National T20 Cup Match 11 Squad Comparison

Central Punjab

With 1 win and 2 losses in 3 matches, Central Punjab finds itself at the bottom of the points table in National T20 Cup. After successfully chasing a target of 223 runs against Northern, Central Punjab finished 137-8 in the next match chasing 165 runs against Balochistan. Faheem Ashraf was the top bowler for Central Punjab with 3 for 33 against Balochistan and 3 for 44 against Northern. While Faheem Ashraf was consistent with the ball, Ahmed Shehzad did the same with the bat. Shehzad scored an unbeaten 111 off 63 balls in the successful run chase of 223 runs followed by a 52-runs inning in the next match.

The middle-order consisting of Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, and Rizwan Hussain failed to make any significant contributions as Central Punjab lost by 27 runs chasing 165. Usman Qadir picked 1 wicket in both these matches while maintaining the lowest economy of all the bowlers – 5.00 and 8.00 r.p.o. Naseem Shah finished with 1 for 21 in 4 overs in the last match for Central Punjab and is a crucial bowler in the set-up. While Babar Azam has scored 30 and 4 runs in the last 2 matches opening for his side, the skipper needs to step up and score big since the middle-order isn’t reliable.

Southern Punjab

Southern Punjab is placed at number 5 in the points table with 1 win in 3 matches. While Southern Punjab defeated Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chasing 155 runs with 4 wickets in hand, the next match against Balochistan saw the team end up with 144-7 batting first. Zahir Mahmood was the only wicket-taker for Souther Punjab with 2 for 28 while his team lost by 7 wickets. Wahab Riaz is in good touch with the bat as he scored unbeaten 31 off 17 balls helping the side reach 144 in 20 overs. Previously, Riaz had scored unbeaten 42 off 17 balls chasing 155 runs against Khyber.

Riaz was also the team top bowler against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa finishing with 3 for 28. However, he was wicketless in the very next match conceding 37 runs in 4 overs. While Mohammad Irfan bowled at an economy of 5.25 against Balochistan, he was wicketless and that didn’t help the cause in defending 144 runs. Southern Punjab has big names in their bowling attack like Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hafeez, and Mohammad Irfan. If the three of them get going, along with Hafeez and Riaz hitting it big with the bat, Southern Punjab has a good chance of winning this match.

Our Prediction for Central Punjab vs Southern Punjab

Central Punjab are favorites to win the match

While Central Punjab is the favorite on the top betting sites in India, Southern Punjab can pull a surprise here with the kind of bowling attack they’ve got. If Wahab Riaz and Shoaib Malik walk in to bat in the middle-order after Hafeez and Masood have set the right platform at the top, Southern Punjab could chase a target around 160-170 runs.

While Central Punjab is dependent on a few bowlers and the top wicket-taker Faheem Ashraf has been expensive in the last 2 matches. Central Punjab would back their batsmen Ahmed Shahzad and Babar Azam at the top and Umar Akmal and Saad Nasim in the middle to help the side dominate Southern Punjab.
