Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions Today APL - Balkh Legends v Nangarhar Leopards

Ground preparation at the Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium, Sharjah.

Nangarhar Leopards played their last match of the league stage against Balkh Legends and beat them by 6 wickets. Now it is the time for the big semi-final.

However, Balkh Legends topped the charts in the league stage while Nangarhar Leopards were the last team to qualify.

In a low scoring encounter the Legends could only manage 133 with the top order failing to contribute as Leopards' Naveen-ul-Haq, Zahir Khan and Fazal Niazai picked up two wickets each. These three along with Mujibur Rahman and Ben Cutting will constitute their bowling line up. Anton Devcich, Andre Fletcher, Hashmatullah Shahidi and Shafiqullah Shafiq are the batting leads.

Balkh Legends have been shuffling with their lineup for a while now but now is the time to field the strongest XI as the team locks horns with the Nangarhar Leopards in the first semi final.

An explosive batting lineup consisting of Chris Gayle, Colin Munro, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara and Mohammad Nabi would be well complemented by the bowling of Qais Ahmad and Samiullah.

Here are the probable playing XIs for both teams.

Balkh Legends - Chris Gayle, Colin Munro, Darwish Rasooli, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Ali Khil, Mirwais Ashraf, Aftab Alam, Qais Ahmad, Samiullah

Nangarhar Leopards - Anton Devcich, Andre Fletcher, Johnson Charles, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Shafiqullah Shafiq, Ben Cutting, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Zahir Khan, Fazal Niazai
