KHP vs SOP Fantasy Prediction: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa vs Southern Punjab – 3 October 2020 (Multan)
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will take on Southern Punjab in the League game of National T20 Cup 2020 which will be played at the Multan International Stadium in Multan. The domestic T20 cup of Pakistan is here with almost all the major stars participating in the tournament and this promises to be a brilliant tournament.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa registered a brilliant victory in their last game after losing their first game. They have star Pakistani players in them and are looking like a really good side whereas Southern Punjab have lost both of their games and it is because of their really poor bowling. This can be a one-sided game if Southern Punjab’s bowling doesn’t improve in this game.
Pitch Report – The pitch is going to favour the batsmen with absolutely no help for the bowlers. Teams should target 200 runs on this wicket.
