Captaincy Picks

Mohammad Rizwan

Mohammad Rizwan is possibly in the form of his life. Since the New Zealand tour, he hasn’t dropped his guard and is coming off a sensational T20I series against South Africa at home. He also scored his maiden T20I ton in the first of the three-match series while scoring 197 runs in three outings. He has now been appointed the skipper of the Multan Sultans and Rizwan will be hoping to continue in the same vein.

James Vince

James Vince had a brilliant Big Bash League (BBL) season. He was the second-highest run-getter of the tournament amassing 537 runs in 16 innings at a strike-rate of 143.58. Though the conditions will be completely different in Pakistan, Vince will be definitely a threat for any opposition and can give many Fantasy points with his batting.
