NYS vs MSA Team Previews

New York Strikers

With 5 wins in 7 matches, the New York Strikers ended the group stage at the second spot on the points table. As they face the Samp Army for a second time this season, the Strikers will be eager to avenge their earlier loss.

Muhammad Waseem and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are the top two scorers for the team and will once again play an important part in this match. However, the batsmen other than them have been rather inconsistent. The middle order consists of players like Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Perera, and Asif Ali, all of whom are quality players but are yet to play a significant inning.

Skipper Kieron Pollard has managed to score just 48 runs in his 7 innings. The Strikers’ seam attack has been one of the biggest strengths for them. Chamika Karunaratne is the leading wicket-taker with 9 wickets and has received good support from Mohammad Amir and Jawadullah, who have picked up 12 wickets between them.

The spin attack consists of Akeal Hosein and Sunil Narine.

Morrisville Samp Army

The Samp Army has been the most consistent performer this season, losing just 1 of the 7 group-stage matches. As a result, they finished at the top of the table with 12 points.

Their latest win came against the Strikers themselves as the Samp Army won the match by 6 wickets. Ibrahim Zadran and Monank Patel are likely to open the batting for the team in this match. The duo hasn’t been in the best of forms but with a spot in the finals up for grabs, they will look to give the team a brisk start.

Moeen Ali, Faf du Plessis, and Andries Gous are the key players in the middle order, while Karim Janat is likely to play the role of a finisher.

The bowling has been one of the biggest keys to the team’s success this season. Qais Ahmed and Salman Irshad are the top two wicket-takers of the tournament and will once again play an important role in this match. Jason Holder has picked up 9 wickets and will play a supporting role in the seam attack.

Bas de Leede, playing his first match of the season on Thursday, picked up 3 wickets and is likely to retain his spot.
