The 15th match of the Odisha Cricket League 2020/21 will be played between Odisha Panthers and Odisha Jaguars at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack.
The match is scheduled to start at 3:30 PM local time and IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
When Odisha Panthers and Odisha Jaguars will face off on Sunday, the outcome is likely to be one of two possibilities. Either the Odisha Panthers will outclass their opposition very easily and register a win, or the Odisha Jaguars will pull off what can arguably be considered as the upset of the season.
The Panthers will be firm favourites for this game, both because of their quality on the pitch and Jaguars’ lack of it. With 4 wins from as many games, the Panthers are occupying the first position in the points table. Occupying the first position from the opposite end of the table are the Jaguars. They have lost all of their first 3 games and are in dire need of a miracle.
