Winner takes it all in the crucial contest

Must have players

 

AB de Villiers

The versatile batsman has come back with a half-century in his return to the T20 Blast after a break. Before the break, he had scored 253 runs from 5 matches which includes three half-centuries. Now with the side in a must-win situation, in every chance he will continue the good form that he is known for.

 

Babar Azam

There seems to be no stopping the Somerset opener in the season. He has scored 578 runs from 12 matches played so far. Apart from 3 matches, he has scored 30+ score on every instance in the remaining matches. His consistency makes him the most sought after player in today’s match.

 

Steven Finn

He is the leading wicket-taker for Middlesex in the season with 19 wickets from 12 matches. In the last 3 matches, he may not have been at his best where he bagged only a couple wickets but he still holds the key for Middlesex’s bowling unit.
