SHJ vs GUL, Match 30: Top Five Picks

  1. Tom Kohler-Cadmore (SHJ): Sharjah Warriors player Tom Kohler-Cadmore is way ahead of his teammates in scoring runs. He is the leading run-getter with an average of 41.57 in 8 innings.
  2. Dawid Malan (SHJ): England international Dawid Malan is averaging 8.83 in 6 innings, with the highest score of 18. The left-handed batter is due for a big knock as he looks to get one in this fixture.
  3. James Vince (GUL): Gulf Giants captain James Vince is the highest run-getter in ILT20 2023. With an average of 49.00 and 3 half-centuries, Vince is a worthy option for this contest.
  4. Chris Lynn (GUL): Hard-hitting Australian Chris Lynn has scored just one fifty in 5 innings as he hopes to get a few more under his belt before the playoffs begin. The right-handed Aussie looks like a good option for this game.
  5. David Wiese (GUL): Giants all-rounder David Wiese has picked up ten wickets and is the second-highest wicket-taker in this competition. The tall Namibian could be a safe bet for this fixture.
