In the second match of Sunday’s doubleheader in shapgeeza Cricket League 2020, Amo Sharks takes on Boost Defenders. The Sharks are out of the tournament as they are yet to register a win the tournament. On the other hand, the Defenders are placed at No.4 in the table and are well in contention for the top.4 finish. The Defenders couldn’t have asked for better opponents than the Sharks who are struggling like anything. So a win here will take them into the playoffs irrespective of the morning match result.

Kabul has proved to be a fast scoring venue so far in the tournament. The average score in the tournament has been around 160. But quality spinners have found a way to utilize dryness of the surface.
He has been the most consistent performer for Defenders in the tournament. He has either contributed with the bat or bowl in every match played. He also has a great record in the league which makes him the top pick of the match.
One can’t go past Wasi in picking any fantasy team given his impressive performance in the tournament. He is the leading wicket-taker for the Sharks and also chipped in with few runs. He can be tried as a captain option as well.
He may not be amongst the top wicket-takers in the season but he is certainly amongst the economical ones. Given how spinners performed in the tour and the lack of quality batsman in the Sharks side we expect him to be among the top performers of the match.
He may not have been as consistent as Janat but he has come up with impactful performances more often than not. His all-round ability makes him one of the top picks of the match.
He seems to be having the stand out season this time around as he is the top run-scorer for the Sharks. But we didn’t opt him for C or VC choice in our SL team given there are other all-round options available.
