The Maidan Wardak Province bit the dust against Nangarhar Province. While chasing a massive 270-run score, they were bundled for just 186 runs, losing the match by 84 runs. Both the teams would be craving for a win right now and the match is all set to be an intense game of cricket, as both the teams will be bringing their A-game on the field.
Weather on Sunday does not look good as thunderstorms along with a 40 per cent chance of rainfall are expected. The temperature is expected to be around the 28 degree Celsius mark.

Munir Kakar scored a sublime half-century with a strike rate of 90.6, in his team’s last match and showed what exactly he is capable of doing. He will be looking to continue his scoring in this match too.
Mohammadullah II took 4 wickets in his last match and started his tournament on a positive note. Even though his team was not able to win the match, his performance was one of the many positives they would look to carry forward from that match.
Najibullah performed decently in his team’s first match of the tournament. He scored 59 runs at a strike rate of 59.0 and also took one wicket. But, to his disappointment, his team was not able to win the match.
Ahamad Zahir, in spite of not being able to put runs on the board in his team’s first match, which they lost, showed everyone a glimpse of what he is capable of. He managed to score 38 runs and did well on the field too, taking 4 catches.
