NaMo Bandra Blasters bounced back after early defeats but stand no chance of making it to the semi-finals. The Bandra team lost their first two games and won their next two and are placed at 3rd in Group B. SoBo Supersonics and Arcs Andheri won four out of their five matches and sealed their spots in the final four. They will be now up against the struggling Group A side, Eagle Thane Strikers.
The Thane Strikers have an outside chance of finishing in final four with results helping their cause. Triumphs Knights MNE and North Mumbai Panthers take on each other with the winner getting a direct ticket for the semis. The Thane team has to ensure they beat the Bandra team by a huge margin and hope that the Aakash Tigers MWS lose against the Shivaji Park Lions in the last league encounter.

Shreyas hasn’t made a mark with the bat this season while Sarfaraz scored a fifty when he batted early due to a top-order collapse.
Eagle Thane Strikers are expected to hand NaMo Bandra Blasters their 3rd defeat.
