SOM vs GLO Dream11 Wicket-Keeper

Babar has not been in a really good form in the tournament so far but we all know what he is capable of and he has proved that in the International circuit as well whereas Abell has batted well for the side and has scored two big half-centuries in the tournament so far. Both Babar and Abell are the core of Somerset’s batting and will be picked for this game.
Ian Cockbain (Price 9.5) and Chris Dent (Price 8.5) will be our batsmen from Gloucestershire. Both of them have played really well for their sides and would like to continue their form in this game as well. Cockbain has scored 142 runs in the last three innings whereas Dent has scored 200 runs in his last 4 innings. Both Cockbain and Dent are performing brilliantly and will be picked for this game.
SOM vs GLO Dream11 All-Rounders
Lewis Gregory (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Somerset side. Gregory is an international level player and is the captain of the side. He has scored 30 runs and has picked 5 wickets in the 3 games he has played in the tournament so far. Lewis will certainly be picked.
Ryan Higgins (Price 9.5) and Graeme Van Buuren (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounders from Gloucestershire. Higgins has been absolutely brilliant this season with both bat and the ball. He has picked 10 wickets this season and is only the third player in the tournament to reach double-figures in wickets whereas he has scored 100 runs in his batting as well. Buuren, on the other hand, has picked 6 wickets in the tournament and has scored 61 runs in batting as well. Both of them are really good players and should be picked for this game.

Overton has not bowled really well in the tournament so far but he has represented England in the International format and is a really good bowler whereas Sale has picked six wickets in the tournament so far and is one of their main bowlers of the side. Both of them should be picked for this game.
Tom Smith (Price 8.5) will be our bowler from Gloucestershire. Smith is an experienced player and has picked 10 wickets till now in the tournament and is the joint 2nd highest wicket-taker with Ryan Higgins. He is in a top-notch form and will certainly be picked for this game.
