Afghanistan Premier League, 2018
Kabul Zwanan vs Nangarhar Leopards, 6th Match
The sixth match of the 2018 Afghanistan Premier League will see Kabul Zwanan take pm Nangarhar Leopards as both sides to shrug off the defeat of their previous encounter.
Kabul Zwanan comes into this match on the back of a chastening eight-wicket defeat after they failed to defend 6-176 against the Balkh Legends. Put into bat by the Balkh Legends, Kabul Zwanan’s top-order in Ronchi (11), Zazai (7) and Colin Ingram (9) failed to provide a steady start and it was only Laurie Evans’s 64 and skipper Rashid Khan’s swashbuckling 27-ball-56 that took them to a defendable 6-176 in 20 overs.

But, the target proved to be insufficient against a rampaging Balkh Legends’ batting line-up, who despite not having the services of Chris Gayle romped home in 18.5 overs with Ryan ten Doeschate spearheading the effort with a 46-ball-78- an innings which included seven 4s and four sixes. Rashid Khan was the pick of the bowlers for his side with figures of 1-24 in his quota of four overs.
They’ll face Nangarhar Leopards, who too, come into this game on the back of a 21-run defeat at the hands of Paktia Panthers after they failed to chase down 185 despite Ben Cutting’s pulsating 39-ball-71. Cutting, who was the leading wicket-taker for his side (3-25) came into bat with Nangarhar reeling at 5-51 in pursuit of 185.
The Aussie all-rounder stitched a 112-stand with Hasmatullah Shahidi (49 off 36 balls), but it was all too late as Pakhtia Panthers’ held their nerves in the final overs to hand a 21-run defeat to the Leopards’.
