The star all-rounder scored the highest 348 runs in 9 matches last season, 116 runs more than the second-highest leading run-scorer, Ben Duckett. He also contributed 5 wickets last year and will be a perfect captaincy choice in this fixture.
Top Picks – All-Rounders

The star Australian pacer was in good form in the Vitality Blast tournament and will be eager to make a similar impact in The Hundred as well. But he has no experience of playing in The Hundred and can be a risky choice for the captaincy role.
Players you should avoid:
The English pacer missed the last season with an injury and is struggling for consistency in the last few matches.
