Bangalore pitch has a good balance between the bat and ball and teams had scored runs in the range of 140-160 runs in the previous matches. Bengaluru is experiencing monsoon rains and we will have to keep our fingers crossed for rain interruption as teams will look out for DLS method predictor.
Chasing teams have better win percentage at this venue and DL method further tilts the match in the chasing teams favor.
Both teams had almost similar start to the season with losses in their respective encounters. Both teams have a fragile batting line-up that failed to perform this season so far. Mysuru Warriors have a slightly better all-round team when compared to Belagavi panthers on paper. So, we expect Mysuru Warriors to win this match.
