The 10th match of the Odisha Cricket League 2020/21 will be played between Odisha Jaguars and Odisha Lions 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.
Neither Odisha Jaguars nor Odisha Lions had a good start to their 2020/21 Odisha Cricket League campaign. They both suffered defeats in their first two matches, and until yesterday, were occupying the last two places in the points table. However, the complexion has changed quite a significant bit in a day.
The Lions have pulled off a huge win against the Pumas, which brought them out of the back-benchers’ squad and has put them right in the mix of top 4 contenders. On the contrary, Jaguars suffered a morale-wrenching defeat against the Tigers, which means they are yet to bag a win in this competition. They will hope Thursday will be their day, but given Lions’ performance in the last game, it looks like a long shot.
