The 4th match of the ongoing Afghanistan Premier League will see Nangarhar Leopards take on Paktia Panthers at the Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium on Sunday.
Paktia Panthers started their campaign on a losing note despite a superlative batting performance that saw them accumulate 4-218 in 20 overs. Mohammad Shahzad (67) and Sikander Raza (78) were the spearheads of their batting unit as the duo enthralled everyone with their pulsating stroke-play.
Venue:- Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium, Sharjah
Match Timing:- Sunday, October 07, 2018, 05:30 PM IST
But, on a flat track with short boundaries, the target proved to be inadequate as Laurie Evans’ 39-ball-79 deflated their bowling attack and romped past the finishing line in 19.1 overs. Sharafuddin Ashraf, with 2-40, was the pick of the bowlers for Paktia Panthers.
They’ll face what looks like a formidable Nangarhar Leopards side led by Ben Cutting. In Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher, the Leopards’ boast of a power-packed top-order to go with the likes of Anton Devich, who has proved his worth as an all-rounder in T20 leagues around the world. The Leopards’ also boast of mystery spinners in Zaheer Khan (chinaman) and Mujeeb Zadran, who can be a vital asset during the powerplay overs as was evident in the just concluded Asia Cup.
