Main Pacers: Naveen Ul Haq and Fazal Haq (A Omarzai will assist them)

Death overs: Naveen Ul Haq and Fazal Haq

Important Picks in the Small Leagues: 

  1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz:  Afghanistani opener is hit or miss type of player but he was looking in good nick against Ireland(26, 1, 53, 24, 4). He becomes a good pick in your fantasy team as he provides backup with his wicket keeping skill as well.
  2. Najibullah Zadran: Southpaw is the most talented batter of this Afghanistan team and this is the best suited format for him. He has made 1487 runs with terrific average of 33.34 and with impressive strike rate of 141.75.  Southpaw will bat at number 4 and his consistency makes him must have pick in your dream11 team.
  3. Mohammad Nabi: Afghanistani all rounder is one of the impactful performer of this team. He will contribute with both bat and ball although in the last series, he was not looking in good touch but he will remain an important pick in your dream11 team and a good captaincy choice material as well.
  4. Rashid Khan: He is one of the world best spinner of this format and if Afghanistan has to left any impact in such multi nation tournament then Rashid Khan has to be in his red hot form and his spell of four overs will decide in which way match will go. He will be one of the choices of captaincy in your fantasy team
  5. Naveen Ul Haq: He is one the best bowler of this Afghanistan team. Afghanistani pacer is all set to bowl in death overs as he used to deceive the batters with his slower one and cutters in slog overs. He will be good pick in your team, as in death overs there are high chances of taking wickets.
  6. Fazal Haq Farooqi: Young rising pacer is the most impressive bowler of current generation. In initial overs, he has the ability to swing the ball both ways and has all the capability to bowl in death overs as well. If there will be any swing on offer from the pitch then he can trouble batters in initial over and in death overs, he can bowl wicket taking deliveries like Yorkers, cutters and change of pace. He will be a good choice in your dream11 team and can make him grand league captain in one of your team.

Trump Card Picks:

  1. Mujeeb Ur Rahman
  2. Hazratullah Zazai

Sri Lanka Team Preview:
They generally remain inconsistent in the T20Is. They will miss the services of their star pacer Dushmantha Chameera.

Top Picks in the Small Leagues:

  • P Nissanka: Young talented Srilankan bowler is technically solid batter. Sri Lankan opener can pace his inning according to the situation and recently has played good knocks against strong Australian attack. He will be good choice in your dream11 team.
  • K Mendis: Srilankan batter is most talked player of his nation but at International level, he has failed to justify his talent. Till now, he has very poor record in T20I cricket but recently given some impactful performance against strong Australian pace attack in home series. 
  • C Asalanka: Southpaw is very fine batter and has all the ability to score runs against any opponent. He was looking in good nick during Australia series and will be a good choice in your dream11 team.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga: Srilankan spinner is one of the promising bowler this Srilankan attack. He is a wicket taker bowler and had impressed everyone with his performance in IPL. Lower down the order, he can contribute with his batting as well. He will be good captaincy choice in your fantasy team.
  • M Theekshana: Mystery spinner M Theekshana has impressed everyone with his performance. He used to bowl carrom ball a lot. he will be good choice in your team.
  • Chameeka Karunaratne: Srilankan All rounder may or may not get his full quota of overs, but he can provide crucial points with his batting skill. In bowling department if he will be able to bowl his first 2 overs on good line length then there will be high chances that he will bowl in slog overs, otherwise his overs will be completed by Dasun Shanaka. Because of his batting skill, he becomes a good choice for you in fantasy.
