Karnataka’s Fortress Awaits The Undefeated Tamil Nadu

On Wednesday, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu won their respective semi-finals to meet each other in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019 final summit game.

While here Karnataka thrashed Chhattisgarh with nine wickets at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru at Just Cricket Academy (JCA) Ground, Tamil Nadu registered a five-wicket victory over Gujarat in the rain-affected low-scoring game.

Chasing Chhattisgarh’s 224-run target, Karnataka got off to a fine start as openers KL Rahul and Devdutt Padikkal shared a 155-run partnership to put their side in the driver’s seat for the first wicket.

Although Rahul played an unbeaten 88-run knock before he got out, Padikkal made 92 runs after which India’s opener Mayank Agarwal played an unbeaten 33-ball 44-run cameo to help Karnataka win in just 40 overs.

Earlier being asked to bat first, Chhattisgarh’s Amandeep Khare’s 78 and Sumit Ruikar’s 40 took their side to a moderate total in 49.4 overs before they were bowled out. For Karnataka, medium-pacer V Koushik scalped four wickets.

It should be a keenly contested game of cricket. Since both teams have never lost a Vijay Hazare Trophy final, it adds an extra element of intrigue.

Besides being an amateur travel blogger, I am an out-and-out cricket buff, breathing this game 24x7. I endlessly surf a channel in hope that I get some riveting action of this game
