Afghanistan Premier League, 2018
Balkh Legends vs Kabul Zwanan, 14th Match | BAL vs KAB WHO WILL WIN
The 14th match of the Afghanistan Premier League will see Balkh Legends take on Kabul Zwanan in what is expected to be a pulsating encounter.
The Legends’ currently find themselves at the second spot in the points table with three wins in four completed fixtures.
After suffering a 37-run loss against Paktia Panthers, the Mohammad Nabi-led unit fought back via its imperious bowling strength to restrict Nangarhar Leopards’ to 118 in their defense of 143.
The target was set primarily due to steady middle-order contributions by Colin Munro (33) and Ryan ten Doeschate (35).
After registering two back-to-back wins in the tournament, Kabul Zwanan failed to make it three in a row as they squandered what looked like an easy chase of 183 after Zazai (40) and Luke Ronchi (50) had put on an 80-run opening stand.
But, Mujeeb ur Rahman (3-29) and the eventual Player of the Match, Rahmat Shah (3-25) produced a scintillating collapse to restrict them to 9-167 in 20 overs.
Tomorrow’s game will be the second time that these two teams’ will lock horn after playing out the tournament opener.
Balkh Legends won that game, overhauling Zwanan’s 6-176 thanks to a swashbuckling 46-ball-78 by Ryan ten Doeschate, overhauling pulsating half-centuries from Laurie Evans (64) and skipper Rashid Khan (56).
With such a sub-plot in the background, the game promises to be a humdinger as both sides’ aim to consolidate their surge to the top of the points table.
