About the Match

After losing to Hubli Tigers in the opening match of this season by 2 wickets, Shivamogga will try to perform better in the upcoming match against Bellary at Hubballi on 18th September. Bellary Tuskers had failed to qualify for the top four slot last season and they will try to do better this time around; Shivamogga set a target of 130 against Hubli, which proved to be insufficient against the strong batting line-up of the opponents and they will try to make amends in the upcoming contest. Both teams have good all-rounders and whichever side keeps a cool head above its shoulders will be better placed to emerge on the winning side.

Bellary Tuskers

The batting line-up consists of players like Amit Verma, Ajit Karthik, Devraj Patil, KB Pawan, Vinay Sagar, Chiranjeevi, Gundlapalli and Anil; there are all-rounders like Bharath Kondaji, Balachandra Akhil, Nagesh, Prateek Jain, Manjunath and others who can try to keep the scoreboard ticking. The bowling unit has spinners like Syed Abrar, Surya Kumar, Sunil Raju, Rohan Kadam, Nagesh, Amit Verma, Bharath Kondaji and Akshay Angadi, who can try to take regular wickets and keep the pressure on the opposition batsmen. Along with speedsters like Akhil, Manjunath, Ajit Karthik, Prasidh Krishna and Vishnu Prabhas, who can be vital to the attack here, Bellary bowlers will surely try to restrict Shivamogga batsmen whether fielding first or defending a target. Overall, they have a good mix of young talent and experienced domestic players, who can give the team an edge to conquer the opponents and provide a winning start to their campaign.

Namma Shivamogga

Sadiq Kirmani and Nikin Jose put up a splendid opening partnership of 83 runs; they provided the starting momentum to the innings batting first against Hubli Tigers. While Kirmani posted a well-made 69 off 63, Nikin contributed well with 37 runs. However, the batsmen down the line failed to impress and they fell like a pack of cards; they could muster only 129 runs, which the bowlers couldn’t defend leading to a loss by 2 wickets. Spinner Abrar Kazi put up a superb show with his spin skills as he registered a figure of 3-23; he was well-supported by Appanna, Gopal and Zeeshan Ali ,who took a wicket each but the batsmen had hardly given them enough to fight for. They have a well-balanced team of spinners and pacemen, who bring variety and depth to the attack. Batsmen like Kirmani, Stuart Binny, Jose, Deshpande, Mathias and others can try to build steady partnerships here; the bowlers are in good form and they can combine well to try and stun the Bellary batting line-up in order to make a comeback here.

Our Prediction

Both teams have the talent to put up an even contest and the match could swing either way; however, we feel that Shivamogga has a slightly more experienced squad that could give them the upper hand in emerging victorious on Saturday
