Match Prediction

PES have a strong batting line-up with hard-hitting batters in the top and middle order but they lack experienced bowlers in their arsenal. ISL on the other side, have a well-designed attack with good depth in the batting and bowling departments. They have quite a number of experienced players in their whole squad. Thus we fancy ISL to win this match.
