SG vs BD Dream11: The match no.4 of the Ghazi Amanullah Khan Regional One Day Tournament will witness Speen Ghar Region and Band-e-Amir Region taking on each other. Speen Ghar Region would be looking to put behind their disappointing start in their first game when they could not chase a relatively easy target. Their bowlers were excellent in that game, especially the two legspinners who picked up 6 wickets for just 63 runs. But the batters failed miserably and nobody in the top order could ensure their presence at the crease for a long time. They will look to improve their shoddy batting performance in this game.
On the other side, Band-e-Amir Region too bowled excellently in the first game bowling out the opposition for less than 100 runs. Again the spinners played a big part here and Amir Hamza and Waqar Salamkheil picked up 5 wickets for just 32 runs. Chasing the target in just 18 overs resulted in their net run rate gaining a huge momentum over the other teams which will probably help them in the latter stage of the tournament. They would look to carry on their momentum and would hope their batsmen spend a bit more time in the middle.
