Updated - Oct 16, 2020 1:22 pm
The 30th match of the National T20 Cup 2020 will be played between Balochistan and Southern Punjab at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi.
The match is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM Local Time (08:00 PM IST) and will be streamed on Pakistan Cricket YouTube Channel.
The race for the last semi-final spot will go right down the wire as the last league stage game of National T20 Cup 2020 is all set to decide the fourth entrants to the next stage. Balochistan looked the favourites for the place for a while, but after a defeat against North in their last game, things might not be very smooth for them.
On the other hand, almost everybody wrote Southern Punjab off a long time ago, but they have managed to pull off a miraculous comeback. With two consecutive wins, they have managed to provide them with an outside chance of qualification. However, they will not only need to win but do so with a big margin, in order to keep their hopes alive.
