As things stand, there are only six league matches to go in this year's Pakistan Super League and yet it is all open for teams to book a place in the playoffs. With everything to play for, the intensity is expected to grow further this week.
Let's look at 5 key players who can help you score big on fantasy cricket this week.
His three 50+ scores in four recent matches make him the top fantasy pick of PSL. The Karachi Kings batsman has raced to 244 runs in 8 matches at a healthy batting average of 34.85.
Shane Watson is a prized asset for Quetta Gladiators, for an exceptional flair and skill both as a bowler and batsman. The Australian all-rounder is the leading run-getter in the tournament, with 299 runs to his name. To go with it, Watson is also his team's leading wicket-taker with 10 scalps in 8 matches.
Multan Sultans have slipped from the first position on the PSL table to the third, but their skipper Shoaib Malik is not done yet. Malik has accumulated 212 runs at an impressive batting average of 42.40, and also picked 3 wickets with his part-time off-spin. He is one to watch out for.
Since getting in the playing XI, Samit Patel has infused life into Islamabad United. In the last 5 matches for his side, Patel has claimed 8 scalps. So far, the former England International did not get much of a batting opportunity, but surely he knows how to swing the willow.
Lahore Qalandars might not be in contention for the playoff but would sure crash the party for one or two. And, this Kiwi looks all set to do that. In three games, the New Zealand left-hander has racked 108 runs at a strike rate of 166.15
