Afghanistan Premier League, 2018
Nangarhar Leopards vs Kabul Zwanan, 11th Match | NAN vs KAB WHO WILL WIN
The Big Picture
The 11th match of the 2018 Afghanistan Premier League will witness Nangarhar Leopards’ take on Kabul Zwanan at Sharjah in what is expected to be a crucial encounter for the former.
Nangarhar Leopards’ campaign has tapered off after their opening game which they won by six wickets. That win has been succeeded by back-to-back defeats at the hands of Paktia Panthers (by 21 runs) and Kabul Zwanan (by seven wickets), the very opposition they’ll lock horns with on Friday.
Kabul Zwanan, on the other hand, has won two of their games thus far and would hope for an encore against the Leopards’ on Friday.
The last encounter between these two sides witnessed a special knock from Hazratullah Zazai, as the Afghan batsman stroked. whirlwind 124 off 55 balls to help his side chase down 191 overshadowing Anton Devcich’s 58- ball- 94.
Courtesy Zazai’s 124, Kabul chased the target with ease in the 18th over with none of the Leopards’ bowlers including the vile Mujeeb Ur Rahman (0-45 in 3 overs) able to make an impact. Zahir Khan was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 1-20 in 3.5 overs but Ben Cutting will hope that the addition of Andre Russell spurs the side to script a turnaround.

All-rounder – Rashid Khan (81 runs & 2 wickets), Ben Cutting (92 runs & 10 wickets) have contributed with both bat and ball and ideal choices for captain/vice-captain. Shahidullah Kamal, who picked up the Player of the Match award for his 21-ball-33 in the last game is also a good bet for the all-rounder’s spot.
Bowlers – Zahir Khan (5 wickets at 17.40), Wayne Parnell (3 wickets) and Muslim Musa, who claimed two wickets in the last game are ideal bets in the bowling department.
