Go through this Important News section 30 minutes before the deadline. If any further information we shall update that shortly.
- In wicket keeper section Ronchi should be a straight forward pick because he has been in phenomenal form. In last four matches his form was at different level. Sarfraz is also a good option but bats at middle order. Try him in grand league.
- In batting from Quetta Gladiators Roy, Pietersen and Rossouw all three are good. Take any two from them. From Islamabad United Duminy should be a mandatory choice because he can bat and bowl. Hales was amazing in his first match of the season. He continued the same form played against New Zealand. Asif Ali is a good domestic player. Take any two. Roy and Hales are the two opener for England team and today in this match they will face each other. It can be Roy vs Hales.
- In all rounder section from Quetta Gladiators Watson is straight forward pick. Nawaz is other option but he is not his best. Nawaz shone in the first few matches in the first half of the season and there after he hasn’t performed much. From Islamabad United You can take either Hussain Talat or Shadab Khan.
- In bowling section from Quetta Gladiators take anyone from Anwar Ali or Rahat Ali. Hasan Khan and Hamza are other options. From Islamabad United Ashraf and Samit should be mandatory. Butt impressed in his first match so he can repeat the same. Sami is also other good option. Take at least two from them.
