PAK-ET vs BD-ET, Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019 Final: Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Team and Weather Conditions


Pakistan and Bangladesh square off in the final of the Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019 on Saturday. Both teams have been utterly sensational heading into the final. Bangladesh had a relatively easier route to the final courtesy of a seven-wicket over Afghanistan in the semi-final. This wasn’t the case with the Pakistan side though. They had to overcome a stubborn India side with the margin of victory being just three runs. Nevertheless, the previous form counts for nothing in such high-octane games. On paper, both teams have some experience in their ranks and are evenly matched. This should pave the way for a very competitive game worthy of a final.

Probable Playing XI


Pakistan wouldn’t be tinkering with a successful combination after a brilliant win over India. Their top order has been in good touch with Haider Ali and Rohail Nazar scoring 192 and 189 runs respectively. The presence of Khushdil Shah in the middle order bodes well for the side with the all-rounder accounting for a few wickets as well. Their bowling attack, led by Mohammad Hasnain, is their stronger suit and will be key against Bangladesh.
Omair Yousuf, Haider Ali, Rohail Nazir, Saud Shakeel, Saif Badar, Imran Rafiq, Khushdil Shah, Amad Butt, Umer Khan, Akif Javed and Mohammad Hasnain.


Bangladesh should also field an unchanged side for this game. Soumya Sarkar has been sensational for the home side with runs galore at the top of the order. Along with Shanto and Naim, Sarkar has consistently given a good start. Their bowling unit has stepped up nicely with Sumon Khan leading the wicket-takers charts with 11 wickets in just four outings. Bangladesh will consider themselves as the favourites with the home conditions also going in their favour.
Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Nazmul Shanto, Yasir Ali, Afif Hossain, Zakir Hasan, Mahidul Islam, Hasan Mahmud, Tanvir Islam, Sumon Khan and Mahedi Hasan.

Top Picks:

Both captains, Rohail Nazar and Nazmul Shanto have led the side from the front. Nazmul Shanto is the highest run-scorer so far with 234 runs and looks good for more in the top order. Along with the aforementioned duo, Soumya Sarkar is also a must-have in the side. Along with his tally of 229 runs, he has five wickets to his name as well. This makes him a worth-while candidate in the fantasy team. Similarly, Khushdil Shah, who recently made his T20I debut is also one to keep an eye on. With seven wickets and 99 runs, Khushdil provides balance to the Pakistan side and earn fantasy points as well. Mohammad Hasnain and Sumon Khan should continue their fine form in this match as well as they are ideally picked in the fantasy team.
