98 with nine sixes is Dawid Malan‘s returns in the previous game. He is not known for his big hitting and is seen as a steady batter, who anchors the innings well. Malan though, has it in him to hit the big sixes and often uses them well to cause a sudden shift in strike-rate. This season he is doing that pretty well, striking a balance between attack and defense, which is allowing him to be pretty consistent.
With the batting failing to come off, the onus to win a game fell on the bowlers. The bowling unit responded pretty well, with Richardson leading the way. He marshalled the attack nicely, taking two wickets and controlling the run flow to help clinch a thriller. He has a wide range of varieties and is a handful in the death overs.
TRT are winless but may have a tough time against BPH. While BPH are inconsistent with the bat, they have a stronger bowling unit, which could help them win games even in the batting fails like it did a few games ago. With a slightly better performing bowling attack, BPH may fancy themselves in the upcoming game.
