KAR Vs BRD Dream 11 Prediction: Karnataka Vs Baroda. Undefeated Karnataka touted as overwhelming favourite for today’s upcoming encounter.
After dominating the Indian cricketing domestic season across the white ball tournamnets, Karnataka made an advent into the Rani Trophy looking to emanate the same rousing performances in red ball cricket as well. And they have fared off reasonably well till now as well to sit in 5th spot in Elite Group A and B after seven rounds of fixtures in the competion.
However, despite remaining emulate till now, the side will be lamenting a clack of decisiveness from them. Its lead to them having to endure four draws in those seven encounters with the side tasting a shut down in their previous fixture as well after they and Madhya Pradesh both ended up scoring in excess of 400 in their first innings.
They’ll be looking to wrench free of that impasse come today’s tie. Up against a waning Baroda side with which a mere 2 wins in seven clashes finds itself crumbling to sit in the bottom ranks of the group standings. Their previous outing perfectly encapsulated their tussle this season with the side dismissed to a horrendous innings and 57 run defeat against Tamil Nadu.
Picking out a winner from the contest was an easy task for us. Baroda have shambolically collapsed with both the bat and ball this season and up against a way more dominant and superior Karnataka side, their lack of endurance and valour should see them slip to their fourth defeat in the tournamnet.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A wicket which will play completely in favour of the bats on the first two days, the team winning the toss is bound to come out and bat first in this one. A hefty first innings score is extremely plausible with the slower bowlers coming into play in the culminating two days of the fixture.

With 394 runs in this edition of the Ranji Trophy, we’ll be venturing in with Kedar Devdhar from Baroda for this encounter. The opener will be crucial to the side’s chances of salvaging something from this encounter and given the batting conducive conditions on offer, we envision him coming up with a solid score.
He’s accompanied by his side’s top scorer with Vishnu Solanki being embedded in our Dream 11 unit courtesy of the 412 runs he has this season. Meanwhile, we had to begin our set of selections from Karnataka with Devdutt Padikal with the player continuing his rampant form in the Ranji Trophy as well to accrue a stunning 535 runs till now.
The 392 runs for Ravikumar Samarth see him come in as well from the unit along with Karun Nair as we opt for an entire trio from the side for this one.
The two players are being brought in by us from Baroda for this fixture with both Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda coming in. Both hold escalated roles with the bat and ball to make them two sublime picks, players who’ll intertwine their skill set in both the dockets to pull off a slew of points for us.
Elsewhere, after Baroda ended up shambolically falling apart in their previous tie, wrist spinner Shreyas Gopal was always going to be inducted in our side from Karnataka.
Just the one selection for us from Baroda with us opting for their leading wicket taker in the form of Atit Seth who has the 12 wickets till now. From Karnataka meanwhile it was only befitting of us to venture in with a partnership given their opposition’s plight with the bat. In Ronit More and V Koushik, we have an enigmatic partnership coming in, two bowlers who’ll manifest their attributes in tandem to snare wickets at regular intervals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Given his imperious touch, Devdutt was a must have choice as captain while Ravikumar is our vice-captain.
