Balkh Legends vs Kandahar Knights Ballebaazi Fantasy Cricket Preview

Balkh Legends

They would be very happy with the way they played their first game. They were dominating for the most part, which led to the death of motivation in the other team. It was pretty evident that they will not be playing as an underdog team. The players that they have can pack a punch. They might be on the second rank in points table but the convincing win that they had could tell a different story. They showed an excellent batting performance putting the opposition in a lot of pressure. They might want to try the winning combination once again.

Kandahar Knights

They might have lost their first match forcing them to the bottom of the points table but one match cannot define the team in a league, the team has potential in players like Brendon McCullum, Paul Stirling, Asghar Afghan and others. They just need to tap in this powerhouse properly. The batting was good in the last match but they couldn’t defend it. So they will have to work a little on their bowling. They might also try to play the same team and see what the outcome is of the second match before making any team change.
