Since the President’s XI seems to be a line-up of the veterans, we have picked only selective names who have had larger experience at competitive cricket. The uncertainty of their playing XI and batting order is also one of the reasons for selecting only six players from their squad across our fantasy teams.
The Fort Charlotte Strikers are expected to win this Friendly match.
