Vanuatu Blast T10 League 2020 Fantasy Cricket Tips and Match Predictions Match 3 - Ifira Sharks v MT Bulls
The 3rd match of the BetBarter Vanuatu Blast will be played between Ifira Sharks and MT Bulls at Vanuatu Cricket Ground - Hybrid Oval.
Both Ifira Sharks and MT Bulls failed to win their first match of the tournament. The teams suffered losses against Mighty Efate Panthers. While the Bulls showed a decent fight, Ifira Sharks were totally overwhelmed by the occasion and could not dish out a competitive performance.
Eddie Mansale picked up two wickets in the last game, the most by any Bulls bowler, but he also went for 23 runs from his 2 overs. Patrick Matautaava and Andrew Mansale were quite economical and gave away runs at less than 10 RPO.
All-rounder Andrew Mansale then almost single handedly threatened to take the Bulls to victory. The captain clubbed 75 runs off 38 balls in a knock that included 3 fours and 8 sixes at a strike rate of almost 200.
There was no support from any of his fellow batsmen, none at all, as apart from him no other Bulls' batsman could even reach double figures. The team could only manage 91 and lost by 37 runs.
Ifira Sharks' innings, on the other hand, capitulated for just 35 within 7.1 overs with none of their batsmen managing to reach double figures.
Their bowlers did a fine job by picking up five wickets but the total was never going to be enough. Stephane Sandy and Nalin Nipiko were the standout bowlers for the side.
MT Bulls will start the match as favorites.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
MT Bulls - Patrick Matautaava, Clement Tommy (WK), Andrew Mansale (C), Philip Tsione, Eddie Mansale, Godfrey Mangau, Wamjeo Wotu, Marcel Taea, Rival Samson, Nono Chila, Darren Wotu
Ifira Sharks - Nalin Nipiko (C), William Yamak, Jamal Vira, Bethan Moli (WK), Apolinaire Stephen, Michael Avock, Alex Stephen, Fernando Laumae, Stephane Sandy, Vince Vira, Obed Yoseph
