Shan Masood, Hussain Talat, Haris Rauf, Haider Ali, and Sohaib Maqsood.
NOR vs SOP Team Wicket-Keeper
Zeeshan Ashraf (Price 8.5) will be our wicket-keeper. Ashraf has played a lot of T20 matches in his career and he is a really good opener as well. There is no competition for him in this category.
NOR vs SOP Team Batsmen
Haider Ali (Price 9.5) and Zeeshan Malik (Price 8) will be our all-batsmen from Northern. Ali is the most exciting prospect of Pakistan at the moment and he played an outstanding knock of 90 runs in the last game whereas Zeeshan is yet another youngster and he also scored a brilliant knock of 77 runs. Both of them will open the innings together and are genuine run-scorers.
Shan Masood (Price 10) and Sohaib Maqsood (Price 9.5) will be our batsmen from Southern Punjab. Masood is a classical player and does not throw his wicket away due to his solid technique. Shan scored a brilliant half-century in the last game as well and has proved his class whereas Maqsood is a player with over 2000 T20 runs and he also played a brilliant knock of 51 runs in the last game. Both of them are really good players.
NOR vs SOP Team All-Rounders
Shadab Khan (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounder from Northern. Shadab is one of the best athletes of the Pakistani team. He is a genuine wicket-taker in his leg-spin whereas he is a brilliant batsman as well. He failed in the last game but will be a really good pick in this game as well.
Hussain Talat (Price 9.5) and Aamer Yamin (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from Southern Punjab. Talat is a really good batting all-rounder and has a really good T20 career, he scored 34 runs in the last game and picked a wicket as well whereas Yamin is another talented all-rounder and picked a couple of wickets in bowling plus he is a good hitter of the ball. Both of them are really talented all-rounder.
NOR vs SOP Team Bowlers
Haris Rauf (Price 9) and Musa Khan (Price 8) will be our bowlers from Northern. Rauf proved his class in the last Big-Bash season and he picked a wicket in the first game of the tournament as well whereas Musa Khan is yet another talented fast bowler and he picked three wickets in the last game. Both of them are genuine wicket-takers.
Mohammad Irfan (Price 9) will be our bowler from Southern Punjab. Irfan is a t20 veteran and has picked 147 wickets in 139 games and his height will definitely be a problem for the batters. He failed in the last game but can be a good threat in this game.
