Titans XI are expected to knock Legends XI out of the semi-final race by handing them a defeat.
The 27th match of the Andhra T20 League will be played between Legends XI and Titans XI at Rural Development Trust Stadium, Anantapur.
The match is scheduled to start at 9: 30 AM local time and IST and can be streamed live on Fancode.
‘Poles apart’ is how we can describe the two teams who will lock horns at Anantapur on Wednesday. On one hand will be the clinical Titans XI, while we will have a clueless Legends XI on the other. The former have shown great consistency in Andhra T20 League.
Having won 7 out of their 8 matches, they are sitting comfortably at the top of the table. Their semi-final ticket is already booked, while Legends XI still have an outside chance of making it. Having won only 1 game so far, they will need to win both of their remaining games and hope for Chargers XI and Warriors XI to throw their chance away.
