8.45pm, Kerala Knights v Punjabi Legends

Kerala Knights, the defending champions, were frustrated in their attempts to bounce back from their shock loss to Sindhis last time out by the rain on Sunday night.

Their first second-round opponents, Punjabi Legends, finished bottom of Group B, having suffered hefty losses to Northern Warriors and Bengal Tigers.
