Weather Conditions

The weather looks dark and gloomy but we expect it won’t affect the proceedings of the match and may downpour on the later stages of the day.

Venue Details

The pitch is expected to a bit of a surprise as this match happens after a very long time. The overcast conditions at the venue might bring faster bowlers into play. The pitch might wear off a little as it is the third match of the day.

Toss: To Bat

T10 cricket is one of the very shortest formats of the game and teams will look to put pressure on the opposition with a big score on board.

Winning Prediction

Both teams have a lot of young players who are yet to play bigger leagues and are vying for an opportunity to showcase their talent. Strikers team has few players who have experience in List A cricket and CPL tournaments which put them slightly on an advantageous position than the Explorers. We expect them to win this contest owing to experienced players.

FORT CHARLOTTE STRIKERS will win the match!
