Lalitpur Patriots have been put in to bat first in their Eliminator match against Pokhara Rhinos in the second game at the TU Stadium on Wednesday.
Patriots had finished third in the league stage game and had beaten Rhinos by six wickets in a nail-biting thriller on Tuesday. The rematch will give Rhinos an opportunity to avenge that defeat.
While Patriots remain unchanged meaning they have once again dropped Mehboob Alam, while Rhinos have made one change. Rhinos have brought in seamer Kishor Mahato in place of Santosh Bhatt. Santosh played against Patriots, his only game in this season’s EPL.
The winner of this match will take on Sharad Vesawkar’s Bhairahawa Gladiators in the second Qualifier on Thursday. Gladiators had lost to Biratnagar Warriors by eight wickets in what was a clinical display for Paras Khadka-led side.
