KDH vs NAN Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Sharjah, October 13 at 09:30 PM IST
The two sides reeling at the bottom of the APL table – Kandahar Knights and Nangarhar Leopards – faceoff in the second of the Saturday doubleheader at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium.
Nangarhar Leopards got their campaign off to a winning start but have failed to get a favourable result in the next two. With three games to go, they would be looking for a turnaround to catch up other franchises ahead of them on the points table.
Kandahar Knights are having a horror tournament. With four defeats on the bounce, time is running out for them and one more slip up would be the end of their campaign.
Pitch conditions: Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium has produced fair contests between the bat and the ball so far in the tournament.
Last T20 result at the venue: Balkh Legends 143/7 defeat Nangarhar Leopards 118 all-out – October 11, Afghanistan Premier League 2018
Andre Russell has returned home and will not partake in the competition any further.
Sandeep Lamichhane has arrived and could feature tonight for Nangarhar Leopards.
