Lahore Whites will lock horns with Abbottabad in the 23rd match of the Super Eight round of the National T20 Cup 2023 at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi on December 7. Both these teams have played five matches each so far in the Super Eight round of the tournament, where Lahore has won just one and is languishing at the bottom of the table, while Abbottabad has won three and is placed third in the rankings.
Lahore Whites squared off against Rawalpindi in their last encounter, where Lahore Whites won the toss and elected to bat. They started well with their openers looking in good touch and scored 49 runs for the first wicket. They even had a good second-wicket partnership but could not carry on with that base already. By the end of the innings, they could only score 146 runs. Similar to their opponents, Rawalpindi started well and had a good opening stand of 55 runs. Although they did lose a couple of wickets in the middle overs, they overcame well and won the match by five wickets.
Abbottabad played against Peshawar in their last match, where Peshawar won the toss and elected to bat. The decision proved to be a masterstroke as their batters had a wonderful day. Not just they were in good touch, but scored at a brisk pace as well. With a couple of half-centuries, they posted a huge total of 195 runs on the board. Abbottabad batters looked a bit rusty and were not able to find boundaries regularly. They had a good partnership for the fourth wicket, but no other significant partnerships were achieved. They eventually lost the game by 21 runs.
