A wicket keeper, quick bowler and spinner already selected. A batsman who can bat early in the game could be high priority for the Manchester Originals. Will Steve Smith still be available with the sixth pick though?

Saqib Mahmood will likely take the ball at the start of the game so will they need to pick a bowler for the crucial balls at the end of the game? The local quick bowler, Mahmood, is still young and an experienced overseas bowler could also act as a mentor.

A back-up wicketkeeper would be wise too should Jos Buttler get injured or be on international duty.
