Venue: Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore
Finally after two games, we saw the chasing side win a game on Saturday in Lahore. That said, in all the three games played at this venue, run making has been easy batting first.
Probable 11 for Lahore: Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Hafeez, Harry Brook, Philip Salt (wk), David Wiesse, Shaheen Afridi (c), Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan
Probable 11 for Quetta: Jason Roy, Ahsan Ali, James Vince, Umar Akmal, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Shahid Afridi, Ifthikar Ahmed, James Faulkner, Noor Ahmed, Naseem Shah, Ghulam Mudassar
We have opted for a fantasy cricket team based on the recent performances, overall impact, and credit points.
Fakhar Zaman has been the best batsman of the tournament thus far with 416 runs in six games. His scores read 60, 70, 38, 66, 106, 76.
In only two games, Jason Roy has stamped his authority on the Pakistan T20 league with scores of 54 and 116. He will continue to open the batting.
Shaheen Afridi has been the best bowler for Lahore with 9 wickets. Not only does he strike with the new ball, but is equally effective at the death overs too.
Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed promoted himself up the order and scored an unbeaten 50 to help his team beat Islamabad yesterday. He was also adjudged the man of the match.
Rashid Khan might have picked up only six wickets till now in as many games, but ignore him at your peril. Rashid has 426 wickets in competitive T20 cricket.
James Faullkner has picked up at least one wicket in every game, but for his outing against Lahore. Please note: H e was the fourth-highest wicket taker in the 2021 edition.
Haris Rauf has bagged 9 wickets in six games till now. He is often seen breaking partnerships in the middle and end overs, which helps in fantasy cricket.
Noor Ahmed showed his ability with the ball in his first ever game of the season. Besides picking up a wicket, he was also quite economical.
Lahore might be ahead of Quetta on the points table. That said, when the two teams met earlier in the tournament, it was Quetta who came out trumps. Quetta are also on a two-match winning streak.
Fantasy Tip of the Day
Don’t stick to one definite strategy while playing fantasy cricket. There is no one size fits all solution to this. Keep experimenting and picking different players for different matches and whichever one works best for you can be your winning fantasy cricket team.
