Hampshire Top Picks

James Vince

James Vince is in top form and has historically done well at the Rose Bowl, averaging 32.49 runs here. With the new ball unlikely to swing, he should be able to counter the threat posed by Sam Curran and Co.

Ben McDermott

We don’t have many good options in the wicket-keeping section, except for Ben McDermott. He looked in fine form in the last game and will look to build on it.

Nathan Ellis

Surrey likes to play attacking cricket, so Ellis will be in play. He will bowl two overs at the death and is also handy with the bat.

Liam Dawson

Despite Liam Dawson’s struggles in the most last game, he is still bowling the full quota of overs and performing well with a bat. Surrey have enough right-handers to put together some favorable matchups for him.

Surrey Top Picks

Sam Curran

Sam Curran is a must-have in any fantasy team due to his top-order batting as well as bowling full quota of overs with the new and old ball. His selection will definitely add value to your team.

Will Jacks

Jack has gotten off to a good start with the bat, but he hasn’t been able to make a big score yet. However, he has a great record at this venue with the bat and continues to pick up wickets regularly. We may see him bowling against Whiteley and Dawson in the latter stages of the innings.

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine’s performance in the last three games has been impressive, taking two wickets in each match and boosting his confidence. His batting is also finding its rhythm, scoring 29 runs in the last game. The Rose Bowl pitch provides enough assistance for spinners, making Narine a key player to watch out for.

Sean Abbott

He has only picked up one wicket in the last two games, but surprisingly scored a hundred in his last outing. Due to his all-round abilities with the bat and the ball, he has a massive fantasy points upside.

Differential Picks: HAM v SUR

Chris Jordan

After going through a subpar IPL tournament, he has returned to the team as captain and is expected to bowl his full quota of overs. He is good pick for your fantasy teams.

Tom Prest

He showed glimpses of form with his quick-fire 30 in the last game. Batting in the top order, he should be a good differential pick.
