About the Match

After a streak of losses, Bijapur Bulls made a comeback with 2 consecutive wins recently and they are currently placed 5th with 4 points; they will take on Bengaluru Blasters, who are yet to open their points tally, and are at the very bottom of the table on 15th September at Hubli to play the 16th match of the league. The Bulls conquered Hubli Tigers and Bellary Tuskers in recent outings and will be motivated to continue with their winning momentum. Bengaluru Blasters have had a disappointing run so far and will look forward to putting up a better show on Friday.

Bijapur Bulls

Chasing 160 runs against Hubli Tigers, opening batsman Mohammad Taha posted a brilliant 83 off just 45 deliveries to steer the team across the finish line. Others like Nidish and Kiran contributed well and they won the match by 4 wickets. Earlier, medium-pacers Naveen and Ronit More took 2 wickets each to stun the opponents while spinners Cariappa and Prithvi Shekawat dismissed one opponent each to restrict the Tigers to 159. Abhimanyu Mithun, who is in good form, also took one wicket and adds depth to the attack. Against Bellary Tuskers, Abhimanyu Mithun and Naveen did well to take 2 wickets apiece while spinner Dikshanshu Negi dismissed one opponent to restrict them to 172. Captain Bharat Chipli then led from the front, scoring 63 off 35 to take them to a 4-wicket victory. Nidish M and Abhimanyu then chipped in with 30+ runs each and they can help the team keep the scoreboard ticking again here. They lost the first two games but have done well to make a comeback; with good resources with bat and ball, the Bulls can surely prove to be a tough nut to crack on Friday.

Bengaluru Blasters

They could muster only 142 runs batting first against Shivamogga; Pavan Deshpande top-scored with 47 off 36 while Manjesh Reddy and Rajoo Bhatkal contributed with 37 and 28 runs respectively. However, others like Samarth and Vishwanathan fell very quick and couldn’t forge any strong partnerships. Later, bowlers Abhishek Bhat, who had been terrific with his medium-pace in earlier matches, Prasidh Krishna, Mitrakanth Yadav and Abdul Khader took a wicket each but couldn’t stop the opponents from scoring the winning runs. Against Belagavi Panthers too, they lost the match by 23 runs, failing to chase down 193; opener Vishwanathan did well to post 65 off 35 while Shishir Bhavane contributed with 34 runs. Later, all-rounder bowler Abhishek Bhat pitched in with a well-made 24 off 15 but with hardly any support from the middle-order, they failed to reach the target. Prasidh Krishna and Abhishek Bhat had taken 2 wickets each in the first innings but others like Bhakal and Deshpande gave away too many runs. They have a good mix of young talent with bat and ball but haven’t yet been able to use it strategically to win a game. They will need to pull up their socks and come out all guns blazing with the bat if they want to keep their hopes alive.

Our Prediction

Bengaluru Blasters are struggling right now even though they have done with the ball; if the top-order clicks whether batting first or while chasing, then they stand a fighting chance. However, we feel that Bijapur Bulls, who are flying high with two back to back wins, are clear favorites to win here.
