Naga Bharath and Prateek Jain both missed out in selection for Saturday’s victory over Bengaluru Blasters. In their place, Monish Reddy and GV Chiranjeevi came into the side. After beating the top of the table side, we expect to see the same XI for the clash against the bottom placed team.
The Warriors have won two of their last three matches but are yet to win back to back games in this campaign.
Nihal Ullal (wk), Karun Nair (c), Pavan Deshpande, S Shivaraj, Shubhang Hegde, Shreyas Gopal, Vidyadhar Patil, Monish Reddy, GV Chiranjeevi, Lochan Appanna, Aditya Goyal
The Strikers made two changes ahead of their defeat to Hubli TIgers on Saturday. MB Darshan returned to the side alongside Utham Aiyappa with S Punith and KS Devaiah dropping out. We expect the batting order to be shuffled in this match but the same personnel to be selected.
The Strikers were again handy with the bat and did make some early in-roads with the ball on Saturday. However, they are not in the habit of turning these positions into victories.
Rohan Kadam, Vinay Sagar, Stalin Hoover, Krishnamurthy Siddharth, BR Sharath (wk), Krishnappa Gowtham (c), D Avinash, Desomnd Anthony, KC Cariappa, Utham Aiyappa, MB Darshan
This is the first time that Mysore Warriors and Shivamogga Strikers will meet.
It is no surprise to see the bookies expecting a win for Mysore Warriors and a sixth successive defeat for Shivamogga Strikers.
With the Warriors knowing that a win for them in this match will see them go top of the table, there is added incentive for them to register their first back to back victory of the tournament. Shivamogga Strikers were their usual selves in Saturday’s game, they created chances and took wickets with the ball but were unable to turn them into a match winning position. Overall, we do not think the Warriors will have too many problems in this game and are backing them to win this fixture.
