Both Riyaan and the Eagles gave a good account of themselves with stellar performances against Nicosia XI Fighters. While the Eagles beat the Fighters by 56 runs, Riyaan smashed a competition-high 168 in their ten overs against them as they cruised to an 88-run win.
Although both teams come into this game with a lot of confidence, the Eagles will fancy their chances owing to their superior bowling unit.
However, it is anyone's game with both sides possessing the tools to deflate the other's hopes in what promises to be an exciting clash on Tuesday.

Match: Cyprus Eagles CTL vs Riyaan CC
Date: 25th August 2020, at 12:30 PM IST
Venue: Ypsonas Cricket Ground, Limassol
The pitch at the Ypsonas Cricket Ground is a good batting track with the dimensions of the ground also favouring the batsman.
However, that doesn't mean there isn't anything for the bowlers with some swing on offer with the new ball. The spinners will have to wary their pace with not much turn.
Both teams will ideally look to bat first with 100 being par at this venue.
