Another day and it’s another double header at the 2019 Karnataka Premier League (KPL). The first game is Match 6 – Bellary Tuskers vs Hubli Tigers and both teams have played a game each so far. It was a welcome victory for Tuskers as they began their campaign by beating Belagavi Panthers by 5 runs.
However, we can’t say the same for Hubli Tigers, having conceded a loss to Shivamogga Lions, the latter being the the biggest underdogs in the competition. Tigers will look at getting their first win of KPL 2019 here. Keep reading for our Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy preview and predictions of the BT vs HT game…

- Devdutt Padikkal – 121 vs UAE U19 in September last year.
- Prasidh Krishna – 4 wickets in 11 games at IPL 2019.
- Mitrakanth Yadav – 2/26 in last game vs Shivamogga.
- H2H in last 4 completed games, Hubli Tigers leads 3-1.
Having made his debut for Karnataka in the Ranji Trophy this season, Devdutt Padikkal has played some really composed knocks, including 3 fifties in those 5 FC games and 54 in the opening game of KPL 2019, so I’ll definitely pick this 19-year old in my fantasy team for today. Opener Abhishek Reddy scored 35(33) and he’s also a worthy choice of adding toy our fantasy team.
I spoke about Krishnappa Gowtham and the loads of confidence he must be having after becoming an important part of the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2019. He picked 2/32 and scored 11(7) in the opening game and this all-rounder should at least be your vice-captain if not captain. Pacer Prasidh Krishna rose to fame from these small leagues and he picked 2/26 in the last game; pick him even though he had a fruitless IPL 2019.
Because of his all-round abilities, Praveen Dubey is one of my first Howzat (sign-up with code “READ1234”) fantasy picks for this team. He bowled three overs and went wicketless and scored 19(12) batting at #6 but I’ll pick him because of his high involvement in the game at all times.
With the bat, KB Pawan played a attacking innings which was truly a delight to watch. He had a fifty and a century for Nagaland in the Ranji Trophy which means he’s in good form as well. Captain Vinay Kumar is a default pick because of his massive experience. He went wicketless but came out and showed intent with the bat, hitting a quick 4 and 6 before being dismissed.
