Speak of Thunder and you hear of Jos Buttler this season. The English import has already scored 268 runs at a SR of 137.43 covering the batting failures of the hosts. Having him in the fantasy sides has definitely given returns. Same is the case with al-rounder Daniel Sams (135 runs, nine wickets).
If you are looking for a left-field selection, then look at Callum Ferguson (142 runs). With him picking up form, the Thunder look a different unit. Even Fawad Ahmed (seven wickets) is giving good returns.

Brisbane Heat Preview
The heat have picked their first win of the season, but need to keep the momentum. Chris Lynn (179 runs, SR 122.60) remains the biggest pick to be in your fantasy side. Among their bowlers, Mujeeb Ur Rahman (ER 5.56) remains a very good pick to be in your team!

Fantasy Players to Watch
Chris Lynn – how can you not have him in your team? Lynn hasn’t yet fired, the way he does, but having him is always a big pay cheque. Wait for the sixes to turn up!
Daniel Sams has made an instant impact on Thunder this season. The all-rounder has been consistent with his big strikes. He is a vital player for the Thunder and his all-round skills is a must for your fantasy side.
Jos Buttler should be a constant pick in your side, if he’s not there already. Coming at the top of the order, he packs a punch and gets to face a lot of deliveries. Have him in your side for his boundaries at least!
