BAL vs CEP Team Wicket-Keeper
Kamran Akmal (Price 9) and Bismillah Khan (Price 8.5) will be our wicket-keeper. Akmal is a T20 veteran and he scored a brilliant half-century in the first game of the tournament. He is not in a really good touch but should be picked whereas Khan has scored 113 runs in three innings so far and will bat in the top-order. Both of them are really good players.
BAL vs CEP Team Batsmen
Abdullah Shafiq (Price 8.5) and Abid Ali (Price 9) will be our all-batsmen from Central Punjab. Shafiq is a young batsman and scored a brilliant century on the first day of the tournament whereas Ali has also been opening the innings for his side and has scored 92 runs in the last couple of innings. Both of them are good run-scorers.
Imam ul Haq (Price 9.5) and Awais Zia (Price 9) will be our batsmen from Balochistan. Imam played a brilliant knock of 94 runs in the last game and would like to pounce upon that form, he is an international level player whereas Zia will also open the innings for his side and has scored 59 runs in the tournament. He is not in a really good form but is a decent enough batsman. Both of them would like to give their team a good start in this game.
BAL vs CEP Team All-Rounders
Haris Sohail (Price 9.5) and Amad Butt (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from Balochistan.
