Darwin Cricket Club will look to extend their fine start in Darwin and District T20 when they clash with Palmerston Cricket Club in match 8 of the competition on Thursday, May 27.
DDC began their 2021 campaign with a solid seven-wicket win against Tracy Village CC, and are poised to maintain the form in their upcoming tie.
PCC, meanwhile, will look to get back to winning ways in the Darwin and District T20 season after losing their opening game by 25 runs to Nightcliff Cricket Club.
PCC vs DDC Dream11 prediction
Darwin Cricket Club are in a strong position to win match 8 of Darwin and District T20, considering their performance in their season-opening fixture. Strong performances by the likes of HJ Chamberlain and Connor Hawkins will be the key to condemning Palmerston Cricket Club to a second straight loss.
PCC vs DDC fantasy team picks for Darwin and District T20
Top tip: Best batsmen
Darwin Cricket Club will entrust HJ Chamberlain to be amongst the runs in the PCC vs DDC fixture. The opener smashed a 32-ball 63 in the opening game against TRV at an impressive strike rate of 196.9. He is well-placed to add to his tally of 94 fantasy points.
Liam Spark is PCC’s best bet in the batting department. Spark hit 35 runs off 42 balls in the 25-run loss to Nightcliff Cricket Club, and he will be eager to reward his owners with a confident knock.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Connor Hawkins should be the main strike bowler in your fantasy cricket team, considering he’s taken three wickets for 24 runs so far. With a fantasy haul of 85 points, Hawkins is backed by the odds to wreak havoc in the middle overs and set the tone for a convincing DDC win.
PCC’s Connor Blaxall, like Connor Hawkins, has taken three wickets in the 2021 edition of Darwin and District T20 but is economically better than the former. Blaxall conceded 18 runs in his previous game, making him a big threat to a DDC batting line-up that secured a win over TRV with 27 balls to spare.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
Beau Webster is rated as the top-performing player for the PCC vs DDC game in Darwin and District T20, with 58 fantasy points to his name. Webster contributed 34 runs off 32 balls against TRV while taking a catch to dismiss Coby Edmondstone. His athleticism and batting skills serves as a boon to his fantasy cricket owners.
William Foley is backed as the top-rated wicket-keeper for your fantasy team. The DDC gloveman has accounted for one dismissal (stumping) in Darwin and District T20 and is tipped to provide a confident display behind the stumps.
PCC vs DDC probable playing XI
PCC probable XI: Liam Sparke, Corey McDean (wicket-keeper), Connor Blaxall-Hill, Alex Bleakley, Oscar Oborn-Corby, Hamish Martin (captain), Jake Baker, Harry Zimmermann, Harshtik Bimbral, Daniel Mckell, Lucas Nitschke
