BWAK vs GRTG Team Previews
The Bhilwara Kings were off to a positive start as they defeated the incumbent champions, the India Capitals, in a high-scoring match.
Opting to bowl first, Anureet Singh struck early as he removed the dangerous Hashim Amla in the 3rd over. However, the Kings were unable to capitalize on the good start as they let the Capitals score easy runs. Anureet Singh was the pick of the bowlers, with 4 wickets.
However, the likes of Rahul Sharma, Tim Murtagh, Irfan Pathan, and Iqbal Abdulla were very expensive. The chase was off to a shaky start as Bhilwara lost Tillakaratne Dilshan and Lendl Simmons in quick succession. However, Solomon Mire held on to one end as he scored 70 runs.
He put up valuable partnerships with Yusuf Pathan and Robin Bist. A late assault by Irfan Pathan, who scored a sensational 65 off just 19 deliveries ensured that the Kings avenged their loss in the finals of the previous season. Bhilwara will look to iron out the bowling issues before the start of the next game.
Bhilwara Kings Playing 11
Tillakaratne Dilshan, Solomon Mire, Robin Bist, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Pinal Shah, Jesal Karia, Chris Barnwell, Rahul Sharma, Anureet Singh, Ryan Sidebottom, Lendl Simmons.
The Giants will be disappointed with the outcome of their opening fixture as they faced a 10-run defeat at the hands of Manipal Tigers.
Rayad Emrit and Trent Johnston are likely to begin the proceedings with the new ball. The duo picked up 3 wickets between them against the Tigers but were quite expensive. They will be supported by Ishwar Chaudhary as the first change. The spin attack consists of Suleiman Benn, Rajat Bhatia, and Sarabjit Ladda. Bhatia was particularly impressive on Monday as he picked up 3 wickets for 31 runs.
Chris Gayle and Jacques Kallis gave the team a brisk start during the chase, putting up 75 runs in just 6 overs. However, the middle order failed to build up on that and the team ultimately fell short of the target. There are some big names playing for the Giants including Kevin O’Brien, Richard Levi, and Parthiv Patel.
The team will need at least one of them to play a big inning in this match.
