Bijapur Bulls: The Bulls could only manage a tie in a rain-plagued game against the Bengaluru Blasters.
Apart from captain Bharath Chipli and Swapnil Yelave no other batsman looked in decent touch in the last game, and that will have to change against a strong Tuskers bowling lineup.
The Bowlers did an excellent job in earning their team a draw defending 29 runs in 5 overs.

Devdutt Paddikal: The 19-year-old was very impressive in his last outing scoring a stylish 44 ball 53.
Krishnappa Gowtham: With some serious IPL Pedigree, he is must-have in your team. He can change the course of any game equally with the bat and the ball.
Bharath Chipli: Another player with IPL Pedigree, Chipli looked in good touch in the previous game scoring a brisk 39 with the help of six fours and a six.
