There is something on offer for both the batsmen and bowlers with the likes of Aaron Finch and Haris Sohail scoring heavily whilst batting first. Apart from the new ball spell, the pacers should revert to change ups which could bring in Mustafizur Rahman in to the play. Anything above 250 should be competitive given the conditions and the pressure of chasing this World Cup.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Mushfiqur Rahim is the preferred option with the experienced campaigner already having a notched up a couple of fifties and a hundred to his name this World Cup. While Rahim should bring in some valuable points, his counterpart Sarfaraz Ahmed hasn’t been able to score at a quick rate inspite of batting in the death overs, making him a liability for this game.
Batsmen: Bangladesh’s premier batsman, Tamim Iqbal has not been up to the mark this tournament and would love to end on a high against a star-studded Pakistan bowling unit led by Amir. Along with Tamim, two of Babar Azam, Imam ul Haq and Fakhar Zaman should suffice while the all-round abilities of Soumya Sarkar could also come into play as the game progresses.
Allrounders: Shakib Al Hasan is a must have in any team with the form he is currently in. Although he is due for a failure with the law of averages catching up, he has already scored 542 runs and picked 11 wickets this tournament and should be able to earn some fantasy points. One of Imad Wasim or Mohammad Hafeez should fill in as the second all-rounder in the fantasy team.
Bowlers: One of Mohammad Amir or Mustafizur Rahman should be picked in the side along with Mohammad Saifuddin and Wahab Riaz, who have justified their selection in the starting XI. Shadab Khan is also a decent option as he gives good value with his all-round abilities while Mortaza could pick a wicket or two in what could be his last match for Bangladesh.
Captain: Tamim Iqbal and Fakhar Zaman are the ideal candidates with both left-handed openers looking to end on a high. Along with them, Babar Azam is also a good option while Shakib Al Hasan’s name is sure to pop up in the discussion for captaincy.
