Match Details:

The 22nd match of the Pakistan One Day Cup 2021 will be played between Balochistan and Central Punjab at State Bank of Pakistan Sports Complex, Karachi on Friday.

This match is scheduled to start at 09:30 AM Local Time (10.00 AM IST) and could be streamed live on PCB’s YT.


Both Balochistan and Central Punjab are ready to face each other for the second time at the State Bank of Pakistan Sports Complex in Karachi. Central Punjab beat Balochistan in their first meeting by chasing down the target of 214 runs with four wickets in hand. Currently, Central Punjab are placed at the 3rd position with 8 points in their bag.

Balochistan’s story is different from Central Punjab as they didn’t have a good time in the ongoing competition. They have lost 5 out of their eight matches and are rooted on the points table. So, it will be a very tough for Balochistan to win the battle against an in-form team in the upcoming game. However, Central Punjab would look to win this match to make their chances stronger for play-offs.
