SKS vs KC Today Match Prediction
Day 2 in the Japan Premier League will see new entrants Kansai Chargers locking horns with three-time champions South Kanto Super Kings. It will be the third game on Day 2, and the second of the day for both sides. While South Kanto Super Kings are already off and running with a win against the East Kanto Sunrisers on Day 1, Kansai Chargers will start their campaign on Day 2. Kansai Chargers are contesting the tournament for the very first time and are expected to add a fresh challenge to the four teams from Kanto. South Kanto Super Kings looked good on Day 1 and showed a lot of promise in their win against the East Kanto Sunrisers. They will face the West Kanto Hurricanes before taking on the Kansai Chargers. A win against the new entrants will be enough for the Super Kings to send out a title-challenging statement.
Date – Friday, 24 July
Kick-Off – 11:00 AM (IST)
Venue – Sano International Cricket Ground 1
The South Kanto Super Kings are the strongest side on paper and have already put their capabilities on show with a win on the first day. Boasting of a strong batting line-up, the Super Kings have added some stealth to their bowling attack as well. Along with a handful of pacers at their exposure, they will have the services of a few quality spinners as well to turn the game around.
Kansai Chargers are the underdogs of this year’s JPL. They do have a batting line up capable of whacking the ball all over the park, but they fall short when it comes to having the right bowling options. It will be difficult for them to bowl 6 good overs. If they’re to have any chances of making their first appearance in the tournament a success, they’ll have to make sure they get their bowling right.
There are no odds available for this game. However, a closer look at the teams on paper hint towards a win for the South Kanto Super Kings. Kansai Chargers will have their task cut out against a solid looking South Kanto Super Kings side. The South Kanto Super Kings have already defeated the East Kanto Sunrisers, who will be the first opponents for Kansai Chargers on Friday. Kansai Chargers' performance against the Sunrisers will give a clear indication of what is to be expected from them. On paper, the chances of Kansai Chargers winning against the Super Kings look very slim.
Sabaorish Ravichandran, captain of Super Kings and one of Japan’s prime cricketers, and Kansai Chargers' one man hope, Makoto Taniyama are a must pick for any Dream11 Match Prediction side. Sabaorish Ravichandran picked up three wickets in the first game while also getting a boundary off the two balls he managed to face. Makoto Taniyama is yet to dazzle the crowds in the tournament but is considered to be capable of doing almost everything on a cricket field.
Nikhil Chhajed and Akira Kuribayashi will be the two top names capable of changing the leadersboard of Fantasy Cricket competitions with the bat.
With the ball, all eyes will be on the main man of Kansai Chargers, Kohei Wakita. Wakita will be the key to Chargers' success in the tournament. With wickets most likely to be under his name, he certainly will have an impact on today match prediction as well.
