CEP vs NOR Dream11 Prediction: Some miscalculations from Central Punjab's team management cost them the opening game. They declared at 243 in the 2nd inning of their match against Sindh, perhaps ignoring the fact that the opponent could press hard with the bat which they did, winning the game by 6 wickets with 50 balls left in the match (IST). But even in that defeat, there were enough reasons for the team to feel optimistic going into the rest of the tournament. They have a good batting, while they did talk with the ball in the first inning when they bowled Sindh out for 239 runs. They will look to correct the bits and pieces performance with a more solid outing when they take on Northern Cricket team in the second game at Al-madina hotel cricket stadium on Saturday morning (IST).
But the opponents, Northern, will be feeling more heat. Not just because they lost the first game, the host also lost for that matter, the manner in which they lost against Sindh, showed that they have to increase their game by some margins to remain relevant in the season. Here is CEP vs NOR Dream 11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.

Ahmed Shehzad: Doesn't need an intro at all. He is an elite Pakistani batsman who has been at the top level. That said, lack of consistency is something that hasn't helped him fulfil the vast potential he has. He could do with a good inning here IN CEP vs NOR Dream11 Prediction match.
Waqas Maqsood: Wreaked havoc in Sindh's batting line-up in the 1st inning of the last game and can do the same here as well.
Grand League Tips
Usman Salahuddin: Good and solid lower-order batsman. He had a good game-1 as he scored some vital runs. He can be a dark horse here in this match.
Mohammad Saad: Central's batting runs deep and he is one of those players who can pop up with something really special. Keep an eye on him.
Hasan Ali: Failed to have an impact in the 2nd inning of the last game when his team needed him the most but we all know how good he can be. Don't count him out.
