After a hattrick of defeats, Dhangadhi Stars would look for a turnaround when they meet Rupandehi Challengers in a Dhangadhi Premier League fixture on Monday. Dhangadhi Stars have lost three of their games so far in the competition and would want to bow out on a high in what is their final game in the tournament. Can they find inspiration in the unbeaten record against the opposition?
Meanwhile, Rupandehi Challengers began their tournament on a promising note but have lost steam of late. The batsmen let them down in the last fixture against Kathmandu Goldens (Feb. 17) on Sunday as they were bowled out for a partly __. They must put on a strong performance to bolster their chances of progressing further in the competition.
