Top Dream11 picks for SOM vs GLA T20 match –
Here are the top five picks for your Glamorgan vs Somerset South Group, English T20 Blast match:
1. Babar Azam – Batsman, Somerset
The most prolific batsman for Pakistan in the World Cup, Babar Azam will definitely be one of the biggest names going into the match on Thursday. He is a really good talent and can score runs at lightning speed especially in the limited overs. Azam is a good choice and should feature in your SOM vs GLA Dream11 team.
2. Fakhar Zaman – Batsman, Glamorgan
From one Pakistani batsman to another, Fakhar Zaman is a tremendous talent especially in the shortest format of the game. Zaman would have liked Azam to be on his side, but this time both are pitted against each other. Zaman could well be the player to have the last laugh on Thursday and is an impact player to have in your Fantasy Cricket team.
3. Roelof van der Merwe – All-rounder, Somerset
Another specialist T20 player, van der Merwe has made a career playing domestic T20 tournaments across the globe and is one of the experienced figures of the competition. The Dutch international is the definition of a utility player who can bat deep and get the occasional wicket. His experience will come into use on Thursday and is a player you can bank on for in the SOM vs GLA ODI.
4. Craig Overton – Bowler, Somerset
A gritty fast-paced bowler, the tall right-arm pacer is an absolute menace for the batting side. Overton is one of those bowlers that you depend to get wickets early on and imagine the difference he would make if he is to pick up those wickets in the opener. Overton is an impact player and is a great choice for your Dream11 team.
5. Colin Ingram – Batsman, Glamorgan
The South Africa international could be a great pick for your Fantasy Cricket team mainly because of the versatility he brings into the game. Ingram can adapt to any given situation and is often a player his skipper looks to when the team is in trouble. One of those players who thrives under pressure, Ingram could be a star turner for the match on Thursday.
Suggested XI for SOM vs GLA Dream11 team:
Wicketkeeper – C Cooke
Batsmen – B Azam, C Ingram, D Lloyd, F Zaman (vc), J Hildreth
All-rounders – M Labushchange, R van der Merwe
Bowlers – C Overton (c), J Taylor, M de Lange
