The Sharjah ground has assisted both the sides- batting as well as bowling. The matches here have been both high scoring as well as low scoring. So, why not make a team of batsmen and a team full of bowlers or all-rounders. All-rounders have played a very crucial role in the tournament so far.
TIP: Do not pick Sikandar Raza in any of your teams be it for the small league or grand league. He has joined Zimbabwe squad for the upcoming series against Bangladesh.
