Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne
A good batting track beckons at the MCG with ample help on offer for the bowlers. The pacers might not get much swing early on, something which the batters will look to make the most of in the powerplay overs. As the match progresses, the spinners will come into play, with the faster bowlers also likely to take the pace off towards the backend of the innings. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 270-280 being a good total at the venue.
Today’s VCT vs NSW Dream11 match top picks
Matt Gilkes: Matt Gilkes is one of the brightest talents in the NSW set-up, with his ability to play big knocks being a trademark. Although he may bat lower down the order, Gilkes is a handy option to have over Sam Harper in your VCT vs NSW Dream11 fantasy team.
Nic Maddinson: Nic Maddinson scored a hundred against New South Wales in the corresponding fixture in the Sheffield Shield. He is well and truly capable of replicating the same form in the shorter format, making him one to watch out for in this game.
Will Sutherland: Will Sutherland has been a consistent performer for Victoria over the last few seasons, with his death bowling being a key asset. Adding in his batting prowess only adds value to his case for inclusion in your VCT vs NSW Dream11 fantasy team.
Ben Dwarshuis: Ben Dwarshuis is another bowler who has done well in recent years for both New South Wales and the Sydney Sixers. His ability to swing the new ball makes him a valuable asset to any team and should pick up a wicket or two in this game.
