The Barcelona T10 League 2021 had its eighth day of action on February 17, with five Group C encounters played on the day.
The focus will shift back to Group D teams on Thursday, with another five matches featuring sides from the group scheduled to be played on February 18.
Both teams have won three of their four encounters, with the former placed higher due to their much superior net run rate.
Kharian are placed third in the group with four points in their bag. They have also lost just one encounter but have played one fewer match than the table-toppers.
Barcelona Gladiators and Bangladesh Kings are the other Group C teams to have won a match in the Barcelona T10 League 2021. The Gladiators occupy the fourth spot in the points table due to their slightly better net run rate.
Skyways have been on the receiving end of all their four encounters thus far and are yet to register a point in the tournament.
