Kathmandu Kings XI vs Bhairahawa Gladiators match will take place at Kiritipur Cricket Ground and will begin at 9:30 a.m. NST on October 2 this morning.
On Saturday, the Bhairahawa Gladiators will face Kathmandu Kings XI in the 13th match of the Everest Premier League at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur.
Due to heavy rain, the Gladiators’ season opener against the Pokhara Rhinos was canceled. They did, however, show enough grit and character against Biratnagar Warriors to earn their first win of the season in a low-scoring contest.
The Gladiators recently completed a jailbreak by tying the Lalitpur Patriots in their most recent game. Chasing 177 on a difficult wicket, Gladiators reached the target in exactly 20 overs, thanks to Upul Tharanga’s 67-run unbeaten knock. Gladiators will be relieved with their overall performance in the tournament, and they will sleep soundly with the table-toppers tag.
Meanwhile, Kathmandu Kings XI had a shaky start to the season. Their first game of the season was nothing short of dominant. After winning the toss and electing to field, the Kings allowed only 157 runs to the Lalitpur Patriots. In response, the Kings needed only 14.2 overs to reach the goal.
However, the Kings were unable to maintain their dominance in their second game, falling to the Chitwan Tigers by an eight-wicket defeat. Batting first, the Kings could only muster 141 runs, which the Tigers had to chase down in 18.4 overs.
Both teams have had their fair share of dominance in the tournament, so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
Match: Kathmandu Kings XI vs Bhairahawa Gladiators, Match 13, Everest Premier League (EPL) 2021.
Date and Time: October 2nd, 2021, Friday, 09:30 AM NST.
Venue: Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur.
So far in the tournament, the weather has not been cooperative. Interruptions have occurred throughout, and the same is expected during this competition. The temperature is expected to range between 20 and 23 degrees Celsius.
The 22-yard strip at Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground appears to be adequate for batting. However, if there is enough rain throughout the tournament, there will be some dampness on the wicket, which could make life difficult for batters after the first few overs. It is best to bat first on this relatively damp surface.
Both teams have enough firepower to make this a nail-biter. The Bhairahawa Gladiators, on the other hand, have momentum in both the batting and bowling departments and are expected to cross the line with two valuable points.
