Probable Best Batter of the Match

Stephen Eskinazi – Welsh Fire

Stephen Eskinazi played a brutal knock in the previous match against Birmingham Phoenix as he got 43 runs off just 18 balls which featured six fours and two sixes. The batter will look to play another vital knock coming in the top order which could help his side stay ahead in the contest.

Shaheen Afridi holds the potential to rip through the rival batting order with ease. Though he got just one wicket in the previous match, Shaheen will look to land the early blows against Southern Brave and add wickets under his belt.
