Tom Latham has been omitted from the NZ squad. Martin Guptill will replace him at the top. Also, Jeetan Patel might get a chance to play as a second spinner for the hosts. For SA though, we don’t expect any major changes.
Try picking the top-order of the Karachi Kings. Also, their bowling has enough variety and depth. With Islamabad though, don’t experiment too much with their players.
The rain might continue to intervene in this decider. Also, we feel the bowlers from both sides will have a big say in this game.
There will be a dilemma for the selection of all-rounders for this round. But, picking a captain from that category could help.
For this round too, you need to pack your teams with top-order batsmen from both teams. Also, the all-rounders will come into play.
Keep a batsman oriented team for this round as we feel they might get enough runs on the board. Also, don’t pick too many bowlers from the Quetta camp.
We expect good batting conditions and while NZ are unlikely to change their winning combo, SA might bring Rabada back in place of Parnell or Phehlukwayo.
There are quite a few options available in the all-rounder category. Also, both teams have some utility cricketers, who can chip at crucial junctures. Try picking them in.
Given the way things have gone in the series, we expect the bowlers to have a good time. Also, picking all-rounder as a captain could work.
A few foreigners in T Perera, Mahmadullah or Pollard could get benched for this match. Also, the challenge will come in the all-round department for this round.
