PES vs QUE, Match 25: Top Five Picks

  1. Saim Ayub (PES): Young left-handed batter Saim Ayub opened the innings in the last game against Lahore Qalandars and struck 68 off just 36. He has smashed three half-centuries in 7 innings and should be picked for this tie.
  2. Babar Azam (PES): Peshawar Zalmi skipper Babar Azam also hit a fifty against the Qalandars and is the second-highest run-getter for his side in PSL 8. The classy right-handed batter is always a worthy pick, and so is this fixture.
  3. Azmatullah Omarzai (PES): Afghanistan pace bowler Azmatullah Omarzai has picked up 3 and 2 wickets in the two matches he has played. He is amongst the wickets and should deliver in this contest as well.
  4. Martin Guptill (QUE): New Zealand's explosive right-handed batter Martin Guptill slammed a brilliant 86* off 56 in the last match against Karachi Kings. The Kiwi already has a century to his name in this edition, as he looks like a worthy option.
  5. Mohammad Nawaz (QUE): All-rounder Mohammad Nazaz has picked up the joint-most wickets (8) for the Gladiators in this campaign. With the bat, he has one fifty to his name and batting at no.3; he might deliver the goods in this fixture.
