Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Josh Philippe (12 matches, 241 runs, Average: 20.08)
Josh Philippe has blown hot and cold in the BBL this season with only 241 runs in 12 matches. Although he is only averaging 20.08, Philippe is capable of scoring big runs at the top of the order. With Philippe keen to return to run-scoring form before the playoffs, he is a top pick for your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
Top Batter Pick
Ben McDermott (10 matches, 181 runs, SR: 138.17)
Like Josh Philippe, Ben McDermott has had a slightly under-par campaign with 181 runs in 10 matches. Despite his inconsistent form, McDermott has a couple of fifties and a strike rate of 138.17 to his credit. With the conditions suiting his style of play, McDermott is a good addition to your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
Top All-rounder Pick
Hayden Kerr (13 matches, 14 wickets, Average: 27.50)
Hayden Kerr has done well for the Sixers this season, picking up 14 wickets in 13 matches. While he has proven to be a touch expensive at times, Kerr has done well in the Surge and in the death overs. With an average of 27.50 to his name with the ball, Kerr can be backed in your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
Top Bowler Pick
Riley Meredith (12 matches, 19 wickets, Average: 20.89)
Riley Meredith is the Hurricanes' top wicket-taker this season with 19 wickets in 12 matches. Like Kerr, Meredith has also been a touch expensive but his average of 20.89 holds him in good stead. With his hit-the-deck-hard style of bowling bound to have a say at the Bellerive Oval, Meredith is a must-have in your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
HUR vs SIX match captain and vice-captain choices
Matthew Wade has had a decent BBL campaign with 281 runs in 10 matches. He has a few fifties to his name and is a good player of both pace and spin. With Wade capable of scoring big runs in the middle overs, he is a viable captaincy pick for your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
Moises Henriques is one of the most experienced batters in the league, having played in every single BBL season. He has had a decent season so far, scoring 221 runs in 12 innings, including two fifties. Given his prowess against both pace and spin, Henriques should be a fine choice as captain or vice-captain of your HUR vs SIX Dream11 prediction team.
