CEP vs SIN Dream11: The 18th match of the National T20 Cup 2020 will be played between the sides who have struggled in the competition so far. Central Punjab will take on Sindh in the Pindi Club Ground in Rawalpindi. Central Punjab defeated the table-toppers Northern comprehensively to bring their tournament back on track. With big names such as Babar Azam and Faheem Ashraf performing as per their expectations in the last game, Central Punjab will look to move forward towards the semifinals.
Sindh, on the other side are lurking at the bottom half of the points table. They will need their key players like Sharjeel Khan, Sohail Khan and skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to perform in order to get their performance back on track. They have some explosive and talented players in their squad and will need to perform as a unit to give a fight to the strong looking Central Punjab team.
Fixture name: Central Punjab vs Sindh
Competition: National T20 Cup 2020
Date: 10 October 2020
Time: 8 PM IST
Ground: Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi
Brief score of the last result at the venue: Central Punjab 167/2 (17 overs) beat Northern 165/9 (20 overs) by 8 wickets
Central Punjab performed exceedingly well in the last game with their skipper Babar Azam scoring a match-winning 86. But Faheem Ashraf was the player to watch out. He not only picked up 4 wickets but also stitched a match-winning 105-run partnership with his captain to steer his side home. The return of these quality players has given Central Punjab a new hope that they desperately needed. They do have the likes of Kamran Akmal, Ehsan Adil and young Abdullah Shafique in their line-up too. There have been no injury concerns in the team and they are likely to field the same eleven as the last match.
Sindh, on the other hand, have struggled to perform as a unit. Their bowlers have struggled on flat wickets of Multan. Their fast bowlers will have to come to the party if they are to challenge a strong Central Punjab batting. No injury concerns in the team will mean they would not change their line-up to a great extent.
The weather will be sunny in the day and there are no chances of rain. But night match ensures that dew will be a factor going into this game and the team winning the toss may chose to bowl first. So consider this factor while making this CEP vs SIN Dream11 team.

Babar Azam- The Central Punjab and Pakistan skipper needs no introduction. The world No.1 T20 batsman in the world scored a match winning 86 to steer his side home while chasing a decent score of 166. His innings was his usual low-risk innings which included 11 fours and 2 sixes. His consistency in this form of the game is his main strength and players like him deserve a place in this CEP vs SIN Today Match Prediction.
Abdullah Shafique- Shafique has the highest run-scorer in the competition so far at a brilliant average of 47. The young 20-year old has been a surprise package this year and at No.3, he has a chance to add more runs in his tally.
Faheem Ashraf- The allrounder showed his worth in the last game when he single-handedly took his side to a comfortable victory. Very rarely we see a performance like that in which a player takes a 4-wicket haul and also scores a blistering half-century to win the game for his side. This makes him an easy pick in this CEP vs SIN Dream11 team.
Sharjeel Khan- The powerful left-handed opener scored a brilliant 90 in the last game which included 6 sixes. He has been striking the ball quite nicely and can be a valuable player for his side in this match if he gets going.
Sarfaraz Ahmed- The skipper of Sindh will need to perform with the bat and lead from the front. Batting in the middle order, he has the ability to rotate the strike and can play the sweep shot to great effect. He will be crucial to his team’s chances.
Anwar Ali- The allrounder has had a quite tournament so far with both bat and ball but he scored 37 off just 17 balls against Northern. He will need to replicate performances like those and bring his experience into play.
Kamran Akmal- The wicketkeeper-batsman is one of the most successful and consistent batters of the Pakistan domestic circuit. At the top of the order, he is still dangerous and can provide a blistering start to his side.
Mir Hamza- The left-arm fast bowler is one of the best talents of the fast bowling recruits of the country but has played just 2 games in the tournament so far. He is a genuine wicket-taker with the new ball and has a good Yorker too
Zafar Gohar- The left-arm spinner has been one of the most economical bowlers in the circuit though he has been out of form this season. But he has performed with the bat and showed his all-round abilities.
