Chui Challengers performed exceptionally well during their opening game against Tembo Stars on Sunday. Despite losing the toss and being asked to bat first, the Challengers posted the highest team total of the tournament. Kishen Kamania and Jitin Singh helped them score 141 from their 20 overs, before they defended the target with ease. Johnson Nyambo picked up three wickets for them and was the pick of the bowlers on the day.
Buffalo Blasters have not endured the best of starts to the APL T20 Championship. During the inaugural game of the tournament against Simba Kings, they ended up losing after a tightly-contested affair. However, their most recent loss to Twiga Titans was the biggest defeat suffered by a team so far in the competition. Blasters lost by 48 runs on Sunday, after they were bundled out for just 66 by the Titans.
Both teams need wins for separate reasons on Tuesday. While the Challengers can take a firm step towards reaching the next round with another win, the Blasters will know their chances will more or less diminish with another loss. The best picks for captain and vice-captain for the game are Kishen Kamania, Jitin Singh, Johnson Nyambo from Chui Challengers and Vishal Patel, Ankit Bhagel and Salumu Jumbe from Buffalo Blasters.
