Mangalore United are favorites to win
Mangalore United and Bengaluru Blasters go head to head in Match 15 of the 2022 Maharaja T20 Trophy on Monday afternoon in Mysore. United currently top the table with eight points after winning four of their five games in the competition. The Blasters are two points and one place behind in the table after playing the same number of matches. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway in Mysore at 15:00 local time.
Mangalore United were dominant in their opening three games but then lost one match and only got over the line with some late big hitting on Sunday. They are slightly fragile but have a solid winning mentality.
The Blasters would have come into this game as the league leaders if they had not lost their last match. However, they have already beaten Mangalore United this season and that could count for a lot in this game.
TV channels: This match will be shown live on the Star Network.
Maharaja Trophy 2022 Live Streaming: Fans can stream the match on FanCode.
Mangalore United won the toss and chose to field first the last time they met and even though they were on the receiving end of the result, we predict that they and Bengaluru Blasters will want to bowl first again.
The mid-afternoon games are consistently delivering more wickets in Mysore. Medium pacers are starting to go for more runs but are also picking up more than their fair share of dismissals.
Sunny spells with some cloud cover and a high of 28 degrees in Mysore for this game. Very little chance of rain and a slight breeze throughout.

United made one change to their side after the defeat to Bangalore Blasters on Thursday. Rohit Kumar, who dismissed Mayank Agarwal and finished with 1-26 from two overs, was left out in favour of Shashi Kumar. Shashi was more economical and we expect him to keep his spot for this fixture.
United could very easily have lost Sunday’s game against Gulbarga Mystics but they showed a huge amount of grit and determination to return to winning ways after only one defeat.

After their nine wicket thrashing of Shivamogga Strikers in Match 12, the Blasters made one change ahead of the clash with Mysore Warriors. Out went 20 year old left-arm spinner Paras Arya with experienced medium-pacer Ronit More returning to the side.
The Blasters have won two of their last four games and missed out on the chance to win three in a row with their defeat to Mysore Warriors.

Although the league table has Mangalore United leading the way, the bookies are predicting Bengaluru Blasters to win this game and do the double over them. However, we face United to get revenge and win this match.
A top of the table clash is always a mouth watering prospect in any sport and this is no different. If Mangalore United win the game then they will go four points clear at the top whereas Bengaluru Blasters will regain the lead if they emerge with the victory on Monday afternoon. Mayank Agarwal will be keen to lead his side to a second win over Mangalore within a week but he will need to strike-up some useful partnerships if he is to do so. We are predicting a close match with Mangalore United getting the victory.
Mangalore United are favorites to beat Bengaluru Blasters at the odds of 2.10
