Match 25 of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2020 sees Northern take on Balochistan at the United Bank Limited Sports Complex in Karachi.
Northern find themselves placed atop the table with 98 points in six games. The team have had an impressive season winning thrice and losing just one game thus far. The Nauman Ali led side will be looking to extend their impressive run in the league with a victory against their opponent.
Balochistan, on the other hand, started their campaign with a bang but failed to continue their fine run. The last few games have not gone in their favor, as they've succumbed to three consecutive defeats. They are placed fourth in the table, and will look to end their losing streak and move a spot ahead by putting on a show against Northern on Sunday morning.

Match: Northern vs Balochistan, Match 25
Date: 20th December 2020, 10:30 AM IST
Venue: United Bank Limited Sports Complex, Karachi
The track in Karachi seems to be a batsmen friendly throughout the course of the match. The boundaries at this venue are smaller, when compared to the other ones, which makes it a high scoring match. Although the pacers have had a significant say during the initial day or two, but the pitch doesn't assist them much after that. Thus, both captains will look to bowl first if they win the toss.
