Bangla Tigers will take on Northern Warriors in the 8th match of the tournament. Bangla Tigers weren’t able to meet the expectations in their first two matches as they were outplayed by Team Abu Dhabi and Delhi Bulls by 40 runs and 6 wickets respectively. A lot of pressure is on skipper Faf du Plessis who has struggled to score runs in the last 2 matches. They are hopeful of getting their first points on the board on Sunday.

Defending champions, Northern are also on the same boat as they have lost two of their matches played in this tournament against Delhi Bulls and Team Abu Dhabi. There are no concerns in their batting department, and they need to work on their bowling skills more. Skipper Rovman Powell is in fine form, and he is striking at more than 200.
