Mysore Warriors are favorites to win
Match 2 of the 2022 Maharaja Trophy sees Mysore Warriors and Shivamogga Strikers face off at the Srikantadatta Narasimha Raja Wadeyar Ground on Sunday evening. Both teams finished in mid-table with six points in the 2019 Karnataka Premier League. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in Mysore at 19:00 local time.
The Warriors will be delighted with their line-up and the management clearly fancy their chances ahead of the 2022 tournament. With a strong batting unit, they will be very hard to stop.
Shivamogga Strikers are coached by Nikhil Haldipur who will work to ensure the batters make the most of their ability in the competition. This will be one of their tougher matches of the campaign.

Neither captain will want his team to be in the field during the highest humidity levels. As a result, we predict that both skippers will want to field first.
With potential thunderstorms around earlier in the day and humidity in the evening, expect the pitch to have absorbed some moisture before this game. This should be exploited by the quicker bowlers.
Cloudy and very humid as the game progresses in Mysore. The temperature will be in the low twenties with the humidity levels touching 90% by the end of the match.

There are no injury worries or illnesses in the Warriors squad and we expect them to put out their strongest XI in this game. Karun Nair will be captain and with 56 year old PV Shashikath coaching the side, expect no stone to be unturned ahead of this match.
The Warriors did win their last two games in the 2019 edition of the Karnataka Premier League but this is a completely different set of players now taking the field.
Karun Nair (c), Shreyas Gopal, Shubhang Hegde, Pavan Deshpande, Vidhyadhar Patil, Ullal, Prateek Jain, Lochan Appanna, Chiranjeevi, Naga Bharath, Monish Reddy
The strikers have recruited a group of players who have two or in some cases three strings to their bow. This may mean they lack a certain level of quality at times, but they will always have options in the field. They have a fully fit squad to select from ahead of this match.
Shivamogga Strikers ended their last T20 tournament in very poor form with four successive defeats. However, they have assembled a strong looking group of players.
K Gowtham (c), KC Cariappa, Sharath BR (wk), Rohan Kadam. KV Siddhartha, Darshan MB, Stalin Hoover, Avinash D, Smaran R, Sharath BR, Ranvir Wadhwa
Shivamogga Strikers beat Mysore Warriors by four runs when they met in the 2019 Karnataka Premier League. HS Sharath took the Player of The Match Award with figures of 3-36.

A humid Sunday evening should make for an interesting backdrop for Match 2 of the tournament. Expect there to be plenty of lateral movement for the pace bowlers and the batters to have to work hard for their runs. We are predicting a close match with Mysore Warriors getting the win.
