Scotland captain Coetzer picked Babar as the probable best batter and Shakib as best bowler
Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer predicted that Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan will be the best bowler in this edition of the Twenty20 World Cup, which is set to start Sunday jointly in Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
Coetzer and his troop will face off Shakib and his Bangladesh team on the very first day of cricket's third biggest extravaganza.
Before the T20 World Cup, a virtual chat called "Captain's Call" took place every day.
Coetzer was joined Saturday by Pakistan captain Babar Azam, Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka and Oman captain Jisan Maqsood.
Anchored by former Irish cricketer and commentator Niall O'Brien, the captains shared their thoughts at the event.
At one point, O'Brien wanted to know from the four captains who are going to be the best batter and bowler in this world event.
First came the turn of Coetzer who picked up Babar as the probable best batter and Shakib as best bowler.
He also admitted that facing Shakib in the tournament's opening game will be hugely challenging for his side.
The Oman captain also chose Babar as the batter but he didn't name any specific bowler.
The Sri Lankan captain named India's Rohit Sharma as the probable best batter and Afghanistan's Rashid Khan as the best bowler possible.
Babar predicted that New Zealand captain Kane Williamson will be the best batter while he picked up his teammate Hasan Ali as the best bowler.
