Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes – Dream11 Top Picks
If you are looking for a player who loves scoring runs and getting you a bunch of fantasy points, Joe Clarke is the one you want. The wicket-keeper batsman is in hot form and is also the top run-scorer for the Melbourne Stars with 384 runs to his name. He will be a safe pick for your fantasy lineup.
He is one of the craftiest bowlers in the sport and has been amazing in domestic as well as international series. The Australian has 10 wickets to his name in this season of the Big Bash League, but you can count on him to get a few more scalps before the tournament is done.
The 27-year-old Australian Wicketkeeper-batsman has been an absolute weapon for the Hobart Hurricanes this season. He opens the batting predominantly and more often than not, puts in a good shift. He has scored 516 runs for the Hurricanes this season and picking him will be a good decision.
After a lukewarm first half of the season, Sandeep seems to have found his stride in the latter half of the Big Bash League and is currently on his way to becoming one of the leading wicket-takers for the Hurricanes. He has scalped 9 wickets in the last 6 matches, with the best figures reading 2/22.
