In Match No. 10 of Odisha Cricket League 2020-21, Odisha Lions take on the Odisha Jaguars at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack. While Odisha Lions have had one win so far, Odisha Jaguars are yet to open their account in this tournament.
Odisha Lions didn’t have a great start to this season of the Odisha Cricket League. They lost their first two games after batting first.
However, their bowlers put up an excellent show in the third game against Odisha Pumas. That helped them restrict the Odisha Pumas to just 101 before the openers chased it down. The Sujit Skhetra Lenka-led side will hope to continue the winning run.
On the other hand, Odisha Jaguars have lost all their three games of Odisha Cricket League so far. They are reeling at the bottom of the points table.
Barring their first game, where they scored 141 batting first, the Odisha Jaguars batting line-up has been disappointing. They have faltered while chasing 142 and 129 in their last two games. Hence, Girjia Rout and his men need to step up before time runs out.

The track at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack has been typically a good one to bat on. However, bowlers too have been dictating terms in this edition of the Odisha Cricket League.
In fact, the average score batting first after eight games, is just 133. Thus, more of the same can be expected in this game. 145-150 could well prove to be a winning score. However, teams chasing have won more games so far in Odisha Cricket League.
