SHARJAH – The third match of the group stages of the glamorous T10 Cricket League 2017 will be played between Bengal Tigers and Punjabi Legends on Friday, December 15 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
The match is scheduled to begin at 16:00 local time (12:00 GMT | 17:00 PKT).
Team Bengal is led by Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed. He has a balanced side to with batsmen like DM Bravo (West Indies), C Delport (South Africa) and JS Charles (West Indies), and bowlers like Mustafizur Rehman (Bangladesh), Sunil Narine (West Indies) and Muhammad Nawaz (Pakistan).
He also has handy allrounders of Darren Sammy (West Indies) and Anwer Ali’s (Pakistan) stature.
Despite having a stronger side in the opening game of the league, team Bengal failed to win the game. This will be their only chance to stand any chance to stay in the league. If they lose today, they’ll surely be packing.
Led by star all-rounder Shoaib Malik, Punjabi Legends is an excellent blend of experience and young blood. They have seasoned campaigners like Malik, Misbah ul Haq, Ravi Bopara and Abdul Razzaq, then they have young legs like Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Carlos Brathwaite and Usama Mir.
This is expected to be another thriller.
