In a thrilling turn of events, the Premium Afghans (PMF) are riding high with consecutive victories, positioning themselves strongly for a spot in the semi-finals. Their upcoming clash against the struggling Premium Aussies (PMU) at Pearland's Moosa Stadium on December 29 promises an intriguing showdown. The Aussies have faced a tough season, enduring dismal losses in their initial three games. Unfavourable weather further hampered their campaign, washing out their subsequent three fixtures without a single delivery bowled.

With an extended absence from the field, the Aussies face a daunting return against the Afghans, who are currently in splendid form. The Afghans showcased their mettle by successfully chasing down 128 runs against the Americans and defending 123 against the Windies in their recent outings. In stark contrast, the Aussies stumbled, being dismissed for a mere 62 runs in their last American Premier League 2023 appearance.
