|Bengaluru Blasters vs Shivamogga Strikers, Match 20th Maharaja Trophy|
|Date||17th August 2022|
|Time||7:00 PM IST, 1:30 PM GMT, 7:00 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru|
Bengaluru Blasters have been the best team of the tournament so far. They are placed at the helm of the points table with four wins in six matches. In the last game, they defeated Mangalore United by 66 runs. Batting first, the Blasters made 191-4 before bowling out the opposition for 125.
Meanwhile, Shivamogga Strikers are placed at the opposite end of the points table. They have just a win to show in the six games they have played. However, the win has come in the last game, against Mangalore United, and the team will be keen on picking some momentum and winning the coming game as well.
This will be the second game in Bengaluru of the tournament. While the wicket in Chinnaswamy is a good one to bat, it helps the spinners in the second inning. We may see the average score coming down for the matches in Bengaluru.
The weather will be clear and rain is unlikely to affect the game. The temperature will range between 30 to 19 degrees. The humidity will be 63 per cent, but it’s an evening game so the weather will be quite pleasing.

Mayank Agarwal has been in staggering form in the tournament. He is the highest run scorer of the tournament so far with 296 runs in 6 games. He will make it to almost every fantasy team.
Aneesh has also made some vital contributions to the team’s success. So far, he has scored 188 runs in 6 games and given his form, he makes it to the team as well.
He has been one of the few bright spots in a rather miserable season for Sivamogga Strikers. He has scored 223 runs in six games at an average of 37. Shivamogga will need him to continue his form if they are to win back-to-back games.
Gowtham is a renowned all-rounder. While he is known more for his bowling, he can, time and again, surprise a team with a good knock. He picked up 2 wickets for 22 runs in the last game. He will enjoy the conditions in Chinnaswamy.
He has been a good performer for Bengaluru in the tournament. He is the second highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets in six games. He is a good pick for the team as he has plenty of variations up his sleeves and can deceive even a set batter.
