The season opener of the All-Stars Exhibition T20 series 2021 will see the New Territories Tigers lock horns with the Kowloon Lions at the Mission Road Ground in Mong Kok.
The New Territories Tigers boast a strong batting lineup that consists of the likes of Waqs Barkat, Adit Gorawara and Babar Hayat. They will also bank on Kinchit Shah, who can play a crucial role with both the bat and the ball.
The Lions, on the other hand, also have Zeeshan Ali, Aizaz Khan and Nizakat Khan in their batting lineup. They will also pin their hopes on all-rounder Daniel Pascoe, who carries ample experience on his back.
Both sides lack quality bowlers in the team, which is something of a concern they would want to address before the season opener. The two sides look evenly matched on paper and hope to start their campaign on a positive note.
