Match Preview – 31st Match – Semi Finals 1: Saffron Strikers vs Nutmeg Warriors
The first semi-finals feature the top of the table Saffron Strikers against the 4th place finishers Nutmeg Warriors.
In the Spotlight
Saffron Strikers who won 7 of their 10 round robin matches will be looking to continue their good run in the tournament by advancing to the finals. In their last match the batsmen did not score with much fluency which restricted them to just 104 off their 10 overs. The Bowlers in their recent games have rescued them on numerous occasions. The Strikers would be depending on their team to put in a good all-round performance to book their ticket for the finals.
Nutmeg Warriors captained by Andre Fletcher will be hoping to lift the levels of their game and put in a good performance in the finals. The Warriors have been underwhelming with the bat in their most recent matches and would be depending on their batsmen to come good in the business end of the tournament. Their bowlers have improved as the tournament progressed and would be expected to put in another good performance in the semi-final.
The weather is forecasted to be sunny and with a slim chase of rain.
Batsmen have enjoyed themselves all tournament and the wicket produced for this match should provide little assistance to the bowlers.
