The 11th match of the Maharashtra Premier League 2023 will see the Chhatrapati Sambhaji Kings take on the Kolhapur Tuskers at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Chhatrapati Sambhaji Kings are really struggling in the competition as they have played three games so far and are yet to win a single game. They suffered a loss against the Ratnagiri Jets in their previous game.
Bowling first, the Kings picked up five wickets in total and restricted the Jets to 173/5. In reply, Onkar Khatpe scored 60 but a lack of contributions from the other batters resulted in them falling short of the target by 17 runs. They will have to be at their absolute best on Thursday (June 22) to grab their first win of the tournament.
Kolhapur Tuskers, on the other hand, have won two games out of three and have four points to their name. They faced the Solapur Royals in their last game and beat them convincingly to grab their second win.
After being asked to bat first, Kedar Jadhav (85) and Ankit Bawne (63) led the charge with the bat which helped them finish their innings on 186/5. Manoj Yadav starred with the ball as he picked up three wickets to help the Tuskers win the game by 26 runs. They will look to repeat the same performance against the Kings.
