In the first match of the fourth round of matches at the Vanuatu Blast T10 League 2020, we will see MT Bulls and Mighty Efate Panthers locking horns with each other.
MT Bulls will look to turn around their campaign with a win. The team hasn’t really got off to a great start in the tournament so far and would want to regain some momentum.
MT Bulls have so far won only one match out of their four matches.
On the other hand, Mighty Efate Panthers have had a contrasting tournament so far.
The team has gone on to play some amazing cricket and performed exceedingly well.
They have won three matches out of the four which they have played so far.
As far as Panthers are concerned, they would want to solidify their position at the top of the table.
The two teams have squared off twice in the league already. MT Bulls had won the last encounter by three wickets.
While the match before that had belonged to Mighty Efate Panthers, who had won the match by 37 runs.
Weather reports paint a really good picture for the fans. No rain is expected on the day of the match.
The weather will be partly cloudy though. The temperature will be between 22 and 25 degrees celsius.
The pitch at the Vanuatu Cricket Ground has favoured the batsmen and the bowlers equally.
However, it has been seen that batting in the first innings has proven to be much easier than batting in the second innings.
Considering this, we can say it will be better for a team to bat first and put a score on board.
Average first innings score: 99 ( last four matches played in this league)
