Match 23 of the National T20 Cup will see the in-form Khyber Pakhtunkhwa take on the struggling Sindh unit at the Pindi Club Ground. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa registered a 73-run comprehensive victory over Southern Punjab in their previous game.
In the previous match-up between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh which was held at Multan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa emerged victorious after they chased down a stiff target with eight wickets in hand.
