NOT Vs DER Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
Nottinghamshire looks a far stronger side on paper, not just in terms of quality, but in terms of experience as well. They have got players who are proven domestic performers and have also performed in various T20 leagues around the world.
Derbyshire is lacking quite a bit in terms of quality if compared to Nottinghamshire and it would be an absolute miracle if they get better of Nottinghamshire. If sanity prevails, Nottinghamshire will win the game with ease.
NOT Playing 11 (expected): Chris Nash, Alex Hales, Joe Clarke, Ben Duckett, Tom Moores (WK), Daniel Christian (C), Steven Mullaney, Samit Patel, Imad Wasim, Luke Fletcher, and Jake Ball.
DER Playing 11 (expected): Billy Godleman (C), Luis Reece, Wayne Madsen, Leus du Plooy, Matthew Critchley, Alex Hughes, Anuj Dal, Harvey Hosein (WK), Matt McKiernan, Edward Barnes, and Samuel Conners.
Luis Reece: Luis Reece is a genuine all-rounder for Derbyshire and not only does he open the batting, he completes his full quota with the ball as well in most of the games. Since he can earn points in the fantasy with both bat and ball, he can be ideal pick as captain.
Alex Hales: Alex Hales is currently one of the most explosive players in T20 cricket, not just in England, but in the world. He has not got going properly for Nottinghamshire in the tournament yet, but the day he gets going, he is capable of winning the game single-handedly.
Joe Clarke: Joe Clarke is proving to be a serial six-hitter in the Vitality T20 Blast. Even in the last game against Lancashire, he scored 77 runs off just 36 balls batting at no. 3. He will be another key player in the game.
Imad Wasim: Imad Wasim is the newest overseas recruit for Nottinghamshire and he has made his mark with the ball straightaway. He is another player who can earn points through both bat and ball if he is promoted higher up the order. However, his primary forte is his left arm spin bowling.
Matthew Critchley: Matthew Critchley is a leg-spinner who can also hit the ball a fair distance, batting at no. 5 or no. 6 for Derbyshire. There have been a couple of games where Critchley has taken Derbyshire close to the victory this season. However, he hasn’t been able to eventually drag Derby over the line. On form, Critchley can be picked as Dream11 vice-captain.
Daniel Christian: Daniel Christian has been a seasoned campaigner in T20 cricket over the years and he is someone who almost guarantees some sort of meaningful contribution somewhere in the game. He is the finisher with the bat for Nottinghamshire, but can also bowl a game changing spell with the ball.
