Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Vanuatu Blast T10 League is all set to commence on Thursday with the game between MT Bulls and Mighty Efate Panthers. Vanuatu Cricket has decided to cash in on the situation with this league as no cricket is being played across the world at the moment. The three-team competition has Ifira Sharks as the other side which is also scheduled to play against the Panthers.

No wonder the Bulls and the Panthers will look to give their best and come out victorious in the opening game of the league. Andrew Mansale will lead the MT Bulls while Joshua Rasu has been named the skipper for Mighty Efate Panthers. Both the players are the top players for their respective teams and will be hoping to lead from the front.

Weather Report

The weather forecast for this game isn’t encouraging as it is likely to rain ahead of the game. There is a 30% chance of heavens opening up during the match as well. The temperature will hover around 26 Degrees Celsius during the match.

Pitch Report

The T10 exhibition game played at the venue before the Women’s T20 Super League final last month saw the team batting first scoring 123 runs. Even the chasing team scored 105 runs in response which shows that the pitch will be a good one to bat on. The team winning the toss might look to bowl first.

Average first innings score: N/A
