NOS vs OVI, The Hundred Men's, Match 13
Date and Time: 31st July 2021, at 11:00 PM IST
Venue: Headingley, Leeds
A high-scoring game beckons at Headingley with not much help on offer for the bowlers. Although there should be a hint of swing available for the pacers early on, the batters will look to go on the attack from ball one. The spinners will need to vary their pace accordingly to get the most out of this surface. Both teams will look to bat first with this being the second game of the day at this venue. Although 130 should be a good total, both teams have the firepower to go above and beyond.
Today's NOS vs OVI Dream11 match top picks
Sam Billings: Oval Invincibles captain Sam Billings was the star of the show in their only completed game in The Hundred. With an eye for a boundary towards the backend of the innings, Billings is the ideal option to have in the wicket-keeper's slot.
Jason Roy: England international Jason Roy looked iffy in his first The Hundred outing for the Invincibles. However, Roy is too good a player to be kept down for long. Expect Roy to deliver some big runs at the top of the order.
Harry Brook: Young Harry Brook has been one of the standout batters in the competition so far. With Brook looking equally comfortable against pace and spin, he is sure to be a popular pick in today's NOS vs OVI Dream11 team.
David Willey: In the absence of Ben Stokes, the onus falls on David Willey to fill his shoes with both the bat and ball. Given his ability to score quick runs and pick up wickets with the new ball, he is sure to have an impact on this game.
Tom Curran: Tom Curran had a brilliant game to start his The Hundred campaign with figures of 1 for 25 in his 20 balls against the Originals. With his brother Sam making the Test squad, Tom will be key for the Invincibles if they are to get something out of this game.
Adil Rashid: Although England leggie Adil Rashid was amongst the wickets in his previous game, the Superchargers couldn't get over the line. With Rashid having ample experience playing at Headingley, he is a must-have in your NOS vs OVI Dream11 fantasy team.
