Odisha Lions are placed fourth in the Odisha T20 points table, having won two of their five games. They registered a massive 67-run victory over Odisha Tigers in their last match.
Odisha Jaguars, on the other hand, are floundering at the bottom of the points table with only a single victory from their five games. They defeated Odisha Cheetahs in their previous encounter by 48 runs to pull off their first win in the Odisha T20.
If the Jaguars are to have any chance of making it to the playoffs, they need to win all of their remaining five games.
The fans can expect some fireworks from both teams in this crucial game.
