MLS vs SDT Dream11 Predictions, BBL 2018-19, Match 3: Preview and Probable XI
Squads to choose from
Ben Dunk, Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell(c), Jackson Bird, Sandeep Lamichhane, Dwayne Bravo, Travis Dean, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Worrall, Scott Boland, Nic Maddinson.
Fawad Ahmed, Callum Ferguson, Jason Sangha, Shane Watson(c), Chris Jordan, Ryan Gibson, Liam Hatcher, Joe Root, Gurinder Sandhu, Daniel Sams, Anton Devcich.
English cricketer Jos Buttler should remain the first choice as the wicket-keeper. His performances in IPl 2018 garnered him a significant amount of praise from the public, where he single-handedly steered the Rajasthan Royals into the play-offs stages of the tournament.
Glenn Maxwell and Shane Watson are the definite picks for the Fantasy XI. The duo has been one of the most consistent performers in BBL competitions and sure shot contributors in the ongoing edition. The third and final pick should be Ryan Gibson who has already been touted as one of the emerging players for the Thunders in the ongoing season.
Adam Zampa should be the first pick among the bowlers from Sydney Thunders. The past few years have witnessed the 26-year-old take rapid strides in T20 cricket, with mind-boggling performances in almost every single contest and thus, similar would be expected out of him in the forthcoming duel at Melbourne.
Liam Plunkett is someone who could scalp wickets at the situation’s behest without enduring much duress. His experience of 130 T20s would surely help the Melbourne Stars in getting an edge over the rival Thunders.
One could also go in for Sandeep Lamichhane who has been termed an “absolute star” by his team-mate and skipper Glenn Maxwell. The 18-year-old’s going to make his BBL debut in the forthcoming event prior to which he has been a part of 12 T20s wherein he has affected 14 dismissals at an average of 19.92.
The final pick should be Scott Boland who has an experience of bowling under Melbourne’s conditions. He has played across four T20 tournaments and also been a member of the ODI and T20I units for the Australian team.
Marcus Stoinis has had many successes in the recently played white-ball contests versus Pakistan and India, thereby making him the first choice for the all-rounder’s position in the fantasy XI.
Dwayne Bravo remains the undisputed choice amongst the all-rounders. He was a class apart in the previous edition wherein he scalped 18 wickets to his name and ended with best figures of 5-28 in a matter of 11 contests.
The final pick could be Jason Sangha, the former Australia U-19 skipper who led his team to 2018 U-19 World Cup finals. It would be interesting to see how the right arm-leg spinner performs in his debut Big Bash contest.
Jos Buttler would be the perfect choice as the captain for the fantasy XI. His performances, both with the bat as well as with the gloves, have been raking in tremendous appreciation from the cricketing fraternity across the globe, which rightly account for his selection as the skipper of the Fantasy XI.
Jos Buttler (c,wk), Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, Jason Sangha, Dwayne Bravo, L Plunkett, S Boland, S Lamichhane, Glenn Maxwell, Shane Watson(vc), R Gibson.
