And, yeah, here comes the final of the Shpageeza Cricket League 2020. After days of battle, it is Kabul Eagles and Mis Ainak Knights, who survived to play the final of the tournament. Both teams had a roller-coaster ride in the season so far and will look to head back home with a trophy in their kitty.
Kabul pipped MAK in the qualifier to reach the final. The middle-order comprising of all-rounders like Nangeyalia Kharote and Azmatullah Omarzai proved to be game-changers in that game, taking the game away from Mis Ainak Knights. They have been excellent and will look to end the competition on a winning note.
On the other hand, Knights, rightfully find a place in the final, having finished just behind Kabul in the points table. Although they marginally lost the first qualifier, they eased past BD in the second, and they now have a shot at winning the title.
