But in terms of the bowling department and considering the variety of options that they have in their overseas stars, Oval Invincibles have a slight edge over the Manchester Originals.

Players who are expected to perform well as per OVI vs MNR Dream11 Prediction.
Jason Roy: The South African-born opener will be key to Oval’s chances in this match. He is an out-and-out entertainer and is expected to go berzerk in the Keenigston Oval tonight.
Jos Buttler: The Manchester captain is one of the legends of the shortest format of the game. He is expected to rule the Hundred with his own style of unconventional shots. He is a safe bet for most runs in this match along with Roy.
Tom Curran: He is an expert when it comes to mixing up the variations to strive in the shortest format of the game. His slow balls and cutters are bound to reward him with plenty of wickets in the death overs.
Lockie Ferguson: He is the star bowler for the visitors. He can hit the deck with brute pace and can uproot the stumps with his pace alone. He is a very underrated bowler in the shortest format of the game.
