Babar Azam XI and Sarfaraz Ahmed XI will play in an exhibition game on February 5 at the Bugti Stadium in Quetta, organized by the Balochistan Cricket Association.
In preparation for the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 8 which will run from February 13 to March 19, the game is being staged as a warm-up activity.
