Imran not in the playing XI. Lets hope the opener replacing him fails miserably :kapil
Ahmed Shehzad playing ahead of Nazir!!
That is an insult of our selectors...Wish he justifies it and makes selectors know what he is able to do...
Nagenhira playing XI: AD Mathews, Ahmed Shehzad, TR Birt, MDUS Jayasundera, B Laughlin, AK Perera, Mushfiqur Rahim, SS Pathirana, BAW Mendis, KG Alvitigala, RMS Eranga
Rahuna Royals Playing XI: AJ Finch, HAPW Jayawardene, SL Malinga, HDRL Thirimanne, MDK Perera, LPC Silva, Shahid Afridi, DM de Silva, DJ Harris, ABT Lakshitha
Sajeewa Weerakoon is good enough to get in the Sri Lanka T20 team but not the Nagas...
Screw watching this then Im off. Hope Nagenhera lose badly and Ahmed Shazad goes for a duck. Im off.

Bloody Joke. The best T20 player left out.

Why would you want a talented Pakistani youngster to fail :facepalm:

It would have been nice to see Imran play, but that was a little OTT mate.
BPL and Faysal Bank T20 have much much better kits then this
no Speed guns also ....

Looks like a flop league already :(
