After an exciting group stage with some brilliant cricket played by all eight sides, things are only going to get even more exciting as the very biggest names in cricket come together for the Super 10 stages of #WT20. We’ve picked out the 10 stars to watch throughout the rest of the tournament:
1. Gulbadin Naib (Afghanistan)
Gulbadin Naib is a crucial all-rounder for Afghanistan. In the recently concluded One-Day International series against Zimbabwe, Naib was instrumental, hitting an unbeaten on 82 off just 68 deliveries, when it chased 249 for victory. Staring down the barrel at 146 for 6, Naib (with good support from Rashid Khan) helped Afghanistan to seal the thriller with two balls remaining. Naib’s strike rate looms around the 130s, more than useful in this format. Naib’s contribution down the order where he can smoke a few and finish off well, will be vital for Afghanistan’s progress during the World Cup.
