KDH vs NAN Dream11 Grand League | Kandahar Knights vs Nangarhar Leopards | Afghanistan Premier League 2018

Sharjah, October 13 at 09:30 PM IST

The bottom two sides of the APL T20 – Nangarhar Leopards and Kandahar Knights – are pitted against each other tonight at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Nangarhar Leopards breathed a new life after a much-need victory against Kabul Zwanan on Friday (Oct 12). They would want to build on it and try for a similar in the last three games.

Kandahar are struggling at the halfway mark. With four losses in a row, they must flip it and bag four wins in the remaining fixtures for a chance to make the semi.
