GJG vs BHK T20 Eliminator Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Legends League Cricket 2022
Gujarat Giants will take on Bhilwara Kings at the Barkatullah Khan Stadium, Jodhpur. The Eliminator of the 2022 Legends Cricket League begins at 19:30 local time on Monday 3rd October.
The Giants qualified for the play-offs due to a superior net-run-rate than Manipal Tigers. Both sides won two matches, lost three games, had one no-result and ended the group stage with five points. The Giants finished two points from the two sides in second and first place.
Although they lost their last group stage game against Bhilwara Kings, Gujarat Giants posted 186-7 with half-centuries for Chris Gayle (68 runs from 40 balls) and Yashpal Singh (58 runs from 37 balls). Thisara Perera also hit a six in the match.
All of the Gujarat Giants’ bowlers struggled to keep the run rate down against the Kings in the last match but off-spinner Graeme Swann did impress. The former England international took 2-21 from three overs with Thisara Perera taking 1-14 from his two overs.
The Giants have lost their last three matches and need to find a strong performance if they are to stay in the tournament.
The Kings lost Sunday’s Qualifier fixture against India Capitals by four wickets with three balls remaining but have another opportunity to qualify for Wednesday’s final with this match. The Kings finished the group stage in second place.
After hitting 226-5 from their 20 overs, Bhilwara Kings thought they were in a strong position to progress to the final. However, the half-centuries for Ireland’s William Porterfield and Australia’s Shane Watson turned out to not be enough for a match winning total.
40 year old West Indian Fidel Edwards has had no problem taking wickets in this tournament and took another two in Sunday’s match. However, he also conceded 54 runs from his four overs and was one of many expensive bowlers on his side.
The Kings had won successive matches before losing the Qualifier by a small margin on Sunday.
