Adam Rossington has been one of the most explosive batters in the competition with a strike rate of 185.88. He has a couple of thirty-plus scores to his name, taking on the bowling in the powerplay phase. While Matthew Wade is a decent option too, Rossington stands out in this department.

Will Smeed is Birmingham Phoenix's top run-scorer this season with 178 runs in seven matches. He has been in decent form in the last two matches, scoring 54 runs at a strike rate of 180. With Smeed due a big knock, he is a top pick for your LNS vs BPH Dream11 fantasy team.

Jordan Thompson has been one of the standout bowlers in The Hundred with 12 wickets at an average of 16.00. He has also added value with the bat, scoring 27 (19) in the previous game. With form on his side, Thompson is a must-have in your LNS vs BPH Dream11 fantasy team.
Top Bowler Pick
Nathan Ellis (7 matches, 5 wickets)
Nathan Ellis is one of the better death bowlers, conceding just 1.3 runs per ball in The Hundred. Although he has only picked up five wickets, his ability to take wickets in death overs sets him apart.
