Captaincy Picks

Babar Azam

There’s no stopping Babar Azam at the moment as he has been on a roll lately. The Karachi Kings opener scored a match-winning 77 in his first outing after season resumption and backed it up with a fighting 85. Azam doesn’t tend to lose momentum after a couple of good outings. Hence, Islamabad United bowlers must come up with a solid plan against him.

 Shadab Khan

Islamabad United skipper Shadab Khan has made notable contributions with both and ball this season, playing a vital role in his side’s successful campaign. The leg-spinner has been miser in leaking runs, and his happy knack of taking wickets in middle overs has troubled many batting line-ups. He can also play big shots at will, which makes Shadab an even more incredible asset.
