As a result, Faisalabad Wolves and Kandurata Maroons have only pride to play for this evening.
The outcome of the game between Sunrisers and Otago today will depend largely on the performance of their in-form batsmen: Shikhar Dhawan and Brendon McCullum. Neither of these hard-hitting batsmen would like to let the momentum slip away before the main draw of the competition begins.
Meanwhile, Sunrisers coach Tom Moody said it is a pleasure working with players such as Dhawan, who have a strong desire to improve their skills and evolve as a cricketer.
“He has done a good job, he is going to blossom every single game he plays, his leadership is excellent. The positive thing about Shikhar is that whether he is captaining or batting, he constantly wants to improve,” Moody said.
