The defending champions Triumph Knights MNE continue to struggle this season as they finished with only 140s in both the matches they played thus far and ended up losing both. Skipper Suryakumar Yadav played a key role with the bat in the first game scoring an unbeaten 90 while Karan More scored a 35-ball 55 in the previous match against SoBo Supersonics. They now face Eagle Thane Strikers as they search for their first win of the season. The Aditya Tare-led Thane Strikers lost to North Mumbai Panthers by a 6-run margin in their first match despite a fighting 71-run knock from Tare. The skipper got good support from the young Sarfaraz Khan in the game against Aakash Tigers MWS. Both the Mumbai senior team batsmen scored the fifties to help Thane chase down 137 comfortably after Ankush Jaiswal’s hat-trick in the first innings.
