PAN vs SHA, Pondicherry T20, Final
Date and Time: 23rd August, 2021, 8:00 PM IST.
Venue: Cricket Association Siechem, Puducherry.
A decent batting track awaits the two sides with some help on offer for the bowlers as well. The pacers should get the ball to move around in the first few overs, keeping the batters on their toes. The batsmen, meanwhile, will need to bide their time in the middle before shifting gears. However, there is some spin on offer, making for an even contest between the bat and ball in the middle overs. Both teams will ideally look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150-160 being a decent total at the venue.
Today’s PAN vs SHA Dream11 match top picks
G Thivagar: Although Thivagar has been fairly solid with the bat in the Pondicherry T20, he is due for a big knock in this fixture. Given his ability to play the big shots, he should be a good addition to your PAN vs SHA Dream11 fantasy team.
Priyam Ashish: Priyam Ashish comes into the game on the back of some good form for the Panthers. Capable of playing pace and spin equally well, Ashish should prove to be a handful in this high-octane clash.
Ameer Zeeshan: Ameer Zeeshan has been the player of the Pondicherry T20, with the all-rounder even coming up with a match-winning performance in the semi-final. Given his form and ability to change the course of a game with his all-round skills, he is a must-have in your PAN vs SHA Dream11 fantasy team.
TA Abeesh: TA Abeesh is arguably one of the best bowlers in the competition with a heap of wickets under his belt. With conditions likely to help him, he should be a good addition to your fantasy team for this game.
