Team 2:

*Full Risky team for GL

Batters + Wicket-Keeper

If you look at the batting line-up of both sides, with the addition of international superstars, Sydney Thunder looks a formidable line-up with the likes of Buttler, Watson, Ferguson and Root set to up the ante.
From Melbourne Stars, Glenn Maxwell and Ben Dunk will be key. My pick for the batting line-up would be Watson, Buttler, Root and Maxwell.
Buttler will also don the wicket-keeping gloves.

All-rounder

If Sydney boasts of a formidable batting line-up, the Stars have beefed up their all-rounder’s slot by roping in Dwayne Bravo and the omnipresent Marcus Stoinis. They will spearhead the all-rounder’s spot of my Dream11 team as well.
Other Options:- Jason Sangha

Bowlers

Fawad Ahmed has had a great year thus far in T20 cricket, claiming 29 wickets at an average of 14.70. He, along with Lamichhane will lead the spinners department while Sandhu, Beer and Coleman will spearhead the fast bowling department
