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.
