Our Prediction For Balkh Legends vs Paktia Panthers Match no. 12

Paktia Panthers will win this match


Paktia Panthers are in a strong position and have the momentum with them winning 3 consecutive matches. Though toss can be a decider in the match as Paktia’s chasing has not been tested in the APL so far.

Paktia Panthers

Paktia Panthers defended a low total of 127 runs against Kandahar Knights in their last match successfully. Isuru Udana has been in a tremendous form and has picked wickets at crucial stage of the game.

Though their batting didn’t come through in their last match, their record against the Balkh Legends in the previous game is a good one.

Paktia Panthers have soccer 200 plus runs against top teams like Kabul Zwanan and the Balkh Legends and is the only team to defeat Balkh Legends in this APL so far.

Their top 4 batsman have scored runs time and again and if they can keep the momentum going even if they have to chase, they can very well turn out to be a champion side in the coming days of the league.

Balkh Legends

Balkh Legends have performed like the legends of the game winning 2 out of 2 matches before Chris Gayle arrived. After Gayle’s arrival they’ve lost 1 and won 1 match in the Afghanistan Premier League 2018.

Colin Munro, Ryan ten Doeschate have been the consistent run scorers for the Balkh Legends along with Ravi Bopara and the captain himself Mohammad Nabi.

They have chased twice in this season so far and won on 1 occasion. Their batting effort doesn’t seem to be match winning as of now. It has been their bowling that has played a key role in winning matches as they’ve won 2 of the 2 matches where they batted first.

Their successful chase came against Kabul Zwanan in the 3rd match of the league and a lot has changed since then.

Watch out for the toss as both these teams are equally competitive and the toss can play a huge factor given that Paktia Panthers’ chasing abilities are untested and Balkh Legends have lost chasing against Paktia Panthers.
