BP vs MW Dream11 Team : Winless after their opening encounters, both Belagavi Panthers Vs Mysuru Warriors look to record their first win of the season
For both of Belagavi Panthers and Mysuru Warriors, the opening sojourns of their Karnataka Premier League 8 campaign were far from what the sides would have fathomed. The two were dismissed from sight in their opening fixtures, falling to chastening defeats, ones the sides will be looking to forget preceding their impending encounter against each other today.
Belagavi Panthers will be especially dejected by the way they fell apart in their defeat to Bellary Tuskers, a five run defeat which is sure to have left them ruing at what could have been. After putting in a complete bowling performance, there batsmen shambolically failed to compliment their bowling unit, losing bunches in quick succession to see their run chase be curtailed at just 138-8 as they headed out in pursuit of the Tuskers’ 143.
Elsewhere for last year’s semi-finalist, Mysuru Warriors who were playing their first complete encounter after seeing their opening clash be abandoned due to rain, the paper thin bowling setup ended up being a cause for their defeat to Shivamogga Lions. They allowed the Lions to rake up the highest total till now in the league, a 167 run target which Mysuru Warriors never looked to be on top of across the entirety of their run chase.
Dismissed for 152 to lose by 14 runs, the side will be looking to improve on both aspects of their game today when they face off against an opponent who endured the same fate as them in their opening encounter. It’s a clash which brings with the opportunity of registering the first win for either, a proposition which is bound to elevate either side’s showing in today’s closing encounter of the day.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With persistent rain lashing this ground across the last week, the ground team have not been able to carry out the requisite work needed to help soak up the water fully, seeing the pacers get massive help with the new ball. Also with this being the second encounter of the day here, batting in the second part of the clash will be a tedious task, seeing the side winning the toss opting to bat first and out on anything in excess of 150.
Probable Playing 11
- Manish Pandey has returned from West Indies after his involvement with the Indian team and could feature for Belagvi Panthers for the first time today.

Wicket-Keeper for BP vs MW Dream11
Although he holds a spot in his side’s lower middle-order, Vinay Sagar offers the possibility of coming on in the death overs and opening his arms to amass crucial runs in the closing stages for his side. He’s someone who is known for his quick hitting, a bat who can more than efficiently cream the ball to the fence, seeing the Mysuru Warriors’ wicket-keeper be our pick for this one.
Batsmen for BP vs MW Dream11
With Manish Pandey set to be included in his side for today’s contest after returning from India’s recently concluded ODI series against West Indies, one where he didn’t get to play a single match, we have picked up the player from the side. He could easily end up being the highest scorer for his side here with the number 4 batsman having scored some good runs recently against West Indies A.
With 26 in the previous encounter, we have Abhinav Manohar come in from the side as well while from Mysuru Warriors we have gone ahead with number three player, Krishnamurthy Siddarth for this one after he top scored for his side in the previous fixture.
All-Rounders for BP vs MW Dream11
With 26 runs and a wicket in the previous encounter, Aniruddha Joshi is our first pick in this department. Spin is bound to be heavily used by both the sides with the evening encounter seeing the surface massively crack up, offering immense turn to the slower bowlers, something which will see Aniruddha’s offspin deviate massively.
Elsewhere from the opposition we have brought in both D Avinash and Ritesh Bhatkal as we look to spruce things up from the side by selecting both a pacer and spinner in this department of our Dream 11 outfit.
Bowling Order for BP vs MW Dream11
With wickets bound to tumble in this fixture, not only due to the variety of the wicket but also the flailing and lack of composure both these sides showed preciously, it was only befitting for us to dole out the maximum players over here. We have gone ahead with the two bowlers from either side, getting in Shubhang Hedge from Belagavi Panthers as our first player.
Our reason for picking him out were his performances for India U19 against England U19 and Bangladesh U19 recently, a series where he came up with both good runs and wickets. While he’s bound to take wickets today, it’s his ability to provide important runs down the lower middle-order which see us opt for him.
Zahoor Farooqui comes in from the side as well after taking two wickets the last time around while the two wickets as well for him see Mysuru Warriors’ bowler, Vyshak Vijaykumar come into our side with Devaiah KS.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Krishnamurthy Siddharth is our captain for this match while Manish is the vice-captain. In the eventuality of Manish not playing today we’ll be opting for Aniruddha as our vice-captain.
