Kerala Knights vs Rajputs: PREVIEW

The final game of Group A will see the Kerala Knights take on the Rajputs. Both teams have won one and lost one and will both be looking to finish with a victory that could send them to the top of the group.

Rajputs came out all guns blazing in their opening encounter and registered a massive win over the Sindhis but then were thrashed in their second game by the Pakhtoons, who are currently top of Group A.

It was the other way around for the Kerala Knights, who began with a convincing victory over the Pakhtoons in their opening game but lost to Sindhis in their previous encounter.

Both teams know that a win will guarantee them of top spot in the group courtesy of their superior run rate, compared to the Pakhtoons, who are currently top. Who will come out on top in the 11th game of the T10 League and go one step closer to clinching the title? Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium in Sharjah will have the answer.
