Band-e-Amir Dragons Preview & Form
Considered one of the two favourites for the final at the start of the tournament, Band-e-Amir Dragons have definitely shown some glimpses of what they are capable of, but have been able to properly execute their full performance when it mattered. At the very least, though, they can say that the two matches they lost were against the top two teams. On that note, they will also be confident knowing they’ve already beaten Boost this year - and very convincingly. Additionally, they were able to get 2 full days of rest, as their last match - a defeat to Kabul - was on the 12th.
Boost Defenders Preview & Form
While certainly not consistent, two of Boost’s wins came against the top two teams. This stands in sharp contrast to BEAD, but evens out because BDD did lose to them. Given the amazing form of Gulbadin Naib, though, no team is safe from them. After two defeats from their first 3 games, the Defenders fought tooth and nail to make it so far, and won’t be taking it easy by any means. In the last match they played, they decimated a down-and-out Amo Sharks by 10 wickets, which will give their batsmen further confidence for this match.
BEAD vs BDD Match Prediction
Band-e-Amir Dragons have a lot to prove given the strength of their lineup, and it’s time for some of those players to step up. Expect in-form batsmen Usman Ghani and Asghar Afghan to keep up the good work, while Sharafuddin Ashraf and Waqar Salamkheil do their bit with the ball.
Boost Defenders have shown tremendous resilience to come this far, and will need to display more in order to move ahead. Expect the amazing Gulbadin Naib to put up an all-round performance, while Karim Janat and Amir Hamza help him with the bat and ball respectively.
