Southern Districts Cricket Club and Darwin Cricket Club won their both matches played on Saturday in the Darwin Top End T20 2020. The two teams who are part of Pool A are currently on the top of the table and their face-off on Sunday will be a curtain-raiser for the semi-finals. The Southern Districts got better of the Tracy Village Cricket Club by 49 runs and edge past Palmerston Cricket Club by 17 runs. On the other hand, the Darwin team thumped Tracy Village by a huge margin of 98 runs and edged past the Palmerstone with a 1-run win.
The skies at the Marrara Cricket Ground are expected to clear without any clouds on Sunday morning.
The Marrara Cricket Ground has strangely been on low-scoring end compared to the last year’s Strike League T20 where the average first-innings scores read 154. None of the two matches played on Saturday at this venue reached 140. With Southern Districts and Darwin teams having solid batting line-ups, they are expected to record a bigger total this time around.
