Match Details:

The 26th match of the National T20 Cup 2020 will be played between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Central Punjab at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi.

The match is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM Local Time (08:00 PM IST) and will be streamed on Pakistan Cricket YouTube Channel.


Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be gutted after their loss against Sindh last night. They had the match under their control until the last 3 balls of the game. Although it’s tough to get over such a loss, they would want to forget what happened and focus on their clash against Central Punjab.

Central Punjab too almost chased down a mammoth total of 205, falling short by just 3 runs. They would take a lot of positives from the game considering their start batsman, Babar Azam, didn’t contribute to the total. It should be a fierce contest between the two sides.
