KPL 2019 - Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Bengaluru Blasters v Mysuru Warriors
The tournament opener of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Bengaluru Blasters and Mysuru Warriors at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
This match will be a repeat of the KPL 2018 first semi-final played in Mysore when Bengaluru Blasters beat Mysuru Warriors by 20 runs on the back of some sensible batting from Manoj Bhandage and brilliant bowling from Doddamani Anand.
Unanticipated before the start of the last season, Bengaluru Blasters ended at the top of the points table after the end of the league stage with five wins from six matches. They did not lose a single game but one of the matches was rained off.
Mysuru Warriors just made it to the semi-finals with three wins and three losses from six games after the league stage.
Bengaluru Blasters ended as the runners-up in KPL 2018, losing to Bijapur Bulls by seven wickets but they came a long way from their last year's campaign in which they were not able to win even a single match.
Mysuru Warriors qualified for the first semi-final but could not get the better of the Blasters.
Bengaluru Blasters opener Rohan Kadam is coming off a great Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy performance, scoring 536 from 12 innings and would be key for the Blasters. V Koushik and Doddamani Anand would be their leading bowlers.
Amit Verma and all-rounder Aniruddha Joshi would form the core of Mysuru Warriors, while skipper Jagadeesha Suchith will lead their bowling attack.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Bengaluru Blasters- BR Sharath (wk), Rohan Kadam, Jonathan Rongsen (c), Nishant Singh, Naga Bharath, Aditya Goyal, Manoj Bhandage, Kishore Kamath, Anil IG, V Koushik, Doddamani Anand
