We’re reacting to positive news as the Vipers are off the mark for the season with a six-wicket win with eight balls to spare against the Gulf Giants, the side that beat the Vipers in last year’s final.

It was a match that saw Pakistan trio Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan and Azam Khan all debut for the franchise and all played roles in the victory, while Wanindu Hasaranga produced a player-of-the-match performance with 1 for 26 and 42 from 19 balls.

Coming up we hear from Vipers captain Colin Munro as he gives us his views on the team’s performance that means with just seven matches gone in the tournament, every side has now won at least one game and lost one game.

If you want to watch any Vipers matches this season then it couldn’t be easier to buy tickets.

You can do so via the ILT20 website or at any Virgin Megastore in the UAE.
