After a scintillating victory in a nervy game against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh will take on table-toppers Northern on Wednesday at Rawalpindi. Sindh chased 15 of the last three deliveries to register a victory against Khyber earlier in the tournament.
Northern played their last game on Monday when they successfully defended a target against Southern Punjab. After a day’s rest, Northern will lock horns with a resurgent Sindh in a bid to keep their position at the summit.
Danish Aziz played a huge role in Sindh’s nail-biting finish on Tuesday. Can he repeat the performance against Northern Punjab?

Though the track at Pindi Club Ground has been something of a 'batsman’s paradise', the behaviour of the strip has changed in the past few games. With bowlers finding perfect line and length along with the surface slowing down, the average first innings score has reduced to 132 from 171. The teams chasing have enjoyed success thrice in the past five games and the team winning the toss should bowl first at the Pindi Club Ground.
