The 14th match of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Belagavi Panthers and Bengaluru Blasters at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The match starts at 3:00 PM local time (IST) (9:30 AM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
Belagavi Panthers would have breathed a sigh a relief after registering their first win of the tournament. In their last game, they defeated the Bengaluru Blasters quite comprehensively. With this victory, they have also improved their NRR drastically and have kept themselves alive in the tournament. There are two more games left for them in the league stages of KPL 2019 and this is their best chance to make a mark.
The Panthers will be up against the Shivamogga Lions in their upcoming encounter. The team lost its first game of the season in the previous match against the Bellary Tuskers. That might have dented their confidence slightly and they will be eager to make a comeback. Compared to some of the other teams, the Lions are in a much better position to make it into the playoffs.
The rains seem to continue in Bengaluru during this week as well. On Sunday, however, the weather is good enough for a game of cricket. While the chances of precipitation are about 48 per cent at 3 PM, it decreases significantly during the evening and we should get a full game of cricket.
The Chinnaswamy track has behaved quite differently on different instances this season. It isn’t a typically high-scoring track at all times. Analysing the conditions quickly will be the key.
Average first innings score: 148 (Last four full 20-over games in KPL 2019)
