Pakistan T20 Cup 2019 full schedule: Fixtures & results, squads, dates, venue, live streaming
Under the captaincy of Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan cricket team was recently stunned 0-3 in T20I series at the hands of a second-string Sri Lankan team, which overshadowed the Men in Green in all departments of the game. The young Sri Lankan side punched above its weight to thrash Pakistan in their own backyard. The result came as a huge shock for Pakistan – who had won the ODI series against Sri Lanka 2-0 after the first match was washed out due to rain. With selectors keeping an eye for new talents in the shortest format, the Pakistan T20 Cup is a huge opportunity for several players to impress the selectors and stake their claim for a spot in Pakistan squad for next year’s ICC World Twenty20.
Going by what Pakistan head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq said at the presser post the humiliation against Sri Lanka, what is evident is the fact that the tournament is an excellent opportunity for all cricketers to impress the Pakistan team management. The tournament will see six franchises in Balochistan, Central Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Northern, Sindh and Southern Punjab up against each other. The tournament will also see some of the biggest names in Pakistan cricket, including Shoaib Malik – who is a strong contender to be recalled into Pakistan’s T20I side, play against each other.
