Karnataka has started off a very good note with two wins with KL Rahul leading the way with a sensational hundred against Kerala. On the other hand, Hyderabad has experienced mixed form with one win and loss each. They will depend on the captain, Ambati Rayudu to come good against a very good Karnataka bowling attack led by Prasidh Krishna.

A decent batting track awaits both sides with the pacers getting some help from the surface. Although it might be tough going initially, batters should bide their time in order to achieve a par score of around 270 with the spinners also coming into play as the match progresses.
Rain could play spoilsport in the latter half of the day although the game should be completed. Pacers will get some help from the cloudy conditions at the ground.
Injuries: No injuries were reported
Manish Pandey has been in very good form since the start of IPL 2019 and is one to watch out for in this match. Along with him, fellow Karnataka team-mates, Krishnappa Gowtham and KL Rahul are also picked. Ambati Rayudu is due for a big score in the tournament while the likes of Mohd Siraj and Prasidh Krishna should pick a wicket or two with their experience playing for the India A side coming in handy.
