National T20 2018/19 from December 10
The National T20 Cup 2018-19 will be held from December 10, 2018. All matches will be played in Multan. The teams participating in this year’s National T20 Cup are: Karachi Whites, Lahore Whites, Lahore Blues, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, FATA and Multan.
The introduction of the Pakistan Super League implies the months of February and March are now totally booked and with the main Pakistani players wanting to participate in T20 leagues around the world, it is becoming even tougher for the board.
However, the PCB has made it mandatory for their contracted players to feature in the National T20 in order to receive NOCs to play T20 tournaments around the world.
This will be the 15th season of the National T20 Cup, and will be played between December 10 and 25, with eight teams participating in the tournament. Lahore Blues will start things off as the defending champions. Lahore Blues had beaten the Lahore Whites in the final last year by seven wickets to clinch the win.
The format of the National T20 Cup will see all the eight teams face each other in a round-robin format which will be followed by the semi-finals and the final.
