Cricket Match Predictions: National T20 Cup 2020 - Balochistan vs Sindh - Match 3
The 3rd match of the National T20 Cup 2020 will be played between Balochistan and Sindh at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Pakistan.
Last year's runners-up Balochistan, who got beaten by Northern in the final of the National T20 Cup 2019, will want to go one step further this year. They will face Sindh who could not perform well last year.
Both teams have one standout batsman. While Imam-ul-Haq is expected to be the top run scorer for Balochistan, Sarfaraz Ahmed will have the responsibility of putting the runs on the board for Sindh.
Imam-ul-Haq has 191 runs from 7 National T20 Cup matches at an average of 27.28 and a strike rate of over 135. Sarfaraz averages 26.20 and has struck at 132.32.
