Bangladesh will host Pakistan in the 2nd T20I of the three-match series at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
In the first match, which took place yesterday, the Tigers chose to bat first and managed to post a total of 127/7 in their 20 overs. Afif Hossain (36 off 34), Nurul Hasan (28 off 22) & Mahedi Hasan (30* off 20) were the key contributors for the hosts.
Hasan Ali starred with the ball for Pakistan as he picked up three wickets in his four-over spell.
In reply, Pakistan were off to a shaky start, losing four wickets for just 24 runs in the powerplay. However, a 34-run knock by both Fakhar Zaman and Khusdil Shah brought Pakistan closer to the finish line. Finally, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz belted a couple of sixes apiece to take the touring side over the line by 4 wickets.
The Tigers will look to bounce back from the loss and level the series. Meanwhile, Pakistan will look to continue their winning momentum.
With that said, let's take a look at the three players you can choose as captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 team for the 2nd T20I between Bangladesh and Pakistan.
#3 Shadab Khan
Shadab Khan is a key player for the touring side as he can contribute with both bat and ball. During the first game of the series, he picked up one wicket during his four-over spell. With the bat, he played a quickfire knock of 21 runs off 10 balls at a strike rate of 210 to guide his side to victory.
One can expect Shadab to continue his fine run in the series. He will surely be a great multiplier option for your Dream11 team.
#2 Fakhar Zaman
Pakistan's top-order batter Fakhar Zaman has been in fine touch of late. The no.3 batter continued his fine run with a 34-run knock from 36 deliveries in the first game.
One can expect Fakhar Zaman to score big if he spends a few overs in the middle on Saturday.
#1 Mahedi Hasan
Mahedi Hasan should find a place in your Dream11 team, considering his ability to contribute with both bat and ball. He was in fine touch during the 1st T20I.
Mahedi amassed an unbeaten 30-run knock from just 20 balls at a strike rate of 150. With the ball, he returned with figures of 1/17 from his four-over spell.
