DUR vs WAS Dream11 team tips
Top tip: Best batsmen
Skipper Will Rhodes of WAS slammed a 40-ball 79 in the previous game against Leicestershire at a strike rate of just under 200. He also hit five 6s along the way. Rhodes is certain to bat at No. 3 and in his current form, it will be risky to drop him from your fantasy team.
David Bedingham of DUR opened the batting in the last game against Lancashire and scored 58 in 39 balls, which saw his side win the game comfortably. He has scored 172 runs in four games till now and has hit 10 sixes in the tournament so far.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Matty Potts of DUR picked up three wickets in the last game against Lancashire. He opens the bowling and has rarely gone wicket-less in the tournament. In four matches, he has picked up nine wickets.
Danny Briggs of WAS is an experienced spinner in the T20 format. He was also a part of the Big Bash Down under earlier in the year. Briggs can operate with the new ball and can also be called up later in the innings to stem the flow of runs. He has picked up eight wickets in five games at an average of 19.38 in this competition.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Carlos Brathwaite of WAS could be the best fit in the all-rounder category. The West Indian all-rounder picked up two wickets in the last game against Leicestershire in his allotted four overs. He can also be an asset with the bat in the middle order. Currently he is the third highest wicket-taker (9) in the tournament.
Ned Eckersley of DUR is a better pick compared to Michael Burgess in the wicket-keeper category. The Durham wicket-keeper has taken three catches and scored more than 100 runs in the tournament so far.
