The 2nd match of the Zong 4G National T20 Cup will be played between Central Punjab and Sindh at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad.


Babar Azam, possibly the biggest name in Pakistan cricket right now, will lead Central Punjab. His captaincy skills would be put to test as he has also been named the deputy to Sarfaraz Ahmed in the national side.

But, many believe that he still lacks the ownership and the proactiveness to affect a change. Hence, this can be a stepping stone for the batsman to not only reiterate his explosive skills in T20 cricket but also to prove his mettle as a captain.

Central Punjab vice captain Ahmed Shehzad made a comeback to the Pakistan T20 side, along with Umar Akmal, against Sri Lanka and failed in both the first two matches after being dropped for the third one. Kamran Akmal is another big name in the side who batted well in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and would look to attract the attention of the selectors for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.

Hasan Ali is unlikely to start for the side due to to injury. Fahim Ashraf will provide balance to Central Punjab.

Sindh captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is under the scanner for his tactics and his batting as the Pakistan skipper of late. This will be a good opportunity for him to show the nation that he is still the best that they have got. Asad Shafiq will be Sindh's vice captain.

Fawad Alam has also been good of late and would be one of the key factors for Sindh. Sindh have the liberty of having Mohammad Hasnain in the side who provides the team with extra pace and will be their x-factor.

Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:

Central Punjab- Babar Azam (c), Ahmed Shehzad (vc), Ahmad Bashir, Ali Shan, Bilal Asif, Fahim Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Kamran Akmal, Nasim Shah, Rizwan Hussain, Saad Naseem, Salman Butt, Umar Akmal, Usman Qadir, Waqas Maqsood and Zafar Gohar

Sindh- Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Asad Shafiq (vc), Abid Ali, Ahsan Ali, Anwar Ali, Fawad Alam, Kashif Bhatti, Khurram Manzoor, Mir Hamza, Mirza Ahsan Jameel, Mohammad Hasnain, Omair Bin Yousuf, Saad Ali, Saud Shakeel, Sohail Khan and Waleed Ahmed
