Khyber kicked off its National T20 Cup 2019 campaign with a victory over Balochistan successfully chasing 141 runs with 7 wickets in hand.

Our Prediction for Central Punjab vs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Central Punjab is favorite to win the match

Central Punjab has a stronger and more consistent batting line-up when compared to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Also, Central Punjab’s bowlers have done well recently and can overpower Khyber’s struggling top-order, leaving the burden of scoring runs on Khyber’s captain Mohammad Rizwan once again. Top betting sites in India show Central Punjab as a favorite to win this match. However, the difference between the odds and as a result the indicative probability of a win for both teams isn’t much and either of these teams can turn things around for themselves given there’s not much to lose for both of them.
