Ghulam Abbass Butt has been in fine form across with the bat and ball, chipping in one way or the other for his team. He scored 118 runs in his last four knocks and picked up 6 wickets in as many games. Akhil Arjunan didn’t have much to prove thus far but the all-rounder is definitely capable of bowling economical spells with a wicket or two.
All-rounder Atif Rashid will be one of the top picks for this fixture, who registered five wickets and despite not getting a chance to prove himself with the bat, he can strike the ball hard. Nathan Collins has played international cricket for Finland and registered a half-century against Spain not so long ago.
Areeb Abdul Quadir is a safe pick among wicket-keepers as neither of the teams have a keeper who is consistently scoring runs. However, Quadir did show some promise with a 16-ball 22 against Empire CC. Peter Gallagher has been consistent with the bat, chipping in with scores of 20 or more regularly.
Waqas Raja is one of the top picks among bowlers, having picked up 6 wickets in his last four games at an economy lurking around 6. Adnan Syed for HCC has done a decent job too, picking 4 wickets in his last four outings.
