NW vs BLB Dream11 prediction
Going by form, BLB have clearly been the better of the two sides this season, having won a match more than NW. To make things worse for the Warriors, they also come to this fixture at the back of a nine-wicket loss against Ginger Generals. The Blasters, on the other hand, will be confident after beating Clove Challengers by 10 runs in their last match.
NW vs BLB best players
Top tip: Best batsmen
Unfortunately, the Warriors have found it difficult to get consistent performers so far. Going by recent performances though, Seandell Regis could be a good bet given that he has 133 runs in the last five games and 294 fantasy points so far.
Opening BLB batsman Sharkim Edwards played a match-winning innings of 34 runs from 17 balls last match, where he hit two boundaries and three sixes. With a fantasy points tally of 201, Edwards will be the best bet against NW.
Top tip: Best bowlers
NW don't really have a strike bowler as such, although skipper Andre Fletcher has been reliable with the leather. He has three wickets in the last five matches and should be a dependable option
Amikel Dubissette was clearly the best bowler for the Blasters as he returned with figures of 2/13 against Clove Challengers. Amikel has scalped six wickets in his last five matches, garnering 206 points so far.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Getting called to bat just once in the last five matches, Blasters' Deron Hypolite hasn't been able to showcase his all-round abilities. However, he has scalped three wickets in those five games and will be a handy all-rounder option.
BLB's Denis Smith will be the best wicket-keeping option coming to this fixture. The 29-year-old has tallied 107 runs in his last five matches and comes in handy with the willow in the middle-order. He has 241 fantasy points so far.
NW vs BLB probable playing XI
Nutmeg Warriors playing XI (probable): Andre Fletcher (captain), Jevon Andrew (wicket-keeper), Akeem Alexis, Nealon Francois, Donald McDonald, Riddick Hayling, Isaiah Simon, Josh Thomas, Haston Jackson, Sheldon Joseph, Dane Murray
