SUS vs HAM Dream11 Team: South Zone set to see Hampshire and Sussex Sharks finally take to the middle as either side prepares for its opening match of the frontier league
Wrapping up an enthralling day of cricket from the dramatic land of the Vitality Blast are two sides who will be eager to get involved in the scheme of things. Yet to play a match, South Zone’s Hampshire and Sussex Sharks will finally feature in the culminating encounter of the day when the two sides lock heads against each other today night.
For Sussex Sharks, today’s match is all about showing why they can go the distance and put in a spectacular run in the league when they take on a clearly superior Hampshire outfit. Lined with some exemplary names in the form of Liam Dawson, James Vince, Chris Morris and Markram, Hampshire’s batting unit makes for a delectable viewing. The side is pouring to the brim with some outstanding names, players who could make life extremely treacherous for Essex’s bowling unit on the night.
For Essex, this match is going to come down to their bowling unit. They are missing Jofra Archer for this one but have at their disposal newly appointed captain of the Afghanistan cricket team, Rashid Khan. The legspinner endured a horrid time in the country in the World Cup, coming across as one of the worst bowlers as his brand of spin was clean out and taken apart. However, he’s more effective in the shortest format of the game and with English players traditionally clueless against spin, he will play a good role in Essex’s fortunes on the day.
With both the sides looking to acclimatise to the shortest format of the game today, expect this to be a match where both the outfits could be a little tentative before eventually settling into their groove. For us, Hampshire’s squad strength especially in the batting department is going to be too much for Essex to handle who should be put down with a runway performance by Hampshire’s bats.
Wicket-Keeper for SUS vs HAM Dream11
One of the players to have impressed the most at the recently concluded World Cup, Australia’s wicket-keeper made heads turn with his determination, technique and application. Knowing when to keep his intent in check and when to switch his game to find the boundaries, his knowhow of the situation and understanding of the game was fascinating to see and we are going to make him the first player in our side.
Batters for SUS vs HAM Dream11
Our entre batting order is composed of players from Hampshire with us not wanting to leave out any of their star performer in this one. Aneurin Donald, Aiden Markram and James Vince all come into our side as part of the trivalent we have opted from the side. These three are going to play a crucial role in the side’s quest to pile on a score close to the symbolic milestone of 200 and we see them delivering and justifying the high expectations accorded from them.
All-Rounders for SUS vs HAM Dream11
With the all-rounders one of the most important part of a Dream 11 side given their ability to encapsulate their enterprising abilities with both the bat and ball and bring in a basketful of points, we have doled out the four all-rounders in our outfit for this one. The two come in from either side with these players bound to play a pivotal role in either side’s final result on the night.
Sussex see us go with David Wiese and Delray Rawlins given the importance both these players hold in the batting unit of their side. In what is not the most stable of top orders, these two names will need to come up with cameos to post a daunting score infront of an extremely well-versed Hampshire batting side.
From Hampshire its Chris Morris and Liam Dawson who have been elected by us. The mainstays of our side, these two are going to take centrestage for the side across the course of the tournament and come up with significant performances.
Bowling Order for SUS vs HAM Dream11
Given Sussex’s paper thin batting line-up, Fidel Edwards and Mason Crane come in to form a deadly two man partnership which is bound to be amongst a rich haul of wickets today. From Sussex it’s the lone selection of Rashid Khan which completes our Dream 11 outfit for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have gone ahead with Wiese to be our captain for today’s final match while its Vince who has been selected as the vice-captain.
