Match 15 of the National T20 Cup will see the table-toppers Northern Punjab go up against fifth-placed Central Punjab at the Pindi Club Ground. Northern Punjab have looked dominating thus far and will be hoping to seal a spot in the knockout stages.
Northern Punjab have five victories in five games, and a major reason for their success has been their all-round show. Central Punjab, on the other hand, have lost their focus in the last few games.
