HEA vs STR Dream11 Captaincy Picks

1. Rashid Khan (9.5 credits) – the Afghan legend hasn’t been at his best but has taken 14 wickets in the BBL 2021-22 so far with an economy rate of 6.55. He is Strikers’ top wicket-taker and also their most miserly bowling option.

2. Matthew Short (9.5 credits) – Short has been one of the stand-out batters in a struggling Strikers’ batting unit. He has made 265 runs from his 10 innings at a strike-rate of 158.68.

3. Mujeeb-ur-Rahman (8.5 credits) – Rahman is the best of the available bowling options for Brisbane Heat. The Afghanistan mystery spinner has bagged 7 wickets in the competition so far with an economy rate of 6.30.

HEA vs STR Dream11 Budget Picks

1. David Grant (8.5 credits) – Grant bowled a miserly spell of 0/28 off his 4 overs in Heat’s loss against the Hurricanes last match. He took three wickets in the game before and now has an economy rate of just 6 for the tournament from his two outings.

2. Will Prestwidge (8.5 credits) – Prestwidge proved a touch expensive in the last game but ended up taking wickets as well. The Brisbane Heat pacer will be hoping to add more scalps to his kitty in the coming games.

3. Lachlan Pfeffer (8.5 credits) – He was Heat’s stand-out batter in the last match against the Hurricanes’ scoring a brilliant 69 out of his team’s 144/8.
