The Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 has moved to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore for the second part of the league after having successfully organized the first in Mysore.  The first two games will see four teams clash on 17th August. The next day will also bring four teams together in what is expected to be a highly packed event. 

Let’s look at all the details of Match 21 and 22 of the Maharaja Trophy:  

Match 21: Gulbarga Mystics vs Bengaluru Blasters

In the 21st match, the fourth-placed team GMY will face the table toppers from Bangalore. BB, with four wins in their first six matches, sit at the top with eight points and a big NRR of +1.529. 

Mayank Agarwal-led side has been performing well in the batting department having scored 191, the tournament’s highest in their last match against Mangalore United. Now playing at their home ground, BB would be looking to stretch their lead further at the top of the table. 

GMY, on the other hand, have blown hot and cold throughout the tournament, winning three and losing three in the first six matches. The Manish Pandey-led side has also come good with the bat but bowling seems to be their Achilles heel throughout the competition.

Match 22: Hubli Tigers vs Mysore Warriors

The fifth-placed Hubli Tigers will face third-place Mysore Warriors in the second match on August 18th in the Maharaja Trophy. Both have similar wins and losses in the six games they’ve played so far with only the NRR coming in as the decider. 

Hubli Tigers defeated GMY in their last match by five wickets on the back of great batting by Luvnith Sisodia (96). They have struggled to defend their score due to poor bowling in some matches and would need to improve on that front. 

Mysore warriors defeated the table toppers Bengaluru in the last match on the back of great bowling. The Karun Nair-led team would need to perform better with the bat as they have failed to breach the 165-run mark in six matches so far.
