T20 Blast 2020: Middlesex vs Surrey – Fantasy Tips
They have been brilliant in their last couple of games. Will Jacks is performing on a consistent basis while the captain Batty is showing his class. With the bat, once again, it will be Will Jacks, who will be holding the key alongside Hashim Amla and Rory Burns. The addition of Liam Plunkett is an added energy.
They had a disappointing tour so far. The likes of Max Holden and Eskinazi will enter the contest as hot favourites while Davies and Simpson will be the players to watch out in the middle-overs. They have fine bowling attack with Finn taking the charge alongside Tom Helm.
