Hapur is expected to have dark and gloomy weather with almost 60% chance of rain. We may see some weather interruption on the match day and the match may postpone to the next dates if rain plays a spoilsport.
Hapur Police Yodhas batted first and posted scores over 150 runs in the last two matches. The pitch will have good balance between the bat and ball with average scores of 150-160 runs.
Batting first is the safe option in must-win games as the pressure of chasing may lead you to choke in crunch situations.
Hapur Police Yodhas have a dream comeback in the tournament with winning four matches on a trot and will look to win one more match to enter the playoffs. Hapur Hurricanes seem to miss the services of tournament`s highest run-getter Shivam Chowdary (287 runs) which will be a huge loss for them. We expect Hapur Police Yodhas to continue their winning momentum and streak in this match.
