    First game against Multan, our new rivals. The sim is being kind to us with 2/2 wins in our practice matches, hopefully that continues. Maybe today's MS vs QG game in the PSL was foreshadowing tomorrow's PCL result. @Manager101 Do you know what team combo you're going with?

    Yes, moreover our best bowler didn't play in both games.

    I will post the provisional line-up in next post to discuss the pre-match situation.

    Keep in mind the mid season changes. So we can change someone to a batsman in the second half of the season.

    You have three international players there - we are only allowed two.

    Maybe replace Sohail Khan with another bowler. And I wouldn’t play Miller as an opener - one of the openers usually tend to get out early.

    To save Miller from new ball, I will put him at No.3 and you @ No. 4, while Abdul (RHB) will open with Fakhar (LHB).

    How is that ?

    Edit: Myself and Abdul can open instead of Fakhar

    Round 1 was quite unlucky for us since our best batsmen failed to score runs.

    In round 2, we face Islamabad who are playing at home, lets see what pitch variation they use and then we can plan further.

    Guys, our next match is against Peshawar Zalmi and we play at our home ground. Currently I am thinking of a flat pitch to give some boost to our batting, moreover Peshawar struggled on flat pitch in round 1. International players we could use are Johnson and Miller.

    OR

    Should we go for normal pitch and play Miller only ?

    Don’t go for Normal. It will suit them I think.

    Go for flat or Spicey and play Miller.

    Since we will be playing on a batting surface, I am thinking about using the following line-up:

    Provisional Line-up (Round 3) :

    1. Watsupdoc - (vc) (wk)
    2. David Miller - (International)
    3. Manager101 - (capt)
    4. Abdul
    5. Fakhar Zaman
    6. sadida97
    7. Mitchell Johnson - (International)
    8. Hamad_H
    9. Greenstorm
    10. imshally81
    11. Sohail Khan

    It's a bit of a gamble, but if the top-order can give us a flying start, we can post a score close to 200 and our bowling strength should be able to defend it.

    Thoughts ?

    I would open with Miller and Fakhar. It’s too risky to open with both your best batsmen (essentially you are putting their best bowlers against your best batsmen.

    So I would suggest - open with Miller and Fakhar

    And me at 4.

    We play Lahore Qalandars in round 4 and they have chosen Flat pitch. Although there ground conditions supports high seam and swing, hence @LastManstanding (RMF) will be our 4th seamer.

    Provisional Line-up (Round 4) :

    1. Fakhar Zaman
    2. sadida97
    3. David Miller - (International)
    4. Watsupdoc - (vc) (wk)

    Pancake will favor Karachi since they have a Platinum bat in Red Devil and a destructive international bat Mccullum.

    I am thinking we should go with spicy to give our Platinum bowler @Hamad_H full advantage in home conditions.

    What say ?

    Go spicy or even devilish with Thisara playing as a 4th seamer so we have the extra player who can bat.

    We need player type changes. What are the thoughts? We definitely need to convert someone to a Bat? Maybe MIG?
