Vitality T20 Blast Fantasy

If you're in the mood for T20 cricket, the good news is that major T20 leagues are going to take place soon. MLC (Major League Cricket) and the Lanka Premier League (LPL) will begin in July. However, if you want to earn fantasy points in cricket tournaments this week, look no further than the Vitality T20 Blast. The oldest T20 cricket league in the world is already underway. The tournament began on May 20 and will conclude on July 15.

Vitality T20 Blast History

To everybody's surprise, this T20 tournament began in 2003, four years before the first T20 World Cup was held. It was initially called the Twenty20 Cup. In 2018, the competition was sponsored by an insurance company called Vitality and hence labelled Vitality T20 Blast. Leicestershire Foxes dominated the initial years of the tournament. They landed two titles and two semi-final finishes in the first four years of the competition. Later, Hampshire Hawks went on a dominant spree, landing five semi-final finishes and two titles between 2010 and 2017. They are also the current defending champions.

Vitality T20 Blast Fantasy Top Picks

Here are some of the best T20 Blast fantasy picks for you:

Nathan Sowter

The 30-year-old Australia-born leg-spinner is in the form of his life. He has picked 96 wickets in 89 games, at an average of 23.8, which are pretty decent stats. However, he has stepped up his game at the Vitality T20 Blast. He took 17 wickets in 8 games, conceding just 6.44 runs per over. He has been one of the bright spots in Durham's campaign so far, where they are placed sixth among nine teams.

Sam Hain

Sam or Samuel Hain is in great form, averaging an astonishing 139 after eight games at the T20 tournament. His overall T20 average is 42 after 110 matches, with a strike rate of 135. In his two opening games, he produced unbeaten scores of 83 and 65 in the tournament. Apart from two single-digit scores, he has scored 48, 79*, and 35, as well as an unbeaten 97 off 52 balls against North Group table-toppers Nottinghamshire. His performance has taken Warwickshire to the second spot in their group.

Samit Patel

The Nottinghamshire player shows no signs of stopping yet. Samit has picked nine wickets in nine games. He also bats at number five and his last two games have yielded identical scores of 28, and his disciplined bowling has also won him the Man of the Match award. A downside to selecting him is that he can be inconsistent with his bowling. However, he tends to bowl at least three overs in each game and can be considered a safe pick.

Ben Green

Ben Green has been one of the best bowlers at the Vitality Blast T20 tournament. He has picked 16 wickets in just eight games, with an economy rate of 7.39. Ben has 48 wickets in 37 T20 games. But what makes his bowling astonishing is his strike rate of 13.6 deliveries. Ben can also add some vital runs in the lower order, which reflects in his 19.52 runs average and 141.06 strike rate. His contributions have led Somerset to the table-topper position in the South group, winning seven games and losing one. Ben should be a guaranteed pick whenever you play T20 Blast fantasy cricket involving Somerset.

David Malan

David has represented England in 98 games at the international level. Additionally, his years of experience, which include 303 games so far in T20 competitions, is just what Yorkshire needs to succeed. David has amassed 8,420 runs in T20s at an average of 33.54. David has scored 409 at this year's tournament in eight games. He averages 68.16 with the bat. In his last five innings, he has three 80+ scores — 95, 83, and 81, as well a 79 against Worcestershire. This makes him an easy pick for your teams in any Vitality T20 Blast fantasy games.


The Vitality T20 Blast in 2023 has been an action-packed tournament so far. Even if you were, the good news is that you can now pick players based on their current form and strengths. These are some of our best picks, and they can also be useful as captaincy options which earn you twice as many points. However, a player's form may change since this is a long tournament. Therefore, it is essential to keep track of trends and pick your players accordingly.
