Race to Semifinal is here now. Well! Yeah, today Central Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will be fighting against each other. This match win is so important as it will take the winning team a step closer to the Semifinals. Both the teams’ CENTRAL PUNJAB and KHYBER PAKHTUNKHWA are at the extreme bottom in the points table. Perhaps, Central Punjab is a step ahead of the KHP as the team has washed off Southern Punjab which gave CEP a point.
KHP lost the game against Northern by 7 wickets which made the team loss of a point and left them only with 2 points. For KHP, this match is really important to keep them surviving in this tournament. No doubt, Central Punjab batting is really commendable, especially when it comes to Babar Azam play.
