Marnus is a genuine all-rounder in this format and won 3 in quick succession in the BBL last year, I was hoping for a big price either on him top bowler or in this, to catch the bookies unaware, but he is the best player on either side, so 8/1 is worth a go, you see 6s and less in this market at times.
Howell is a class bowler in this format, a strike rate is 16.8 is basically 1.5 wickets a game, no one in the Gloucs XI gets close to that, was expecting him to be 3.5.
Davies has been pushed down 1, by Finn Allen’s arrival. but he opened last year, he got 3×50 in 10 games last year and was their leading runscorer, and has 11 in 60 overall. Lancs are 1.4 favs, with good reason, so to get this on a number 3 with stats is great value.
Jacks will open the batting and turn his arm over, for a Surrey side who are favs, which already makes this value, last year he got 13 wickets at 16 going at 6.5 an over 7 catches, 309 runs at 35 with a strike rate of 150. He really is an all-round package.
Curran averages basically a wicket and a half a game, there is no Topley or Durnbach, he will bowl upfront and at the end. For me should be 3.75
Helm has 54 in 42 at a strike rate of 16 which is very good indeed, he has no real competition aside from Finn so again should be 3.75 for me.
