Top Picks for BPH vs SOB Dream11 Match:
Livingstone has been playing brilliantly in T20Is and did well in Phoenix’s last game as well. He will look to continue his form in this match as well. Also, he took a wicket in the first game as well.
The allrounder has been in excellent form in this season of The Hundred. Against Trent Rockets, he made 35 from just 21 balls and took the big scalp of Dawid Malan in the same match.
The spinner did not get a wicket and gave away 28 runs from his 15 deliveries. But Tahir would be able to perform better against Southern Brave in today’s match.
The skipper of Southern Brave was exceptional in the opening game against the Welsh Fire. He remained unbeaten on 71 and was also the leading run-scorer for his team last year.
Jordan was quite successful against Welsh Fire in Southern Brave’s opening game. He took two wickets and conceded only 16 runs in his 15 deliveries. Jordan will be a key bowler for Southern Brave in today’s match as well.
Quinton de Kock
The keeper-batsman for Southern Brave missed the first game of the season due to national commitments but he will be available for selection for the game against Birmingham today.
Players to avoid for BPH vs SOB Dream11 Match:
The opening batter was not in form against Trent Rockets and was out for 7 runs. He will have to score big today against the defending champs.
Although the 17-year-old has all the potential to be chosen for his all-round skills, he still can be considered as a future player for England but for today’s clash, it will be best to avoid him as there are a plethora of other international bowlers.
