Ifira Sharks will look to kickstart their campaign at the Vanuatu Premier T10 League on a winning note when they take on Mighty Efate Panthers in the second clash of the league at Vanuatu Cricket Stadium at Hybrid Oval on Thursday.
Nalin Nipiko will lead Ifira Sharks, while Mighty Efate Panthers will be captained by Joshua Rasu.
It will be the first match for Ifira Sharks and they will be keen to begin the league on a positive note.
Mighty Efate Panthers, on the other hand, will be playing their second consecutive match after locking horns with MT Bulls in their first clash earlier in the day. This means, the team could struggle with fatigue and tiredness, especially if they lose the toss and asked to bowl first.
The league will provide the much-needed live cricket action for the fans at a time when all the international events across the globe are at halt due to coronavirus pandemic.
