MOORBURGER TSV Key Players:
Aditya Gopinath, a solid top order batsman with good technique, and is an equally talented leg-spinner, scalped two wickets at an economy rate of just 6.50.
Faizan Farooq will normally open the batting for MTSV and will be keen to provide quick starts. He is also a part-time off-break bowler.
Azizgul Khalil, young talented bowling all-rounder, bowls with good pace and can swing the ball both ways, also capable of scoring quick runs in the middle order.
Samjit Chandran, right arm medium pace bowler, generally a middle over enforcer but is adaptable enough to bowl with the new ball and at the death as well.

Wicketkeeper: Mohammad Akbar Jabarkhel
Projected Top Four: Zahir Zakhil, Zakirullah Zakhil, Mohammad Akbar Jabarkhel, Salman Haider
Projected Opening Bowlers: Mohamad Sharif Safi, Abdulrahman Amarkhail

FIRST CONTACT Key Players:
Mohammad Akbar Jabarkhel, wicket-keeper batsman, all-time leading run scorer for the club, will open the innings for FCT, loves playing the cover drive.
Zahir Shah Zakhil, after falling for a golden duck in the first game, the left handed batsman showed a wide array of shots in the next game smashing 34 off 19 balls. He did return with impressive figures of 2-7 in the first game.
Sadam Sherzad, top wicket taker for FCT on Monday scalping 3-19 against MTV in the second match.
Salman Haider, leading all-rounder, will contribute with bat and his canny leg breaks are to be respected.
A meeting of two debutants both of whom are still seeking their first win.
Moorburger TSV had a tough debut day, losing twice to the hosts early on Monday with their batting coming under serious pressure, only mustering scores of 48 and 58.
Likewise, First Contact twice came unstuck against Group A favourites MTV Stallions which is certainly no disgrace.
Match Prediction: Considering the average scores and on field performance of both teams, First Contact (FCT) would appear to have a slight edge over MTSV and are likely to win this game.
