5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Jason Roy, Colin Ingram, Shadab Khan, Umar Akmal, and Colin Munro.
Dream XI Wicket-Keepers
Luke Ronchi (Price 9) will be our keeper in the squad as he will most probably play as an opener and has a very good record playing for the Islamabad side. He was the 2nd highest run-scorer for Islamabad last season and would be raring to go this season as player-mentor.
Dream XI Batsmen
The Quetta batting trio of Shane Watson (Price 10.5), and Jason Roy (Price 9.5) will be in our side. Shane Watson was the highest run-scorer of the last season and would like to make an impact in this season too. Jason Roy is one of the best white-ball cricketers available and will be looking to make his mark in PSL.
The Islamabad’s batting duo of Colin Munro (Price 9.5) and Colin Ingram (Price 9) will complete our batting section. Ingram has shifted his base from Karachi to Islamabad and will be looking to replicate his form. He was the 4th highest run-scorer of the last season and would like to improve his performance. Colin Munro is one of the best T20 batsmen and is coming on the back of a very good domestic form and is a run-away T20 match-winner.
Dream XI All-Rounders
Shadab Khan (Price 9), Ben Cutting (Price 9) and Mohammad Nawaz (Price 8.5) will be in our all-rounder category. Nawaz was in the list of top-10 highest wicket-taker in the last season and can be an asset with the bat too. Shadab’s journey is one to remember, he was in emerging player category in 2017 and now he is the captain of the side. Shadab is a genuine wicket-taker and has the ability to hit some runs with the bat too. Ben Cutting is also a genuine T20 match winner and will be ready to go.
Dream XI Bowlers
Fawad Ahmed (Price 9) and Mohammad Hasnain (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from Quetta. Fawad is a proven match-winner in T20 cricket. His record in Big-Bash is insane and the tracks of Karachi will suit him whereas Hasnain took 12 wickets in 7 games last season and will be their main bowler in the powerplay.
Amad Butt (Price 8.5) will be our pick from the Islamabad side. He is picked by more than 75% people and will be a safe pick in the small league matches.
Quetta Gladiators will be the favourite to win this game as they have a superior side atleast on the paper and will be looking to start their title retention on a good note.
