The probable BAL vs KAB playing 11 is listed below.
Wicket-keeper – Ikram Ali Khil
Batsmen – Chris Gayle, Ryan ten Doeschate, Colin Munro, Darwish Rasooli
All-rounder – Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Ravi Bopara
Bowlers – Mirwais Ashraf, Qais Ahmed, Aftab Alam
Wicket-keeper – Luke Ronchi
Batsmen – Laurie Evans, Hazratullah Zazai, Colin Ingram, Javed Ahmadi
All-rounder – Rashid Khan, Shahidullah Kamal
Bowlers – Wayne Parnell, Fareed Ahmad, Muslim Musa, Zamir Khan
In wicketkeeper, Luke Ronchi will be a better pick as Ikram Ali Khan comes way to down the batting order.
In batsmen, Ryan ten Doeschate, Darwish Rasooli, Laurie Evans and H Zazai are a must have options. All the four are in great touch and consistently scoring runs. You can consider Chris Gayle, Colin Ingram, and Javed Ahmadi as the fifth batsmen as all are potential big hitters but have failed to deliver to their caliber.
In all-rounder, Ravi Bopara and Gulbadin Naib would be better as first picks. You can take Rashid Khan or Shahidullah Kamal depending upon the credits.
In bowlers, Qais Ahmad, Aftab Alam, and Wayne Parnell will be good choices. All returned with 2 wickets each in their respective last game and will be the key in providing breakthroughs.
