Balochistan (BAL) will take on Northern (NOR) in the opening match of the National T20 Cup 2021 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi on Thursday.
Balochistan endured a horrible National T20 Cup campaign last year as they finished bottom of the table with only four wins from 10 matches. They’d want to improve on that record this time around. Meanwhile, Northern lost to Southern Punjab in the semi-finals of the National T20 Cup last year. Despite topping the group stage with 16 points, they couldn’t make it to the final.
