Your value bomb for this game could be your wicket-keeper pick. Clearly, everyone has their eyes on Somerset’s Tom Banton who bats higher and has 2 centuries this season, including a match winning one in the quarter final. However, Tom Moores from Notts could be your winning pick. He bats lower and is a less popular pick, but this gamble could pay off. He has 265 runs this season including 4 fifties.

There’s no thought of not picking Samit Patel. Someone with all-round abilities is always preferred for fantasy leagues, and Patel has exactly that, with 8 wickets and lets not forget, a match-winning 136* in the last game. If you fantasy team vice-captain slot is empty, Samit Patel would make a great fit.


Somerset found an unlikely hero in Azhar Ali last game, not with the bat but with the ball. He has been used an a bowling option in the last 4 games and he astonished everyone with 5/34. Considering he also has a fifty and century so far this tournament, he’s a good option to make captain or vice-captain of your Dotball (Sign-up here) fantasy team for this game.

With the ball, Scotland international Josh Davey has been having a fantastic tournament so far, so much so that he missed out on the series against Afghanistan recently. He has 10 wickets in the tournament so far but remember, only 1 has come from his last three games. Craig Overton is also a brilliant option, their highest wicket-taker this year and he has some batting abilities to add to his skill set.
