KPL 2019 - Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Bengaluru Blasters v Bijapur Bulls
The fifth match of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Bengaluru Blasters and Bijapur Bulls at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
This clash will bring back memories of the KPL 2018 final when Bengaluru Blasters and Bijapur Bulls went head to head against each other and the latter came out victorious.
There was a lot of build up to the opening encounter of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 as last year's runners-up Bengaluru Blasters were supposed to feature in it. However, the game could only last 13 overs after which rain came down very heavily and never relented. When it finally ceased, it was already too late and the ground was not in the condition for play to resume.
In that short period, Nikin Jose and Rohan Kadam impressed the most for Bengaluru Blasters. Although they did not have a bowl in the first match, Anand Doddamani is likely to be their best bowler.
For Bijapur Bulls, this will be their first match. The team is starting quite late and all teams will have played their first match by the time Bijapur Bulls will get a game.
The team ended at the third spot last year with three wins and three losses from six matches and went on to beat Bengaluru Blasters by seven wickets in the final.
Bharat Chipli remains their most successful batsman and will open the batting. Leg-spinner KC Cariappa and Prateek Jain will lead their bowling attack.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Bengaluru Blasters- V Koushik, Manoj Bhandage, Rongsen Jonathon, Bharath Duri, Naga Bharath, Rohan Kadam, Anand Doddamani, Sharath BR, Anil IG, Nikin Jose, Anuraj Bajpai, Bharath Devaraj, Nishanth Singh Shekhawat, Muthanna Chandrasekhar, Kishore Kamath, Kuldeep Kumar, Rishi Bopanna, Aditya Goyal
