Pitch Report

Although the pitch is expected to be on the slower side, there should be some runs on offer for the batters. While the pacers will get some swing early on, they will ideally look to take the pace off the ball as the match progresses. Powerplay overs will be key with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 130 being par at the venue.


Today's BPH vs OVI Dream11 match top picks

Wicket-keeper

Sam Billings: Oval Invincibles captain Sam Billings has been in decent form with a couple of match-winning knocks to his name already. With the pitch on the slower side and Billings being a decent player of spin, he is a must-have in your BPH vs OVI Dream11 team.

Batsmen

Jason Roy: Unlike his captain, Jason Roy has failed to get going for most of The Hundred so far. But given his explosive ability at the top of the order, you wouldn't want to miss out on Roy.

Finn Allen: Similar to Roy, Finn Allen has also shown glimpses of his attacking gameplay without making a huge impact. A big knock is due for the New Zealand international, making him one to watch out for in today's game.

All-rounders

Liam Livingstone: Star all-rounder Liam Livingstone has been in fine form with the bat this summer. Capable of holding his own with the ball as well, Livingstone is a must-have in your BPH vs OVI Dream11 team.

Bowlers

Imran Tahir: South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir hasn't picked up too many wickets in The Hundred so far. However, Tahir has experience on his side, which can be banked upon to deliver some points for your fantasy team.

Tom Curran: Tom Curran has been the Oval Invincibles' best bowler with his three-wicket haul in the previous game helping his side to a much-needed win. Adept at bowling in the death, Curran should ideally pick up a wicket or two and is bound to be a popular selection for today's BPH vs OVI fantasy teams.
