There were changes of personnel and a re-assignment of roles for the Mystics after their heavy defeat to Bengaluru Blasters. Bangalore Mohith took the wicket-keeping gloves from Kruthik Krishna and Codanda Ajit Karthik moved down from his role at the top of the order to batting at number eight.
Gulbarga Mystics were well beaten by Bengaluru Blasters by 54 runs in their tournament debut, but showed plenty of character to get over the line against Shivamogga Strikers.
