BPH vs TRT, 4th match Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match:
Birmingham’s Liam Livingstone almost pulled off a miraculous chase in the final of last year’s competition. The ballistic all-rounder hasn’t had the best of time with the bat off-late, but the last year’s leading run scorer needs just a few balls to change a course of a game and regain his mojo.
Probable best bowler of the match
Rashid Khan’s bowling exploits is well known around the globe, but knowing one thing and dealing with it are two different things, as the Afghani leggie was a nuisance throughout the competition last year, finishing as the joint top wicket-taker in the inaugural season.
