On Tuesday night, the Bangla Tigers will play The Chennai Braves in the 12th game of the Abu Dhabi T10 League. The match will showcase two teams who have struggled to find form throughout the competition.
This game cannot afford anything less than a win for either team. With a single win and two losses in three games, the Bangla Tigers stand fourth in the points table.
The Chennai Braves, on the other hand, are having a terrible season so far. They are yet to score a goal after losing their first three games. They were defeated by Team Abu Dhabi by eight wickets in their previous game.
It's a good surface for batting, with some help for slower bowlers. The captain who wins the toss will almost certainly invite the opposing team to bat first.
In their most recent game, the Tigers earned their first victory of the season. For this match, they are likely to use the same starting lineup.
While the Brave’s batting order has looked great thus far, their bowling line has been poor. On the other hand, they don't have any strong bowling options on the bench. Yusuf Pathan could be replaced by Samiullah Shinwari as the only possible change.
After making their debut in the league, the Bangla Tigers will be confident. However, they continue to struggle with stability in both batting and bowling. They'll have to correct their mistakes if they want to win back-to-back games.
At the same time, the Chennai Braves must address some major bowling issues. Despite having a solid batting lineup, they have yet to win a game. If the Braves are to win their first match in the tournament, they will have to be brave with their bowling decisions and plans.
