In the absence of overseas players like James Vince and Rilee Rossouw– both of whom have returned to their respective countries- the onus of spearheading the batting-unit will be on openers Rohail Nazir and Zeeshan Ashraf, who is fresh off from a whirlwind half-century [52 off 39 balls] against Zalmi in the last game.
Moeen Ali and Ravi Bopara did not have a good outing with the bat in the last game and in the absence of Rossouw, the onus will be on the duo to bring their experience to the table- with both bat and ball. Khushdil Shah’s late blitz [30* off 20 balls] turned out to be the difference in the last game and Multan will be hoping for an encore from the all-rounder.
As far as bowling is concerned, Sohai Tanvir will once again lead the fast-bowling unit along with Ali Shafiq- both of whom were instrumental in Multan defending their total in the last game- while the spin department will be lead by seasoned campaigners in Imran Tahir and Shahid Afridi.
Probable XI: Zeeshan Ashraf (WK), Rohail Nazir, Moeen Ali, Shan Masood (C), Ravi Bopara, Khushdil Shah, Shahid Afridi, Imran Tahir, Ali Shafiq, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Irfan
Each of the Qalandars top-4- Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar, Chris Lynn, and Ben Dunk- have notched up a 50+ score in their past three fixtures. The quartet will once again serve as the bedrock of their batting unit.
Mohammad Hafeez and Samt Patel will be crucial in the middle-overs with the bat as well as with the ball. As far as bowling is concerned, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Dilbar Hussain will lead the pacers department.
Probable XI: Fakhar Zaman, Chris Lynn, Mohammad Hafeez, Ben Dunk (wk), Sohail Akhtar (c), Samit Patel, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi, Dilbar Hussain, Haris Rauf, Maaz Khan
