In the opening match, Supernovas will clash against Trailblazers at Jaipur. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST. Last year when both the teams played against each other at Wankhede, Supernovas emerged victorious.
Venue: Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur
The Sawai Mansingh track has some advantage for both medium pacers and spinners. In the initial overs of the innings, medium pacers will get some swing. Due to the dew factor in the second innings of the match, batting becomes easy. So, Captain winning the toss might opt to bowl first to get an extra advantage.
