Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Central Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will face-off on the last day of the league matches in the ongoing National T20 Cup. Both the teams haven’t performed to the expectations so far in this tournament. While Central Punjab are at the fifth place with a win and two losses after four matches, Khyber team is languishing at the bottom of the points table.

For Central Punjab to qualify, they will have to beat their opponents by a big margin. However, even before the match to start, their fate will be decided if Southern Punjab lose on Monday. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, on the other hand, have already been ruled out and they might give chance to some of their benched players.
