Balochistan faces Southern Punjab in the upcoming fixture of the Pakistan T20 Cup 2019. After notching back to back victories in their last two games over Sindh and Central Punjab, Balochistan looks to make it three wins on the trot with another triumph in this contest. On the other hand, Southern Punjab also enters the game on the back of a win against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and a victory here will help them gather vital positive momentum going further into the competition.
Balochistan vs Southern Punjab
17th October 2019
2:00 PM IST
Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad
Bright sunny conditions with no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 32 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
The surface will offer a little bit of assistance to the pacers with the new ball whilst the spinners could have a major impact on the game as the track starts slowing down.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Awais Zia and Imam-ul-Haq are the pillars of the batting unit whereas Bismillah Khan has emerged as a dangerous batsman that is adept at striking the ball to all parts of the ground. Amad Butt snared three scalps in the previous game and should be among the wickets on a surface that will suit his strengths.
Imam-ul-Haq, Awais Zia, Hussain Talat, Haris Sohail (C), Imran Farhat, Bismillah Khan (WK), Amad Butt, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Asghar, Umar Gul, Akif Javed
Skipper Shan Masood will lead the way in the batting department and will be expecting support from the likes of Sohaib Maqsood and Saif Baidar with the willow in hand. Wahab Riaz is an integral part of this team as he offers plenty of value with both bat and bowl.
Shan Masood (C), Mohammad Hafeez / Agha Salman, Saif Badar, Sohaib Maqsood, Umar Siddiq, Aamer Yamin / Shoaib Malik, Sami Aslam, Mohammad Irfan, Umaid Asif, Wahab Riaz, Zahid Mahmood
Awais Zia is a must-pick courtesy of his glowing recent displays. He has registered scores of 77 and 56 in his last two games and can be backed to continue his good form ahead of this encounter. In the previous fixture, Wahab Riaz put in a fantastic all-round performance. After picking up three wickets in the first inning, he plundered a quick-fire 42 from just 17 deliveries to help his side complete the chase with ease. Thus, he is a certainty in the Dream11 Team whilst Imam-ul-Haq and Amad Butt too would be solid additions to your fantasy side.
