KDH VS NAN 11WICKETS.COM TEAM PREDICTION
Wicket-keeper: You can pick either of the two wicket-keepers involved in the game – Sam Billings and Mushfiqur Rahim. However, we are going with the latter purely because of the top-form he exhibited in the recently concluded Asia Cup.
Batsmen: Brendon McCullum, Asghar Afghan and Najibullah Zadran are Kandahar Kings’ batsmen you can opt for. From Nangarhar Leopards, you can go with Anton Devcich, Rahmat Shah and Shafiqullah Shafaq.
Note: Keeping in mind Nangarhar Leopards’ bowling quality, you must pick fewer Kings’ batsmen.
All-rounders: Paul Stirling and Ben Cutting are the best all-rounder options, with proven track records.
Bowlers: In Mujeeb Zadran, Sandeep Lamichhane and Zahir Khan, Nangarhar Leopards have the too much capability. Tymal Mills is another who can be considered.
Captain/Vice-captain picks: Mushfiqur Rahim, Ben Cutting, Brendon McCullum, Sandeep Lamichhane and Paul Stirling
Kandahar Kings versus Nangarhar Leopards Prediction
Kandahar Kings have a solid line-up, but rather the Nangarhar Leopards have a portion of the Caribbean’s greatest hitters to tally upon and a solid center Afghanistan-based player as well. All-over, the Leopards look stronger on the ground.
