Bezawada Tigers (BZW) will lock horns with Rayalaseema Kings (RYLS) in the Qualifier 2 clash of the Andhra Premier League 2022 at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Saturday, July 16. The match will start at 6:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
BZW vs RYLS Dream11 prediction
Led by Ricky Bhui, Bezawada Tigers pipped Coastal Riders to qualify for APL 2022 Qualifier 2 clash. After Qualifier 1 between Bezawada Tigers and Coastal Riders was abandoned due to the rain, the Tigers booked their place in Qualifier 2 after finishing higher on the APL 2022 points table. Both the Tigers and the Riders accumulated 12 points from five league matches but the former finished above the Riders due to a better net run-rate.
On the other hand, Rayalaseema Kings defeated Uttarandhra Lions by five wickets in the APL 2022 Eliminator to secure their place in the Qualifier 2.
Bezawada Tigers have registered two wins, and one loss while two matches have been abandoned in their last five matches in the ongoing tournament. Meanwhile, Rayalaseema Kings have won three matches, and suffered one defeat while one match was abandoned.
Interestingly, the earlier meeting between the Tigers and the Kings in the group stage was called off due to rain.
Going by recent form, RYLS will start as favourites against BZW in Qualifier 2 on Saturday.
BZW vs RYLS Dream11 team tips for Andhra Premier League 2022 Eliminator
Top Tip: Best batter
Bezawada Tigers’ Pyla Avinash will be the batter to watch out for in the Andhra Premier League Qualifier 2. The 22-year-old middle-order batter has been the second highest run-scorer in the tournament so far, amassing 164 runs in five matches at an impressive average of 41. Avinash has accumulated 266 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Rayalaseema Kings’ B Santosh Kumar has been the joint leading wicket-taker in the inaugural edition of the tournament alongside Uttarandhra Lions’ Shoaib Md Khan. The fast bowler has picked eight wickets in four matches at an average of 15.62. Santosh Kumar has already accrued 264 fantasy points and will be a smart pick at 9 credits.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Rayalaseema Kings captain Girinath Reddy will be the overwhelming choice. He has scored 74 runs and claimed five wickets in the tournament. Having amassed 275 fantasy points so far, picking Girinath Reddy in any fantasy team is a no-brainer at 9.5 credits.
Bezawada Tigers’ Maddala A Praneeth pips K N Prudhvi Raj of Rayalaseema Kings for the wicket-keeper spot. Besides fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Praneeth is a handy batter in the middle-order. At just 8.5 credits, Praneeth could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
