Ferisco Adams: Ferisco Adams held his nerves in the death overs, picking up two crucial wickets against the Warriors. The medium pacer will be key for the Rocks yet again with his explosive batting ability also likely to come to the fore in today's game.
Gideon Peters: Gideon Peters had a great start to his CSA T20 Cup 2021 campaign as he picked up two wickets. His accuracy and ability to generate extra pace make him a vital asset to the Eastern Cape set-up and a good addition to your Dream11 fantasy team.
