ACC has come close to promotion in the past seasons and this year they might lie in 4th place but they have an outside chance of finishing second only if they can go past Avengers.
Avengers who are in second place are the favorites with an 11 point difference between them and ACC.
Avengers who joined the league in 2016 have the ascendence to gain promotion and as long as they can all their remaining games they will be able to go up with Ceylon Lions.
The battle for promotion will go down at Kings College Budo cricket oval and the winner will be guaranteed a shot at promotion.
If ACC loses this encounter they will virtually be out of the race for promotion so they cannot afford slip-ups. They will be hoping that their old guns Micheal Kintu, Amos Kyazze, and Emma Odeng can guide the youngsters to deliver a result they need.
Avengers have the potent of Harsh Panchal the leading wicket-taker in Division 2 with 27 scalps, he will be tasked with finding those early breakthroughs to make sure they limit ACC to a small total.
The weather has been very unpredictable this year and the first round encounter between these two was washed out, they will, therefore, be praying for good weather or even taking the field 1st when you win the toss to try and play a long game.
