Match Details:

The 9th match of the Shpageeza Cricket League (SCL) 2019 will be played between Mis Ainak Knights and Speen Ghar Tigers at the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground.

The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (03:00 PM IST) (09:30 AM GMT).

This game can be viewed on RTA World and RTA Pashto YouTube Channels.


The Shpageeza Cricket League 2019 is moving forward at a rapid pace. Mis Ainak Knights have had a great start to the tournament. They won both the games they’ve played and are placed very well on the points table. However, they got over the line just by a whisker on both these occasions. While the team managed to register a 3-run win in the first match, they won by 9 runs in the other games.

Thus, in the upcoming game against Speen Ghar Tigers, they’d like to register a more comprehensive victory. The Tigers do not have the momentum on their side. Even though the bowlers of this team have fared decently well, the batsmen have let them down. The team was bowled out cheaply in both the matches so far. If they are to register a win now at least, the batsmen will have to step up and play more responsible cricket.

Weather Report

The predicted temperatures during the duration of the game between 18 and 22 Degrees Celsius. Thus, it should be quite pleasant for a game of cricket. There isn’t any chance of precipitation and humidity is also on the lower side.

Pitch Condition/Report:

In the last two or three games, the track at Kabul seems to have slowed down slightly. There weren’t many high scores witnessed. However, as we have seen earlier in the tournament, once the batsmen settle in and feel confident, they can easily eye big scores. The teams batting first seem to have an advantage at the venue.

Average first innings score: 159 (Last 7 games in the Shpageeza Cricket League 2019)
