THE PREDICTION

After a thrilling 2 run victory in their opening match, Assam were brought down to earth against Tamil Nadu last time out. After posting a disappointing 126/7, they failed to pick up a single wicket in their defence of the total as Tamil Nadu chased their target down with five overs to spare. They have an opportunity to get back on the winning trail here against Jharkhand who have suffered defeat in both their opening Group B matches. This contest will likely depend which Assam side turn up with the bat. If they can replicate their batting performance against Hyderabad with 19-year-old all-rounder Riyan Parag showing once again why he is so highly rated, then it should prove enough to guide Assam to their second win of the competition against a struggling Jharkhand side.
