Tamizhans need a win in the upcoming match to get a move on in the league. They are 6th on the points table and a win here can boost their chances of qualification into the playoffs. They will look to get back on track.
Salem Spartans on the other hand are languishing in the second last position in the league table at the moment. They only have 1 win in the season so far and need to get a couple of back to back wins as soon as possible.

Toss: To Bowl
The pitch has slowed in recent games, allowing the bowlers to have a greater influence on the result of the game. Early on, the new ball should accomplish nothing, enabling hitters to get their eye in and score some runs in powerplay overs.
Both these teams are desperate for a win to help them increase their chances of entering into the playoffs race. However, because of squad strength and form we predict that Tamizhans will defeat the Spartans in this match.
We predict that Tamizhans will defeat the Spartans.
