The Arcs Andheri’s 2019 campaign in the T20 Mumbai has been a revolution as they achieved a 4-match winning streak after losing their first match by a huge margin. Their performance in 2018 was quite opposite as they succumbed to four consecutive defeats after winning the first ever match. They finished second in the Group B behind SoBo Supersonics due to lower NRR.
They will be now up against the North Mumbai Panthers who topped the Group A with three wins. The Mumbai Panthers were hanging on the edge regarding their top four finish until their 44-run win against the Triumphs Knights on Wednesday. One common point between the two teams has been the performance of all-rounders. The players with dual roles stepped up at various stages to help their teams.
The 1st semi-final of the T20 Mumbai League 2019 will be played between Arcs Andheri and North Mumbai Panthers at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The match starts at 7:30 PM local time (IST) (2:00 PM GMT).
