Match updates till now:

Manipal Tigers have been performing impressively in the series, securing a convincing 89-run victory over Bhilwara Kings in their recent match. The pivotal role played by Chadwick Walton, who scored an impressive 104 runs, contributed significantly to the Tigers’ total of 211 for the loss of three wickets. Although 211 may not be considered a high score, they effectively restricted the Kings to 122 for eight wickets. Leading the team is the experienced Harbhajan Singh.

On the flip side, Southern Superstars, led by Ross Taylor, are struggling in the league, currently positioned at the bottom of the table with a net run rate of -1.159. Their recent performance was a disappointing seven-wicket loss to India Capitals. In that match, their bowlers faltered as the Capitals successfully chased down a target of 167 with 20 balls to spare, fueled by Ricardo Powell’s century.

Our prediction:

Our sports experts believe that Manipal Tigers, who are playing against one another for the first time in the league, have a good chance of winning this match given Southern Superstars’ poor performance and Tigers’ current form.
