HAM vs SOM Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain
Devon Conway is undoubtedly the best choice for the captain for the fantasy side here. The Kiwi opener is in excellent form at the moment and had crossed fifty in every single game so far in this Vitality Blast. He is likely to dominate here as well.
D’Arcy Short is having a decent tournament so far and has contributed from both fronts. He will be opening the innings for the team and when these two teams met earlier, he smashed 37 from just 27 deliveries. He is likely to pick at least a wicket or two here.
Colin de Grandhomme is in excellent form at the moment. He recently scored 150 in the County Championship and looked good with the ball too. When these two teams met earlier in this tournament, he had 66 from 34 deliveries and also had managed to pick up a couple of wickets.
Will Smeed has performed well in this tournament but is more of underrated here because of the presence of stars like Devon Conway in the team. The youngster will be looking to convert his start to a big score today and when these two teams met earlier, he scored an unbeaten 66.
HAM vs SOM- Top Picks by experts
Scott Currie has managed to produce breakthroughs regularly for his team and he could be the game-changer here. He has picked up eight wickets in his last three matches with the best of 4/31 against the same opponent.
Mason Crane might be expensive but has vast experience and can pick up wickets when it is needed. One can expect a couple of wickets from him today.
