IPL players earning millions, WC blind cricketers in extreme poverty: Sukhram Manjhi
Northern (Pakistan) are set to face Southern Punjab in the 1st semi-final of the National T20 Cup 2020 that will be played on Saturday at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium at 3:30 pm IST. Here is a look at our NOR vs SOP match prediction and NOR vs SOP Dream11 team.
Northern had an incredible league phase where they finished as table-toppers and were the first team to qualify for the semis. NOR have been consistent throughout the tournament with both bat and ball and won their last league match against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by 11 runs. They will be looking to continue this run of form with one eye on the final.

On the other hand, SOP looked down and out of the tournament and were nowhere in contention for a place in the semi-final. However, the dynamics changed in the last match with SOP chasing down the target set by Balochistan in 10.4 overs. Despite sharing the same number of points with Balochistan and Central Punjab, SOP qualified to the semis on the basis of net run rate.
