MRS vs SSCS Dream11 prediction
While MRS have more time and matches in hand to come out as title contenders later in the campaign, SSCS go into the fixture on the back of a comprehensive seven-wicket victory over VFSS in their last match. Even though MRS go into the fixture after beating GICB by six runs, the Mon Repos Stars are still experimenting with their team combination. A well-set SSCS will be the favourites to exploit MRS in this match.
MRS vs SSCS best players
Top tip: Best batsmen
Keon Gaston could be an efficient pick for the best batsman from the MRS team. While he’s yet to wield his willow this season, the middle-order batsman was instrumental in MRS' campaign last season. Gaston has also been used with the ball this season and has taken a wicket against GICB.
For SSCS, Xytus Emmanuel will continue to be the pick of the batsmen with his strong start to the campaign this time in terms of fantasy points. Emmanuel's 13-ball-26 against BLS was crucial and the player sits atop of the list of batsmen with 177 points.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Hazel Charlery has been quite effective in terms of fantasy points for the Mon Repos Stars. Registered as a regular bowler for MRS, Charlery is yet to take a wicket but he’s scored 58 runs in two matches, fetching 94 points so far.
Kervell Prospere remains SSCS's best bowler in the tournament so far. Playing in all the five matches, the bowler has scalped four wickets while conceding only 62 runs in the process. He has garnered 156 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best all-rounder, wicketkeeper
SSCS's Shani Mesmain remains the best all-rounder from both teams by quite a distance. Having played all five matches, Mesmain has scored 57 runs and scalped six wickets for his side, collecting a whopping 305 points so far.
Quite unsurprisingly, SSCS's Julian Sylvester should be your best bet in the wicket-keeper's position. Apart from his glovework behind the stumps, Sylvester has been handy with the bat as well, scoring 97 runs in five matches.
