Haider and Asif Ali have managed only 161 runs between them, including 13 single-digit dismissals in the last 10 T20Is.
Shaheen Afridi might have gone wicketless against India, but he will remain Pakistan’s biggest trump, especially with the new ball.
Zimbabwe will bank on the experience of Sean Williams. Besides picking 4 wickets in 10 T20Is against Pakistan, he has added 218 runs at 27 with the bat.
Iftikhar Ahmed kept fantasy players happy against India, providing 42.5 crucial points for his impressive 42-ball 52.
Since he arrived in Australia, Blessing Muzarabani has taken 6 wickets in 4 T20s. He will enjoy bowling on the spicy wicket at Perth.
Amidst two single-digit scores, Craig Ervine has also registered a half-century in this World Cup. His ability to hold the innings together often pays dividends in fantasy leagues.
Harris Rauf has been a part of the Ultimate Team on the last three occasions. In 6 T20Is against Zimbabwe, he has taken 10 wickets.
It was a rare failure for Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam in the last game. However, when they last batted in the format against Zimbabwe in 2021, Rizwan slammed two unbeaten fifties. Meanwhile, Babar averaged 32.
Since the start of the World Cup, Sikandar Raza has been a part of the Ultimate Team in all 3 games. Overall, he has garnered 163.5 points and his selection percentage is yet to drop below 90.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
We saw the South African pacers create plenty of issues for the Zimbabwean batters. Like the Proteas, Pakistan also boast of a hostile bowling attack. They are likely to generate a bunch of handy points.
