As of today, the top teams in the Karnataka Premier League Tournament are Mysuru Warriors and Hubli Tigers - both two wins from two matches played. Good going. Then comes Namma Shivamogga with one win and one abandoned match from two matches. Their run rate is fab too. That will matter, especially to them as they are one of the rain-affected parties.
Today’s match is between Belagavi Panthers and Bengaluru Blasters. Home pitch for one of the teams. That will always make the difference to the home team. Mind games are just as vital as the cricketing strategies, if you ask me.
Both teams are yet to bring points to the board. They both want to move up the table. This will be a good match.

M VishwanathV Koushik and Abhishek Bhat have good scores going in their favour. Keep the captains of the team of course.
The other match today is between Hubli Tigers and Namma Shivamogga. Though the Shivamoggas are one point less than the Tigers, their run rate is much better - +1.4 as opposed to +0.5180. Like I said earlier, this will matter.

Abhishek Sakuja / Liyan Khan
Manager was the man of the match of the last match he played and brought his team to the finishing line. Liyan Khan hit a half century. You can add him. Ashraf took three wickets. Him too.Indu
