Mumbai Premier League is in its most interesting mode where still two spots of the semifinals are vacant and yet needed to be decided that who will grab that spot. Tomorrow Thane Strikers will face Bandra Blasters at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In this match, both teams can be found in the lower half of the table but Blasters still have an edge to get into the semi-final. This is only possible if they beat Strikers by a big margin otherwise they have to sign off their tournament before semi-finals. We are here to cover the ETS vs NBB Dream11 Team, Preview and Team News of T20 match of Mumbai Premiere League.
Blasters still hope on qualifying into the semi-finals depending upon the results of other teams and their last league match in which a win is compulsory. In the last match, Eknath Kerkar played a blissfull inning of 70 runs for the team, and the team will be expecting the same from him in this crucial encounter. Shreyas Iyer looks to be coming back in form and tomorrow might be his day to go big in this tournament.
Thane Strikers are currently on 2nd from the bottom and are out from the contention of qualifying into the semi-finals. Aditya Tare is in top form but remained unsuccessful in changing the fate of the team. In 4 matches he went onto score 194 runs with 2 fifties at an average of 48. Kruthi Hanagavadi has been the find for Eagle in this season who has taken 7 wickets in 4 matches at an economy of 8.06. They might upset Blasters in the last league match of both the teams and sign off their tournament campaign on a high note.
