GJG vs BHK T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Legends League Cricket 2022
Gujarat Giants will take on Bhilwara Kings at the Barabati Stadium, Cussack. Match 9 of the 2022 Legends Cricket League begins at 19:30 local time on Tuesday 27th September.
The Giants won their opening two games of the tournament but since then have been beaten by India Capitals and got a no-result against Manipal Tigers without a ball bowled. They come into this game level on points with India Capitals at the top of the table.
In the defeat to India Capitals in the day-night fixture on Sunday, the top order pair of Kevin O’Brien and Tillakaratne Dilshan got the Giants off to an excellent start. Although O’Brien fell for 23 runs from 13 balls, Dilshan went on to finish 75 not out from 59 balls.
Graeme Swann and KP Appanna both took a wicket against India Capitals but it was Ajantha Mendis who was the most impressive, finishing with figures of 2-26. The opening duo of Joginder Sharma and Rayad Emrit both struggled to keep the run-rate down.
After winning their first two fixtures, the Giants have not picked up wins in either of their last two scheduled games. However, they still look to be a very strong batting side.
The Kings lost a very close game to Manipal Tigers by three runs on Monday, a result which leaves them bottom of the table on net-run-rate but only two points from India Capitals and Gujarat Giants in the top two places. The Kings win came in Match two of the tournament against Manipal Tigers.
Although they lost, the Kings very nearly reached their target of 176 on Monday evening. Morne van Wyk, normally so consistent in these games, was the only one of the top seven to not make double figures. Yusuf Pathan hit four sixes in his innings of 42 runs from 21 balls.
After letting Manipal Tigers reach 109-0 halfway through the 11th over of the game, Bhilwara Kings did very well to almost bowl them out and restrict them to 175-8 on Monday. Tino Best was the pick of the bowlers and dismissed Corey Anderson, Ricardo Powell and Harbhajan Singh.
It is now three games without a win for the Kings but the defeat to Manipal Tigers did show plenty of signs of improvements.
