The 3rd match of the Karnataka Premier League 2019 will be played between Bellary Tuskers and Belagavi Panthers at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The match starts at 7:00 PM local time (IST) (1:30 PM GMT).
A batsman-friendly pitch can be expected for the evening game if the weather permits. The moisture in the pitch could go away if it is exposed under the sun during the 3 PM match. Under the lights, a fresh pitch could test the patience of the batsmen like it did on Friday during the tournament opener.
