Preview:

Singapore is having a mixed tournament at home as they started with a defeat against Nepal which was their first loss in the T20I format. However, in the following game, they took down Zimbabwe in a thriller by 4 runs. It was Singapore’s first-ever International match against a full-member nation and they made that 18 overs-a-side match a memorable one.

Zimbabwe defeated Nepal in the remaining two matches and are placed at top of the table ahead of the final match. Whoever among Singapore and Zimbabwe will win the game on Thursday, they will end up as the table-toppers of the tournament. The abandoned fixture between Singapore and Nepal on Wednesday has sealed Nepal’s possibility of finishing at No.2 or No.3.


Weather Condition/Report:

The game to be played on Wednesday got abandoned due to rain and we might see similar weather for the final game of the tournament. However, the weather is expected to get cleared by 5 PM local time which is over two hours before the scheduled start.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Zimbabwe managed to defend the target of 161 against Nepal team in the previous match which doesn’t have a great batting depth. However, on Thursday, we might see a successful chase of 160+ given the good conditions to bat at the Indian Association Ground.

Average first innings score: 152 (unaffected T20I matches)
