KDH vs BAL Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Sharjah, October 07 at 09:30 PM IST
Balkh Legends are pitted against Kandahar Knights in the first game of the Sunday doubleheader at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium.
Balkh Legends got their Afghanistan Premier Legaue campaign off to a winning start on Saturday night. Asked to chase a total of 176, Balkh Legends did it without much fuss, getting there with 11 balls and 8 wickets remaining.
On the other hand, Kandahar Knights could not get their campaign off to a favourable start and would be looking to get off the mark here. In their opening game, they had a few hiccups in the batting and would want to overcome them.
Pitch conditions: Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium has been a batting-friendly surface and it was evident from the opening game of the competition where over 400 runs were scored.
There is uncertainty over Chris Gayle’s availability. He is likely to miss the game.
