He might not have been asked to contribute to his side’s cause the last time around but Ben Duckett has been a constant source of runs for Team all across the length of the season.
Chris Gayle has just the one knock to show for his troubles this term but that 12 ball 50 was more than enough to see him retain his place in our side.
Joe Clarke will be his partner for the day with Luke Wright’s 18 ball 27 run knock the last time around completing the trivalent of batting picks from the side.
Qalandars on the other hand will see Tom Banton as ever line up for us. At a time when everyone was walking back to the pavilion, he held his ground to accrue a crucial 26 run knock for the club.
The team’s leading scorer, Sohail Akhtar and Sharjeel Khan will wrap up this six man facet for today’s matchup.
He needed five matches to hit his stride but Paul Stirling couldn’t have settled into his groove at a more ideal time. His 64 run knock ended up being a man of the match display, one which assured his side of a place in this outing.
Complimenting him was Jamie Overton, the side’s leading wicket taker. The Northern man ended up pulling off a four wicket haul on the day, one which earned his team a 21 run triumph.
Obed McCoy gave him perfect company with the two strikes to see both comprise of the duo from the club. Ahmad Daniyal’s wicket the last time around against Delhi was the only wicket his side ended up picking up in an otherwise lacklustre display.
