It’s a battle of the Punjabs as Sindh takes on Southern Punjab in Match 13 of the 2019 Pakistan T20 Cup, also called the National T20 Cup. So far, Sindh has had a decent season with 2 wins in 4 games while Southern Punjab is in the lower half of the points table with 1 win in their 4 games. The last game in this tournament was played on 18th October and players return fresh after a 2-day break!
Once again, we resume at the same stadium in Faisalabad and we’re expecting the spinners to continue to do well here, along with the batsmen as we’ve seen a few 200+ totals already. Keep reading for our complete Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the SIN vs SOP game…

- Head to head, these two teams play each other for the first time.
- Khurram Manzoor – 134 runs in 4 games this tournament.
- Mohammad Hasnain – 9 wickets in 4 games this tournament.
- Sohaib Maqsood in 3 games this tournament – 25, 24, 35.
I’m a big fan of all-rounders especially in T20 cricket and while he isn’t a genuine all-rounder, Anwar Ali is being promoted up the order because he can give the ball a real swing. He has 45 runs so far and 6 wickets in 4 games, having gone wicketless in no game so far. The leader so far for this team and in this tournament is the 19-year old Mohammad Hasnain and you can’t really leave him out as he’s been in the wickets since the start of the tournament.
Another person worth a gamble is Sohail Khan who has plenty of Pakistan experience and can wield the willow if required too. He has only 2 wickets in 4 games, so there won’t be many takers for him in fantasy leagues. With the bat, there’s Khurram Manzoor at the top of the order who has scores of 50, 33, 35, 16, so I’m picking him for consistency. Ahsan Ali has 4 runs less than him this tournament and the 25-year old scored 119 in his last game before the T20 Cup began.
Not the most threatening Wahab Riaz we have seen till date as he has 4 wickets in 3 games, but he is surprisingly this team’s leading run scorer with 89 runs in 4 games, so he has all-rounder potential and that’s why you should pick him in your fantasy side. The team is clearly misfiring with the bat but there’s one person I’m expecting a big score from and that’s Sohaib Maqsood. He has a start in every game so far.
Similarly, with scores of 33, 15, 27 in this tournament, another person to add to your Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy team is Aamer Yamin who comes with national team experience too. He also often opens the bowling and has one wicket in 3 games. Remember, he scored 142 runs and picked 5 wickets in an FC game for Southern Punjab in his last game before this T20 Cup season started.
