KDH VS KAB DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | Kandahar Knights vs Kabul Zwanan | Afghanistan Premier League 2018
Sharjah, October 16, Tuesday at 09:30 PM IST
Third-spot holder, Kabul Zwanan would be eyeing to cement their place in the next round of Afghanistan Premier League when they face off Kandahar Knights for the second time at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium, Sharjah in tonight’s encounter.
Kandahar Knights eye a place in semi-finals:
With 3 wins and 3 defeats in 6 games, Knights are sitting at third place in the league tables. They have lost their last two encounters against Nangarhar Leopards and Balkh Legends and would be hoping to come strongly against Kandahar Knights over whom they have clinched dramatic 2 runs when both the teams met for the first time.
Knights last win came in their fourth match against Kandahar Knights when both the teams met for the first time in the eighth fixture. Batting first, Zwanan posted 173/6 in the allotted overs and succeeded in restricting Kandahar Knight at 171/7 in 20 overs, resulting in 2 runs win.
Knights charged with their maiden win:
Kandahar Knights, who are placed at the bottom, registered their first win of the tournament against Nangarhar Leopards in their last fixture. They were on 4 matches losing streak and would be charged after securing a convincing 26 runs win over Leopards.
It will be interesting to watch both the teams coming face to face once again.
After securing an easy win over Leopards, Knights are expected to feature the same playing 11.
There is an outside chance of Kevin O’Brien replacing out of form Paul Stirling.
Zwanan might bring back Zahir Shehzad in place of Shawkat Zaman.

Predict the winner
What if an all-around performance helps Kabul Zwanan bounce back strongly against Kandahar Knights and help them break their two-match losing streak. If Kabul Zwanan turns out to be the winner, then Luke Ronchi, Laurie Evans, Hazratullah Zazai and Rashid Khan will have to play the role of captain and vice-captain.
Now, what if charged with the first win of the tournament, Knights somehow manage to cross the line and register their second consecutive win. We should not forget the first meeting of both the teams in which Zwanan won by just 2 runs. However, B McCullum, Karim Janat and Asghar Afghan will have to take up the charge.
*Paul Stirling is a bit risky.
As per Pitch Conditions:
If we see a couple of past matches played here, we can notice both high-scoring as well as low-scoring matches. The pitch here assists both batsmen as well as bowlers. So, why not pick a team consisting of more batsmen and more bowlers.
