More than being a dead rubber, it’s the most awaiting clash of this season’s two biggest disappointments.
Yes, the Destructive Dwayne Smith’s Cantoons will face off with Luke Ronchi’s Hong Kong United which will have no impact on the tournament as GGL & HHJ have already qualified for the finals.
As KC haven’t included any HK Dragons player in their lineup till now, Boby Chan should be straight in.
For HKI, all their overseas players have miserably failed & they’ll again rotate one of them to include Tendo.
Smith, Hayat, Waqas, Samit, Zaidi, Adeel, Buckley, Riaz, Nawaz, Meekeren, Boby Chan.
Ronchi, Akmal, Ryan Ten, Zeeshan, Murtaza/Bukhari, Talat/Weise, Abbasi, Afzal, Ehsan, Irfan, Murtaza/Suhaib Ahmad
(There’s a rare possibility that HKI can axe Akmal/Ronchi for Tendo but highly unlikely)
Wk: Adeel/Chan (Chan has been wrongly listed under wk column, he’s a pure batsman)
Batsman: Hayat, Ronchi, Akmal
All-rounders: Smith, Samit, Afzal
(To pick Ryan Ten, you have to drop atleast one among Smith, Ronchi, Hayat or Akmal)
Bowlers: Riaz/Irfan, Ehsan, Meekeren, Murtaza/Buckley.
Captain’s picks: Samit, Smith, Ronchi, Ryan Ten, Akmal.
