Pakistan T20 Cup: CEP vs SIN Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Team And Preview


Central Punjab and Sindh will face off each other in the second match of the National T20 Cup shortly after the game between Balochistan and Khyber concludes. Both these sides are quite formidable in their own rights, but Central Punjab are led by their charismatic captain in Babar Azam and hence would be considered to be quite favorites to clinch this match in their favor. This tournament is of utmost importance to the Pakistanis especially after the thrashing they received from a second-string Sri Lankan side at home just a few days back.

Match Details: 

National T20 Cup 2019

Central Punjab vs Sindh

Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad

October 13th, 2019

8:00 PM IST

Weather Report: 

Clear weather with no chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 31 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.

Pitch Report: 

The track could be expected to be quite conducive to the batsmen, particularly so early on in the tournament and batting second might be advisable due to dew affecting the bowling side late in the evening.

Predicted Playing XI: 

Central Punjab:

Salman Butt and Kamran Akmal opening the batting would surely take the Pakistani fans down the memory lane of more than a decade! But, on a more serious note, Babar Azam will shoulder the majority of the responsibility of the batting order along with Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal who endured a very poor series against the visiting Lankan side. Saad Naseem would be the key bowler for Pakistan.

Kamran Akmal (WK), Salman Butt, Babar Azam (C), Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal, Bilal Asif, Fahim Ashraf, Naseem Shah, Zafar Gohar, Saad Naseem, Usman Qadir


Abid Ali and Asad Shafiq are the key batsmen for Sindh at the top whilst Sarfaraz Ahmed would be banked upon to the lead the side with aplomb through both his captaincy and batting in the middle order. Mohammad Hasnain and Sohail Khan are the other crucial players for Ahmed’s unit.

Abid Ali, Khurram Manzoor, Asad Shafiq, Saad Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed (C & WK), Fawad Alam, Anwar Ali, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Hasnain, Saud Shakeel Ahsan Ali, Sohail Khan

Top Picks: 

As this is just the very start of the tournament, it would be difficult to draw up numbers to justify the selection of certain players in the Dream XI side. However, Babar Azam was in an absolutely fantastic touch in the Vitality T20 Blast and is the world’s number one ranked batsman in this format of the game and hence his inclusion is mandatory. Fahim Ashraf, Asad Shafiq and probably Kamran Akmal are others who can be relied upon to earn a considerable number of points from this match.

1: Babar Azam

2: Saad Ali
