The 5th match of the Afghan One-Day Cup will be played between Kabul Province and Helmand Province at the Mis Ainak Cricket ground.
This match is scheduled to start at 09:00 AM Local Time (10:00 AM IST) (04:30 AM UTC).
Helmand Province had a forgettable performance in the first game of their tournament against Khost Province. The side was bowled out for only 57 runs and lost the game by 9 wickets. Bouncing back from such a defeat will be tough for any team. But it is important to analyse the shortcomings from that game and make amends to their plans. Kabul Province, on the other hand, will enter this game as the favourites. They defeated Balkh Province by 5 wickets in their first game.
There is a chance of precipitation during this game and we might lose out on some action.
The pitch at this venue is a sporting one. If they apply themselves well, batsmen can get big scores. Bowlers need to be disciplined and consistent.
Average first innings score: 163 (First two matches at this venue)

Nisar Wahdat proved his potential right in the first game of the tournament with a brilliant half-century. He slammed five fours and sixes during the course of his knock. Shafiqullah Ghafari picked up three wickets in the last game and was an absolute miser with the ball.

In what was a dismal performance in the first game for the Helmand Province, Nizar Ahmed was one batsman who looked the most fluent in his short stay at the crease. You can take a risk and have him as the multiplier.
Kabul Province is expected to win this match.
