The Shivamogga Lions are still looking for their first win and the Belagavi Panthers have not done too much better either. The Panthers have one win from their three matches and need another one here to get some momentum into their campaign.
Both of these teams have a massive room left for improvement so far. Which one will prevail in this clash?
A washout, a loss, and a convincing win their last match have left the Belagavi Panthers in the middle of the Karnataka Premier League table. They will now be very keen to register a win against the Shivamogga Lions and keep a struggling team down.
The standout performer for the team so far has been Stuart Binny. He has five wickets to his name, more than anyone else, and has been very effective with the ball. His economy rate of 8.00 is also the third best for the bowlers in his side so far.
Binny has received support from Nisar, Avinash, and Hegde but without him performing, the Panthers bowling attack will struggle. Among the batsmen, Sharath, Hoover, Binny, and Avinash form a pretty useful lineup at this level of the game.
They have power to fall back on and proven domestic performances to gain experience from.
The Panthers have a strong unit on paper and can be pretty difficult to beat of their batting gets in shape.
BR Sharath, Nihal Ullal, Liyan Khan, Rongsen Jonathan, Anirudha Joshi, Aditya Somanna, Abhimanyu Mithun, Prithviraj Shekawat, K Kamath, Abhilash Shetty, Bharath Dhuri.
The Shivamogga Lions are going through a horror time in the KPL and they need to start winning now if they want to have any hope of reaching the knockouts. There is very little to cheer for the team up until now.
No player has hit a fifty so far and there has been only one instance where a bowler has taken three wickets or more in an inning. This indicates that none of the team’s players are being able to perform their allotted duties.
Somanna is the one player that has shown some talent in both the batting and the bowling. If he is in form then he could lend some balance to the side. Jonathan has been clearing the boundaries with some regularity and has five sixes to his name, more than any other player, and is easily the highest scorer in the side.
If a couple of bowlers can begin to support Shekhawat, Joshi, and Somanna then the team could spring a few surprises.
STR Binny, Stalin Hoover, Dikshanshu Negi, M Nidish, S Rakshith, D Avinash, HS Sharath, Akshay Ballal, S Prashanth, Shubang Hegde, Mohammed Niyaz Nisar.
The team winning the toss is likely to field first
A lot of rain has been predicted for this match and we are almost certain of having a truncated game. The possibility of a washout is also pretty high. If, however, the rain gods relent then the pitch will provide assistance to the spinners, be low, slow and difficult to score on, and have nothing in it for the fast bowlers.
A score of around 150 should be seen as par.
Back Belagavi Panthers to win.
