CEP vs NOR Dream 11 team prediction: Fantasy cricket tips & playing XIs for Match 5 of Pakistan T20 Cup 2019
In Match 5 of Pakistan Cup T20 2019, Central Punjab are up against Northern. Northern will enter the match high on confidence after winning their opening match of the tournament against Southern Punjab by 5 wickets. On the other hand, Central Punjab suffered a three-wicket defeat at the hands of Sindh in their last match. The match will be played at Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad. While the contest will kick off from 2 pm IST, the toss will be held at 1: 30 pm IST.
Northern, who are led by Imad Wasim, produced an all-round show against Shah Masood-led Southern Punjab – where they restricted their opponents for 135 and then successfully chased down the total in 19 overs. While Sohail Tanvir and Mohammed Amir were heroes with the ball, Umar Amin (50) and Asif Ali (44*) shone with the bat. Babar Azam’s brilliant hundred for Central Punjab went in vain as Sindh batsmen delivered as a unit to produce a successful run-chase.
