Daniel Lazarides of ZAS is a top pick for this clash. The southpaw is currently the leading run-scorer in the tournament with 253 runs in six innings at a whopping strike rate of 250.

Gaurav Chopra of BEL is the best option amongst the bowlers. The right-arm medium pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker for his side with five wickets in four matches at an economy of 6.80. The 34-year-old has been entrusted with the responsibility of picking wickets with the new ball and makes for a handy inclusion to fantasy teams.
