Date- Wednesday, October 16 | Time- 3:00 PM (IST) | Venue- Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground
Weather & Pitch Report
No chances of rain playing spoilsport in the forthcoming fixture. Temperature is expected to be around 24C and will cool down as the day goes by.
The wicket tends to slow down at the Alokozay, however, scoring big runs won’t be much of a challenge once the batsmen apply themselves.
After an emphatic start in the league with three wins on the trot, Kabul finished off the league fixtures in an underwhelming manner with two consecutive losses.
Hazratullah Zazai and Karim Janat will be expected to come good while opening the innings. There might be a toss-up between Imran Mir or Abdul Malik at number three, while the skipper, Asghar Afghan walks in at number four. Younas Ahmadzai, Samiullah Shinawari and Waheedullah Shafaq could chip in the middle order.
In terms of the bowling unit, Mohammad Ibrahim, Waqar Salamkheil and Abdullah Mazari could chip in.

Speen Ghar Tigers
Speen Ghar Tigers have been fairly inconsistent this season with just two wins in five league games. However, the Tigers did manage to record a comprehensive win against Boost Defenders in their most recent game.
The fortunes could go in favour of them if they win two games and book a place in the finals.
Karim Sadiq and Najib Tarakai would be the possible opening candidates. Shabir Noori and Bahir Shah could come in at three and four. Jonathan Campbell and Abdul Wasi would be fighting for a spot, while Najeebullah Zadran plays a vital role with both bat and ball. Shafiqullah could chip in with the bat in the final few overs.
Zaheer Khan, Wafadar Momand and Sayed Shirzad are expected to lead the bowling attack against Kabul Eagles.
Squad- Karim Sadiq, Najeeb Tarakai, Shabir Noori, Bahir Shah, Jonathan Campbell, Abdul Wasi, Najibullah Zadran, Shahidullah Kamal, Shafiqullah (C&WK), Wafadar Momand, Sayed Shirzad, Zahir Khan, Abdul Wasi, Tamim Surkhrodi, Inamullah, Shamsurahman Karokhil, Nawaz Khan.
