ODL vs OPU Dream11 Team News:
Despite the loss, the Lions might not tinker with their combination as they lost the game in the last over. The top order failed in the previous game and now it’s time to show the character. Bowlers almost did everything to defend the target but unfortunately, they failed. Lenka and Pattnaik played an important inning in the middle overs and are expected to perform again.
Gachhayat might make ways for Barik in the upcoming game against the Lions. No other changes are expected. Patnaik will again be expected to perform well. He scored a much-needed half-century in the last game. Bowlers quite intelligently defend the target and helped their team notch the victory against the Panthers by 30 runs.
