XI-S vs CAT Top picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
Tabish Qahquos averages 27 on this ground and has played beautifully so far for the XI Stars. His 50 off just 24 deliveries nearly had them home against the Bengali team and he would like to convert his big scores to his team’s victory.
Tanveer Shah has missed out the last 2 times with the bat in the tournament so far but with the ball and in the field has compensated for his efforts. He picked up a wicket in the game against MIB and effected a run-out chance. He is a quality batter with an amazing record of 232 runs in just 10 previous games for XI stars and would be raring to cut loose in this fixture.
Umar Riaz has picked 2 wickets per game so far in the tournament and would be the pick of the bowlers for the XI Stars. If XI Stars are looking for a victory, they would be counting on him as their strike bowler.
Saqib Latif remained not out on 41 in just 22 balls, hitting 4 huge sixes and a boundary against the seemingly invincible team of Bengali. He looked unstoppable in the previous game and would like to repeat the same performance this time around.
Yasir Ali scored a quick 27 off just 9 deliveries at the top of the order and also picked an important wicket in the only game the team has played in the tournament. CAT would be expecting a strong start from their opener in this game as well.
