2 losses and 2 wins, TK enters this match after an eight-wicket win against the Lions. Very strong performances from players such as SK Yadav and Valasangkar, especially in their last match. This match is important for the team as it would determine their future in the tournament.

Their strategy should be to ensure that they get Shaw and More out as soon as possible.

Probable XI:

Suryakumar Yadav (c), Royston Dias, Akash Parkar, Vinayak Bhoir, Parikshit Valasangkar, Karan More, Karan Shah, Mohit Avasthi, Puneet Tripathi, Yash Dicholkar, Sumit Ghadigaonkar (wk)

North Mumbai Panthers

2 wins and 2 losses, the Panthers come in this match after a loss by 6 wickets against Aakash Tigers. The top order batsmen did very well and took the team’s score to a defendable 169. Players like Mulani and Tendulkar took the match away from them with impeccable batting.

Against Triumphs Knights, they need to watch out for SK Yadav.

Probable XI:

Siddharth Chitnis, Nikhil Patil, Sujit Nayak, Atul Singh, Shreyas Iyer (c), Aditya Dhumal, Eknath Kerkar (wk), Nikhil Date, Prasad Pawar, Sagar Chhabria, Saksham Jha

Top Picks

SK Yadav: A versatile player, SK Yadav has been in great form since the Indian T20 League. With the ability to bat at any number, SK Yadav’s performance could be the difference between making it to the next round and exiting the tournament.

Valasangkar: Along with SK Yadav, Valasangkar shone at the Wankhede stadium. They have managed to keep the title defence alive so far thanks to these two players.

Sujit Nayak: Memories of the previous season would come crashing back as Nayak takes the stage in this very important match for North Mumbai Panthers. He had missed out on a century by a run. He realises that his performance here could seal his berth at the Indian T20 League.

Shreyas Iyer: Shreyas Iyer didn’t make it to the world cup this year and it was purely bad luck. Often compared to Sehwag in batting style and mannerism; Iyer is a solid middle-order batsman with a healthy strike rate

Fantain Fantasy XI

Wicket-keeper: Sumit

Batsmen: More, Vikrant, Shaw, SK Yadav

Bowlers: Avasthi, Dias, Attarwala
