The first semifinal of the Jharkhand T20 League will see Dhanbad Dynamos go up against Dumka Daredevils at the JSCA International Stadium Complex. The Dynamos finished on top of the points table with 14 points while the Daredevils just managed to sneak into the top 4 after a victory in their last league match.
The Dynamos lost just three of their league stage matches, but the most striking feature of their campaign thus far is that they started with losses in their first two games but came back strong to pick up a string of wins.
On the other hand, the Daredevils won five games and lost an equal number of games during the round-robin stages. In terms of head-to-head stats, the Dynamos defeated the Daredevils twice in the league stages, and hence the former will come into this clash as favourites to walk away with a win.

The track in Ranchi is known to assist the batsmen, but mainly during the first innings. Spinners have had almost nothing to work with, while the pacers have depended on the minimal zip off the surface to cause issues for the batsmen.
