The 12th match of the Odisha Cricket League 2020/21 will be played between Odisha Pumas and Odisha Cheetahs at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM local time and IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
Odisha Cheetahs had a wonderful start to their 2020/21 Odisha Cricket League campaign. They defeated the Tigers and the Jaguars in the first two games, but a defeat against the Panthers has taken the wind out of their sails. They will look to bounce back quickly, but standing between them and a victory will be the Odisha Pumas.
Their start was very different from the Cheetahs, as they were completely outplayed by the Panthers in their opening tie. However, they came back in style and handed the Jaguars a thrashing. Having said that, they too will be low in confidence coming into this game, as they couldn’t cope up with the Lions in their last encounter. Hence, this will be a very important tie for both sides.

ODC vs OPU Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
Ramachandra Behera might be listed as a batsman on Dream11, but he has been terrific with the ball in hand. Behera has picked up 7 wickets and has an extraordinary average of under 10.
Tied with Behera on wickets and giving him company at the top of the wicket-taking chart is the very reliable Manoj Barik. His average is just over 10.
As far as the run-scoring chart is concerned, Abhishek Raut is sitting comfortably in the second place. He has scored 102 runs in 3 games at a brilliant strike rate of 150.
Breathing down on Raut’s neck is Prayash K Singh. He has scored 100 runs, but has got a better strike rate than Raut. Notably, both of these players can break the odd partnership, if called upon to do so.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain Options – Ramachandra Behera, Abhishek Raut
Vice-Captain Options – Prayash K Singh, Manoj Barik
