The 17th match of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Mysuru Warriors and Hubli Tigers at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The match starts at 7:00 PM local time (IST) (1:30 PM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
Four games into the tournament already and the Mysuru Warriors are yet to register a win in the KPL 2019. Thus far, two of their games were washed out due to rain. In the other two matches, their batting suffered a failure leading to a disappointment. With just two games left in the tournament, they still have an outside chance of making it into the top four.
But for that, they will have to try and win their remaining two games. Hubli Tigers will be their opponent in the 17th match of the tournament. The Tigers are on the verge of consolidating a top-four spot as well. While they are placed third at the moment, they still need at least one more victory to be in a safe position. Thus, they are expected to go hard at the Warriors.
It is good news for both these teams as we might get a full, uninterrupted game of cricket. The chances of rain are quite low but the humidity will be on the higher side.
This season in the KPL, scores over 200 have been scored. At the same time, low scores were defended by the teams. With so much rain around, the track is behaving differently at different times.
Average first innings score: 148 (Last four full 20-over games in KPL 2019)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 0, Tied – 0
