Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Afghan One-Day Cup 2020 - Balkh Province vs Khost Province - Match 5
The 5th match of the Afghan One-Day Cup 2020 will be played between Balkh Province and Khost Province at the Khost Provincial Cricket Stadium in Khost.
Balkh Province decided to bat first in their opening fixture of the Afghanistan One Day Cup 2020 but the decision backfired as they were bowled out for just 105 within 25 overs.
Abdul Malik and Zafar Balkh were looking decent at the crease and added 47 runs for the opening partnership. However, once the two fell, there was no stopping the slide.
After the openers, only Abdullah Mazari and Jamshid Khan could reach double figures as the team did not put enough runs on the board for their bowlers to defend.
The Balkh bowlers tried their best and also got some rewards with 5 wickets to show for. Abdullah Mazari was their best bowler with figures of 6-0-15-2. Hassan and Asadullah Matani also picked up one wicket each.
Khost Province registered a comprehensive 9-wicket victory in their first match of the Afghanistan One Day Cup, all thanks to Bakhtarullah Atal who picked up 4 wickets while conceding just 23 runs from his 5.3 hours. Ziaur Rehman, Haseebullah and Noor Ahmad also picked up two wickets each.
20s from Naveed Obaid and Rahim Mangal then took the team to a win within 8 overs.
