Wicket-keeper for WOR vs SOM Dream 11
Ben Cox and Tom Banton are the 2 wicket-keepers under consideration. They have both batted pretty well throughout the series. If possible, I would have picked them both. However, since that is not an option, I would go for Tom Banton who bats as an opener compared to Ben Cox who bats lower down the order. Also, Banton comes half a credit cheaper than Cox.
Bowlers for WOR vs SOM Dream 11
The strategy remains the same for this match as well. Pick as less bowlers as possible since they do not provide value for investment in Dream11 whose points system is biased towards batsmen. My first pick for this match is a no-brainer. Craig Overton has been lethal with the ball and has managed to pick wickets in almost every match. His wicket-taking ability makes Craig a must-have in your team. My second bowler for this match will be the former Proteas pacer, Wayne Parnell. He has been in impressive form thus far and has also managed to pick up a 5-for in his last match as well. He can prove to be a gamechanger for your Dream11 team. Somerset’s Josh Davey will be my last bowler. His medium pace has troubled many batsmen upfront in the powerplay overs. He can also score some runs if needed at the back-end of the innings.
All-rounders for WOR vs SOM Dream 11
I have picked as many as 3 all-rounders for this match since they can contribute with both bat and ball and these 3 cannot be ignored after their performances. The first all-rounder to walk in to the squad is another former Proteas international cricketer, Roelof van der Merwe. He has been in superlative form with both bat and bowl and has contributed significantly to Somerset. He can prove to be the difference between both these teams.
He generally bowls his 10 overs and smashed some big ones towards the end. Lewis Gregory also makes my XI on the back of some very impressive performances. He has batted well down the order and plays a significant role for Somerset at the death. Death overs produce more wickets as the batsmen try to accelerate.
More wickets mean more Dream11 points and hence, Gregory needs to be in. My third all-rounder for this match is Brett D’Oliveira, the Worcestershire skipper. He bats at No. 5 and bowls his 10 overs more often than not. In addition to this, his great form makes him a fantastic fantasy cricket potential.
Batsmen for WOR vs SOM Dream 11
James Hildreth will be my first pick undoubtedly. He has been in tremendous form and is coming off a masterful 93 off 89 balls. The fact that he is striking the ball with great finesse and class makes him the best bet for my captain. Expect him to come good here. Riki Wessels makes my team as well. He opens the batting and has scored a fantastic century in the last match. His batting form and opening slot encourages me to make him my team’s vice captain.
Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali also gets into my team as he fits the bill of an experienced cricketer who opens the batting and can score some big runs. It will be too big a risk to leave him out. The last batsman would be Tom Fell who has been either opening the innings or batting at No. 3. He has scored a few 40+ scores and has been getting the starts. He might get a big one here. Get him in!
