Shpageeza Cricket League: BD vs KE Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Team, Pitch Report And Preview


After two entertaining games on Wednesday in the Shpageeza Cricket League, it now comes down to Kabul Eagles and Band-e-Amir Dragons to fight for the second spot in the final. Both sides are well matched on paper with fine margins separating both sides in their previous encounter. Band-e-Amir couldn’t cope against Rahmanullah Gurbaz’ onslaught as none of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman or Fareed Malik was spared. Kabul Eagles do have the advantage with form on their side although Rashid Khan is the key to the outcome of the game with his T20 expertise bound to come into play in Kabul.

Kabul Eagles vs Band-e-Amir Dragons

Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground

October 17th, 2019

10:00 AM IST

Weather Report: 

With this being a morning game, some clouds should make an appearance with no chance of rainfall interrupting the game. The temperature is expected to be around 22 with teams preferring to chase on this surface to avoid the heat later on.

Pitch Report: 

The pitch is a good one to bat on with some turn on offer for the spinners. The powerplay overs are crucial to either side with little to no swing available for the pacers. 170 should be par on this surface provided the bowlers do their bit with the ball.

Predicted Playing XI: 

Kabul Eagles:

Kabul Eagles put in a thoroughly professional performance in the Eliminator with Karim Janat starring with the bat for them. They should once again field the same set of players for this game under the captaincy of Ashgar Afghan. They have a very well balanced side in their midst with Samiullah Shenwari and Hazratullah Zazai yet to fire completely for them. With the international experience of Tendai Chatara boding well with the youth of Waqar Salamkheil and Amir Hamza, they will enter this game as the favourites over Rashid Khan and the Dragons
Hazratullah Zazai, Karim Janat, Ashgar Afghan, Samiullah Shenwari, M Sardar, Tendai Chatara, Amir Hamza, Waqar Salamkheil, Younus Ahmadzai, Abdur Rehman and Y Zazai.

Band-e-Amir Dragons:

Although they ended up on the losing end, Band-e-Amir Dragons shouldn’t be making any changes to their side. Rashid Khan and Javed Ahmadi are key to their fortunes at the top of the order with the powerplay overs setting the tone for the rest of the innings. With the likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman and Afsar Zazai also in their ranks, they will fancy their chances against a formidable Kabul Eagles side on Thursday. Fareed Malik is one to watch out for with the ball in hand as well

Top Picks: 

A century in the previous game saw Karim Janat take his tally to 266 runs at a strike rate of 160.24. Along with another centurion, Javed Ahmed, Janat should do well in the allrounders department. Rashid Khan is another viable candidate with his big game experience being crucial. Although Afsar Zazai bats down the order, he has scored 180 runs as he is picked as the lone wicket-keeper. Ashgar Afghan and Hazratullah Zazai are great options with their ability to score quick runs being crucial. The top wicket taker of SCL 2019, Waqar Salamkheil has picked ten wickets so far and should pick a wicket or two along with Mujeeb ur Rahman and Nijat Masood.

1: Karim Janat

2: Rashid Khan
