Match No.18 as part of the ongoing National T20 Cup will see Central Punjab go up against Sindh at the Pindi Club Ground on Saturday. Central Punjab will be coming into this clash on the back of a win against Northern Punjab, and they will be keen to move up the points table with a big win in this clash.
As for Sindh, they've picked up just the one win from four matches and are struggling to land on a winning combination. While the batting unit has managed to put on a show, the bowlers have failed to come to the party, resulting in a string of losses.
