Final Verdict

Kopavogur Puffins to beat Hafnarfjodur Hammers

KPG vs HFJ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Lee Nelson goes into the tournament as the Hammers’ top runscorer so far. He is nine credits and that looks good value considering his importance to the team. They also have David Abew-Baidoo as a top-order batsman too, while Sebastiaan Dreyer fulfils that role for Kopavogur Puffins.

  • Batsmen

    Leslie Dcunha is nine credits at the top of the order for Kopavogur but he is one of their leading batsmen so far this season. Bala Kamallakharan is only eight credits, as is Riaan Dreyer – both could prove good value too.

  • All-rounder(s)

    The most critical players are the all-rounders – Dushan Bandara is ten credits, as is Mohammad Younus, but both are key men with bat and ball for their respective teams. They are the obvious choices and selections elsewhere means there is no issue with their ten-credit cost either.

  • Bowlers

    Sampath Nagarajan is nine credits and Abhishek Chauhan is 8.5, but both have the wickets to justify selecting them. Nolan Williams is a long-serving, consistent wicket-taker for the Hammers too.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Dushan Bandara is ten credits and he is a key batsman and bowler for the Puffins. He is the obvious choice for captain. Hafnarfjodur Hammers have their own key all-rounder too, and Mohammad Younus is a vice-captain.

KPG vs HFJ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Leslie Dcunha, Bala Kamallakharan, Riaan Dreyer

  • All Rounder:Dushan Bandara (c), Mohammad Younus (vc)

  • Wicket Keeper:Lee Nelson, David Abew-Baidoo, Sebastiaan Dreyer

  • Bowler:Sampath Nagarajan, Abhishek Chauhan, Nolan Williams
