Jammu and Kashmir will face Delhi tomorrow (August 21) in their first match of Buchi Babu All India Invitational tournament at Salem Cricket Foundation Ground, Tamil Nadu.
Wicket-keeper batter Fazil Rashid will make his captaincy debut while spinner Abid Mushtaq will be his deputy in this four-day tourney.
J&K has named a squad with just three pacers and two spinners in the 15, making their bowling look a bit thin.
Delhi has also sent a young squad for the tournament with Himmat Singh leading the side. They played Mumbai in the first match, which ended in a draw without the completion of the first innings.
Although J&K has named a full-fledged senior squad for the tournament, it won’t be easy to challenge the young Delhi side.
Here’s J&K’s predicted playing XI:
Qamran Iqbal, Shubham Khajuria, Henan Nazir, Vivrant Sharma, Musaif Ajaz, Abdul Samad, Fazil Rashid (C), Abid Mushtaq, Auqib Nabi, Umar Nazir, Rohit Sharma/Vishal Kumar
