ISLAMABAD: Saad Nasim and Shadab Khan will lead Central and Northern respectively during the first phase of the National T20 Cup starting from September 30 in Multan.

Skippers Babar Azam and Imad Wasim will not be available to lead their respective team during the first phase because of their commitments with Vitality Blast in England.

“Saad and Shadab will be leading the teams during the first phase of the Cup as the duo has already been announced as deputy to the announced skippers,” a PCB official said.

The official added that both skippers along with Shaheen Shah Afridi would not be available for the entire first phase.
