Northern vs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Match Analysis and Review:
The Northern team overall is performing very well but the captain and the star player Asif Ali aren’t in the form that is expected from them. The Haider Ali, Ali Imran duo is the most destructive one at the opening. They can help them stable the team on the batting side. On the bowling side, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Amir can be a big problem for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has an excellent opening duo of Fakhar Zaman and Sahibzada Farhan. Fakhar Zaman, an excellent power hitter, isn’t able to score much in this event. Sahibzad Farhan is also an excellent batsman. The KPK also has the excellent talented young batsman Iftikhar Ahmed who has performed very well recently against England in the T20 series.
