SYS vs ADS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Josh Philippe and Alex Carey are both 9.5 credits but both found form last time out and are both worth picking. 

  • Batsmen

    Jake Weatherald starred last time out, while Jordan Silk has also found form this season as well. Jake Edwards is 8.5 credits, like Silk, and the three make a versatile batting line-up.

  • All-rounders

    Jason Holder is pushing for a first start and if he does, he is worth picking at nine credits. His bowling is key and he will swing the bat if it comes down to it. Compatriot Carlos Brathwaite showed his bowling form last time out, meanwhile, and he is just 8.5 credits.

  • Bowlers

    Rashid Khan is 9.5 credits and looks an excellent pick, even if he is still yet to find his world-leading form. Peter Siddle and Ben Dwarshuis are exceptional value considering their form in their respective last games, while Steve O’Keefe has been in the wickets of late too. 

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Ben Dwarshuis and Peter Siddle go into this game on the back of excellent bowling performance, while the two wicket-keepers are in good batting form. Josh Philippe and Alex Carey are might be worth gambling on.

SYS vs ADS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jake Weatherald, Jordan Silk, Jake Edwards

  • All Rounder:Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite

  • Wicket Keeper:Josh Philippe (c), Alex Carey (vc)

  • Bowler:Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle, Steve O’Keefe, Ben Dwarshuis
