Match Details :
Venue : Lalbhai Contractor Stadium,Surat.
Date : 01/12/2019
Time : 7 PM IST.
Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Finals between Karnataka vs Tamil Nadu.
Southern derby yet again after both these teams faced off in the Vijay Hazare finals just 35 days back where Karnataka hammered Tamil Nadu. Karnataka have also defeated TN in the super league stage. If Karnataka’s strength is heavy batting in the top 4,TN’s strength has been their spin core with 5 frontline spinners playing regularly in the XI.
Pitch Report :
Lalbhai Contractor stadium where the semi finals took place. In one pitch we saw run fest whereas in the 2nd semi finals we saw it was helping the bowlers especially the spinners. It is said 2 pitches are prepared and the match refree will take a call before toss.Considering it’s finals we might see them using a pitch where it has something for both batters & bowlers so we might not see the batting paradise. And with dew around as it’s a night game,spinners are going to toil very hard for wkts especially the one’s bowling 2nd.
Team news :
No injury concerns.
Karnataka might bring in Suchith for Ronit More,playing with 3 pacers didn’t work out well so we might see Karnataka playing 2 pacers + 3 spin options.
Can’t rule out Karnataka bringing in Pavan for Kadam who gives few overs with the ball and a decent No.6 too.
TN might bring in Periyasamy for M Ashwin to give some pace options for TN as they have more than enough spin options.

Bowlers : Gopal Natarajan Siddarth Koushik.
C options : Mayank Manish Devdutt Sundar Rahul
VC Options : Karthik Ashwin Gopal
Mayank picked as C due to his crazy performance in knock outs. He has some great average in knock outs for karnataka.
Rahul had to be risked because of credit.
Ashwin opened last game after TN not finding proper opening pair even after trying so many combinations.
TN batting lineup looks like a mess with Baba playing 5/6 which is never his position in t20’s. It keeps on changing each game,they’re mostly using as per the situation than fixed order.
Grand league Tips :
Manish Pandey,only picked by 22% which says people have gone with top 3. If there is some help for the bowlers, considering how good TN bowling is,Manish might get to bat decent number of overs to make a statement.
Baba Aparajith,hardly picked because he has been used in many batting positions,as this is a big game we might see him coming back to open or at 3.
D Karthik is a good player of spin,he’s picked not by many due to credit issue,he is worth C in GL.
Nishant has got a 70 in one game but other games he has failed,as he is an opener & how mediocre is Karnataka pace,we might see him doing well.
R Ashwin opened last game & he did well too so there are chances of him continuing there & that makes him a very good option for C as he gives 4 overs.
