Current Form Fighter:
Fighter won their last match against Stallions in an authoritative manner by 29 runs.
Stallions won the toss and elected to take the field first. The bowlers were very accurate in their lines and lengths and put the Fighter batters on to the backfoot from ball one. Priyanshu Bhoite was the lone fighter as he struck 20 off 14 balls. On the back of his reviving knock, Fighter got to a total of 93 for 9 in 20 overs.
Defending a low total of 93, the Fighter bowlers struggled in the powerplay overs but came back very strong and picked up crucial wickets to put pressure back on the chasing team. Prince Prajapati was phenomenal in his spell of 4 overs as he gave away just 12 runs and picked up 4 wickets. He single handedly turned the game on its head. In the end, Fighter were able to bowl Stallions out for 64, winning the match by 29 runs.
Current Form Challenger:
Challenger lost their last match against Gladiators by 19 runs.
Gladiators won the toss and chose to bat first.
Opener Amit Passi got dismissed cheaply early on. However, after his dismissal, Kinit Patel and Shubham Jadhav held the innings together and smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground. They stitched a partnership of 141 runs for the 2nd wicket. Jadhav made 76 in 50 balls while Kinit Patel scored 57 off 42 balls. On the back of these tremendous efforts, Gladiators were able to achieve a mammoth total of 194 for 3 in 20 overs.
Defending a huge target of 194, Gladiators bowlers especially Malhar Ghewariya bowled with discipline in the powerplay overs. Ghewariya dismissed Aayush Rai after he scored just 13 runs. Abhijit Kumar at number 3 carried on the fight and made 44 off 33 balls. However, he was dismissed at a wrong time, leaving the lower middle order with too much to do at the end.
