Balkh Legends Team News & Playing 11
BL Team News
Chris Gayle could make his first appearance in the competition, having signed off his List A career with Jamaica with a century in his final Super50 Cup appearance last week. The big question will be who he replaces, with Colin Munro, Ryan ten Doeschate and Ravi Bopara all having scored runs so far. Ben Laughlin, expensive in both games so far, could be the man to make way instead – that would also mean a home-based bowler replacing Usman Ghani in the line-up to retain the current balance. Mirwais Ashraf missed the last match and was replaced in the Balkh Legends line-up by teenager Qais Ahmad.
BL Key Players
Colin Munro was back to his best last time out, with the New Zealander – top scorer in the Caribbean Premier League with 567 runs at an average of 51.54 – smashing 46 from 24 balls at the top of the order.
Chris Gayle’s arrival could be eye-catching too. A T20 legend, with more centuries in the format than any other cricketer, the 39-year-old arrives in good form on the back of his 122 for Jamaica in the Regional Super50 Cup.
Ravi Bopara has also been in the runs – his 34 last time out, following on from an unbeaten 38 against Kabul Zwaman. That game against Kabul also saw Ryan ten Doeschate his 78 not out from 46 balls – his 26th T20 50.
With the ball, captain Mohammad Nabi has taken three wickets and bowled economically so far. He was outshone by Gulbadin Naib last time out, however, who took 4-12 from four overs and now has 5-33 from seven in the tournament so far.
Balkh Legends Predicted Playing 11
- Colin Munro, Chris Gayle, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara, Darwish Rasooli, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Ali Khil, Gulbadin Naib, Mirwais Ashraf, Qais Ahmad, Aftab Alam
Paktia Panthers Team News & Playing 11
PP Team News
Paktia Panthers replaced Calum MacLeod and Tahir Khail last time out, with Azmatullah Omarzai and Isuru Udana coming in. Udana’s bowling was key to their win against Nangarhar Leopards so they could well be unchanged to face Balkh Legends as a result.
PP Key Players
Mohammad Shahzad continued his fine batting form last time out, with his 31-ball 53 making it back-to-back half centuries in the APL so far. He came into the tournament in good form too, on the back of 124 against India in the Asia Cup and 53 against Bangladesh in his previous knock before that.
Sikandar Raza top-scored in the first game, however – hitting 78 not out from 40 balls. With the Zimbabwean unavailable for his country due to a dispute, their loss is Paktia Panthers’ gain.
Isuru Udana’s return made a difference against Nangarhar Leopards last time out, meanwhile. The Sri Lankan opener took 2-28 from his four overs, ensuring the Leopards were always behind the required run rate as a result.
Paktia Panthers Predicted Playing 11
- Mohammad Shahzad, Ihsanullah, Cameron Delport, Sikandar Raza, Shahid Afridi, Samiullah Shenwari, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Azmatullah Omarzai, Isuru Udana, Zia-ur-Rehman, Yousuf Zazai, Tahir Khail
Balkh Legends vs Paktia Panthers Prediction
Balkh Legends have made a great start to the APL so far, and with Chris Gayle arriving that could get even better. Paktia Panthers’ boast in-form Mohammad Shahzad but the Legends can come out on top.
