Preview:

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh made similar starts in this tournament by winning the first game and losing the second match. Khyber started off with a 7-wicket win against Balochistan and followed it with a close 4-wicket loss to Southern Punjab on Tuesday. The Punjab team were half down for 51 runs during their 155-run chase which was fulfilled by their lower-order with two 50-run stands.

On the other hand, the bowling attack of Sindh is the most talked aspect of the competition thus far. They conceded 188/3 in the first game against Central Punjab. Their batsmen minimized the damage as they stepped up to complete a big chase comfortably. In the second match, Balochistan posted an even bigger total of 233/6. The Sindh team was eventually bowled out for 181 and fell 53 runs short of the target.
