Dream XI Wicket-Keepers
R.Rickelton (Price 9) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad as he has been in fine form throughout the tournament and will be the obvious pick in the team.
Dream XI Batsmen
D.Hendricks (Price 9) will be our batsman from the Lions as he is set to return as an opener for the Lions and he is a pretty decent option at the top. He is being picked by the majority of the people and will be a safe choice in the small-league teams.
R.van Tonder (Price 8) and A.Gous (Price 9) will be our batsman from the Knights. Tonder has been one of the most consistent batters of the Knights and will be a definite pick whereas Gous looked solid at the top in the last game and will be decent pick as well.
Dream XI All-Rounders
O.Pienaar (Price 9) and J.Snyman (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from the Knights. Snyman scored a brilliant century in the last game and will be eager to play yet another big knock for the team whereas Pienaar is a pretty solid middle-order batsman and can be an asset with the ball too.
D.Potgieter (Price 8.5) and W.Lubbe (Price 8.5) are the gun all-rounders for the Lions and will feature in our team too. Potgieter has been very effective with the ball recently and can be an asset with the bat too whereas Lubbe has been a batting all-rounder who can hit the ball very hard and can be a decent bowler.
Dream XI Bowlers
T.Ntuli (Price 8) and S.von Berg (Price 9) will be the bowlers from the Knights as they both have been very good options for the team. They both have picked 5 and 6 wickets respectively in just 4 games.
A.Phangiso (Price 8.5) will our bowler from the Cobras team as Phangiso is in very good form as he has picked 8 wickets in just 4 games and he is the 3rd highest wicket-taker of the competition.
Top Picks for the Captain Role:- Ryan Rickelton, Jacques Snyman and Aaron Phangiso.
Top Picks for the Vice-Captain Role:- All the Captain’s pick + Potgieter & Gous
Match Prediction:- The Lions would be the favourite to win this game because they bolster a very good bowling attack and has a very good batting line-up too. They are in very good form.
