Section 6: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top Picks: 

Shaheen Shah & Haris Rauf (bowling first): Shaheen has been one of my top captaincy choices even before the first game, and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be in this game as well. Haris Rauf too, has bowled exceptionally well & is also bowling at the death. Both have good numbers at Dubai as well. 

Shaheen at Dubai (bowling first): 

Innings 7
Overs24.5
Wickets 13
SR11.5 
BBI5/4 

Shaheen has been wicketless just once in his last 10 T20 games. 

Haris Rauf at Dubai (bowling first): 

Innings 
Overs 8
Wickets 3
SR16 

(Has 6W at a SR of 13 in second innings too)

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Rashid Khan (bowling second): Has the experience of playing against few of this Pakistani batsmen & has also dismissed Babar twice. Has very good numbers at Dubai bowling second. 

Rashid bowling second at Dubai: 

Innings 8
Overs30
Wickets 13
BBI3/4
Avg8.4
SR12.2

Rizwan & Babar (chasing): The two very popular & default picks in small leagues. Both finished the game against India chasing 151 quite easily & again will be your top captaincy choices in small leagues while chasing. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Shahzad vs Shaheen: Worth taking the risk? 

Just like Rohit, Shahzad too, has struggled against LAP on an incoming delivery (from over the wicket) 

Shahzad vs LAP in T20s (ball coming in)

Even in ODIs, he has been dismissed on the same delivery in just 3 balls that he has faced. 

And we know Shaheen bowls the exact same line with the new ball. So definitely worth the risk to drop Shahzad in GLs. May completely backfire too, but at least, that’s a calculated risk. 

Pakistani Batsmen vs Googly in T20s: 

Because they have to face Mujeeb & Rashid, their numbers against Googly becomes very important:

So Fakhar & Azam have a higher balls per dismissal against a googly among all the Pakistani batsmen.
