Bellary Tuskers

Following a mediocre season with Shivamogga 2 years back, KP Appanna went to Bijapur Bulls and he picked up 11 wickets in KPL 2018 ending as the second leading wicket taker of the season. Now, he has been picked up by Bellary Tuskers and this slow left-arm orthodox player will be the first on my team sheet for this BT vs BP game in KPL 2019.

Prasidh Krishna now has IPL experience thanks to fantastic domestic outings in the years before that. The pacer didn’t have the best of luck at IPL 2019 where he managed only 4 wickets in 11 games but we’re expecting much more from him in KPL 2019. Similarly, we have Krishnappa Gowtham in the squad and he’s a must pick as he was a vital cog in the RR set-up in IPL 2019 due to his abilities with both bat and ball.

Belagavi Panthers

With 2 fifties and 134 runs in 5 games in KPL 2018, Dikshanshu Negi is among my first Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy picks for today’s game. Remember, his tally of 134 runs came even though he had 2 ducks in 5 innings. Once again, Manish Pandey returns from an India senior team camp without getting to prove himself. However, he is KING at KPL and we can expect plenty of runs from his bat.

Shubhang Hegde is only 18 years old but he’s come off a string of 10+ matches for IND U-19s where he has been constantly in the action, with bat and ball. We’re talking about a best of 69 with the bat and a bowling best of 3/59 in his last 10 games and he could be a big asset to the Panthers. The team will be led by Mir Kaunain Abbas in KPL 2019.
