Today’s GICB vs SSCS Dream11 match top picks
Julian Sylvester: Julian Sylvester was the star of the show for the Sulphur City Stars in the previous game, scoring some quick runs at the top of the order. He is known for his aggressive style of batting and given his form, he is a must-have in your GICB vs SSCS Dream11 fantasy team.
Ashley Hippoltye: Ashley Hippoltye is a decent batter who has the ability to take on both spinners and pacers. Although he didn't score many runs in the previous game, he has ample experience to fall back on, holding him in good stead ahead of the game.
Tarrique Edward: The Gros Islet Cannon Blasters captain Tarrique Edward was the lone warrior in the previous game, impressing with both the bat and ball. While he remains the key with the ball in the powerplay overs, Tarrique is likely to bat higher up the order in this game. Given his skill-set, Tarrique is a good addition to your GICB vs SSCS Dream11 fantasy team.
Dornan Edward: Alongside Tarrique, Dornan Edward also played a decent hand with the bat, albeit in a losing cause. However, his ability with both the bat and ball should serve his side well with the conditions playing into his hands. With Dornan due for a big performance, he is one to watch out for in this game.
