Pakhtoons and Rajputs face off in the 6th game of the tournament coming from a one-day off after playing on the first day. Rajputs lit up the T10 league by chasing down 95 in just four overs in the tournament opener. Mohammad Shahzad went ballistic scoring 74 in only 16 balls out of which 14 were boundary shots. Shahzad also recorded the fastest fifty of the T10 history taking only 12 deliveries. It was the bowling of Rajputs that contained a formidable Sindhis’ batting to only 94/6.

Pakhtoons, on the other hand, went down against the defending champions Kerala Knights. A collective batting effort saw Pakhtoons reaching 109/5 in their ten overs but Kerala chased it down in only 7.5 overs thanks to Eoin Morgan and Paul Stirling’s efforts. The Pakhtoons have decent batting line-up but have to make several adjustments to their bowling unit to face the dangerous Sindhis.

Munaf Patel’s slow balls have turned to be the boon for the Rajputs as the batsmen went after him and ended up conceding their wickets. Sayed Shirzad has enough variations to succeed at this level which he showed during the Afghanistan Premier League as well.

Mohammad Shahzad, Colin Ingram, Brendon McCullum, Andre Fletcher, Cameron Delport, David Willey, Carlos Brathwaite, Liam Dawson, Sayed Shirzad, Sohail Khan, Munaf Patel.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

After the way Mohammad Shahzad and Brendon McCullum batted in the first game, one of them can be considered as a captain. Evans can be an alternative for any multiplier but it goes down to on how many balls he gets to face. Liam Dawson, Cameron Delport and Carlos Brathwaite can be considered for vice-captain.

Expert Advice:

It has to be seen how teams come after their first game. This match will give an idea whether teams go with their best playing XI or try to give chances to all players in their squad before heading into the next round.
