Sikkim vs Mizoram Match Prediction
While both sides haven’t done well in the competition, Mizoram still have some quality players present in their lineup.
Although Sikkim have accumulated a win under their belt, dealing with players like Uday Kaul, Taruwar Kohli and Iqbal Abdulla could be a daunting task for them.
If Mizoram could strike the right chord, they would get closer to notch up their first win in the tournament.
Prediction: Mizoram to win this contest.
Q. Uday Kaul to take 2 or more catches?
