The Tigers had the Kings seven wickets down in Match 2 but were able to take one additional wicket against the Giants in their last match. Zimbabwe’s Chris Mpofu has four wickets with Sri Lanka’s Mutiah Muralitharan taking three wickets.
The performances have not been terrible but it is results which matter in a short league like this. Manipal Tigers are still searching for their first win of the tournament.

The Kings bowlers have outperformed the Kings batters in the 2022 Legends League. Former West Indies pace bowler Fidel Edwards took 4-30 against Manipal Tigers in Match 2 before Yusuf Pathan took 3-28 from his four overs in the heavy defeat to India Capitals.
With only one narrow victory to their name so far, the Kings are struggling to find their top form.
The match will be played at the Barabati Stadium, Cussack. This is the first match of the tournament to be played at this venue which typically favours the pace bowlers.
