Analysis

Table toppers of Group 2, Pakistan have dominated the Group right from the start and have been one of the most consistent sides of the tournament so far. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan would be the top picks for the side and are dependable captain choices, given their performance in the ongoing World Cup. Additionally, Shaheen Afridi has been one of the most impressive performers in the tournament and can guarantee to fetch some fantasy points alongside Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf.

Though Namibia started as underdogs in the Super 12s, having won their opening game, the Gerhard Erasmus-led side is unlikely to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament. However, there’ve been a few performers who have impressed from the side and their contribution can help Namibia in registering a win in their upcoming games. Craig Williams and Gerhard Erasmus are the top batting picks from the side and a lot will depend upon their contribution. Besides, David Wiese has been the most valuable player for Namibia which makes him a must have in one’s fantasy team.
