KAR vs QUE Probable Best Performers

Probable best batter

Jason Roy:

The aggressive English opener has the ability to rip apart any bowling attack on his day. He failed to fire in the opening game against Multan Sultans and will be eager to get some runs under his belt against Karachi Kings.

Probable best bowler

Mohammed Amir:

The Pakistan veteran seamer picked up 2/30 in four overs in Karachi’s last game against Islamabad United. Amir looked in great rhythm after having a forgetful outing in the first match. The left-arm fast bowler will look to continue his great form against Quetta Gladiators.
