Clove Challengers (CC) face Saffron Strikers (SS) looking to emerge victorious in the reverse fixture in match 17 of the Spice Isle T10 on Saturday, June 5, at the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada.
CC have won and lost two games each out of a total of four matches played so far. They are currently positioned fifth on the points table.
SS are placed second on the table with four points and the same win-loss ratio as CC. However, they are ahead on account of a better net run rate. They defeated the Challengers by nine wickets in their previous matchup and will aim to do the double over them on Saturday.
CC vs SS Dream11 prediction
The two teams are not separated by the points, however, it is SS that are marginally ahead in terms of team combination and all-round performances. The last encounter between the two teams went in favour of the Strikers and it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they claim another win in their second meeting against the Challengers this season.
CC vs SS best players to pick for Spice Isle T10 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Darron Nedd is the man in form for CC. He struck a masterly 31-ball 51 against the Warriors to set up an eight-wicket win and also scored an unbeaten 17-ball 50 earlier in the tournament against the Generals. He is a definite pick in any fantasy team.
Mickel Joseph is the batsman to watch out for SS. He struck an unbeaten 16-ball 30 against the Blasters and a 9-ball 32 against the Warriors early on in the tournament. He is definitely one of the best attacking options available for your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Jeron Noel has played a key role in CC’s bowling unit so far. He has struck at crucial moments and has provided necessary breakthroughs. Noel has also maintained a healthy economy of 8.50 across four matches.
Alex Moses has been a silent contributor with the ball for SS. He has been constantly picking up wickets at regular intervals and has taken four wickets in the last three matches, making him a wise pick for your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
SS wicket-keeper Lendon Lawrence is the wicket-keeper to watch out for. He hit a superb unbeaten 31-ball 64 in his last match against the Blasters at a strike rate in excess of 200. He also hit a 16-ball 32 before that, demonstrating his hitting ability at the top of the order.
Kem Charles, the SS all-rounder, is a must-have in your fantasy team. He averages 56.8 points per match and is selected by a majority of team owners. He is a handy batsman in the middle-order and is tricky to face with the ball. He took 2/11 in the last matchup against CC.
