(Sultans can also open with Shan Masood)

FCG’s players to watch out for:

Malik:  Pakistan‘s one of the best players in T20’s will be Sultan’s most valuable player this season with both bat & bowl.

Due to lack of off spinning options in their side, Malik will most likely bowl 2-4 overs in almost every game.

Shehzad: Ahmed Shehzad is one of those strange cricketers who are either too good when they gets going & extremely bad when he doesn’t.

But, he’s been in great touch in recent time & will be very important player for 


Junaid & Tanvir: Sultans bowling attack is full of left arm seamers with Junaid, Tanvir & Irfan making a very strong attack.

Smith & Akmal: Akmal is the man of the tournament last season & also the man of the tournament of National T20 cup 2018.

Though both Smith & Akmal had a disastrous HKT20 Blitz but both loves UAE conditions & also smashed in the practice games scoring with over 200 strike rate in every game.

Riaz: With Hasan & Bravo out, Riaz becomes the only wicket taking threat in Zalmi’s squad right now along with Jordan.

Dream11 Team:

Wk: Akmal

Batsman: Shehzad, Iqbal, Bravo/Sohail

All-rounders: Malik, Smith

Bowlers: Riaz, Tanvir, Junaid, Tahir, Jordan.

FCG’s Match Verdict:

Defending champs are favourites to win but are a depleted side without Hasan Ali & Bravo. Also, Hafeez cannot bowl who gives balance to Zalmi & Pakistani side by giving an extra bowling option.
Therefore, backing Sultans at current odds is a good bet to begin PSL 2018 

Also, Malik/Shehzad Top bat for Sultans 

& Smith/Akmal top bat for Zalmi’s looks appealing.

Good Luck
