    Really nice to Mark Haysman Commentating, I'm guessing he was meant to commentate in Pak vs NZ series.
    It's a shame for PCB live stream to not have speed guns.

    Akbar Rahman is not a T20 player and its just pathetic seeing him being picked. I dont understand the regional selections its full of bias and the results are there to see.

    Well there is a sprinkle and maybe later on for second game more. But PCB have charged Gate prices as well as following COVID protocols so it would be difficult to get crowds before it used to be free i believe

    I feel like this six team system is really not working right now. It was supposed to give us more competitive games and better talent on display but all its doing is blocking new players from getting any kind of opportunities to showcase their talent at this level. Where are players like Hurreira, or Arish Ali Khan or other members of our last under 19 batch? And if an under 19 national team player can’t get a spot in a domestic side then where is the hope for the rest?

    Don’t they have a tournament starting on the 28th September for the 2nd XI? I’m sure performances from those games would allow players to come into the first xi.

    Rauf bowled well however he bowled at lower order batters. Amad didn't had much strike in last few overs that tells the story how bad the lower order batters were in even rotating strikes.

    At half way mark Northern should be able to chase this quite comfortably.

    Its afternoon of a working day and just the start of the tournament. Not many domestic T20 tournaments start with full capacity if any to start with. We will see that 25% capacity better covered as the tournament progresses and especially in the evening matches during weekends.

    Really? 18 off 12 is enough for you to start praising a player? He literally skied it when on 2.

    Anything over 140 and our domestic batsmen look like club batsmen. They love bowlers like Umaid Asif and Amad Butt

    He has scored all his runs like this, sky a few shots early on , in domestic cricket nobody is gonna catch or even try to but when he plays the same shots in intl cricket players gonna catch and he is gone for single digit


    It is not that hard to predict, even after so many games that he played in intl cricket yet they select , the IQ of the selectors and coaching staffs in Pakistan are very poor to say the least.

    A pretty comfortable 6-wicket win for Northern [140/4] in their game against Balochistan [139/7]; Haider Ali remains not out on 58*(41) for Northern whilst Akif Javed impressed with 1/27 in 4 overs

    Easy game for northants. Balochistan seemed like they were getting back into it but then with the dropped chance of Asif game was gone.

    Sorry, but I can’t. He played some good shots but he had luck on his side today. Should’ve been out on 2 after skying, how many times have we seen him do this?
