  • M Mortaza and M Rahman are best in these 3.

Fantasy Tips:

  • In wicket keeper option M Rahim and S Ahmed both are good but Sarfraz position is not fixed so Rahim will be safer choice among the 3.
  • Try to cover all important batsman on this wicket.
  • On this Cardiff ground Bangladesh had beaten Newzealand in previous year champion trophy whereas they have beaten Australia in 2005 also.
