The Sobo Supersonics got off to a great start in the T20 Mumbai 2019 winning their first matches comfortably. They defeated the Arcs Andheri by a huge 48-run margin in their first game and followed it with a 4-wicket win against the defending champions Triumph Knights MWE. Their bowling was spot on in both matches as their bowlers scalped 17 wickets across the two games including four by Deepak Shetty.
They will now face the new entrants of the T20 Mumbai, Aakash Tigers MWS on Saturday. The Aakash Tigers defeated Triumph Knights in a similar fashion like the Supersonics did but crumbled with the bat against the Eagle Thane Strikers in the 2nd match. They could only pile up 136/8 in their 20 overs, a total which was never enough under lights. Thane franchise got to the target in the final over for the loss of four wickets.
The 10th match of the T20 Mumbai League 2019 will be played between Sobo Supersonics and Aakash Tigers MWS at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The match starts at 7:30 PM local time (IST) (2:00 PM GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports 2, Star Sports 2 HD and Star Sports 3. Live streaming available on Hotstar.
The night games have been slightly better for the batters than the afternoons. The scores picked up on 4th day after sub 140 totals in both matches on Thursday. The team batting first would require at least 175 to be in a position to win while defending.

Injury and Availability News:
(Will be added when there is an update)
Arjun Tendulkar has made a decent start to his T20 Mumbai stint with scores of 23 in both games. His bowling hasn’t been that attractive but seemed to be a good hitter of the ball given the way he has struck the ball thus far. Arjun seems to have got the license to go big while batting at No.3 and it is a matter of time before he converts the starts he has been getting.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Parag Khanapurkar has been in some form this tournament and has to be the first choice as captain or vice-captain. The all-rounders Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani and Rohan Raje are worthy pickings for multipliers.
Other options – Kaustubh Pawar, Aakarshit Gomel, Deepak Shetty, Anjdeep Lad, D Subramanian, Dhrumil Matkar
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – D Subramanian
Batsmen – Hersh Tank, Parag Khanapurkar (C), Kaustubh Pawar, Aakarshit Gomel (VC)
All-Rounders – Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani, Rohan Raje
Bowlers – Anjdeep Lad, Badrey Alam, Deepak Shetty
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Yogesh Takawale
Batsmen – Jay Bista (VC), Hersh Tank, Aakarshit Gomel, Parag Khanapurkar
All-Rounders – Arjun Tendulkar (C), Shams Mulani, Dhrumil Matkar
Bowlers – Anjdeep Lad, Nehal Katakdhond, Deepak Shetty
The all-rounders category is filled up with the likes of Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani, Rohan Raje and Dhrumil Matkar. Considering their batting positions and the average number of overs they would be bowling, the trio of Arjun, Mulani and Raje are ideal from this category. Only one of Bista and Kaustubh can be picked among batsmen due to their form and costs.
Aakash Tigers MWS are expected to bounce back handing Sobo Supersonics the first defeat.
