Dawid Malan: He is the top batsman on the English team. He is in fine touch and can be once again England’s leading man with the bat.
Babar Azam: He is currently one of the most consistent batsmen going around in world cricket. As the format gets shorter, he becomes more and more brilliant. Watch out for a Babar special in the Ist T20I.
Saqib Mahmood: He is in fine form with the ball. He ran through the Pakistan batting line-up in the ODI series.
Shaheen Afridi: He starred with the ball for Pakistan in their last T20I series. He is expected to be lethal with the ball at the death and in the powerplays.
