The semi-final 1 of the Zong 4G National T20 Cup will be played between Northern and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad.

Northern ended the league stage of the Zong 4G National T20 Cup at the top with four wins and one loss from five matches. They had six points and as a result qualified comfortably to semi final 1.

Their opponents Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ended at the fourth place after the league stage with two wins and three losses from five matches, with four points and net run rate of 0.053.

Northern won their last league match against Balochistan to qualify to semi final 1. It was Shadab Khan who rose to the occasion and snaffled 4 wickets while conceding just 26 runs from his four overs. He was duly supported by Sohail Tanvir and Mohammad Amir, both of whom picked up two wickets each to restrict Balochistan to 155.

Despite Umar Amin getting dismissed for nought, Ali Imran scored a whirlwind 37-ball 65 and ensured that the chase was under Northern's control all along. Rohail Nazir then remained unbeaten with a half-century to take the team home by 7 wickets.

Fakhar Zaman and skipper Mohammed Rizwan are the leading batsmen for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Mohammad Mohsin and Usman Shinwari are their trump cards with the ball.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Northern- Umar Amin, Ali Imran, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Sohail Akhtar, Imad Wasim (C), Rohail Nazir (WK), Haris Rauf, Musa Khan, Shadab Khan, Sohail Tanvir

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa- Fakhar Zaman, Israrullah, Sahibzada Farhan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan (C & WK), Mohammad Mohsin, Imran Khan JR, Khushdil Shah, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Ilyas, Usman Shinwari
