The Eagle Thane Strikers have struggled for consistency as they have won only one of the three matches and are placed at bottom of Group A. They started with a 6-run defeat to North Mumbai Panthers but bounced back with a 6-wicket victory over Aakash Tigers MWS. Their recent most game turned out to be a nightmare as they were restricted to just 124/9 while chasing Triumph Knights’ total of 162/7.
They will now face the in-form Arcs Andheri who are cruising with three wins from four matches. They succumbed to a 48-run loss against the SoBo Supersonics in their first match but won all the three they played since then. Andheri’s 2019 campaign has been quite opposite to that of 2018 as they lost four in a row in the inaugural editions after beginning the tournament with a comfortable win.
The 16th match of the T20 Mumbai League 2019 will be played between Arcs Andheri and Eagle Thane Strikers at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The match starts at 7:30 PM local time (IST) (2:00 PM GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports 2, Star Sports 2 HD and Star Sports 3. Live streaming available on Hotstar.
