Top Captaincy Picks for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa vs Central Punjab GoodGamer Fantasy contest
Fakhar Zaman may have got a duck in the last game but he has been batting really well in the last few games. The left-handed opener has had a great run of form and scored three 60s in four innings before that duck. Overall, he has made 271 runs and is striking at 141.88 in this tournament.
Shaheen Shah Afridi has been absolutely magnificent with the ball in this tournament. He has wreaked havoc and has picked up 16 wickets so far. He has a bowling average of 12.00 and a strike-rate of 10.5. He will once again be the one to watch out for.
Babar Azam is a no-brainer choice as fantasy captain among the Central Punjab players. He got a duck in the last game against Southern Punjab and it was only the second time in four games he was dismissed. But before that, he smashed three back to back half-centuries and is looking in ominous form.
Abdullah Shafique has been in good form with the bat. He has done well at the top of the order and has got some big runs. He has amassed 295 runs at an average of 42.14 and has a strike-rate of 133.48.
Budget Picks for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa vs Central Punjab GoodGamer Fantasy Contest
Ahmed Bashir has been in top form with the ball. He has played only three games but has gone on to pick up eight wickets. He has an economy of 7.58 and he is striking once every nine deliveries.
Faheem Ashraf can be a utility pick. The pace-bowling all-rounder has played four games and has contributed pretty well. He has picked up five wickets with the ball. With the bat, he has made two half-centuries and he almost took Central Punjab over the line against Southern Punjab in the last game with his 54.
Mohammad Rizwan has been blown hot and cold with the bat but has been good behind the stumps as well. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa skipper has scored 189 runs at an average of 27 and a strike-rate of 129.45. However, he has taken seven catches and affected a stumping as well.
