India Capitals are favorites to win
India Capitals will take on Bhilwara Kings at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. Match 6 of the 2022 Legends Cricket League begins at 19:30 local time on Saturday 24th September.
The Capitals are in second place in the 2022 Legends League Cricket with one win and one defeat from their opening two games. They lost to Gujarat Giants by three wickets in their opening game but responded with a 78 run win over Bhilwara Kings in Match 4.
33 year old opener, Zimbabwean Solomon Mire, top scored and took the Player of the Match Award with 82 runs from 38 balls against the Kings on Wednesday. He shared in a 125 run partnership with fellow Zimbabwean, Hamilton Masakadza, for the second wicket and both batters will be relishing the opportunity to face the same bowling attack.
Australia’s Mitchell Johnson was the only bowler of the eight used by India Capitals to go wicketless in the win over Bhilwara Kings. His two overs cost 18 runs with his figures far worse than Pankaj Singh’ 2-17 and Pravin Tambe’s 2-24 from four overs.
The Capitals are looking to make it successive wins in the tournament if they can register another victory over Bhilwara Kings here.
The Kings got off to a winning start in the tournament, beating Manipal Tigers by three wickets in a close finish, but were then well beaten by India Capitals by 78 runs on Wednesday. The Kings will need an improved display with both bat and ball if they are to be competitive in this match.
Opener Naman Ojha and lower-middle order batter Tanmay Srivastava were the only two players for Bhilwara Kings to make scores of 20+ in the heavy defeat to India Capitals. Yusuf Pathan and skipper Irfan Pathan were the only two batters to hit sixes in the team total of 120 all out.
Yusuf Pathan took 3-28 with his off-spin in Match 4 and pace bowlers, Tino Best and Tim Bresnan, both chipped in with a wicket each in the same game. Bresnan also took 3-21 in the Special Match between World Giants and India Maharajas on September 16th.
The margin of defeat against India Capitals will be a worry for the Bhilwara Kings. However, a win in this match will make it two victories from three.
The match will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The ball comes onto the bat at a good pace on this wicket and encourages stroke makers to play attacking shots.
