Head to Head/Small League
In the small league, the expected playing XI consisting of the best players should be chosen. And as such, assembling the best individuals to ensure maximum quality in all departments will be the right thing to do.
Experimental lineups should be put out for this and since both teams could look to shuffle the pack a little.
Debarchan Dash: Debarchan Dash began the campaign on the strongest foot possible. He missed out on a century by just nine runs and was unfortunately run out at 91 against Gothenburg CC.
Naser Baluch: Naser Baluch is an interesting all-rounder. He has scored 66 runs and picked up 7 scalps in just 5 games. Baluch has started this tournament well and has scored 67 runs beside picking up wickets.
Bashir Ahmed: Bashir Ahmed will be an important pick for the wicket-keeper slot. He has already scored a half-century in the tournament and has 82 runs from two innings.
Hamed Arabzai: Hamed Arabzai is an enigma. He’s a decent batsman who has done fairly well in the tournament so far and can also prove to be an important bowler that can take wickets at intervals.
Captain: Debarchan Dash and Naser Baluch
Dash has been one of the best players in the tournament, having scored 121 runs and picked up a wicket in just a couple of games. Naser Baluch has also picked up two wickets besides adding 67 runs with the bat in the two matches so far.
Vice Captains: Bashir Ahmed and Hamed Arabzai
Bashir Ahmed is a reliable and consistent performer for his side. Hamed Arabzai could prove to be a major surprise pick for this game.
Malyar Babak: Malyar Babak is one of the best bowlers between both the teams and would be expected to do well. He is available for just 8.5 credits.
Bashir Ahmed: Bashir is a decent batsman and wicket-keeper who can prove to be an important utility pick at just 9 credits.
Zamin Zazai: Zamin could prove to be one of the best players on the pitch and he’s easily affordable at just 8.5 credits, making him a must-have pick.
