THE PREDICTION

Two wins from four Plate Group matches so far has not proven enough for Manipur to give themselves a chance of knockout qualification heading into the final round of group games. However, for Nagaland, a significant victory here would see them in with the chance of qualification providing other results in the group go their way. The difference between the two sides here is expected to be their respective batting strength. Whilst Manipur have at times collapsed, their two Plate Group losses seeing them manage totals of just 68/8 and 105/8 with the bat, Nagaland boast totals of 149/1 (a nine-wicket victory), 176/4 (a 100-run win) and 178/6 (a 77-run win). When added to the fact that Nagaland will enter this match far more focused and motivated with knockout qualification at stake for them, this should lead to them winning here.
