After a horror start to their campaign in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Pakistan (PAK) will be against Canada (CAN) in a match where they’ll be quite confident of registering their first win of the tournament. The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York will host this game.

It has been a very difficult phase of Pakistan cricket as they first lost against USA and then failed to chase down 119 runs against India after being in a commanding position. The middle order has struggled quite badly and has failed to complement the bowlers who have been in good form recently.

Usman Khan has failed in the two games and there are chances that Saim Ayub may replace him. Fakhar Zaman has looked in good touch but has failed to score big. Babar and Rizwan have also failed to convert their starts into big scores. The batting unit must perform consistently before it’s too late for Pakistan.

The bowlers have been in good form in the couple of games. The pace quadrat of Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Amir have been brilliant. Imad Wasim also bowled well in the last game meanwhile Shadab’s poor form with the ball is a concern.

Canada, on the other hand, defeated Ireland in their last game by 12 runs. Their batters scored the highest total (137 runs) at New York in this tournament and the bowlers then did a great job in defending that. But this will be a very challenging game for them as a team.

Their batters will have to at their best to give themselves any chance of winning this match. The bowlers will also have to be very disciplined with their lines & lengths as the Pakistani batters will be determined to attack them in this match. Nicholas Kirton, Shreyas Movva, Dillon Heyliger & Jeremy Gordon will be the key players for Canada in this match.

Fantasy Cricket Tips for the 22nd Match of the T20 World Cup: Top Dream11 Picks for PAK vs CAN

Top Batter Picks:

  • Babar Azam: Babar Azam will be eager to lead his side from the front and do well in this game. He will open the innings and can score big if Pakistan bats first. He will be a top pick for this match.
  • Mohammad Rizwan: Mohammad Rizwan has looked in decent touch in the first two games and a big score is due from him. He likes to take his time and play till the end. Another top pick for this game.
  • Shreyas Movva: Shreyas Movva’s two scores in the first two games are: 37 & 32 runs. He is a key batter for his team in the middle order and is in good form as well. Movva may fetch points from wicket-keeping as well.

Top All-Rounder Picks:

  • Imad Wasim: Imad Wasim was excellent in the last game against India. He was unlucky to go wicketless but he will fancy his chances against Canada in this match. Imad is capable with the bat as well.
  • Dillon Heyliger: Dillon Heyliger has picked up three wickets in the first two games. He will be a key bowler for his side and can also swing the bat. Heyliger will be a good pick for this match.

Top Bowler Picks:

  • Naseem Shah: Naseem Shah picked up three wickets in the last game against India. He bowled with the new ball which makes him a very valuable fantasy pick for this match.
  • Shaheen Afridi: Shaheen Afridi is capable of picking up 2-3 wickets in the power play and this might be the game where goes berserk with the new ball. Try him as C/VC in this game.
  • Haris Rauf: Haris Rauf has been in good form in the first two games. He picked up three wickets against India and can trouble the Canadian batters with his pace on a tricky batting pitch.
  • Mohammad Amir: Mohammad Amir is another great pick for this game. He can swing the new ball and also bowled well in the death overs against India. 

Other Players to consider in your Fantasy Cricket Teams

  • Shadab Khan: It’s unlikely that Shadab will get the chance to bat in this game and his bowling form is not that great. Pakistan’s pacers are supposed to pick bulk of the wickets so Shadab becomes a bit risky pick for this game. Try him in GLs/Mini GLs.
  • Usman Khan/Saim Ayub (Whoever Plays): Pick whoever plays between Saim Ayub and Usman Khan in this match. Both will bat in the top 3 and can score big especially if Pakistan bats first.
