So it’s Afridi’s former team Vs Afridi’s current team with Afridi sitting on bench. LOL.
After winning yesterday’s Eliminator by 1 run against Quetta which by far was one of the most bizarre finishes in T20 cricket, Zalmi’s will now be facing Karachi in a virtual semifinal.
Tamim is out from today’s clash due to injury & Wessels should replace him.
Sammy is still struggling with fitness & can’t even run properly but should again play. If he opts out, Jordan will play on his place.
Fletcher, Akmal, Wessels, Hafeez, Dawson, Saad, Sammy/Jordan , Riaz, Umaid, Hasan, Sameen.
After losing to Ronchi in last game, Karachi has to now face Zalmis for a place in final.
Morgan, who has decided not to be bombed will be replaced by Bopara/Simmons. While Mohammad Amir will be leading the side today in place of Imad & Morgan. (Just announced)
Simmons has also joined KK who has changed his mind 3 times before finally coming to Pakistan. Weise is also available for KK to officially carry drinks for the team.
Afridi & Imad both have been out due to injury & concussion respectively. Karachi after PCB’s consent have added Danish Aziz, veteran spinner Zulfiqar Babar & T20 specialist Mukhtar Ahmed.
Update: Amir has been announced KK’s captain for today’s clash which indicates that Simmons can be preferred over Bopara for the forth overseas slot.
Denly, Manzoor/Mukhtar, Azam, Ingram, Simmons/Bopara, Rizwan, Usama Mir, Irfan Jr, Amir, Usman Khan, Mills.
