CEP vs SOP Dream11 Prediction
Central Punjab are all set to lock horns with Southern Punjab in the 2nd game of the opening day in the National T20 Cup on Wednesday. Central Punjab had a horrible last season with only one win in five matches. Southern Punjab, on other hand, had a decent tournament. They managed to reach the semifinals of the tournament but failed to win the knockout match. While they would be eager to take another step forward this time, Central Punjab would try to ride on the experience in their squad to make amendments from the last season. Let's take a look at the CEP vs SOP Dream 11 Prediction for this game.

Captain Picks for Small Leagues
Kamran Akmal has scored a total of 5969 runs in 255 T20 games at a strike rate of 134.34. He is a must-pick in the CEP vs SOP Dream 11 fantasy cricket as he scored 251 runs in 9 matches in the PSL 2020.
Shan Masood has scored a total of 1058 runs in 50 T20 games at a strike rate of 117.03. Don't forget to pick him in the CEP vs SOP Dream11 Match prediction as the batsman scored 253 runs in 8 games in PSL 2020.
Captain Picks for Grand Leagues
Naseem Shah has accounted for 8 wickets in 10 T20 games. The young speedster has an economy rate of 7.76 and he would be looking to come firing all cylinders.
Mohammad Irfan would be a crucial player for Southern Punjab. The tall pacer has bagged 147 wickets in 139 T20 games while maintaining an economy rate of 6.61.
Both sides had contrasting fortunes last season. Central Punjab have ample experience in their squad, while Southern Punjab have the right mix of the youth and experience. Central Punjab could be missing their batting mainstay and skipper Babar Azam here. Their batting looks a little thin in his absence. As per our CEP vs SOP today match prediction, Southern Punjab should win this game.
