Game number 29 of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy will see Central Punjab take on Southern Punjab at the State Bank of Pakistan Sports Complex, Karachi on Saturday, December 26 at 10:30 PM IST.
With the tournament reaching the business end, only three teams still have a realistic chance of joining Khyber into the finals. And this can be anticipated to be the most closely fought encounters as both the teams are still in with a chance to qualify.
Central Punjab need to beat South Punjab and also ensure they get at least two more bonus points than whatever South Punjab get to go past them. Even that may not be enough as Northern could beat Khyber to stay ahead.
On the other hand, a win should seal Southern Punjab's qualification, while a defeat could put their qualification hopes in serious jeopardy.

The strip at this ground is one on which batters have enjoyed scoring a lot of runs. While there hasn't been much for the pacers, the spinners have picked up the most number of wickets, and that trend might continue today as well.
