Dhangadhi, February 16, 2019, 12:45 PM IST
The two bottom-placed teams will lock horns at the Fapla Cricket Ground in Dhangadhi tomorrow noon to open their account. Bottom Placed Dhangadhi Stars will square off against bottom-second placed Mahendranagar United to secure their first win of the season.
Two times champions, Dhangadhi Stars are still looking for their first win of the season and are placed at the bottom with three defeats in as many encounters. They faced 4 wickets defeat in the tournament opener against Kathmandu Goldens, fell short by 5 runs while chasing a low total of 95 runs against CYC Attariya and lost the third fixture by 21 runs against Biratnagar Kings.
Stars would be desperate to secure a win and return to winning ways.
Mahendranagar United’s last encounter with Biratnagar Kings ended in a no result when the rain came into play. United are sitting at the bottom-second place with 2 loss and 1 no result in three outings and now face a must-win situation in front of them. United must win their last two fixtures against Dhangadhi Stars and CYC Attariya to stay alive in the tournament and qualify for the playoffs.
The Fapla Cricket Ground in Dhangadhi, Nepal is hosting the tournament for the first time and is expected to be flat and neutral with little assistance to both batsmen and pacers. The previous games played here have been mostly low scoring so expect another low affair total with bowlers and all-rounders playing a bigger role.
