When and where:
Bengaluru Blasters will take on Bijapur Bulls in the penultimate game of the Karnataka Premier League, 2018, on (September 6) at Srikandtadatta Narasimha Raja Wadiyar Ground, Mysore.
Bengaluru Blasters have been the best team in the league by a mile this season. In the six games they played before the semi-final they won five of those, and the other one was an NR. This is the only team that hasn’t lost a game and look absolutely on fire. It will be hard to dispose of this team from the winning column, or a mammoth effort from their opponents.
However, Bijapur Bulls have come into their own, recently. They dismantled the Hubli Tigers in the semi-finals with a commendable batting performance. In any tournament, it is the team that has consistently improved the most that take the title back home, and if those facts are looked at objectively, Bijapur Bulls are the team that fall into this category.
Regardless of who wins, we expect to see a stellar spectacle of cricketing ability from both the sides, and a worthy winner will be crowned as the new champions of Karnataka Premier League.
The match will begin at 6:30 PM IST.

BIJ vs BB Players to watch out for:
For Bengaluru Blasters their captain Robin Uthappa will be looking at batting all-rounders Manoj S Bhandage amd Shreyas Gopal to give this team solidity in the middle overs. Bhandage scored 35 runs in 15 balls in the last game to take his team past the 130 run mark on a difficult pitch whereas Shreyas Gopal’s economic spell of 3 overs was gold-dust for the side as he gave away only 13 runs and took three wickets.
For Bijapur Bulls, skipper Bharath Chipli has the likes of Naveen MG and KP Appanna to rely on. Naveen and Bharath made a mockery of the total they were made to chase in the last game as the opening duo bludgeoned the opposition bowling. KP Appanna also did really well in his quota of four overs where he took two wickets at a run-rate of 7.
