    Stakes getting higher now with each passing game.

    We move back to Sharjah now for last phase of league games.

    Islamabad United are in red hot form and will be looking to seal one of the top spots on the table with a win in this game. Hales and Billings joining them will only improve their chances now.

    Multan Sultans have lost a lot of their momentum in last few games. They desperately need a win here to improve chances of securing a berth for playoffs.

    What should be the team lineups for this big game?

    Hope Islamabad dont take their foot off the break. Should be looking to seal qualification and 90% seal the top 2 spot tomorrow.

    Lose tomorrow and whilst its not the end of the world, some pressure will build for the game against Quetta...then anything can happen. And our last game is against Karachi, could be a 'semi final' game for the top 2 spot. Dont want to be in that position.

    Billings should be bought in, probably for Finn. Didnt do great in the game against Zalmi and cant drop the top 2 nor can we drop Patel. Though that then leaves us with 1 specialist fast bowler. Cant wait for Rumman to be back IA.

    Sami, Patel, Shadab, Faheem, Zafar

    Billing isn't a bowler genius

    can't drop any International batsman right now, Finn will be benched for Raess

    you want Finn to be replaced by Billings so you want a batsman to replace a bowler which means you want one less bowler which is very unprofessional

    We have Sami and Faheem is bowling well/getting wickets.

    Finn bowled 2 overs in the game against Zalmi and got hammered. Whats the point of playing someone who'll bowl a couple of overs when you can have a batsman who can hit big and/or rotate the strike and also plays spin very well.

    Sami and Patel can bowl in opening overs with Faheem coming in and then the 2 spinners who turn the ball. Simple.

    Basically Replacing Finn with Rumman Raees and getting Billings as a foreign batsman by replacing a local batsman like Asif Ali or Misbah

    Potentially 2 teams:

    Team 1 (not playing 3 spinners to combat Sanga/Malik and potential dew):

    Hales
    Ronchi
    JP
    Hussain
    Misbah
    Asif
    Faheem
    Shadab
    Sami
    Finn
    Gohar

    (Opening partnership could be 50/0 after 4/5 or 2/2 after 2 lol)

    Team 2 (disregarding the opposition and any potential dew if bowling second and going with the 2 bowlers who have done well/did well in the last game):

    Ronchi
    JP
    Talat
    Farhan/Asif (though lets be honest, they wont drop Asif)
    Billings
    Misbah
    Fahim
    Patel
    Shadab
    Sami
    Gohar

    @Mohsin trying hard to prove he is not a bakwas analyst.

    Even tagged IU, Deano and Waqar on twitter as if they were waiting for his input to finalize their XI Lulz

    You got a like just for your display pic lol.

    I hope Multan make it to Pakistan. Sanga is up for going there so hoping his team do make it to Lahore and Karachi

    Its exactly for this reason I'd rather see QG to be out instead of other teams... are we going to see them playing with Sean Ervine, Elton Chigumbura and Emrit like last year?

    Misbah at times seem to promote favoritism by selecting his favorites like Asif Ali, and ignoring upcoming talent like Farhan. Disgusting.

    Ronchi and JP opening, Hales probably at 3

    Malik opening up against Ronchi, not surprising
