SUS vs KET Dream11 prediction
Sussex and Kent are two of the three teams in South Group that are yet to win a match this season. While the former has been beaten by Gloucestershire and Glamorgan, the latter has faced defeats against Essex and Somerset.
On Sunday though, Kent might have the advantage given that they have won 15 of their 27 matches against Sussex in the past.
SUS vs KET Dream11 team tips for Vitality T20 Blast 2022
Top tip: Best batter
Selected by 80.6 per cent of fantasy users, Kent’s Joe Denly is the most-picked batter for this contest. The 36-year-old has scored 40 runs in two innings this season, taking his tally to 52 points this season. Given the order of his batting, he remains a strong recommendation for this match.
Top tip: Best bowler
With 105 fantasy points already to his tally, it comes as no surprise that Sussex’s Steven Finn is the second-most picked player for this contest. The 33-year-old bowler has picked three wickets so far this season and has managed to keep his economy under six. Interestingly, he has made it to the Dream Team in each of his two outings.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Kent’s Jack Leaning was fantastic against Somerset in his first match of the season, scoring an unbeaten 72 off just 43 balls. While his innings was overshadowed by Rilee Rossouw, he remained a quality pick for the fantasy managers. With 124 fantasy points already in his kitty, Leaning could be the differential on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Mohammad Rizwan remains an outright choice for a wicket-keeper. The Sussex custodian has scored 139 runs in two matches and is playing at an average of 139. Hence, picking him is a no-brainer.
