Batsman-Openers of Islamabad Colin Munro and Usman Khawaja are in tremendous form for the team and have scored the bulk of runs for the team. The veteran in Multan line-up Shoaib Maqsood too showed what he is capable of in a few of the games giving support to skipper Rizwan. Apart from the overseas player Rilee Rossouw is a dangerous batsman in this format of the game. Asif Ali too has turned a leaf in this PSL and is being pretty consistent as of late.
All-rounder– Just like Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed also has made some match-winning contributions at crucial times making him a dependable player. Hussain Talat, in recent, has been used more as a bowler and has not disappointed his team.
Wicket-Keeper– Without any doubt, the keeper of your fantasy team should be Mohammad Rizwan.
Bowlers– Hasan Ali is the first choice bowler of the fantasy team while youngster Shahnawaz Dhani can take the other slot. Imran Khan has been a wicket in this PSL.
Team for fantasy: Colin Munro, Usman Khawaja, Mohamad Rizwan, Shoaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Asif Ali, Ifthikhar Ahmed, Hussain Talat, Hasan Ali, Shahnawaz Dhani, Imran Khan
