BIJ vs HT Dream11 Match Prediction | Bijapur Bulls vs Hubli Tigers | Karnataka Premier League

BIJ vs HT Karnataka T20 | BIJ vs HT KPL 2018, Semi-final 2

Srikantadatta Narasimha Raja Wadiyar Ground, Mysore, 05 September at 6:30 PM IST

In the second semi-final of the tournament, the 2015 champions Bijapur Bulls will square off with the two times finalists Hubli Tigers in a quest to clinch their second KPL title.

Both teams have been scintillating with their game in this year’s KPL which could be reflected from their positions on the points table. Hubli Tigers finished second on the ladder after decimating the reigning champions Belagavi Panthers by 44 runs in their last league game thanks to skipper Vinay Kumar’s all-round show which made their way ever so easy for a win.

Meanwhile, Bijapur Bulls had the same story as their counterparts as they too finished their last league game with a win against Shivamogga Lions by 2 wickets. No doubt it was a closely fought contest, but the last nail in the coffin was penetrated by Bijapur Bulls who achieved a target of 140 runs in the second last ball of the innings with 2 wickets to spare.

The last meeting between the two sides saw Hubli Tigers emerge victorious by a fair margin of 4 wickets which was the second game of the competition at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. With everything on the stake for both teams, the match could well turn out to be a defiant one.

Pitch Conditions: Raja Wadiyar Ground in Mysore will host the final as well and till now we have seen some really crunching games in this year’s KPL.The average score this year has been 150 which means a formidable contest with both bat and ball is expected yet again.

Fantasy Picks

Wicket-keeper:

  • Among the two wicketkeepers, we will go with Bijapur’s KL Shrijith as he gets much time to spend on the crease as compared to AM Kiran.

 

Batsmen:

  • Our fantasy picks in the batting department would be Bijapur’s skipper Bharat Chipli, Hubli’s Praveen Dube, Mohammad Taha and Abhishek Reddy. Bharat Chipli of Bijapur is the lone warrior with the bat for his side as he has scored 162 runs in 4 innings averaging 40.50.
  • Praveen Dubey and Mohammad Taha of Hubli have got 275 runs between them from 9 innings, therefore, they do hold an upper hand among the other batters.

 

All-rounders:

  • Among the all-rounders, Hubli’s skipper Vinay Kumar has been outstanding yet again on the KPL as he has scalped 6 wickets at an economy rate of 5.15 and also has amassed 112 runs from 5 innings with a strike rate of 157.75.

 

Bowlers:

  • In the bowling department, our bowling picks would be Hubli’s Mahesh Patel who has bagged 12 wickets from 5 innings with an economy of 5.75.
  • The other picks would be from Bijapur Bulls, the spin duo of KC Cariappa and KP Apanna who have bolstered each other with 12 wickets between them.

 

Our Captain and Vice-Captain Picks

We would suggest you to pick Vinay Kumar as the captain of your respective teams as he has contributed with both bat and ball in almost every game. Bharat Chipli would be our vice-captain as he has amassed 162 runs from just 4 innings and has been the backbone of Bijapur’s batting line-up.
