KDH vs NAN Playing 11:

Wicket-keeper– Sam Billings
Batsmen– Asghar Afghan, Brendon McCullum, Najibullah Zadran, (Nasir Jamal, Mohammad Mithun)
All-rounder–Kevin O Brien, Soumya Sarkar, Karim Janat

Batsmen– Rahmat Shah, Anton Devcich, Shafiqullah Shafaq
All-rounder– Ben Cutting
Bowlers – Sandeep Lamichhane, Mujeeb Zadran, Zahir Khan (Naveen Ul Haq)
KDH vs NAN Fantasy Picks:
Both Sam Billings and Mushfiqur Rahim are of same credit and are good choices. However, looking after the form he showcased in Asia Cup 2018, Mushfiqur Rahim will be a better choice.
Brendon McCullum, Asghar Afghan, Andre Fletcher, and Rahmat Shah will be the top picks for batsmen. Asghar Afghan and Rahmat Shah played some good innings in the Asia Cup while Brendon McCullum at the top doesn’t need any introduction.
In all-rounder, Ben Cutting and Anton Devcich will be best picks. Paul Stirling is currently taking part in Abu Dhabi T20 tournament. So, don’t pick him.
In bowlers, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Sandeep Lamichhane, Wahab Riaz and Tymal Mills will be the safe bet. Mujeeb Ur Rahman recently showcased top abilities in the Asia Cup and is expected to continue the same form.
