MUL vs ISL best players to pick for PSL 2021 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
Shan Masood opened the batting for Multan and helped his team win the game with his batting exploits. His 42-ball 73, which included seven boundaries and four sixes set the tone for his side. Along with captain Mohammad Rizwan, Multan have a formidable opening pair.
Usman Khawaja captained Islamabad United in the absence of Shadab Khan and scripted a thumping win over Peshawar Zalmi on June 17. The Australian opened the batting and remained not out on 105. He has given 251 fantasy cricket points till now.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Imran Tahir has been brilliant with the ball in PSL 2021. The South African leggie enjoys playing the T20 format and tends to fox the batsmen at regular intervals with his variations. He was the star in Multan’s last match against Quetta, where he picked up three wickets for only seven runs in two overs. He also bowled a maiden over.
Hasan Ali has been the leading seamer for Pakistan in white ball cricket lately. His ability to run in and break partnerships at regular intervals makes him a handy pick in fantasy cricket. He has picked up 16 wickets in the last eight T20 games. Hasan has played 116 games in theT20 format and has picked up 157 wickets with best bowling figures of 5/20.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
With Shadab Khan missing, Iftikhar Ahmed of Islamabad United can be a useful pick in the all-rounder category. He has scored more than 200 runs in his last seven PSL games batting in the middle order. He can also be useful with the ball.
Multan Sultans' skipper Mohammad Rizwan will be the best pick in the wicket-keeper category. He has been scoring runs consistently in this tournament opening the batting and is also giving fantasy points with his glove work. He has scored 130 runs in the last three PSL games.
