The 12th match of the Zong 4G National T20 Cup will be played between Northern and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad.

After a 7-wicket win against Balochistan in the opening encounter of the National T20 Cup 2019, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa suffered a 4-wicket defeat against Southern Punjab after their batsmen managed only 154.

The team then suffered another loss by 8 runs against Sindh and is currently placed at the 4th spot in the points table with one win and two losses. The team has only 2 points and a net run rate of 0.048.

Their opponents Northern have performed relatively well and are placed at the second spot in the leaderboard with two wins and one loss from three games. The team has four points and a net run rate of +1.199.

Northern started their campaign with 5-wicket win over Southern Punjab but lost by 4 wickets against Central Punjab in their next game, despite scoring 222 runs.

In their last game against Sindh, the team posted 191 and their bowlers then skittled out Sindh for just 125 runs to register a comprehensive 66-run win.
