Pakistan batsman Shan Masood is extremely confident that Southern Punjab will win the National T20 Cup if they stick to their plans.
Masood will captain Southern Punjab in the tournament and admitted that it will be crucial his side get off to a strong start.
He added that even though his side don’t have many high-profile players, they can still be very competitive and give all the other teams a run for their money.
“We are well-aware that this tournament is going to be highly competitive as all the top T20 players in the country are participating in it. With this tournament being played on double-league basis, what matters the most is how the teams finish and carry the momentum from here to the Rawalpindi-leg,” he was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) website.
“I am very happy with the core of our team, which might not include big names but comprise youngsters who will be empowered and will be designated responsibilities in all departments. Our coach Abdur Rehman has put in a lot of thought in selecting this team, which provides us ample options depending on what side we play in which stadium. I am very confident that if we stick to our plans, we will play the final in Rawalpindi.”
The National T20 Cup will be held from September 30 to October 18.
Southern Punjab’s first game will be against Central Punjab in Multan on September 30.
