KAR vs QUE, Match 6: Top Five Picks

  1. Haider Ali (KAR): 22-year old youngster Haider Ali smashed a half-century in the last game against Islamabad United and looked in good touch. Batting at a crucial no.3 spot, destructive batter Haider is a crucial part of Karachi side as he looks a safe bet for this fixture.
  2. Shoaib Malik (KAR): Veteran Pakistani Shoaib Malik is averaging 35.00 in 2 games so far with one half-century to his name. With his team yet to register a victory, Malik would look to snatch first win for the Kings by contributing with the bat.
  3. Jason Roy (QUE): England international Jason Roy got a start in his side's opening game against Multan Sultans. Opening the innings, he struck 27 off 18 and he would hope to convert his start into a big score in this contest.
  4. Sarfaraz Ahmed (QUE): Quetta Gladiators skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed managed a single-digit score against the Sultans. The right-handed batter is a vital cog in the middle-order as he looks a proper pick for the game against the Kings.
  5. Mohammad Nawaz (QUE): All-rounder Mohammad Nawaz is a utility player for the Gladiators for both his batting and bowling. Like others, even Nawaz had a quiet match against Multan but he is a proven player and should come good in this fixture.
