Probable best bowler of the match – Shaheen Afridi

Sitting on fourth spot for the most wickets list of the tournament, Skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi will have the responsibility to provide early breakthrough for his side in the match. The left-arm pacer in nine matches has scalped 14 wickets in 36 overs he has bowled so far in the tournament.
