KAR vs HAR Dream11, Karnataka vs Haryana.
Match Details :
Venue : Surat(Gujarat)
Date : 29/11/2019
Time : 2:30 PM IST.
SMAT20 1st Semi Finals between Karnataka and Haryana. Both the teams have been pretty consistent this tournament,as we all know Karnataka are crowned champions last month in Vijay Hazare & they are in a hot run,to make it better they’re also the defending champions in SMAT20. Though they are not unbeaten this time like last year, they’ve been pretty good. Haryana is a team where you could find some fine players,they were going great in Super league but had a very close defeat vs Maharashtra. Both the teams come into this game with a defeat in their previous which in no way could affect their confidence because of the performance they have put in so far.
Pitch Report :
We have seen teams crumbling to spin one day & next day in the same ground teams scoring in excess of 180 that is because they’re using 2 type pitches in the same ground so we can’t really predict what type of pitch are they going to give for this game but as this is a big game we might see a decent pitch unlike the one’s where spinners run through opponents like 3 of TN games.
Team news :
Mayank Aggarwal is back and he’ll be seen playing for Karnataka.
No other injury concerns.
Rohan Kadam even after performing so well in the last game might have to sit out for Mayank. In reality it should be Karun Nair going out because of the poor form he is in but his seniority could save him.
Vasuki Koushik was rested last game and he could possibily comeback for Mithun.
C Bishnoi Haryana’s opener is going through a rough patch but considering its a big game also not many options Haryana have,they might stick with the experienced guy to deliver in the big stage.
Shivam and Rana delivering for Haryana in the previous game is a good sign for them coming into the knock outs.
Playing XI :
KAR : Rahul Devdutt Mayank Manish Karun Pavan Praveen Gowtham Gopal Ronit Koushik
HAR : Harshal Bishnoi Shivam Rana Tewatia Sumit Saroha Jayant Mishra Hooda Chahal
Kar vs HAR Dream XI team :
WK : KL Rahul(c)
Batters : Manish Mayank Devdutt Shivam
Allrounders : Tewetia(vc) Dubey Sumit
Bowlers : Gopal Hooda Koushik
C Options : Rahul,Devdutt,Mayank Tewetia
VC Options : Sumit Harshal Manish
I had to leave out Harshal Patel to get other big stars in the side,Harshal been a hit or fail with the bat,that’s his role as an opener. He gives good 4 overs where he bowls at death too. If Haryana bowl first I would suggest you to pick Harshal for Manish & pick Mishra for Hooda.
Haryana batting been very inconsistent and it also looks like a bits and pieces lineup but they always had one or two knock coming from somewhere to bail them out.
Grand league Tips :
Mayank is the new man in but people know how good he is but still many will risk him because he’s playing his first game this season so he could be a decent pick,he’s a great performer in knock outs.He has some astonishing average in limited overs knock outs for Karnataka,not to forget he was the one who took Karnataka to title in last SMAT20 finals alongside Kadam.
Rahul Tewetia is another option for his all-round skills.
Sumit Kumar is another player,last year when he played vs Karnataka he got a good 60+. He bowls medium pace and bats at 6 so he’s worth an option.
C Bishnoi is going through a rough patch but being an opener he can be a good punt for GL.
