After finishing a respectable third in the recently concluded series, Nicosia Tigers have struggled to match their performance in the Encore winning just three of their eight games so far. Having played more games than the rest, NCT can move top of the standings with two wins, and will be keen to seriously improve their NRR against a struggling Amdocs side.

Match Prediction: Nicosia Tigers (NCT) to win both games at a canter.
