Team News:

Durham

With 368 runs and 9 wickets in as many matches, D Arcy Short is one player that probably no fantasy team can overlook, and would be a no-brainer to hand him the captaincy. Peter Handscomb, though he has not been able to play all the matches, he averages 47 in 6 matches. Matty Potts has picked up 13 wicket in 9 matches, while Liam Trevaskis and  have 10 each to their name.

Yorkshire

It hasn’t been a good tournament for them so far. They would want their captain, Tom Kohler-Cadmore to step up at the back end of the tournament. Players like David Willey and Tim Bresnan will also be expecting to do good after a poor tournament so far. Their highest wicket taker in the tournament has been Duanne Oliver with six wickets.
