Picture a fan walking into a shopping mall to buy an electronic ticket. A day later, he goes to Silver Stadium hoping to witness Silver Strikers in action.

In keeping with tradition, SportsXtra picks a squad of stand-out players for the 2012/13 season which wound up on Sunday in Malawi. As the curtain fell, Silver Strikers were declared champions while Escom United, Kabwafu United and Bvumbwe Research were relegated. SportsXtra sticks to a conventional 4-4-2 formation.
