Its the final day of league stages and the teams who will be contesting in the 11th and 12th match of the competition are Matabeleland Tuskers and Mid West Rhinos, and Mashonaland Eagles and Mid West Rhinos.
The Tuskers who have looked way too impressive throughout the competition are sitting pretty at the top of the pole with 3 wins from 5 games. A win here in this fixture will ensure their table-top finish and the confidence they will take from here will aggravate their chances in the finals.
Mountaineers, on the other hand, are just behind the Tuskers on the points table. They will be playing against the third-placed Mashonaland Eagles before this match which will definitely help them to hamper their chances to finish among the top two.
The dual round-robin format of the tournament suggests that each team will face every other team at least twice in the competition where the top two will progress to the finals while the remaining two will be battling out for the third place in the third-place play-off.
