Hsinchu TItans will lock horns with Taiwan Daredevils in the 3rd qualifier of the pool 2. The Titans ended up at the 3rd position in Group A points table with a single win and 2 losses. Taiwan Daredevils, at the same time, also had a similar trajectory at the group stage. They also lost 2 games and managed to win only 1 in 3 games. However, they finished below the Titans in the points table courtesy an inferior net run-rate. When these 2 sides met earlier in the competition during the group stage, Hsinchu Titans defeated Taiwan Daredevils by 6 wickets. But, after that, the Titans went on to lose their next 2 games against TCA Indians and Taiwan Dragons. They lost those games by 3 runs and 20 runs respectively. Taiwan Daredevils, after losing to the Titans, managed to win the 2nd game against TCA Indians by 7 wickets. However, they lost their final and third against Taiwan Dragons by 7 wickets to conclude the group stage.
In the qualifier stage, both sides lost their respective games against Taiwan Dragons. While the Dragons defeated the Daredevils by 10 runs, they registered an easy 5 wickets win over the Titans.
Both sides haven’t been able to perform as per their potential so far in the competition. Moreover, both sides failed to build any sort of momentum after failing to perform consistently. Hsinchu Titans made a winning start to their campaign but it all has gone downhill for them. First, they lost a close game against TCA Indians and then faced a heavy defeat against the Dragons in their last group game. The Daredevils managed to mount a comeback after losing their opening game to the Titans. In the 2nd game, they defeated a strong side of the Indians. However, they failed to capitalize on the victory as they lost their final group game to the Dragons. The Titans are expected to walk into the game more confidently between the 2 sides as they have already defeated the Daredevils once in the competition. The Daredevils, however, will look at this game as an opportunity to avenge their loss.
As per our HST vs TDR Today Match Prediction, Hsinchu Titans should pick up a victory on Saturday.
