You may pick more bowlers from the team bowling second to stay ahead in the race of fantasy league.

We have opted for a fantasy cricket team based on the recent performances, overall impact, and credit points.
The top three run-scorers of the tournament will star in this match: Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shan Masood. It will be a tough task for the fantasy players to narrow down their choices for captains and vice-captains.
In the last 3 games, Fakhar scored a fifty, a duck, and a run. For someone who hasn’t followed the league this year, Fakhar is someone who blows hot and cold. For an ardent fan of fantasy sports, Fakhar is a favourite pick. Before these three innings, Fakhar had scored a hundred and five fifties in 7 games. With 291.5 points, he is My11Circle’s top fantasy player.
Rizwan and Masood have performed neck and neck with the bat as well as in the field. Despite being a wicketkeeper, Rizwan has taken as many catches (6) as Masood.
4 of the top 5 wicket-takers of the season will take the field. Let’s dig deeper.
Not only has Imran Tahir been among wickets but also managed to maintain an economy of 6.3. His 16 wickets include three three-wicket hauls.
Khushdil Shah has not been any less. His 15 wickets have come at a strike rate of 10.5, which is reasonably better than the warhorse Tahir.
If Multan have a terrific spin duo, Lahore boast of the pace pair of Shaheen Afridi (15 wickets) and Zaman Khan (14 wickets). Both have been striking consistently in the powerplay as well as at the death. They have taken 8 wickets between them against Multan in two games this edition.
Harry Brook has only one single-digit score in 5 innings. His scores read 37, 41*, 26, 102*, and 2. He, however, is yet to bat against Multan.
Mohammad Hafeez has finally struck form. In his last 6 innings, he has one score in the thirties and two in the forties and has taken 2 wickets for 32 runs.
David Wiese has been a safe pick. If not with the bat, he delivers with the ball. To put things into perspective, he finds ways to make amends.
Kamran Ghulam and Tim David have played crucial innings in the middle-order, either steadying the ship or continuing the onslaught.
Multan, ranked No. 1 in the points table, have been a far superior side in the league. They have lost only once in 10 games this season, but to make matters interesting, the only defeat came against Lahore. Although Multan will start as favourites, the loss will be a reminder that cricket is a great leveller.
