Lahore has a slight edge over Sydney in the final because of its bowling line-up - Wasim Akram, Imran Khan, Saqlain Mushtaq and Abdul Qadir. So good is their attack that Sarfaraz Nawaz, Wahab Riaz and Imran Tahir have been relegated to the bench.

The batting line-up isn't too shabby either: Mohammad Yousuf, Babar Azam, Saleem Malik, Umar and Kamran Akmal and Aamer Sohail. Not to forget that Imran, Abdul Razzaq and Akram are more than handy with the bat.

You can argue that Sydney has batsmen like the Waughs, Smith, Warner and Clarke, who can deal with any bowling line-up, and that their pace attack is fearsome, with tall fast bowlers like Starc, Gillespie and Bracken. However, they don't have any quality spinners or a proper wicketkeeper in their squad - so Warner will have to take the gloves.
Voice of reason.

Completely off-topic, but did anyone spot the new Zim Kit pictured below that article?

Although I'm not sure BT would look quite as cute in it as Deepti Sharma :)
