Bellary Tuskers once again succumbed under pressure crashed to yet another defeat in the ongoing Karnataka Premier League. They're placed second from the bottom of the table and having played four matches already, the chances of their qualification to the next round are pretty slim, if not zero. They are set to lock horns with Bijapur Bulls in their upcoming match which is to be played at KSCA Ground, Mysore. The match would be last hope for Bellary Tuskers to maintain their hope to qualify, albeit close to negligible. Bulls, on the other hand, will be looking to win the match, get back to the winning ways and get back in to hunt for the playoff spot.
It's been a tough tournament for the last year runners-up, Bijapur Bulls, thus far and they'd like to turn it around with the change in the venue. They are yet to get off the mark with a win. They lost their first match to Hubli Tigers and then two of their matches were washed out due to relentless rain.
Bharat Chipli got an excellent start against the Tigers, the only match the Bulls have played in the tournament. He played a sensible knock of 29 in just 25 deliveries when others were getting dismissed at the other end.
Naveen MG played a quickfire innings of 44 runs which allowed the Bulls to get to a respectable total. Their trump card will be their spinners, KP Apanna and KC Cariappa, who were brilliant in this year's domestic season. The last game didn't turn out to be pretty well for Apnanna as he conceded 20 runs in his two overs. It, however, went all right for Cariappa who was pretty economical and picked up a wicket in the process.
Bharat Chipli, Shishir Bhavane, KL Shrijith, Mir Kaunan Abbas, KN Bharath, Suneel Raju, Gneshwar Naveen, Ronit More, KC Cariappa, KP Appanna, Zahoor Farooqui.
With a loss against Bengaluru Blasters on Friday in their last game, the forgetful tournament continued to get worse for the Tuskers. They've already played four games and will be desperate for a big win in this match, so as to have the slightest of chances to qualify for the playoffs.
Their opener Rohan Kadam has carried his last year's form into this year but barring Devdutt Padikkal, no one has supported him well. Abhinav Manohar played a brilliant 61 runs knock from only 28 deliveries, but the story was same then as well as no other batsman got going.
Slow left-arm bowler Abrar Kazi has handled the bowling well thus far and his bowling will once again be a key to how their bowling fares in the upcoming matches. T Pradeep, who was their biggest buy in the auction, as done well as he's picked five wickets in two matches.
Rohan Kadam, CA Karthik, Devdutt Padikal, CM Gautam, Abrar Kazi, Abhinav Manohar, GK Chiranjeevi, Manjesh Reddy, Ritesh Bhatkal, T Pradeep, SL Akshay.
The strategy of bolstering bowling attack hasn't worked at all for the Tuskers. They have a pretty good bowling lineup, but no support from their batting has let them down. Bulls, on the other hand, haven't played much and weren't particularly impressive in their opening game. With an excellent bowling attack on a suitable Mysore, the track will certainly help the Tuskers. Rohan Kadam, Devdutt Padikkal, and Abhishek Manohar have done well for them and we think they'd come good to help Tuskers score their first win in the upcoming game.
