PNL vs NCT Dream11 Prediction: Punjab Lions CC vs Nicosia Tigers CC– 23 July 2020 (Cyprus)
Nicosia Tigers CC will take on Punjab Lions CC in the ECN Cyprus T10 League 2020 which will be played in the Island country Cyprus. Another week and the caravan of the ECS T10 league has reached yet another country. Tournament’s first two days were null and voided due to some match-fixing issues and the tournament started with the scratch from the third day.
Lions continued their domination by winning all three of their games and they are almost into the next round whereas the Tigers lost both of their games on the first day and this will be yet another tough game for them. Lions would certainly dominate here in this game.
