KAR Vs JAM Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Unstoppable Karnataka handed over a relatively favourable tie in their quarter-final fixture
After winning both the white ball competitions in the Indian domestic cricket fraternity this season with triumphs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Karnataka’s next step was to complete the trivalent of trophies. As they made an advent into the Ranji Trophy, expectations were massively elevated from the side given their rampant form this season.
And up till now, the side have shown that be it white or red ball cricket, they are undefeatable this season. Unbeaten in their seven Elite Group A and B encounters with the three wins and four draws, the side finished in 5th spot in the group to canter their way into the quarter-finals of the competition.
However, the side which has aspirations of going all the way in the tournamnet will be well aware that the road ahead is a long one for them. And their first test will see them take on a meticulous Jammu and Kashmir unit, a side which took over Elite Group C after ending in first place in the group with a tearaway lead courtesy of 6 wins and 2 draws.
KAR Vs JAM Probable Winner
Karnataka have been the side to beat in the Indian domestic circuit this season and unfortunately for Jammu and Kashmir, they won’t be the side beating them. On a surface where the spinners will thrive, Karnataka’s dominance with both the bat and ball will leave Jammu and Kashmir in disarray.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A surface which will keep everyone interested, we are going to be in for an even contest between the bat and ball over here. With the surface crumbling to give way to the bowlers who take pace off the ball after day one and two, the team winning the toss will be looking to step out and bat first.

Where Karnataka have upped the mantle in this season of India’s cricketing travails, so has opener Devdutt Padikal. He’s undoubtedly been the most instrumental player for them, a name who is topping the ranks of their run getters with the 535 runs.
He’s paired alongside his counterpart Ravikumar Samarth with the opener pulling off an impressive 392 runs till now to make him a must have selection for the encounter. Karun Nair completes the trio of picks from the side for this clash while from the opposition we are moving in with opener Suryansh Raina for this one.
KAR Vs JAM Dream11 All-Rounders
On a wicket which will see his rotations and trajectory on the ball wreck havoc in Jammu and Kashmir’s batting ranks, K Gautham was always a player we were going to make our first pick in this component of our Dream 11 contingent.
From Jammu and Kashmir meanwhile, we are indulging in the lone selection of their captain Parvez Rasool for this tie.
