Devendra Rahi’s side is coming into this game after a comprehensive win over the Razees Yodhas. The skipper would be happy with the way his side defended the low score of 139 runs to clinch the game by 21 runs. They would be eyeing a win in the next game which will take them to the third spot on the points table. The side would need a good start from Sachin Sirohi and Shivam Chaudhary.
The latter played a match-winning knock in the last game. In the middle order, the likes of Manik Sharma, Rajkumar and Ankit Kumar will need to convert their starts which they failed to do in the last game. Rahi, Manoj and Rajat Kumar who got starts in the last game would be looking to build on in the next game.
It was a superb bowling performance in the last game from the Hurricanes and the captain led the side well with the new ball picking up 4 important wickets. Sandeep Saini, Kuru Guijjar and Manoj were also excellent with their line and length. Their bowling attack looks in good shape at the moment.
Nikki Saini’s side comes into this game after registering an impressive 29 run win over The Rising Stars Harpur. However, the skipper would be slightly worried about the long break they have had since that game. Their openers didn’t look in the best of form in the last game and the side would expect them to fire in the next one. The side will need a good start in the game from Abhijeet Singh and Bhindar who missed out on the last one.
Skipper Saini looks in good form but will need good support from the likes of Kapil Kumar and Jashveer Saini who missed out on the last outing. Ashok Tyagi and Shaan Saini must play a good knock down the order for the side to put up a big score as they did in the last game. Mizubir Rehman picked a fifer with the ball in the last game and would be very confident going into this one.
The side would expect a good start with the new ball from Jashveer Saini and Tyagi in the next game. Manish Kumar and Shaan Saini will need to bowl well in the supporting role against the strong batting line-up that their opponents have.

The track at Kanti Prasad Sports Stadium has slowed down since the start of the tournament with the number of games that have been played on the surface. The ball isn’t coming on to the bat easily creating trouble for the batsmen to hit. The side batting first on this surface would be in a safe position with any score above 150 runs.
Kanti Prasad Sports Stadium, Harpur is a small ground and batsmen have the scope of clearing the rope easily. But the slow nature of the track at this venue has also aided the bowlers especially the spinners who have always created doubts in the minds of the batsmen.
The last four games at this venue has been won by sides that have chased the score. The slow nature of the surface is making it difficult for the sides to put up a par score on the board. Hence we expect the side winning the toss to bowl first on this track.
The Harpur Hurricanes looked in excellent form in the last game with the ball and made a strong comeback in the game. Their top order is also doing well and the side would be expecting good support from the middle order.
As for the Highfy Warriors, they are coming into this game after a long break and this will pose a big challenge for them. While it is almost evenly split between the two sides at the moment we believe the Hurricanes have a slight edge given their recent form.
