Match 15 of the KCA Pink T20 Challengers will see Team Ruby take on Team Emerald at the SD Ground in Alappuzha on Saturday.
Team Ruby have been in impressive form in the KCA Pink T20 Challengers, winning three of their five games. Led by Sasidharan Shani, Ruby are well on course for a top-two finish. But the likes of Team Pearl and Team Amber are right behind them in the points table.
Team Emerald, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of the KCA Pink T20 Challengers points table with no wins in four. They head into Saturday's game on the back of a disappointing loss to Pearl. Although they are the underdogs, Emerald have a youthful side capable of giving Team Ruby a run for their money.
Either way, a cracking KCA Pink T20 Challengers game beckons on Saturday.

Match: Team Amber vs Team Ruby
Date & Time: April 3rd, 10:00 AM IST
Venue: Sanatana Dharma College Ground, Alappuzha
The pitch is on the slower side, with the batters having to work hard for their runs. While the spinners are expected to rule the roost, the pacers should also get the ball to move around in the initial exchanges. Wickets in hand will be crucial to either side's fortunes, with 130-140 being a good total at the venue. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss as the pitch should slow down as the game progresses.
