Both the team have confronted each other two times each other, the first time in the initial match of APL 2018 and the second time at the last match of the league were in the 1st clash Kabul came out as the winner by 3 wickets and 2nd time Panthers took the revenge and beaten them by 6 wickets.
The team is at the second position by winning 5 matches out of 8 matches, the team is playing under the captaincy of Mohammad Shehzad and giving consistent performance and apart the team have good mix of overseas and national players in both batting(Cameron Delport, Sikandar Raza, and Callum MacLeod,) and bowling departments, Isuru Udana star bowler of their team has taken 15 wickets as far.
Probable Playing XI for Paktia Panthers: Mohammad Shahzad (C & WK), Ihsanullah Janat, Cameron Delport, Calum MacLeod, Samiullah Shenwari, Fazal Rahman Zazai, Shahid Afridi, Tahir Khan, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Isuru Udana, and Ziaw Rahman.
Captain Rashid Khan is doing well as a captain, team has performed under his guidance and captured the 3rd position in the tournament and playing semifinal.
Much like Paktia, Kabul has a better than average yield of batsmen. Hazratullah Zazai, Luke Ronchi, Colin Ingram, and Laurie Evans have done miracles for Kabul in the batting office. Additionally, quick ones from Wayne Parnell and Rashid Khan have helped them as well.
Be that as it may, sporadic knocking down some pins has been a puzzler for them as far back as the beginning of this group. In spite of any semblance of Parnell and Rashid Khan, Kabul Zwanan has been very unpredictable on their playing front. Accordingly, with excellent batting on their side, Kabul Zwanan will hope to perform appropriately with the ball while peering toward a spot for the finals.
Probable Playing XI for Kabul Zwanan: Luke Ronchi (WK), Hazratullah Zazai, Colin Ingram, Afsar Zazai, Laurie Evans, Shawkat Zaman, Shahidullah Kamal, Rashid Khan (C), Wayne Parnell, Fareed Ahmad, and Zahir Shehzad.
