Warriors XI are expected to knock Chargers XI out of the semi-final race and confirm a seat for themselves.
The 26th match of the Andhra T20, 2020 will be played between Warriors XI and Chargers XI at the Rural Development Trust Stadium, Anantapur.
The match is scheduled to start at 01:30 PM IST (08:00 AM UTC). It will be streamed live on FanCode.
The second match of Tuesday’s Andhra T20 League is going to be extremely crucial for both the teams taking part in it. This match can be considered as a virtual quarter-final for Chargers XI. They have won only 2 out of their 8 games and are currently sitting in the 6th place.
If they lose this game, all of their semi-final hopes will go for a toss. On the other hand, Warriors XI will still be in the hunt even if they lose. They have won 3 out of their 8 games and are currently placed 5th. However, because of their horrendous Net Run Rate, they will look to seal the deal with nothing but a win.
