BAL vs NOR Dream11 : Final match of the league stage encounters to decide which side ends up in the echelons of the league.
A befitting way to wrap up the league stage encounters, today’s match between Balochistan and Northern Pakistan sees the top two sides in the league go at loggerheads against each other. With three wins out of four matches for both of these two sides, a win for either will take it to the pinnacle of the league standings, giving them much needed impetuous before embarking on their soirees in the ensuing semi-finals.
For both of these two sdes, this edition of the tournament has been an extremely fruitful one. There’s little doubting the calibre of both these sides, two units have barely put a wrong step forward in their quest of stamping their authority on the league and asserting their credentials for the trophy.
Now as both these sdes look to play for the last time in the league stage encounters, today’s match is far from an inconsequential one despite both of these units having already qualified for the semi-finals previously. With the first placed berth awaiting the winner, both will be looking to come hot out of the blocks today and leave no stone unturned as they look to punch above their weight once again.
Balochistan come into today’s encounter having gotten the better of Southern Punjab previously in what was a clinical performance by the side. This is match which looks set to be a closely fought affair, a fixture where the margins of a win will be extremely few as either side battle it out levelly against each other to wrap up proceedings in the league stage matches.
