Lahore Team Preview:

They are looking in very good form in this season also. They have won 2 out of the 3 games. M Hafeez and Fakhar Zaman are looking in very good touch with the bat. They have received a major setback as their star spinner Rashid Khan has gone to his country , Sandeep Lamicchane is named as his replacement.

Probable 11 :

Fakhar Zaman(LHB), Sohail Akhtar (C), Joe Denly(RAL), Mohammad Hafeez(RAO), Ben Dunk, Samit Patel(LAO), David Wiese, Ahmed Daniyal, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Salman Mirza

Samit Patel(LAO) generally bowls against right handers only(as per his captain’s strategies). Opposition team have 2 left handers in the form of Sharjeel Khan and Colin Ingram so he is expected to bowl less overs in this game).
