Andhra faces Karnataka in the upcoming fixture of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20. Both these sides find themselves in the opposite spectrums of the points table. Karnataka sits pretty in the second position whereas their opponents are placed eleventh on the leaderboard. The former has played some good cricket in this competition and their record of three wins and one loss in the four games played proves that fact. Thus, it will take a special effort from Andhra to thwart an in-form Karnataka side from managing yet another triumph.
Karnataka vs Andhra
7th October 2019
9:00 AM IST
Just Cricket Academy Ground, Bengaluru
Partly Cloudy conditions with decent chances of rain and temperature ranging around 24 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
There should be enough aid in the surface for the batsmen as well as the bowlers to ensure an exciting contest between bat and bowl.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Ashwin Hebbar and Prasanth Kumar will be expected to provide a stable start to the innings whereas Karan Shinde can hold the fort in the middle order. KV Sasikanth would be the key bowler for Andhra and will have his work cut out against a fearsome Karnataka batting unit.
Ashwin Hebbar, Prasanth Kumar, Srikar Bharat (WK), Ricky Bhui (C), Karan Shinde, Naren Reddy, Shoaib Md Khan, Girinath Reddy, Manish Golamaru, KV Sasikanth, Yarra Prithviraj
This is a formidable Karnataka side possessing some exquisite batting talent. The likes of KL Rahul, Karun Nair, and skipper Manish Pandey are capable of single-handedly taking the game away from their opposition whilst Abhimanyu Mithun and Prasidh Krishna are potent threats with the bowl in hand.
KL Rahul, Devdutt Padikkal, Karun Nair, Manish Pandey (C), Pavan Deshpande, Shreyas Gopal, BR Sharath (WK), Krishnappa Gowtham, Ronit More, Prasidh Krishna, Abhimanyu Mithun
Kl Rahul is in good touch ahead of this encounter and can be banked upon to accumulate a copious amount of points for your Dream11 Team. Manish Pandey is a must-pick considering he is the third-highest run-getter in the competition having amassed 292 runs across four matches at a stupendous average of 97.33. He should be picked either as the captain or as the vice-captain considering those fantastic numbers. Ashwin Hebbar and Krishnappa Gowtham too would be great picks for your fantasy side.
