BPH vs OVI Risky Captaincy Choices:
Imran Tahir can take wickets regularly. Though he has picked up only 2 wickets so far, the veteran South African spinner is likely to find his rhythm soon.
Adam Milne is a good bowler and he has been on song in this tournament, having picked up 7 wickets at an average of under 10. However, being a bowler, making him the captain can be a bit risky.
Player you should avoid:
Reece Topley has not been at his best during this tournament so far. He has managed to pick only two wickets in four matches. It is better to avoid him.
