PITCH AND CONDITIONS
After more isolated thunderstorms earlier in the day, the evening should instead just be cloudy with a low chance of rain and temperatures no higher than 26 degrees Celsius.
Mysore has been a batsman’s wicket in this year’s tournament. Scores in advance of 200 have not been uncommon and anything less than 190 will give the chasing side some hope.
- With Manish Pandey captaining the India A team against South Africa A, Belagavi have a batting slot to fill. Arshdeep Singh has been tried there, while it was S Rakishith last time out.
- Neither has caught the eye yet, however, so there is plenty to ponder for the Panthers.
- Belagavi Panthers won their last three group stage matches but missed Manish Pandey in their first qualifier.
- Having warmed up for the play-offs with a seven-wicket win against Bijapur Bulls, they fell short against the Bellary Tuskers.
- Set 202 to win, Abhinav Manohar hit 62* but it was largely alone cause as the Panthers finished well short on 164/7.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF Belagavi Panthers
Ravikumar Samarth, Stalin Hoover, Arshdeep Singh, Kaunain Abbas (c, wk), Abihnav Manohar, Dikshansu Negi, Shubhang Hegde, MB Darshan, Rithesh Bhatkal, D Avinash, Zahoor Farooqi
- Shreyas Gopal’s late arrival has given the Tigers a timely boost. With KB Pawan back in the time – and batting well last time out – the Tigers were unchanged for their eliminator win against Shivamogga Lions and are likely to stick with the same XI again.
- Hubli Tigers go into this game on the back of four wins in their last five games of Karnataka Premier League.
- They booked their play-off place with a seven-wicket win against Bengaluru Blasters – Vinay Kumar navigating the chase of 159 to win with ease.
- They then earned a place in this fixture with a big win against Shivamogga Lions. Vinay Kumar and KB Pawan both hit half-centuries in a total of 190/5, before Mitrakanth Yadav and Abhilash Shetty each took three wickets to restrict the Lions to 170.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF Hubli Tigers
Mohammed Taha, Luvnith Sisodia, Vinay Kumar, KB Pawan, Krishnan Shrijith, Shreyas Gopal, Praveen Dubey, Aditya Somanna, David Mathias, Mitrakanth Yadav, Abhilash Shetty
