BLR vs GUJ, Indian T20 League 2022 Match 67, MPL Prediction and Top Picks

Match: Bangalore vs Gujarat (BLR vs GUJ, Match #67)

Date: May 19, 2022 – 3:30 PM IST

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Bangalore and Gujarat will play their respective last group stage game against each other on May 19 at the Wankhede Stadium. For Bangalore to make the playoffs, they will need to win this game and also hope that Delhi lose their last league game against Mumbai. If Delhi win their last league game, Bangalore will be eliminated.

Gujarat, on the other hand, have already qualified for the playoffs after winning 10 out of 13 matches. They are right at the top of the points table and that will not change even if they lose this match. But they will want to enter the playoffs on the back of a win and with confidence.

When Gujarat and Bangalore met in the reverse fixture earlier this season, the Hardik Pandya-led side won by six wickets. After restricting Bangalore to a first innings total of 170 runs, Gujarat chased down the target in 19.3 overs. Rahul Tewatia was the showstopper for his unbeaten 43 off 25 balls. Pradeep Sangwan was the best bowler – he conceded only 19 runs in four overs while picking up two wickets.

Top Fantasy Picks for BLR vs GUJ

Glenn Maxwell – all-rounder, Bangalore

Glenn Maxwell has got good starts in most of his recent outings but has not been able to construct a big knock. With this game being a must-win for Bangalore, expect the big-hitting batsman to deliver a big innings. So far this season, Maxwell has scored 228 runs, picked five wickets and also taken four catches.

Hardik Pandya – All-rounder, Gujarat

Another all-rounder you must pick in your MPL team is Hardik Pandya, even though his runs have dried up in the second half of the tournament. Pandya, who began the season on a terrific note, has scores of 10, 3, 1, 24, 11 and 7 in his last six outings and will be looking to find his form back ahead of the playoffs.

Mohammad Shami – Bowler, Gujarat

Mohammad Shami has been one of Gujarat’s best bowlers this season, especially at the Wankhede stadium, where he has taken eight wickets in three games at a strike rate of nine. Shami is the highest wicket-taker for Gujarat this season and overall the seventh highest wicket-taker with 18 wickets in 13 games at an economy of under eight runs per over.

Dinesh Karthik – Wicketkeeper batsman, Bangalore

Wanindu Hasaranga – All-rounder, Bangalore

There are quite a few quality all-rounders you can pick for this game. Along with Maxwell and Pandya, trust Hasaranga too to help you score points in your fantasy team.  He is the second leading wicket-taker this season with 23 wickets in 13 games at an economy of 7.48, just one wicket short of Yuzvendra Chahal’s 24 wickets.
