SCL Match 12: Kabul Eagles vs Band-e-Amir Dragons Prediction and Preview

12.09.2020, 10:00 IST
Kabul International Cricket Stadium
Band-e-Amir Dragons will be the first team to play all 5 of their Shpageeza matches this year, and by all accounts, they’ve looked like the leaders of the pack throughout. Only losing one match, and that too by a solitary run, the team now finds itself ready to close its grasp on the top position. Their only possible rival to that hallowed spot is their enemy for their very next match. After their initial setback, Kabul Eagles have turned their fortunes around with a couple of excellent wins, and are now ready to take on the league leaders to potentially threaten their throne. Should they win this one, only Speen Ghar Tigers stand between them and an excellent top spot finish. Before the runs start flowing, let’s take a look at the two parties.

Kabul Eagles Preview & Form

If there’s a team at this tournament that’s been looking better with every passing match, it’s Kabul. Their first match was something of a disaster, their second a good victory, and their third a one-sided romp. Now they stand in 3rd place, but with only 3 games played - which means they can march right past Band-e-Amir Dragons should they win their next two matches. Their last victory, although coming against the out-of-form Amo Sharks, was a resounding success. Some incredible hitting catapulted the team to a massive 223, and try as they might, the Sharks could only manage 162 at the end of their inning. The only complaint a Kabul fan can have about the match is Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s runout at 99.


Band-e-Amir Dragons Preview & Form

With their latest victory - attained as easy as they come - the Dragons have raised the bar quite some way. Leading the pack with 6 points, they will be above and beyond every other team in the league if they win against Kabul. Given their form, they would certainly be considered the favourites. In their last match, their bowlers showed sheer excellence to limit Speen Ghar Tigers to a basic 139/5 after 20 overs. Although only 5 batsmen were dismissed, the Tigers simply couldn’t score much against such bowling and fielding. When it was their turn to bat, they made a solid, gradual start - losing no wickets until 83. After they did lose a wicket, Asghar Afghan came in with a pinch-hitting masterclass to rampage his team’s way to victory with 3.5 overs remaining.



KABUL vs BEAD Match Prediction

The team from the capital will be keen on taking the top spot in the league for the first time since 2016. Expect Samiullah Shinwari and Rahmatullah Gurbaz to show their class with the bat, while Nangeyalia Kharote and Zia-ur-Rehman show their talent with the ball.


BEAD will draw confidence from having beaten Kabul in 3 out of their last four meetings. Expect Sharafuddin Ashraf and Waqar Salamkheil to take wickets, while Usman Ghani and Asghar Afghan continue their batting domination.
