Team Ruby and Team Amber will face off against each other in the first semi-final of the KCA Pink T20 Challengers at the Sanatana Dharma College Ground in Alappuzha on Wednesday.
In the league stage, Team Ruby won five out of their seven matches, while Team Amber managed to win only three matches out of as many games.
Team Ruby comfortably defeated Team Amber in their last outing. T Shani was outstanding with her all-round performance, hammering 63 runs and grabbing a wicket to guide Team Ruby towards victory.
Ragi Mohan and Ajanya TP also chipped in by taking two wickets each. Team Ruby will look to continue their winning momentum and eye a final berth.
On the other hand, Team Amber would want to forget their last match and come back this time with more preparation. JS Deepthi was their lone warrior with 40 runs to her name. Anushree Anil Kumar bowled decently, grabbing the only wicket of that innings.
Team Ruby will start this fixture as clear favorites and are contenders to win the KCA Pink T20 Challengers.
