Wicket-keeper: You can pick either of the two wicket-keepers involved in the game – Sam Billings and Mushfiqur Rahim. However, we are going with the latter purely because of the top-form he exhibited in the recently concluded Asia Cup.
Batsmen: Brendon McCullum, Asghar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran are Kandahar Kings’ batsmen you can punt on. From Nangarhar Leopards, you can go with Anton Devcich, Rahmat Shah and Shafiqullah Shafaq.
Quick tip: Keeping in mind Nangarhar Leopards’ bowling quality, you must pick fewer Kings’ batsmen.
All-rounders: Paul Stirling and Ben Cutting are the best all-rounder options, with proven track records.
Bowlers: In Mujeeb Zadran, Sandeep Lamichhane and Zahir Khan, Nangarhar Leopards have the too much capability. Tymal Mills is another who can be considered.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Ben Cutting, Brendon McCullum, and Paul Stirling
