It has been a cracking start to Season 2 of the T10 League in Sharjah, with all eight teams having won a game, but also lost one, in the opening days of action.

The final round of the group stages, before the second round starts on Monday, begins on Saturday. Here is a look at the fixtures and what to expect.

Sindhis v Pakhtoons, 6.30pm

The final round of Group A games begin with all four sides on two points after two games.

Shane Watson has been key to the Sindhis batting, with 42 and an unbeaten 50, and his teammates will look to the Australian to lead by example again.

Shahid Afridi's Pakhtoons strolled past Rajputs by nine wickets in their last outing, with Andre Fletcher's 68 off 27 balls the difference maker.

Prediction: Pakhtoons demonstrated they could keep it tight with the ball in their last outing and should have too much for Sindhis.

Bengal Tigers v Punjabi Legends, 8.45pm

Both sides come into this game on the back of emphatic defeats in their respective second matches in Group B.

Jason Roy has top-scored for Bengal in both matches and the Englishman will fancy his chances of keeping up his run of form against a Punjabi side that went for 183 off 10 overs against Northern Warriors on Friday.

Prediction: Bengal Tigers roar back to form
