Northern Pakistan have been the most dominant side in the National T20 Cup since the last season and when these two sides met in last year's competition, Northern Pakistan ruthlessly crushed Sindh by a huge margin of 66 runs.
Batting first, Northern Pakistan posted a humongous total of 191 in their quota of 20 overs. Sindh were bowled out for a mere 125, with 14 balls to spare. As for the current season, Northern Pakistan look like a dominant side with players such as Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim in their roster.
Will Sindh reverse their fortunes against Northern Pakistan, or will the latter continue their good run? We're in for a cracking contest!

In the first couple of games, we saw batting sides put up totals in excess of 200, but over time, the pitch has also started assisting the bowlers a fair bit. With quality bowlers on both sides, the batsmen might find it hard to score runs easily today.
