Hong Kong Top Picks
Babar Hayat, right-handed batsman of the Hong Kong team, was on fire with his 108 run innings off 94 balls against Singapore recently. But he couldn’t follow it up with a similar performance in the last game against UAE where he only scored 5 runs off 8 balls. Even so, his skill and potential to turn around a match will definitely give an edge to Hong Kong’s success in future matches.
Representing Hong Kong, the off-break bowler has been crucial to the squad’s success, taking two wickets against the UAE and four wickets against Singapore while conceding only 23 and 24 runs respectively. He will be a good pick for your fantasy teams.
Aizaz is an accomplished cricketer who bats and bowls both right handed. His recent performances have been very impressive; against the UAE, he scored 27 runs in 24 balls as well as taking one wicket while giving away 19 runs. Additionally, against Singapore he picked up 1 wicket while conceding only 17 runs.
Kuwait Top Picks
An impressive left-handed hitter, this young player from Kuwait recently scored 54 runs off just 59 balls in his second match against Bahrain. His contribution to the team’s success is certain to increase in the future.
Sayed, a right-arm bowler, has achieved 5 wickets in the competition thus far and has also caused 171 runs. His batting skills were displayed in his match against the UAE wherein he scored 68 runs off 36 balls thereby completing a half-century.
M Aslam is a tremendous asset to his team with his diverse set of skills. He bats right-handed and bowls slow left-arm deliveries. His excellent performance in the recent match against Singapore saw him take 5 wickets and only give up 20 runs, helping the team secure a win.
