AF-U19 vs PK-U19 Dream11 Bowlers
A.Khan (Price 8) and A.Afridi (Price 9.5) will be the pace bowling duo from Pakistan in our squad. Aamir took a 5-wicket hall in the last game against the Bangladeshi side whereas Abbas has been the ever consistent bowler for Pakistan. These both will be ruthless on this surface.
N.Ahmad (Price 8.5) and F.Haq (Price 8.5) will complete our line-up. Ahmad is a china-men bowler which is a very rare breed and he has been effective too in the wicket column whereas Fazal is a brilliant pace bowler and will be a good pick on this track.
[Strength of both the teams is their bowling line-up and hence, bowlers are preferred over batsman in the line-up
Match Prediction: This match promises to be a very tightly contested game as both the teams are equally good. This will be a tough call but we are picking Afghanistan U19 to be the favourites in this game.
