Fantasy Tips of The Day
Sarfaraz Ahmed has scored 303 runs at 33.7 against Lahore. He has also earned useful points for seven dismissals.
Mohammad Nawaz has used his dual skills to good effect against Lahore. He averages 23.9 with the bat and has taken 10 wickets including the best figures of 2 for 4.
Fakhar Zaman enjoys batting against Quetta – 410 runs at 37.3 in 12 innings. He has generated the 50-point bonus in three of the last four such matches.
Haris Rauf has troubled Quetta batters in the past, picking up nine wickets in six matches.
Shaheen Afridi and Rashid Khan have featured in the Best11 in each of the last five matches.
Iftikhar Ahmed has smashed a century and four fifties in 14 T20s in 2023 to aggregate 433 runs at 54. To add to that, he can also earn points with the ball.
Zaman Khan has gone wicketless in only one of the last 14 T20s, and thus features in the Best11 in four of the last five matches.
Jason Roy’s recent numbers – 141 runs in his last eight T20s – are a bit disappointing, but the fact that he scored a century against Lahore last year must boost his confidence.
In the last three games at Karachi, the seamers have picked 67% of the wickets.
