A must-win contest for both the sides
The presence of Manish Pandey is proving to be too good for Belagavi Panthers, as they won back to back matches by chasing the targets with ease. Now they are a win away from securing a spot in Playoffs, but a loss here will make them wait for others’ results to go in their favour. On the other hand, Bijapur Bulls which are placed at the bottom of the table need to win the remaining two matches in order to secure a place in the Playoffs. So the contest on Monday, between Belagavi Panthers and Bijapur Bulls is a must-win one for both sides.
Both sides are likely to stick with the same playing XI as the last match.
The surface in Mysore has produced high scoring games in the two matches played so far in the tournament. So expect another high scoring contest on Monday. The forecast is clear for the match with the presence of few periodic clouds.
He is yet to be dismissed in the season so far. He has scored 213 runs in the 3 innings which includes a century and a couple of half-centuries. His presence seems to have turned the table for Panthers who won two out of last three games played. His unbeaten run streak makes him a must-have in today’s match for Dream11 fantasy cricket players.
Apart from the last match where he got out pretty early, he has been the most consistent player for Bijapur Bulls in the first 3 games of the season. He has scored 181 runs in the 4 matches played so far, and out of those four he has crossed 30+ score thrice.
Alongside Chipli, he has proved to be good fuel for Bijapur Bulls. He has been part of crucial partnerships with Chipli irrespective of how the results have gone. He has scored two 50+ scores in the four matches played so far which makes him a worthy pick in the Dream11 cricket team for today’s match.
Until the last match, he has performed moderately in the season where he chipped in with just a few wickets. But in the last match, he came up with a match-defining century which helped Panthers to chase the target down with ease. The very quality to change the game from nowhere makes him a big bet player to consider for today’s match.
