Cricket Match Preview:
An all-rounder is a crucial member of any team. They are expected to turn things around for their team when the going gets tough or are expected to provide an extra impetus when the things are going well. Krishnappa Gowtham is one such all-rounder playing for Bellary Tuskers. After winning a few cricket games for Rajasthan Royals, he has now won the game in the dreamiest manner for any all-rounder.
Mysuru Warriors have won the tournament in 2014/15 edition, whereas Tuskers won the tournament in 2016/17 season. While Warriors have reached the semi-finals on two occasions apart from winning the tournament, Tuskers have not managed to even reach the playoff once apart from winning the tournament.
Warriors have lost two out of their four cricket games of the season and seem to have missed the bus already this year as they now have only two games of cricket left and even if they end up winning all these games, it might still not be enough. A minimum of four wins seem to be required by the teams to reach the playoff spot hence, it is already looking tough for them.
Tuskers have won four games out of their five cricket games so far in the tournament. They have sealed the playoff spot with two cricket games remaining. Now they will be looking to finish within the top two spot hence, they will have the motivation to win their last two cricket games as well. In their last cricket game, they hammered 203 runs in 17 overs against Shimoga Lions.
That score was made possible by the herculean performance with the bat from Gowtham as he scored 134 runs off just 56 balls, hammering 13 sixes and seven boundaries in the process. Then in the defense, he picked up eight wickets to bowl out Lions for just 133 runs. To do either of those stuff would have been sensational for any player but to score a hundred and then pick up 8-for is the stuff of legends. This kind of performance not only put players into limelight but also make the leagues popular across the country as well. Tuskers will be hoping for many more such performances from him.
