The 11th match of the Afghan One-Day Cup, 2020 will be played between Faryab Province and Maidan Wardak Province at the Khost Cricket Stadium.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (10:00 AM IST) (4:30 AM GMT).
Faryab Province and Maidan Wardak Province will lock horns in the match scheduled to be played on Tuesday as part of the Group B in the Afghanistan Provincial One-Day Cup. The Faryab Province won both their matches played thus far that too by close margins. They got better of the Kandahar team by 20 runs in their first match and by mere six runs against Nangarhar. On the other hand, the Maidan Wardak Province suffered an 84-run defeat in the hands of Nangarhar before cruising to a 6-wicket win over Kandahar.
The match between Faryab Province and Maidan Wardak Province is unlikely to be affected by the rain.
The teams winning the toss prefer to bowl first here at the Khost Cricket Stadium. Bowlers get help in the morning and chasing lower targets would become an easy task in the afternoon.
