Venue: Seddon Park, Hamilton
Pitch & Conditions:
The wicket at Seddan Park has been good for batting & unlike most of the other venues in this season’s Super Smash, the first game at Hamilton was a high scoring one where both teams managed to score 385 runs.
Craig Cachopa(c),James Vince, Sean Solia, Mitch Mclenaghan, Glen Phillips(wk), Matt Quinn, Ben Lister, Robbie ODonnell, Ronnie Hira, Donovan Grobbelaar, Mark Chapman, Will Sommerville.
Dean Brownlie(c), Anton Devcich, Peter Bocock(wk), Chris Jordan ,Neil Wagner, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kugglejin, Tarun Nethula, Brett Hampton, Daryl Mitchell, Dan Flynn, C Anderson
Devcich, Brownlie (C), Flynn, Anderson, Mitchell, Santner, Bocock (Wk), Kuggeleijn, Jordan, Wagner, Nethula.
*Nethula, Bocock, Wagner & Jordan are expected to replace Sodhi, Seifert & Randell & Hampton respectively.
*Brownlie will open along with Devcich & either can they shift Flynn up the order (back to his usual position) or can follow the same order with everyone shifting one up.
Vince, Solia, Phillips (Wk), Chapman, Cachopa (C), O’Donnell, Hira, Somerville, McCleneghan, Lister, Quinn.
My Dream11 Team:
Wk: Phillips (Only option available)
Batsmen: Vince, Brownlie, Chapman/Cachopa, Mitchell
Allrounders: Devcich, Solia, Santner
Bowlers: Lister, Somerville, Wagner.
(Will have to drop McClenaghan & Jordan to accommodate Solia. Alternatively, you can also Drop Solia & pick one of them especially, Jordan)
Devcich undoubtedly, will be the best captain’s pick. Along with him, Phillips, Santner & Daryl Mitchell are good as well.
Also, for gl’s, do consider former Aces leggie Tarun Nethula who’s expected to debut for Northern Knights tomorrow. He was one of leading wicket takers last season & can be good option on a high scoring pitch.
Good Luck & do upvote if you like the analysis.
