The Semi-Final 2 of 2020 Darwin Top End T20 will be played between Waratah Cricket Club and Darwin Cricket Club at the Marrara Cricket Ground.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (6:00 AM IST) (12:30 AM GMT). This game can be streamed live on the MyCricket Facebook page.
Waratah Cricket Club consists of some fine batsmen in their arsenal with the likes of James Seymour, Isaac Conway, who will have the responsibility to gather some good runs on the back of their stylish batting. On the other hand, their bowling unit also looks pretty much on the mark, who restricted the opponent in the previous game at a nominal score of 107 runs in 20 overs. And, now WCC will be expecting the same kind of performance from their bowling unit.
Darwin Cricket Club also looks settled with the majority of their players performing decently in their respective department. However, they still need a bit of improvement in their batting department that collapsed in their previous match against Southern District CC. If they manage to do so, then they can expect some good results in the upcoming game.
There is a slight chance of rain during this match at the venue. However, it shouldn’t be a problem for the teams. The temperature will hover in the late 20s with the humidity expected to be on the higher side.
In this tournament, the bowlers seem to have an upper hand against the batsmen. Meanwhile, the batters have so far struggled to smack boundaries and sixes with effortless flow. However, the side batting first has ended up winning most of the games. So, the side winning the toss will also look to follow the same trend.
