Players to watch out
One of the primary reasons why Maratha Arabians is a team to watch out is the presence of Rashid Khan as their icon player. Rashid is the world’s primary leg-spinner and he’s continued to impress everyone, bamboozling most batsmen in the shortest format of the game.
While Rashid alone cannot win matches and tournaments, there are four other who can do so with their bats. In Kamran Akmal, Alex Hales, Dwayne Bravo and James Faulkner, the Maratha Arabians squad is full of explosive batsmen who can play different batting roles.
