It is the second day of action in the T10 League in Sharjah. Here is what to watch for.

Rajputs v Maratha Arabians, 6.30pm

Mohammed Shahzad's unbeaten 74 off 16 balls got Rajputs and the tournament off to a flier last Wednesday.

But Rajputs have not won since, losing to Pakhtoons and then having their match with Kerala Knights rained off on Sunday.

Maratha Arabians were only third in Group B and their batting has looked fragile so far, with scores of 78 all out and 94-6 (off nine overs) in their previous two games.

Prediction Rajputs to return to winning ways

Sindhis v Northern Warriors, 8.45pm

Northern Warriors topped Group B in the group stages and they have had strong performances in their batting and bowling units so far.

Nicolas Pooran has hit two successive half centuries, while Hardus Viljoen and Wahab Riaz have both shone with the ball.

Shane Watson will likely be key to Sindhis hopes again, having top-scored in all three innings so far.

Prediction Northern Warriors are on a roll and they keep it up here
