    It means that at the moment neither team has an advantage over the other.
    Is this England v India?

    Iím not a teacher.

    Hi sraij_81,

    There are my guesses:

    Match evenly poised = Both teams need a victory in a late bid to snatch promotion, but neither holds the advantage.= Their game ended in a draw. = They played a drawn game.

    poise (v) = held balanced or steady in readiness: stood poised for the jump.

    poise (v) = to carry or hold in equilibrium; balance.

    Regards,

    V.
