Ahead of the match, Jerome Vinith, skipper, Calicut Heroes said “We are really glad that we have made it to the playoffs and we want to end our league stage campaign on a high. Our fan support is also to be credited for the good run of form as without them we would just be any other team. Ahmedabad has done well in both their matches in spite of ending on the losing side and I am hoping that it will be another great entertainer for the fans.”

Ahmedabad has lost both their matches by the same score line of 3-2 first against Hyderabad and then against Kochi. With three matches left for them to play this match is extremely critical for them.
