The final group stage game of the inaugural Saurashtra Premier League will be a battle to clinch a place in the finals for both sides. Sorath Lions registered their third win of the campaign on Monday, helping them confirm a place in the finals with ease. This leaves both Kutch Warriors and Zalawad Royals battling for the other spot.
The equation is as simple as it gets for both sides. A victory for either would ensure a place in the finals and a defeat will make them wait for another year to chase the title. Kutch Warriors are coming on the back of a huge win over the Gohilwad Gladiators and are keen to deliver another knockout punch in the final fixture of the group stages.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Sheldon Jackson being on the same side is a huge bonus for the Zalawad franchise. Both sides come into this fixture on the back of a 10-wicket win and there is no dearth of momentum. Hence, it will be a pulsating fixture at Rajkot to decide who will find a place in the final.
The 10th match of the Saurashtra Premier League T20 2019 will be played between Zalawad Royals and Kutch Warriors at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
