MID vs SUR Top Picks for MID vs SUR Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Middlesex

Paul Stirling has been in magnificent form with the bat for the past six months. He has scored runs wherever he has played and it should be noted that his record at Lord’s is excellent. 

Eoin Morgan will be leading the Middlesex team and would be back in action after some time. After a disappointing IPL, he would be hoping to turn around his fortunes with the bat before he is back leading England.

Top Picks ­– Surrey

Sam Curran is a fantastic all-rounder and can come good in many ways. He has a terrific record in recent times in terms of contributing for his teams during the tough times. 

Jason Roy is the star international player in this Surrey team. His record in the T20 blast and against Middlesex is quite remarkable. With over 6000 runs in T20 cricket, he is a vital player in this team.

MID vs SUR Risky Captaincy Choices:

Eoin Morgan has been carrying an indifferent form with the bat ever since the pandemic started. Morgan also struggled to find his rhythm during the IPL season which happened in April and May. 

Tom Curran was last seen during the IPL and was struggling with his line and lengths. He might come good at Lord’s but might not be the best captaincy pick. 

Player you should avoid:

Gareth Batty has taken 147 wickets in 181 matches. He has an important role to play for Surrey but isn’t really rewarding as a fantasy pick.
