The 6th match of the Shpageeza Cricket League (SCL) 2019 will be played between Amo Sharks and Band-e-Amir Dragons at the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (10:00 AM IST) (4:30 AM GMT)
This game can be viewed on RTA World and RTA Pashto YouTube Channels.
The defending champions Band-e-Amir Dragons have failed to impress thus far in this season. One of the main reasons for that has been their captain Rashid Khan’s form with the ball. The young leg-spinner went wicketless in both matches as his team BEA Dragons conceded big totals.
They will now face Amo Sharks in their 3rd match of the tournament. The Amo Sharks, led by Mirwais Ashraf, has played only one match thus far. They took on Speen Ghar Tigers on Tuesday afternoon and finished with 162/7 in their 20 overs. The Tigers in reply were bundled out for only 144.
The game between Amo Sharks and BEAD is expected to be played under clear skies. The weather forecast during this game suggests sunny weather.
The morning game was once against a high-scoring one as Mis Ainak Tigers piled on a big total of 192/4. Band-e-Amir Dragons did show that this venue is good for the chasing sides despite losing his own wickets. Once again we might witness totals of 170+ in the morning matches.
Average first innings score: 170 (Last 7 T20 matches played in the morning)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 6

Probable Playing XIs:
Usman Ghani, Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Ghamai Zadran, Fazal Zazai, Farmanullah, Ikram Ali Khil (WK), Mirwais Ashraf (C), Ibrahim, Rokhan Barakzai, Shapoor Zadran.
Bench: Zia ur Rahman Sharifi, Arif Khan Dawlatzai, Zia ul Haq Farmani, Munir Ahmad, Parviz Malikzai, Abdul Rahim Mangal, Juma Gul Miakhil, Nangyalai, Parviz Amin.
Javed Ahmadi, Imran Janat, Shawkat Zaman, Nasir Jamal, Afsar Zazai (WK), Hayatullah, Batin Shah Abdurahimzai, Rashid Khan (C), Mujeeb Zadran, Fitratullah Khawri, Farid Malik.
Bench: Naveed Obaid, Rifatullah, Zamir Khan, Usman Adil, Azmatullah Omarzai, Zahir Zergai, Nijat Masood, Qasim Oryakhil.
The top three of Usman Ghani, Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmat Shah are quite consistent at producing 25+ scores every game. Rokhan Barakzai has good numbers when it comes to the shorter format. Shawkat Zaman scored a fifty on Wednesday while Nasir Jamal will have a key role to play for BEAD team in the middle-order.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Usman Ghani, Mirwais Ashraf, Javed Ahmadi, Nasir Jamal
Vice-Captain – Rahmat Shah, Shawkat Zaman, Ibrahim Zadran, Rashid Khan
Javed Ahmadi has scored 23 and 41 respectively in the two matches. He is in all likelihood to bowl a good number of overs as well. This makes him a perfect choice for multipliers.
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – Afsar Zazai
Batsmen – Usman Ghani (VC), Rahmat Shah, Nasir Jamal, Shawkat Zaman
All-Rounders – Batin Shah Abdurahimzai, Javed Ahmadi (C), Mirwais Ashraf
Bowlers – Mujeeb Zadran, Rokhan Barakzai, Shapoor Zadran
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Ikram AliKhil
Batsmen – Nasir Jamal, Usman Ghani, Shawkat Zaman (VC)
All-Rounders – Javed Ahmadi, Batin Shah Abdurahimzai, Mirwais Ashraf (C)
Bowlers – Rashid Khan, Ibrahim, Rokhan Barakzai, Farid Malik
Rashid Khan seems to be lacking confidence with the ball in the shorter formats. He was taken for the runs and failed to pick a wicket in the first game. In the 2nd match, Rashid himself bowled only one and let others complete his remaining three overs. Hence he might a very risky pick at the moment.
Band-e-Amir Dragons are expected to win their first match of the tournament.
