Sharjeel Khan has been a consistent performer for the team, and he hopes to establish a big opening wicket stand with Adam Rossington in this game. Tayyab Tahir will play an important role at No. 3, and he will need to score runs alongside Shoaib Malik and Matthew Wade. Imad Wasim and Muhammad Irfan are expected to run down the order for the side.

Mohammad Amir is the attack’s spearhead, and he must strike early in the game with Aamir Yamin. Imran Tahir has a lot of experience, and the team would like to see him bowl tight spells in the middle overs. Muhammad Musa and Wasim round out the team’s strong bowling attack.
