So the long domestic session is about to start. After having some great tournaments in the limited formats of the game, it’s time to go to the longest format of the game. Ranji Trophy is alaays an exciting tournament and what better way to start the tournament than having the arch rivals compete once again? Karnataka & Tamil Nadu gave an outstanding Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy final. It was a toe to toe contest which Karnataka won at the back end by a mere one run.
When:- 9th November, 9:30 AM IST
Where:- NPR College Ground, Dindigul
But now the format is different. Karnataka might have an edge over Tamil Nadu in limited formats of the game but Tamil Nadu’s experienced squad makes an interesting test team. With guys like Ashwin, Karthik & Vijay in the hut who have been international stars of sorts, you can see how strong Tamil Nadu truly is. Vijay Shankar is going to be the captain and it is his first time as the leader, it is definitely going to be a great task in hand for him.
1. KL Rahul wouldn’t be available since he is busy playing the T20I series against West Indies.
2. Murali Vijay is going to make his comeback after an injury.
3. Dinesh Karthik will be keeping for Tamil Nadu after a decent amount of time.
