It has been two massive losses for Nasir Hossain’s side after their win in the first game. They went down by 5 wickets against Team Abu Dhabi failing to defend a good total. In the last two games their bowlers have looked completely out of form and this is something that Hossain would want his players to work on in this game.
Batting looks good with Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Kennar Lewis scoring runs in the previous games. But the side would look for runs from the middle order comprising of Chadwick Walton, Alex Davies and Devon Thomas who haven’t contributed much. Hossain will have a very important role to play towards the end of the innings.
Andre Fletcher’s side finished on the third spot on the points table during the group stage winning only one in their three games. It was a big loss for them in the last game where went down against the Northern Warriors by 30 runs with their bowlers looking clueless The Devils too are in poor form and Fletcher would look to make use of this opportunity in this game.
Andre Fletcher is in tremendous form and he would look to provide a positive start in the game alongside Johnson Charles. Chirag Suri did well in the last game and this would give him lot of confidence. With Afif Hossain and Tom Moores in the lineup they have good hitters of the ball. Karim Jannat and Adam Hose too can hit the ball hard and this adds to their advantage.
