Top Picks for MNR vs WEF Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
The in-form wicketkeeper batter continued his good form with 70 runs off just 46 balls knock against the Rockets in the last match but it was not enough for Manchester Originals to secure a win. He scored 36 runs against London Spirit and is now leading the most-runs chart for his team with 107 runs.
The South African batter smashed 35 runs off 30 balls in the last match against the Phoenix and his form can be the x-factor for Welsh Fire in the remaining matches. Miller scored 30 runs in two T20I innings against England last month and has struggled for consistency since the completition of the Indian Premier League 2022 in May.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
The star South African all-rounder missed the first two matches due to national team duties. He managed to score only four runs and failed to take any wicket while conceding 26 runs in the last match against the Phoenix. But he remains the clear pick due to the lack of quality all-rounder options for this fixture.
Top Picks – Bowlers
The in-form English leg-spinner has been doing well in the absence of Wanindu Hasaranga so far. He has taken a wicket in each match and has bowled economical spells as well.
The 24-year-old pacer has been impressive in the Vitality T20 Blast for the last few years and has been the best bowler for Welsh Fire so far. He took two wickets in the last match against the Phoenix while conceding just 22 runs and a wicket against the Invincibles while conceding 31 runs.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
The English batter will be an easy pick for wicketkeeper choice over in-form youngsters Phil Salt and Tom Banton. He scored 41 runs off just 25 balls in the last match after his 59-run knock in the opening match. He will be an excellent captaincy choice for the Dream11 team.

MNR vs WEF Risky Captaincy Choices:
The West Indies big-hitter is yet to make a big impact with both bat and ball in this tournament so far. He scored 29 runs off 20 balls and took a wicket in the first match but has managed to score only 21 runs and failed to take any wicket in the last two matches.
The South African youngster smashed 72 runs against England in the first T20I match last month but has struggled for consistency since then. In the last five matches, Stubbs has managed to score 75 runs, including a 27-run cameo against the Rockets in the last match.
Players you should avoid:
The veteran English batter has scored over 20000 runs in the domestic circuit and smashed 43 runs in the opening match against the Superchargers. But scored only nine runs in the second match and didn’t get a chance to bat in the last match.
