Teams Preview

PCCT United Preview

The franchise will be confident of putting on a strong show in this semifinal game. The side has managed to win three matches on the bounce and will be keen to maintain their winning momentum in this knockout clash.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the likes of Usman Javed and Shahzad Khan Muhammadzai to make notable contributions in this contest.

Coming at no.3 in the batting, Usman Javed has shown excellent form with the bat this season. In 5 matches, Francis has accumulated 142 runs at a strike rate of 186.84 with one half-century to his name. He is currently the leading run-scorer in this year’s competition.

Besides Usman Javed, opener Shahzad Khan Muhammadzai has consistently delivered decent scores for PCCT United this season. Shahzad Khan has accumulated 121 runs in 5 innings at an average of 30.25. Skipper Mujahid Muhammad and Amjad Zafar have also chipped in with crucial scores for the side so far this season.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Meer Shuib Farooque and Mushtaq Muhammad to pick up wickets in the initial overs of the innings. Medium-pacer Meer Shuib Farooque has been a standout bowler for the side this season. He has picked up five wickets this season but his economy rate will be a cause of concern for the side going into this game.

PCCT United Predicted Playing XI:

Mujahid Muhammad (Captain), Asif Tanoli, Muhammad Amjad Zafar, Shiv Rawat, Shahzad Khan Muhammadzai, Usman Javed, Ninad Malwade, Qazi Mazhar Ul Haq, Muhammad Mushtaq, Meer Shuib Farooque, Danish Mehmood

TCA Indians Preview

Manoj Kriplani-led unit will need to maintain their discipline with bat and ball in this contest. The side has won three matches out of four played so far this season. Batting has so far struggled to get going this season.

In the previous game, opener Murugan Subramani and Neeraj Singh Patel registered notable scores to see TCA Indians post 90 for 6 in their allotted 10 overs.

The team management will be pinning their hopes on the opening duo of Murugan Subramani and Amit Kumar Bedaka to get the side off to a good start.

In their last group game, Murugan Subramani came good with the bat and finished the innings with the top-score of 32 runs off 20 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes. All-rounder Neeraj Patel also produced a quick-fire cameo of 21 runs off 12 balls to help TCA Indians post a competitive score on the board.

In the previous game, Murugan Subramani and Neeraj Singh Patel put in splendid performances with the new-ball and claimed one wicket each. Vivek Hedge also picked one wicket and conceded 16 runs from his only over bowled in the previous game.

TCA Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Manoj Kriplani (captain), Murugan Subramani, Jaysiva Ganesamurthi, Girish Hiranandani, Krishnendu Chatterje, Amit Kumar Bedaka, Partheeban Chinnamut, Neeraj Singh Patel, Vivek Hegde, Kishore Krishnagiri, Vivek Mahato
