Top Picks – Pakistan
- Ihsanullah – Being the only bowlers to take 2 wickets whilst defending a total of mere 93 runs previously, Ihsanullah will be raring to face the Afghanistan batting unit again.
- Mohammad Haris – Having played so well in the recently concluded PSL 2023, this wicketkeeper-batsman will be looking to redeem himself by giving the away side a good start.
