Mangalore Dragons take on Mysore Warriors in the 22nd match of the 2023 Maharaja Trophy on Wednesday, August 23.
Shivamogga Lions put an end to Mysore’s remarkable four-match winning run, while simultaneously putting a stop to their own three-match losing spell. Even though Nihal Ullal put up an amazing performance at the start by forging precious partnerships, Mysore did stand a chance after Ullal and Manohar’s exit, as 24 runs were needed with only 12 balls left.
Shivaraj’s two crucial sixes altered the game’s dynamics, paving the way for a successfully completed chase in the following over. Mysore, which currently occupy the second position, now face even more competition in the race to the semifinals as the Lions have equaled them with this win.
The Bengaluru Blasters suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Dragons, who put up a show of absolute dominance, securing their third win on the trot. The Blasters’ scorecard looked nothing short of pathetic, with only Shubhang Hegde’s determined half-century and his partnership of 57 runs with Sarfaraz Ashraf preventing it from being a complete disaster.
The Blasters’ batting crumbled spectacularly, losing eight wickets in just eight overs for a meager 57 runs. Paras Arya was the prime architect behind this demolition, completely tearing apart the Blasters’ batting lineup with his remarkable figures of 5-22.
Amongst the ruins of the Blasters’ batting, Hegde’s all-around performance, which included his excellent figures of 1-25 with the ball, shone like a beacon. Ultimately, the match showcased an undeniable contrast in the performances of the two teams.
The clash between Mangalore Dragons and Mysore Warriors will surely now add more intensity to the semifinal race, as the competition now is getting supremely tough.
