Despite having some of the best players from Odisha, The Lions have found it difficult to win matches and are lacking consistency here. However, they will come into this contest after a big win over the Tigers, one of the strongest teams in the tournament. They went on to win the match by 67 runs.
It is not like Jaguars are a poor form. Though they have lost all their five matches, they didn’t go down without a fight. In fact, in their last outing, the team had managed to take Odisha Panthers, the top team, to the super over. Jaguars do have quality players but it is just the timing.
