Dream11 Prediction

Both these teams are looking good at the moment and they are getting back to their peak form with victories. But they will also have to deal with some significant concerns. Oval Invincibles have a terrific bowling attack and it has been in a good nick. They are posing a big challenge for the hosts. But Superchargers is a well-balanced team and has a good batting line-up. All-in-all we feel Oval Invincibles are more likely to win this game.
