South African side Titans take on Big Bash League winners Brisbane Heat at Mohali in the 2013 Champions League T20 on Tuesday.
Where to Watch Live
Play starts at 11:30am BST, with British Eurosport providing live coverage in the UK.
Both teams lost their opening fixtures in Group B last week and will be now looking to bounce back with a win today. The Titans did well with the bat against IPL heavyweights Chennai Super Kings, posting 185 runs on the board. Captain Henry Davids (52) gave the side a good start, while AB de Villiers (77 from 36) provided the fireworks towards the end. However, the Indian franchise made full use of the home conditions and chased down the target comfortably. Most bowlers were taken to the cleaners but meduim paceman Rowan Richards stood out with figures of 3 for 29.
Brisbane, on the other hand, were also excellent in the first half of their match against Trinidad & Tobago. Their bowlers took advantage of the conditions and restricted the Caribbean side to a meager total of 135, with young seamer Alister McDermott picking up four wickets. However, Heat's batsmen also failed to deliver like their opponents and were eventually bowled out for 110, with only opener Joe Burns (45) finding some momentum.
Both sides need to raise their game and get a result today, if they hope to progress further in this competition.
What Players Say
de Villiers: "I love playing in this country. The Indian crowds are very loud and it's nice to give them some entertainment and something to cheer about. These big crowds really get me going as well."
Burns: "Our batsmen did not adjust to the conditions under lights and it is an area that we need to improve for the next game. We have to improve soon if we have to win the rest of the games now. There is no more chance to make errors."
