Match Details:

The 4th match of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Mysuru Warriors and Shivamogga Lions at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

The match starts at 3:00 PM local time (IST) (11:30 AM GMT).


Preview

It is still early days in the Karnataka Premier League (KPL) 2019 and teams are putting their best foot forward to get off to a positive start in the tournament. The Mysuru Warriors, who featured in the first game of the tournament against the Bengaluru Blasters, had to share the points as that game was abandoned due to rain. Now, the team will be back in action for their second game of the tournament against the Shivamogga Lions.

The Lions have registered a great win against the Hubli Tigers on Saturday itself and will be back on the field within a day’s gap. However, the win in the previous encounter should keep them in good spirits. After losing all the six games last season, this must-have come as a huge sigh of relief.  The Lions would definitely be hungry to get more victories under their belt.


Weather Report

Bengaluru has witnessed a lot of rain in different parts of the city in the last few days. On Sunday as well, scattered thunderstorms are predicted. While these two teams will have their fingers-crossed, the chances of rain only increase as the evening progresses.
