KDH VS PTK DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | Kandahar Knights vs Paktia Panthers | Afghanistan Premier League 2018
Sharjah, October 17, Wednesday at 09:30 PM IST
After facing 4 wickets defeat against Kabul Zwanan yesterday, Kandahar Knights will reload at Sharjah to take on Paktia Panthers tonight. In today’s doubleheader, while Balkh Legends will lock horns with Nangarhar Leopards in the evening, Knights will meet Panthers for the second time in hope of avenging their previous loss.
In 6 matches Knights have secured just 1 win and are placed at the bottom of the points table with 2 points. With just a couple of games remaining, they would be hoping to secure as many wins as they can and bid adieu to the tournament. Their chance of qualifying to the next round is almost over and will require a lot of permutation and combination along with some luck.
Paktia Panthers are sitting at second spot with four wins in six games. They started their campaign with 3 wickets loss against Kabul Zwanan and came back strongly to register three consecutive wins. In their last encounter, they registered 7 wickets win over Nangarhar Leopards after restricting them at mere 126 runs.
Kandahar Knights and Paktia Panthers locked horns in the 10 fixture of APL 2018 in which Panthers registered 9 runs win over Knights. After winning the toss, Panthers decided to bat and were bowled out at 127-10 in 18. 2 overs.
Coming to chase, Kandahar Knights were jolted with both their openers returning back at just the score of 12 runs. They kept losing wickets at regular interval and could only muster 118-10 in 19.4 overs, falling short of 9 runs.
It will be interesting to watch both teams coming face to face again.
Paul Stirling‘s form has been a worry for the management.
He has failed to produce a single big inning. He might get replaced with Kevin O Brien.

Team 1: Predict the winner
Looking at the run of Paktia Panthers, they might register another easy win over Knights who seem to have lost the momentum since their maiden win. So, there won’t be many surprises if Paktia Panthers turn out to be the winner. M Shahzad will be the right pick for captain and vice-captain as he is in good form and consistently scoring runs. He has scored 3 fifties in 6 games.
Team 2: As per the Pitch Conditions
The matches played at this ground have been high scoring as well as low scoring. The pitch has so far preferred both batsmen as well as bowlers. So, we can expect the same in this match also.
*All-rounders have been the key here. Sikandar Raza, K Janat and Shahid Afridi have all been brilliant with their performances.
