In the bowling department, Tanveer Sangha has scalped eight wickets, whereas Nathan McAndrew and Saqib Mahmood have scalped four wickets each.
Probable XI: Alex Hales, Matthew Gilkes, Jason Sangha, Sam Billings, Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Tanveer Sangha, Nathan McAndrew, Saqib Mahmood.
