In the battle between the current Afghanistan Skipper and former Afghanistan skipper, Rashid Khan-led Band-e-Amir Dragons will face Asghar Afghan-led Kabul Eagles in the Qualifier 2 of the Afganistan T20 League.
The Dragons didn't have the brightest of the start in the tournament as they lost their 2 opening fixtures. However, they came back strongly to win their next 3 on the trot to finish 2nd in the points table and earned the right to compete in the qualifier 1.
The Eagles, on the other hand, had a complete contrasting start as they won their 3 of their first 3 fixtures just to lose the next 2. The Eagles finished 3rd in the points table and they had to be content with a place in the Eliminator only.
While the Dragons lost to the knights in the Qualifier 1, the Eagles defeated the Tigers to book their berth in the Qualifier 2. Now there is a little to separate both teams and how they respond during the intense moments will decide who is going to earn the bragging rights to compete in the final.
