Kabul Eagles Preview & Form
The Eagles, after failing to make much of an impact in the two seasons since they were last champions, are proving to be the dark horses of this tournament. Losing their very first match, they came back to grab 3 important victories on the trot - including two against the two tournament favourites. Now they stand poised on the cusp of either topping the league or getting knocked out. In their last match, they limited BEAD to a tepid 146, and although the chase seemed to be heading south at several points of the inning, the experienced Samiullah Shinwari pulled through at the very end. All Kabul has to do in order to top the league is win or even tie with SGT, and they are certainly the favourites as they have beaten the Tigers in all of their last 3 matches.
Speen Ghar Tigers Preview & Form
Following their defeat against Band-e-Amir Dragons and Boost Defenders’ surprise win against Mis Ainak Knights, the Tigers’ chances of qualifying have gone from good to very slim. Now, a scenario exists where even if they win against Kabul Eagles, they might not make it through to the final due to their run rate. In such a position, a sizable victory is absolutely essential if they are to have any chances at all of qualifying. It’s hard to imagine that this team was on top of the league because of a higher run rate at the start of the tournament. Given that Boost Defenders will be playing the miserable Amo Sharks, that situation is further cast into doubt.
KABUL vs SGT Match Prediction
Given the bizarre situation, Kabul will give it all they’ve got. Expect Samiullah Shinwari and Rahmatullah Gurbaz to continue their form with the bat, while Nijat Mahmud and Nangeyalia Kharote show their skills with the ball.
Speen Ghar will definitely not just let Kabul walk all over their dreams. Expect Perwez Malikzai and Tamim Surkhorodi to make runs, while Karim Sadiq and Abdullah Adil get the dismissals.
