Probable Playing XI
Maratha Arabians wouldn’t be making any changes to their side after a convincing win over Team Abu Dhabi. Chris Lynn will open the batting with Adam Lth while the likes of Walton and Najibullah provide the impetus towards the end. Their bowling unit is one to watch out for with Lasith Malinga leading the pack well with his experience. Shanaka and Hasaranga are expected to fill in the fifth bowler’s quota with Bravo’s spell also being crucial
Chris Lynn, Yuvraj Singh, Adam Lyth, Chadwick Walton, Najibullah Zadran, Dwayne Bravo, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenaghan, Shiraz Ahmed and Dasun Shanaka
The Qalandars are sweating over the fitness of Tom Banton and Chris Jordan, who didn’t feature in the previous game. In spite of their inavailability, the likes of George Garton and Tom Kohler-Cadmore were right on the money against the Delhi Bulls. Much is expected from Dawid Malan and Phil Salt, who has shown glimpses of what he is capable. Mujeeb and Lahiru Kumara will also be key with Prasanna adding balance to the side.
