Both these teams are going into this game with a few wins under their belt. The Barmy Army side in particular is in terrific form having scored four victories in an even number of matches. However, the Falcons team practically steamrolled their opposition in their last game winning by a convincing margin of 9 wickets. This means they start as favorites to win this game and reach the finals of the competition. We will bet with Falcons to win the match and move on to the final of the FairBreak Invitational Tournament.
