BP vs BIJ Dream11 Match Prediction | Belagavi Panthers vs Bijapur Bulls | Karnataka Premier League

BP vs BIJ Karnataka T20| BP vs BIJ KPL 2018

Hubli, 21 August at 6:30 PM IST

After losing their opening games of the Karnataka Premier League 2018, Belagavi Panthers and Bijapur Bulls faceoff at KSCA Hubli Cricket Ground to get their campaign up and running.

Bijapur Bulls went down in their first fixture against Hubli Tigers on Thursday (August 16) although the margin of defeat was not substantial. However, they would want their batting to put up a better performance here to come on top of their counterparts for the match.

On the other hand, Belagavi Panthers were crushed by Robin Uthappa’s Bengaluru Blasters in the tournament opener. Having bowled poorly in the first match, the Panthers would want to bowl with better control here.

The first game at KSCA Hubli Cricket Ground (Hubli Tigers vs Shivamogga Lions on August 19) was a low-scoring game. This could be another affair where bowlers can dominate.

Last competitive T20 result at the venue: Hubli Tigers 160/7 beat Shivamogga Lions 135/9 – Karnataka Premier League, 2018
