The Champions League T20 is now reaching squeaky-bum time for the few teams who still have a chance to progress to the semifinals of the competition. Every single point and result matters in Group B, unless you are Brisbane Heat, who are yet to win a match.

The Titans from South Africa take on Trinidad & Tobago from the West Indies, and both sides have it all to play for. The South African outfit could unsettle Chennai at the top of the table if they win with a convincing run-rate, which should seal their qualification in the semifinals.  

Trinidad & Tobago need to win if they want to keep their hopes alive and then cross fingers for other results to go their way in order to secure qualification. A win for T&T will move them into second place on eight points, level with the Titans. T&T then have one game remaining on Wednesdayagainst Chennaibut will also be keeping an eye on the result between the Sunrisers and Brisbane. A win for the Sunrisers puts them level on eight points with the Titans and T&T. T&T then have to beat Chennai in order to qualify straight up, otherwise it will all come down to the complication that is net-run rate.

Weather:  The day should be warm and humid with a couple of thunderstorms forecast throughout it, according to Accuweather. The problem is for the evening, with a thunderstorm and periods of rain forecast for the evening. This isn't good news for the Sunrisers, who have a must-win game to play.


Titans vs Trinidad & Tobago - Key Men


Henry Davids has racked up 155 runs in three games at an average of 51.66. While he struggled on the international circuit just a few months ago, Davids has finally showed what earned him that kind of call up in the first place. With two 50s, 14 fours and a strike rate of 133.62, the Titans will be relying on Davids to set the tone at the top of the order once again.


Sunil Narine is the joint second-highest wicket taker in the competition with six wickets in two games at an average of 5.66. With the pitches being relatively batsmen friendly, Narine's ability to subdue the run-rate will be crucial. The Titans are on a two-match winning streak and have failed to score more than 140 just once in the competition.

Sunrisers vs Brisbane - Key Men


The Sunrisers have been somewhat hot and cold in this season's Champions League T20. They were very good in the qualifiers, winning two out of three, but have managed quite the opposite in the main draw. The Sunrisers have won just one of their three games, but Shikhar Dhawan still sits comfortably at the top of the run-scorers list, when the qualifiers are included. He's managed 250 in six games at an average of 41.66 and against a Brisbane Heat side who have seemingly forgotten how to play cricket, Dhawan surely fancies his chances.


Brisbane have been really poor all tournament, and the best they can hope for is a consolation win of some sort. Their key man certainly won't come from their batting line-up, which has been woeful. James Hopes has the most runsjust 61 in three games. Dan Christian will have to salvage some pride for the men from Australia; he has four wickets in three games at a reasonable economy rate of 4.88.
