The third match of the ongoing Vanuatu T10 League will see the Ifira Sharks and MT Bulls taking on each other in yet another exciting clash at the Hybrid Oval.
Both the teams began their campaign with losses against the Mighty Efate Panthers, and they will be keen to bounce back to winning ways with a good performance in this match.
The MT Bulls' captain Andrew Mansale's 38-ball 75 went in vain as his side failed to chase down a 129-run target, with none of the other batsmen managing to reach double digits. The Sharks too failed to put bat to the ball against the Panthers and were bowled out for just 35.
However, one positive for the Sharks was the top effort from the bowlers to snaffle five of the Panthers' wickets, even during the small 36-run chase.
Coming into this game on the back of a loss each, both teams will be keen to put their best foot forward and pick up a win.

The first two matches on this surface allowed the batsmen to play their shots freely and the quick outfield worked to the favour of the batters. Pacers also had a little on offer with some movement early on under overcast conditions, and with the same conditions expected for this game, the Sharks batsmen will hope to come good on the day.
