Maharaja T20 League 2022, MW vs BB: Jagadeesha Suchith powers Blasters to a comfortable victory

Match 26 of Maharaja T20 League 2022 witnessed Bengaluru Blasters (BB) winning by 23 runs against Mysore Warriors (MW) at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. 

Jagadeesha Suchith was awarded Player of the Match for his contribution of 2/19 and 40 off 18 balls. 

Blasters posts a competitive total on the board

Invited to bat first, openers LR Chethan and Mayank Agarwal steered Blasters at a brisk rate in the powerplay overs. The duo added 61 runs for the first wicket, which laid a stable platform for the middle-order. 

In the end, Suchith provided a late flourish with a scintillating knock of 40 off 18 balls, with six boundaries and a six. The pick of the bowlers for the Warriors was Shreyas Gopal with three wickets. 

Clinical performance from bowlers help Blasters to maintain pole position

It was a bad start for the Warriors, wherein they lost their in-form batters Nihal Ullal and Karun Nair in a stiff chase. Then, Pavan Deshpande tried well, but could not take the game deep. 

Gopal was the lone contributor with 50 off 42 balls, as Warriors finished on 134/9 in their designated quota of 20 overs. 

With three scalps to his name, Rishi Bopanna again became the leading wicket-taker of Blasters.
