KPL2019 follows the playoff format from this year where the top two teams get two chances to qualify for the finals. Shivamogga Lions and Bellary Tuskers are having a good tournament so far and are in top two positions currently. A win in this match would qualify them for the playoffs and almost seal a top-two finish.
Shivamogga Lions have won all their three matches played so far and are yet to be defeated. Their batting unit has come up with impressive performances in the all the three matches played so far. They chased down the target of 107 runs in just 10 overs the last match. Nihal Ullal and Pawan Deshpande lead the batting charts and have scored fifties already to lead their team to victories.

Their top order of Devdutt Bhatkal, Abhishek Reddy, and Karthik CA have done the bulk of scoring so far.

Last two matches played were low scoring affairs and teams failed to breach the 120-run mark in all the four innings. The rain made its appearance in both the matches played yesterday. We expect scattered thunderstorms on the match day and VJD equation to play a role in match result.
Three out of last 4 matches have been won by teams batting second and we hope the trend to continue in this match too. Rain interruption may further tilt the match in the favor of chasing team.
Both teams have a strong bowling line-up with a lot of different bowlers standing up at different points. Bellary tuskers have a slightly stronger batting lien-up than Shivamogga Lions on paper. This match is a clash between the top two teams of KPL 2019 till now and promises to be cracking contest too.
We predict Bellary Tuskers to win this game!
