Karnataka vs Tamil Nadu, Final
October 25th 2019, 9:00 AM IST
M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
Although there is some rain on the forecast, a match should be completed. Overcast conditions are set to engulf the venue with the temperature ranging between 22 and 26 degrees celsius during the match.
A good batting track awaits both sides although the overlying conditions in Bengaluru would ideally even out the contest between bat and ball. With the prospect of rain lingering over both sides, chasing should be preferred upon winning the toss.
Injuries: No injuries were reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
KL Rahul, Devdutt Padikkal, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Manish Pandey, Praveen Dubey, K Gowtham, Abhimanyu Mithun, Shreyas Gopal, V Kousik and Ronit More
Tamil Nadu shouldn’t be making any changes after a good win against Gujarat in the semi-final. They had Shahrukh Khan to thank for a brilliant fifty as he guided them home alongside Washington Sundar. Their bowling unit is their stronger suit with the arrival of Ravichandran Ashwin also boosting their chances of a win. Dinesh Karthik and Baba Aparajith have scored over 400 runs this season and will key for them in this final.
