In their first two games of this season, their late middle-order batsmen have put crucial contributions to those successful chasings.

While Lewis Gregory won the Player of the Match award in the first game for his crucial all-round contributions (2/31 & 49*), all-rounder Faheem Ashraf is also currently in very good form.
