Let’s see the Key players and Must picks for this match in this Fantasy Preview, along with various Fantasy Website’s salary cap comparisons for the players.


Key Players :

From Pakistan :

Sarfaraz Khan :

The T20I captain of Pakistan team was in amazing form against England in ODI series last month. He scored 300 runs in 5 innings against England with the career best score of 105 runs. He continued his form in recent T20 match against West Indies. He is great form and when ever he get chance to bat, he shows his skills and helps the team a lot. The wicket-keeper batsman promoted to no. 4 in the series against England and he may play at same position in this series too. Based on his batting form, definitely he is a key player for his team.

Mohammad Amir :

The Left-Arm Fast Bowler, returned back to International cricket in early 2016 after faced 5 years ban. He played his first ODI against New Zealand when he returned to International arena. He has played 7 ODIs till now in 2016 and picked 10 wickets with best of 3/28. He struggled for his form in England tour. He picked only 4 wickets in 4 ODIs that he played against England. He played only one T20I against West Indies in the 3 match series. But, he is the dangerous and pillar of Pakistan bowling attack right now. As ODI series begins in Sharjah, Amir expects to return back to his original form. Once he bowl to his potential, he will be the man who going to destroy WI batting line-up.

From West Indies :

Johnson Charles :

The opening batsman from St. Lucia, made his ODI debut in 2012. He has 42 ODI matches to his name and he scored 1214 runs at strike rate of 83.83. His highest score was 130. He played match winning knocks in the tri-series in June. He had memorable CPL season this year. He carried forward his good form against India in Florida T20I series. But, here in UAE, he failed to score in all 3 T20I vs Pakistan. As the tour shifts to ODI format, guess he will come back to his form and help his team to post some decent target at Sharjah.

Kieron Pollard :

Pollard is an All-rounder who are specialist in Limited overs cricket. Pollard had some good time and bad time in the last few months. His mixed form continued in T20 series which is just got over against Pakistan earlier this week. He played some good knocks during the tri-series in June. He is the major batsman for West Indies in the middle order. He will bat at no. 5 or 6 position based on the situation of the match. He will play his 99th ODI match today. He scored 2247 runs in 92 innings with SR of 94 and his highest ODI score was 119. He used to bowl when his team needs to break the partnership and he has 47 wickets ODI wickets to his credit.

Must Picks :

Shoaib Malik : 

The experienced batsman of Pakistan squad who are playing ODI cricket since 1999. Shoaib Malik is one of the most consistent Pakistan batsman ever. He has played total of 237 ODI matches till date and he scored 6309 runs with the best score of 143. He was captained Pakistan side in the past. He had good CPL season again in 2016. But, he struggled for form in the ODI series against England last month. He came back with match winning half century in the last ODI vs England. He got chance to bat twice in the T20 series against West Indies and he showed his consistency in the both matches with the scores of 37 and 43*. Once he set in the middle today, he will post big score and helps his team to post a big target. Surely, he is one of must pick in this match.

Imad Wasim :

The man in dream form at the moment and the most valuable player at the moment, Imad Wasim has huge role to play in this ODI series. He was the Player of the Series vs West Indies in recently concluded T20I series. He had good CPL season and he won Man of the Match award in CPL final, 2016. He was the best bowler of Pakistan in the ODI series vs England. He picked up 9 wickets in England series and scored 153 runs. He remained not out in all 4 innings he batted. He is the player of the moment for Pakistan and if carries his great form today, surely it will hurt WI so badly.

    Daily Fantasy Cricket Salary : $ 850

    Moneyball 9 Salary : Rs. 7000


Sunil Narine :

The whole West Indies bowling line-up in this squad are relying with this Magician, Sunil Narine. Narine is out of form in the recent times. He had good ODI series back in June against Australia and South Africa. He had good CPL season too. But He was expensive against India in the Florida T20 match. He remained wicket-less in T20 series. But he is a player who can come back to magical form at any moment. Today may be his day. Once he back to form, he will show his magical works to the opposition. In my view, Sunil Narine is must pick.
