Probable Best Performers from VIP vs GUL

Probable best batter: Alex Hales 

It is the battle of two Englishmen in the run-scoring charts as Alex Hales and James Vince fight it out for the top spot. But it is the former who is winning the battle, for now, thanks to a swashbuckling century, the first of the tournament, in his previous outing.

Probable best bowler: Chris Jordan

Gulf Giants' Chris Jordan is having a brilliant tournament with the ball. The Englishman has bagged six wickets in just three matches and is the leading wicket-taker in the competition. His all-round abilities has made him an invaluable asset to the team.
