The 6th match of the Odisha T20 tournament will be played between the Odisha Pumas and the Odisha Jaguars at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.
The match is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM Local Time (02:00 PM GMT) and will be streamed live on FanCode.
When Jaguars will take on Pumas in today’s second game of the Odisha Cricket League, a lot will be at stake. Both teams have started their campaigns with a defeat, and given how jam-packed the fixtures are, two defeats on the trot will surely dampen a team’s confidence quite significantly.
The Pumas were outplayed by Odisha Panthers in the first game. Their batting unit could only muster 141, while their bowling unit were taken for a ride all over the park by the Panthers’ batsmen. Jaguars saw their batting unit collapse against the Odisha Cheetas. Both teams will be desperate to get to winning ways.
