Balkh Legends attempt to experiment with their playing 11 failed in the last game against Nangarhar Leopards. A lacklustre batting effort where 32 was the highest individual contribution [by Ravi Bopara] saw them post an underwhelming 7-133 in 20 overs. The target was chased down with ease thanks to Andre Fletcher’s 22-ball-48.
They’ll now face Kandahar Knights, who, too are coming off a 4-wicket loss at the hands of Kabul Zwanan and if need to win this encounter if they are to harbour chances of making it to semis.
