Date & Time: July 26, 6.30 PM Local time, 11 PM IST 

Probable Playing XIs

The Superchargers are likely to play the same side in their 2nd game as well despite a loss. Faf Du Plessis is still not cleared to compete for the Superchargers. They would like a much-improved performance from their bowlers especially at the death and the top-order to fire.

Trent Rockets’ only concern would be Alex Hales’s first-ball duck, otherwise, they had a dominating win and will like to give the same set of players a go.

Fantasy Tips 

Batsmen: Alex Hales and Dawid Malan can be picked as the batsman from the Trent Rockets. Hales got a golden duck in the last game but has been in tremendous form throughout the summer. Harry Brook from the Superchargers can be picked. He played a stunning knock in the last game.

Wicket-Keeper: Tom Kohler-Cadmore of Northern Superchargers can be picked as the lone wicket-keeper of the side. He is a pretty good batsman in the middle-order in this format.

All-Rounders: Ben Stokes is an obvious pick as the all-rounder in a dream team, while the veteran Samit Patel who is representing Trent Rockets can be picked. The next all-rounder slot can be given to D’Arcy Shot who scored a half-century last game and is handy with the ball as well.

Bowlers: The leggies Rashid Khan and Adil Rashid representing opposite sides can be picked in the team. They both are effective in this format and are highly successful. Marchant De Lange put on a great performance last game and can be picked. Brydon Carse can be expected to make a bigger impact in this game.

Fantasy Team: Dawid Malan, Alex Hales (VC), Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Samit Patel, D’arcy Short, Rashid Khan, Adil Rashid, Marchant De Lange, Brydon Carse

Captain – Alex Hales

Alex Hales is one of the best batters in this format. He may have scored a duck in the last game but he is still the right candidate for the captaincy. 

ViceCaptain: Ben Stokes is one of the best all-rounders in the world and can do pretty much everything on the cricket field. He can be made the vice-captain.
