SL vs BIJ Dream11 Team Prediction of KPL 2018: Preview

Hello and Welcome to our preview for Bijapur Bulls vs Shivamogga Lions match. We are covering SL vs BIJ Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the  KPL T20 match. The match is to be played at S.N. Raja Wadiyar Ground, Mysore.

Bijapur Bulls are fourth on points table with two wins and one loss yet in the series. They won their last match by 2 runs. BIJ is already qualified for semi finals. B Chipli played a brilliant knock and was well supported by M Abbas. Suneel Raju also played a good cameo in death overs. In Bowling, KC Cariappa once again proved his worth taking two wickets at an economy below 6. They will hope to win tomorrow’s match and qualify for semi-finals.

Shivamogga Lions have not won a single encounter this season and are in very poor form. They have lost four matches and are out of race for semi-final. In last match, N Ullal and A Joshi were the only positives with bat while A Mithun was the only bowler able to put a good performance for his team. They will hope to end this year’s tournament on a good note by putting a good show in last two matches.
