Not once has Fakhar Zaman failed against Multan this season. In three games, his scores read 76 off 35, 60 off 37, and 63 off 45. Overall, he has fetched 585 runs at 49, sitting comfortably at the top of the runs chart.
At No. 2 is Mohammad Rizwan. His 532 runs have come at a stunning average of 76. More importantly, he has scored four consecutive fifties.
Shan Masood’s second-highest score (83) of the season came against Lahore, eventually winning the Player of the Match award in a successful chase of 207 runs. He, however, couldn’t fire in the qualifiers, scoring 6 runs in 2 games.
Shaheen Afridi has taken 5 wickets in 3 games against Multan. With a total of 17 wickets, he is the second-highest wicket-taker of the season.
For Multan, the warhorse Imran Tahir has taken the bulk of the wickets. He, however, has been ineffective against Lahore, taking only 2 of his overall 16 wickets in the season.
Shahnawaz Dahani was adjudged the Player of the Match for his match-winning bowling figures of 3 for 19 in the Qualifier last week. Overall, he has bagged 16 wickets at an impressive strike rate of 12.3.
After an inconsistent start to the tournament, Rilee Rossouw has finally found his feet. He has scored three fifties in his last six innings – 65* of 42 being the best against Lahore last week.
Khushdil Shah and Mohammad Hafeez have been handy picks in fantasy cricket, providing vital points with both bat and ball.
