MCC XI have a lot of experience in their squad. If they get a bat first, Kumar Sangakkara will be the best option for captaincy since he can play a big inning. On the other side, if they bowl first, then all-rounders Roelof van der Merwe and Ravi Bopara will make a lot of impact in the game. So, these three will be the key to success in fantasy cricket.
MCC XI will start as the favorites but Pakistan Shaheens should give them a run for their money.
