After a slow start to CPL 2019, Mohammad Hafeez has gotten off to starts at the top of the order. His off-spin has also be utilized by Carlos Brathwaiteat times which could yield a wicket or two on a turning track. Colin Munro has 215 runs in just six innings at an average of 43. Although the numbers do make for good reading, he is due for a match-winning performance this year.
