The Maldives captain is another person worth selecting in your fantasy team. Mohamed Mahfooz has 3 wickets in their 2 games so far. Another person who has been good for the team is Umar Adam who has bagged 3 wickets in his 2 games as well, to go with 17 runs in 2 games. However, he opens the batting and is due a better score after 2 failures for Maldives.


There are a number of superstars in this team and if your fantasy league permits, select a 7-4 fantasy team in favour of Malaysia. First name on the team sheet has to be all-rounder Syed Aziz. After already being the highest run-scorer in the series, he smashed 50+ to consolidate his position at the top of that list. Along with him, Shafiq Sharif and Ahmed Faiz are #2 and #3 on that list.

You can pick them all in your Dotball (Sign-up and get Rs. 51 FREE) fantasy team where Shariq becomes your wicket-keeper pick. Muhamad Syahadat is another all-rounder with 53 runs and 5 wickets but remember, he has only played 2 games so far. Muhammad Anwar is their frontline bowler who has 7 wickets and he can’t be missed in this team either.
