Teams Comparison – APL Final
The Balkh Legends have been playing every match as the true legends of the game and the league. Their might in the batting department has toppled the opposition time and again.
Moreover, the performances by their bowlers in the semi-final 2 were exceptional which got the Nangarhar Leopards all out for 64 runs. Mohammad Nabi picked 4 for 12 while Qais Ahmed picked 3 for 18.
Qais Ahmed has been economical with the ball throughout the league and has also been among the wicket takers for the Balkh Legends.
He bowled 4 overs at an economy of 6.75 and picked a wicket against Kabul Zwanan when the latter had scored 223 chasing 245 runs.
Mohammad Nabi was also good with the bat in the semi-final where he scored 47off 16 deliveries. If the top 4 batsmen, that includes Chris Gayle, Darwish Rasooli, C Munro and Mohammad Nabi all fire like they did in the previous match, the Balkh will have a higher chance of winning.
Kabul Zwanan and Balkh Legends last went head-to-head in match no.14 and it was a night to remember. 450 plus runs were scored in that match and Hazratullah Zazai hit 6 sixes to Abdullah Mazari.
Kabul Zwanan have been a strong competitor with the bat when it comes to chasing big totals with a finisher like Rashid Khan fighting it out till the end and seeing his team win.
Rashid Khan and Laurie Evans ended the Kabul innings on a high posting 192 runs on the board in 20 overs. A total like this is very competitive and chasing 193 is always a tough ask in a semi-final set-up for any team.
Kabul learned from their previous match against Paktia Panthers where the Panthers quite easily chased 169 and made a solid comeback in the semi-final scoring 192 and getting Paktia Panthers all out for 102.
Rashid Khan gave an all-round performance scoring 35 off 19 balls and picking 4 wickets for 20 runs later defending the 192-runs total.
Rashid Khan will be crucial in the final as well both with the ball and bat. Team batting first will definitely have an advantage as both the teams have been scoring high totals when batting first. And chasing in a final irrespective of the total is alway a tough job as the match turns into a game of nerves.
Both teams have given a world-class bowling and bating performance in semi-finals and a high 1st innings score in the finals is very likely. Team with better bowling in the death overs will have an edge in this match.
