SAU Vs KAR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: A win sees unbeaten Karnataka move to the top of the league group standings.
Unscathed in the ongoing edition of the Rani Trophy, Karnataka are well on course to emulate the same rapturous displays which saw them emerge as clear winners of India’s white ball arena this season. After triumphs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy, the side are now looking to clampdown on red ball cricket as well in the Indian domestic arena.
And as the side look to sweep all the domestic tournamnets this season, today’s encounter comes bearing with it immense ramifications for the side. Currently in second spot in Elite Group A and B with the two wins and two draws in their kitty, a win against Saurashtra will see them move into the pinnacles of the group standings.
And after defeating a depleted Mumbai side by 5 wickets the last time around, the side will be quietly confident of keeping their unscathed spree intact when they step out in the middle for their fifth affair. Saurashtra are coming into the encounter having been handed over their first defeat of the tournamnet, a colossal innings and 72 run defeat against Uttar Pradesh which saw them move down into fourth place.
Saurashtra might have been thumped in all departments of the game the last time around but there is no denying the stellar nature of their outfit. This will be a levelly balanced tie, one we envision Karnataka winning owing to their more well rounded bowling unit and capability to strike with wickets at regular intervals.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A track which has been cut out from the same cloth as some of the best batting surface in the world, the batsmen are going to be extremely jubilant while batting here. The wicket does tend to start cracking open as the match runs down its course especially on the 4th and 5th days, something which will lead the side winning the toss opting to bat first.

SAU Vs KAR Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Saurashtra’s captain and opener, Snell Patel is going to be our pick in this ambit of our Dream 11 side. Not only is the wicket-keeper capable of piling on the runs for his side but on a wicket where he’ll be allowed to open his arms with ease and cream the ball to the fence.
SAU Vs KAR Dream11 Batsmen
Although he’s not come up with numbers which justify his calibre as a player, Cheteshwar Pujara has still tallied up 145 runs for his side in this edition of the tournamnet to become an instant pick for us from Saurashtra. He’s paired up by Harvik Desai someone who has to his name 198 runs in 3 encounters, a bat who is steadfastly becoming the mainstay of his side’s batting order.
The momentous 372 runs Devdutt Padikal has garnered up for Karnataka include the four 50s in the them, something which exults in how pristine form he is at the moment.
SAU Vs KAR Dream11 All-Rounders
Shreyas Goal will be his side’s captain for this encounter with Nair unavailable for the encounter and his legspin wasn’t the only thing we factored in while making him the first name to be roped in this facet. The player has been brought up his side’s batting order to galvanise it at number 6, a spot which makes him the ideal all-rounder to get in for this one.
Pavan Deshpande will be coming in as well from Karnataka while from the other side of the slot we are moving in with Dharmendrasinh Jadeja. The player has tallied up 159 runs and the 6 wickets to go with them this term, figures which show how quintessential a player he’s been for the side this term.
SAU Vs KAR Dream11 Bowling Order
After collapsing with the bat the last time around to lose by a calamitous margin, Saurashtra don’t exude much confidence with the at the moment. And with the wicket set to unravel as the match runs down its course, we are getting in a trio of bowlers from Karnataka in case Saurashtra lose their belongings once again.
With 13 wickets till now, V Koushik will be our first pick from the side with Ronit More and Prateek Jain giving him company far the contest. Elsewhere, the 5 wickets for Jaydev Unadkat make him our lone pick from Saurashtra for the tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Devdutt is our undisputed captain while Shreyas is our vice-captain.
