The final of the Malaysian T10 Bash is upon us as the Northern Strikers take on the much-fancied Southern Hitters at the Kinrara Academy Oval in Kuala Lumpur.
Both teams put in professional performances in the semi-finals as they inched one step closer to becoming champions. While the Strikers have improved with each game, the Hitters are the undoubted favourites to win it all owing to their form.
In the group stage fixture between the two sides, the Hitters beat the Strikers by eight runs, although much has changed since that game. All in all, a high-scoring encounter is expected between the two sides as they fight for the mantle of Champions of the Malaysian T10 Bash 2020.

Despite this being the fourth game of the day, the pitch shouldn't change much, with another high-scoring encounter on the cards. The pacers should get some swing on early on, with the powerplay overs being crucial to the outcome of this game. However, the nature of the pitch should allow the batsmen to go big from ball one, paving the way for an exciting contest between bat and ball.
