CEP vs KHP Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
Saad Nasim, the Central Punjab captain, would be very much aware of the fact that his team has lost twice to the same opposition and he would definitely want to lead from the front. In the semi-final, he played a quickfire knock of 39 that helped his team reach a par score.
Qasim Akram missed out on scoring big in the semi final because of a run out chance. He showed great resilience in that knock and would definitely want to make amends in the final taking his form of 27 off 22 from the previous game.
Rizwan Hussain has been able to give flying starts to his team right from the outset. He will be vital for Punjab and he is entering this game after a quickfire half century in the semis so his confidence would be sky high.
Iftikhar Ahmed has been the man for the big occassions and he is coming into this game after some tight bowling giving away just 40 from 9 overs in a nail biter of a match. He missed out with the bat but would definitely make amends this time around.
