T10 League 2019 Maratha Arabians vs. Northern Warriors Match Prediction

This could be the same story as last year’s second Eliminator final when the Maratha Arabians were trounced by the Northern Warriors in a commanding display. The Warriors have ample hitting power in the form of Andre Russell, Nicholas Pooran (highest run-getter last year) and Lendl Simmons while their bowling unit looks sorted with Sammy, Raza, Deyal and Wahab Riaz.

Yet, the Maratha Arabians are a star-studded lineup this time around with Dwayne Bravo, Yuvraj Singh, Chris Lynn, Lasith Malinga, Mohammad Irfan and others. On the face of it, the Warriors have the more well-balanced team on paper although the Arabians are well stocked this time around. If the Arabians can contain the West Indian power hitters early on then they have a chance of restricting the Warriors.
