It will be a neutral game for both the teams and their first outing in this edition of the league. The Thunder didn’t have the best of the seasons last time around as they ended at the sixth position in the points table. They are boosted with the presence of Jos Buttler and Joe Root in the line-up while the new coach Shane Bond also brings a lot to the table.
