Mithun’s blitzkrieg guides Bijapur Bulls to finals

September 23, 2017

Hubballi: Bijapur Bulls ensured a date with Belagavi Panthers in the final of the Karbonn Smartphones Karnataka Premier League 2017, powered by Cycle Pure Agarbathies, with a four-wicket win over a spirited Namma Shivamogga at the KSCA Rajnagar Stadium, here yesterday.

Abhimanyu Mithun’s late brilliant unbeaten 12-ball 32 – after he was dropped for a nought by Liyan – provided the surge Bijapur needed to cross the line after Shivamogga, after being put in, went about defending their 157 for 5 with gusto. It means the final of the sixth edition of the tournament will be played between two of the strongest sides of the tournament. As an added treat to the fans, Belagavi will be represented by their brand ambassador, Bollywood superstar Sunil Shetty in the finale to be held later in the day.

Brief Score: Namma Shivamogga 157 for 5 in 20 overs (Liyan Khan 45, Shoaib Manager 36 not out; M.G. Naveen 2 for 27) lost to Bijapur Bulls 159 for 6 in 19.4 overs (M. Nidesh 25, Abhimanyu Mithun 32 not out; Akhil Balachandra 2 for 20).
