The finalists of last year’s National T20 Cup Balochistan are playing some entertaining cricket this year as well and they’re placed at no.4 in the points table currently. Just before the semis, Balochistan has lost a couple of their main pacers.

Fast bowler Umaid Asif has been dropped from the side because of his poor performance in the last few games whereas young left-arm paceman Akif Javed has been ruled out of the tournament because of a knee injury.

The U19 pacer Akhtar Shah has replaced Umaid in the squad of Balochistan after he enjoyed a brilliant outing in the 2nd XI tournament taking seven wickets in just three matches at an impeccable average of 12.

On the other hand, Akif has been replaced by Taj Wali in the Balochistan squad and both of them are going to be available for their next encounter. It is important to note that Balochistan only require one more victory in order to confirm their place in the semi-finals.

Balochistan have made two changes to their squad for the ongoing National T20 Cup as the round-robin phase of the tournament gradually comes towards its conclusion.
