Top Wicket-Keeper pick

1) Mohammad Rizwan – Due to his offensive stroke play and wicket-keeping skills, Rizwan became a fixture of Pakistan’s limited-overs side, bringing significant balance to the squad’s composition. His gritty yet remarkable skills will be beneficial for the upcoming match.

Matches – 162

Runs – 3783

Average – 39.00

Top 4 Batsman Picks

1) Mohammad Naim – The left-handed batsman uses his hand-eye coordination quite well against the quicks. He is a wise choice in the upcoming match.

Matches – 75

Average – 27.29

2) Mahmudullah – He is a strong right-handed batsman who drives the ball imperiously through the covers and is a asset to his team.

Matches – 265

Average – 25

3) Babar Azam – He is a top-order batter with fluid batting ability and has shown flashes of remarkable stroke-making skill. He played phenomenal innings in his past few matches.

Matches – 203

Runs – 7365

Average – 46.32

4) Shoaib Malik – A nearly two-decade-long career that began as an off-spinner and will most likely end as one of Pakistan’s most dependable batsmen in the shorter formats of the game. The man from Sialkot is a spectator’s delight thanks to a watertight defence and some attractive horizontal bat shots and lofted drives.

Matches – 450

Runs – 11133

Average – 36.73

Top 4 Bowler Picks

1) Shoriful Islam – When Bangladesh won the 2020 Under-19 World Cup, Shoriful Islam became a left-arm pace phenomenon practically overnight. Shoriful’s World Cup-winning performance enthralled the country, and many predicted that he would soon be a member of the national squad. When he was called up to the Bangladesh side for the first time in 2021, that expectation became a reality.

Matches – 54

Wickets – 67

Economy – 8.16

2) Mustafizur Rahman – He bowls using his left arm and begins to refine his left-off cutter which he delivers in the same manner as a spinner but with the added capacity to carry to the wicketkeeper.

Matches – 168

Wickets – 220

Economy – 7.30

3) Shaheen Afridi – There is no dispute about Shaheen Afridi’s frighteningly limitless potential. Afridi, like his famous namesake, is blessed with a tall gangly frame and the ability to bowl really fast. He can also strike the ball hard with his good batting skills.

Matches – 102

Wickets – 137

Economy – 7.78

4) Haris Rauf – He is fiery with his T20 skills and has bowled phenomenal spells in the warm-up matches. He is full of great potential and is in excellent form to play this match.

Matches – 92

Wickets – 123

Economy – 8.34

Top 2 All-rounder Picks

1) Mahedi Hassan – He is a good off-spinner, fielder, and batsman who has performed well in both the top and lower orders. He is a wise pick for the next match.

Matches – 92

Runs – 1047

Average – 19.75

Wickets – 82

Economy – 6.95

2) Shadab Khan – Shadab bowls with a more loopy trajectory than other modern limited-overs spinners, and he uses his wit and finesse to deceive batsmen in the air. He makes good use of the crease, bowling both near to the stumps and from a wider angle to force the batsman to adjust his eye line.

Matches – 171

Runs – 1379

Average – 17.67

Economy – 7.21
