As seen on the previous three days of the tournament, the Ypsonas strip is batsmen's delight. Expect the teams to win the toss and bat first and slam a score around 100. The outfield gets progressively fast and the batsmen get full value for their shots.
The weather will be sunny with no rain forecasted. The temperature will hover in the early 30 degress celsius mark making it hot and sticky for the players to slog it out in the middle. They will need to keep their fitness on point to get over the line.
To challenge a mighty Punjab side will require the Tigers side to really dig deep. With a powerful batting lineup, the NTCC bowlers and their task is cut out. Make early inroads, expose the middle order that hasn't been tested andfinally weather the experienced bowling line-up of Punjab. The task is gargantuan but we have seen funny thi gs happen in this game.
Last 5 Head To Head
The table topper will be playing against a team at the bottom at the points table. This uneven competition can only be salvaged if the NTCC side play out of their skin.
