Preview for Dream11 Fantasy:

The first game on Monday in SCL 2019 pits Amo Sharks against Mis Ainak Knights in one of the most awaited clashes of the league. Both teams currently occupy two spots in the top four itself with two wins each. While the Amo Sharks come into this game on the back of a morale-boosting win against Kabul Eagles, Mis Ainak Knights look to spring back into winning ways in Kabul.
Both teams have ample international experience in their sides with the likes of Mohammad Nabi and Rahmat Shah featuring in this game. All eyes will be on young Ibrahim Zadran, who tops the run-scoring charts with 218 runs in just four outings. Along with Usman Ghani and Mirwais Ashraf, he has been the standout player for them.

Although they will fancy their chances of pulling off a win, they come across and equally strong Mis Ainak Knights side led by Mohammad Nabi. With a good bowling attack in their ranks, it should make for a good contest against the opposition batsmen who are in good form as well.
