Tamil Nadu didn’t lose a single match throughout the tournament and will be the favourites to win this game. They won the 2nd Quarter-Final against Himachal Pradesh quite comfortably, by chasing down the target of 136 runs with more than two overs and five wickets in hand.
On the other side, Rajasthan have lost only one game so far in the league. In the 4th Quarter-Final, Rajasthan beat Bihar by defending the total of 164 runs posted by them.
