CEP vs KHP Dream11 : Culminating day of the league stage matches begins with two bottom of the table sides taking on each other
With Southern Punjab winning on Monday, Central Punjab have been handed over one final lifeline to make it into the semi-finals of the tournamnet. It’s not an easy chance for them by any margin though with the side need to script a humongous win over Khyber Pakhtunkhwa if they are to make it into fourth place.
What will give them solace though is the fact that they are squaring off against a side which finds itself languishing in the bottom of the points tally. With just the one win till now in the tournamnet, one which came in their first match of the tournamnet as they defeated Balochistan by 7 wickets, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa befittingly find themselves in the bottom spot.
Currently on a three match losing spree, they’ll know today that although they can’t make it any further in the tournamnet, this final match of the tournament for them will be one where they have save themselves from horrid embarrassment. Central Punjab continue to remain in with a chance of making it to the semi-finals but the side haven’t fared off any better, winning just the one match till now, a 5 wicket triumph over Southern Punjab.
And its Southern Punjab they’ll be looking to displace from fourth spot come today’s impending clash and move into the top 4 in a match which sees the bottom two placed sides battle it out against each other. This might be a match between two of the worst sides this tournamnet but expect the level of competition to be high given both will be looking to overturn and turnaround a set of dejecting results for them.
