Top pick from Pakistan

Shadab Khan

  • Allrounder
  • He should bowl his full quota of overs, as he is the captain of the team.

Imad Wasim

  • Excellent batting form.
  • He can provide good value with the ball, as Afghanistan have too many right-handers.
  • His bowling upside will be better if Mohammad Nawaz misses this game.


  • He should get a full quota of overs.
  • He always looks to take wickets, having an attacking mindset as a bowler.

Mohammad Haris

  • He got the start in the last game, but he couldn’t convert it.
  • Good form with the bat.
  • He can keep if Pakistan decides to drop Azam Khan from this game.

Top Picks from Afghanistan

Rashid Khan

  • Only a few Pakistani batters are picking him well.
  • He will be lethal against this young Pakistan batting lineup.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

  • Wicket keeping points
  • He played a good, cautious innings in the last game.

FazalHaq Farooqi

  • Full quota of overs
  • He is bowling two overs with the new ball and two overs at the death.

Najibullah Zadran

  • He will be facing a leg spinner and a left-arm unorthodox bowler in the middle, which will be a great boost for him.
  • In form.

Differential Picks

Saim Ayub

  • Despite two lackluster performances in his last two games, Ayub’s overall form is strong.
  • He can be picked as a differential player due to the lack of reliable options in the batting section.

Usman Ghani

  • He had a great BPL season.
  • Good player of spin
  • Lack of option in batting section

Zaman Khan

  • He will bowl at the death overs and will be effective if Pakistan bowls first.
