score of 93.

Fine Leg to Fine Leg

Anyone who’s played a game of grade cricket before knows that only the duds go from fine leg to fine leg. Avoid these guys like the plague.

J.P. Duminy SA ($12,600 Draftstars) ($6,400 Moneyball)

Throughout his career that has constantly seen him in and out of the South African team depending on the availability of preferred batsmen, we still have massive querries over the enigma that is J.P. Duminy. Duminy started the World Cup with a disappointing innings in the loss to England, scoring just eight runs before being dismissed by Moeen Ali. Duminy bounced back in Game 2 with 45 off just 37 balls in the loss to Bangadesh.

Duminy’s record against India is worrying. He averages a healthy 37.22 in 196 total ODI matches but against India that average drops significantally to just under 29. He has made just one 50 in his last 12 innings against India in ODI cricket, having been dismissed by eight different bowlers in those 12 games.
