How They Stack Up

It is quite clear that the Northern Warriors have a more balanced unit since they have all-rounders like Sammy, Russell and Billings while the bowling unit looks sorted with Riaz and Raza. The batting unit is also sorted with Simmons and Pooran among others. The Qalandars look a little weak on paper and have been affected by the exodus of several Pakistan national cricketers. Afridi notwithstanding, the rest of the team will depend heavily on Chris Jordan and Samit Patel while Luke Ronchi should be a good batting bet for them.

While cricket is always full of surprises, the Northern Warriors are expected to romp home with this one. They have the more balanced side and of course, people like Russell and Sammy make a big difference in the scheme of things.
