The second semi-finals of the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 is scheduled between Derbyshire and Essex. Here are the Dream 11 Predictions and tips for other fantasy cricket games-

Match Details:

The second semi-finals of the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 between Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire will take place at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Saturday at 01:30 pm GMT.

Predicted Playing XI


Luis Reece, Billy Godleman (c), Wayne Madsen, Leus du Plooy, Alex Hughes, Matthew Critchley, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Daryn Smit (wk), Logan van Beek, Anuj Dal, Ravi Rampaul


Tom Westley, Cameron Delport, Adam Weather (wk), Daniel Lawrence, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara, Paul Walter, Simon Harmer (c), Aaron Beard, James Porter, Adam Zampa

Team News:

Mohamad Amir and Adam Zampa are unavailable for Essex, who have only Bopara with an economy rate of less than nine. This is worrying signs for Essex and the Derbyshire batsmen would want to make the most of it.

Top Picks:


Wayne Madsen and Billy Godleman are the highest scorers in the tournament among the teams in the semi-finals with 447 and 444 runs respectively in 13 matches each. Derbyshire also have the highest wicket-taker in the tournament in the form of Ravi Rampaul who has picked up 22 wickets so far.


Cameron Delport is Essex’s highest run scorer with 353 runs in 13 matches. But all eyes will be on the experienced duo of Ravi Bopara and Ryan ten Doeschate, both of whom can be handed captaincy in fantasy games.

Captaincy picks: Ravi Bopara, Ryan ten Doeschate, Wayne Madsen, Billy Godleman, Ravi Rampaul
