IS vs MTB Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jun 13, 2020
We have a very interesting match upcoming in the Vanuatu T10 League as the Ifira Sharks take on the MT Bulls. This is going to be the third match between these two teams and both of the previous ones have been won by the Ifira Sharks.
Interestingly, the Might Efate Panthers, the other team in this tournament, has beaten the Ifira Sharks convincingly but been beaten soundly by the MT Bulls. It is difficult to ascertain the strongest team just on the basis of these results alone because everyone seems to be beating everyone else!
Ifira Sharks vs MT Bulls Vanuatu T10 League is going to be played at the Vanuatu Cricket Ground on the 13th of June 2020.
IS vs MTB Team Previews
Ifira Sharks managed to beat the MT Bulls in the previous match they played against them but the scorecard shows that result was not entirely convincing. The captain of the Ifira Sharks, Nalin Nipko managed to score 78 not out from just 28 deliveries in that match.
A staggering inning by any measure and enough to help his team to victory.
The Ifira Sharks, though, could only manage 107 in total even after Nalin’s brilliance. In their next match against the Mighty Efate Panthers, the Ifira Sharks lost Nalin Nipko cheaply and could not even cross 60 runs in total.
The dependence of the team on just one batsman is too much and a huge risk for punters.
The Ifira Sharks have a decent bowling attack led by Obed Yosef and support from Nalin Nipko.
While the Ifira Sharks may not seem a very dangerous team on paper, they have shown in the Vanuatu T10 League that their players play better than expected against the Mighty Efate Panthers.
How much credence should one give to that?

The MT Bulls are going to come into this game with a lot of confidence even though they are yet to get the better of the Ifira Sharks in the Vanuatu T10 League 2020. Set a stiff target of 95 by the Panthers in their previous match, the MT Bulls absolutely smashed that chase!
They got to 100 in just 6.5 overs for the loss of one wicket. Andrew Mansale, Philip Tsione, and Clement Tommy put on a batting exhibition which is going to make the Ifira Sharks very nervous indeed.
A total of 10 sixes were hit by the MT Bulls in just 6.5 overs and none of the batsmen ever looked in any trouble.
The bowling attack of the MT Bulls is a bit inconsistent and often ends up leaking runs. That is something that the team must work on otherwise it will need to be bailed out by the batsmen in every match. Patrick Matautaava, Darren Wotu, Andrew Mansale, and Godfrey Mangau are all expected to be a part of the playing eleven once more.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather is expected to be a bit cloudy on match day, however, there is not too much threat of rain. The pitch has been helpful to the bowlers but batsmen can score quickly if they get their eye in. It appears as if the outfield has also quickened a bit in recent matches.
Anything around 100 is going to be tough to chase down.
