In the first few overs of the match, the pacers may get some aid from the pitch. Being an open ground, the breeze will definitely flow in and assist in cheeky swing bowling.

Both NOR and CAK have great lineups with some best T20 players. The NOR side have a fancy bowling side with some experienced players. The main batters in the CAK batting side are in good shape and will also have the home advantage on their side. It will surely be a fascinating contest between the two great sides but the CAK will have a slight advantage over the visitors. Hence we fancy the CAK side to win this tournament.
