Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is just a match away to decide its champions for 2019. When the southern states of India-- Karnataka and Tamil Nadu-- clash in the finals. Both teams had met in the Vijay Hazare Trophy finals just a month ago, where Karnataka were crowned as champions.
Karnataka will once again have the tag of favourites to lift the trophy as they have already defeated their rivals in the Super League stage a few days ago.
The match will feature International stars like KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey from Karnataka, while Tamil Nadu will go with their experienced campaigners Dinesh Karthik and R. Ashwin.
The contest will be between Karnataka's power hitters against Tamil Nadu's tricky spinners. Washington Sundar, apart from producing big wickets, also plays a vital role in team's top batting order coming from an exhilarating 54 against Rajsthan that guided his team in to the finals.
Karnataka's charge will be led by openers, Devdutt Padikkal and KL Rahul. Padikkal was the highest run-scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and is also leading the charts in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy with 548 runs from 11 innings at a strike rate of 178.5. His 42-ball 87 and Rahul's 31-ball 66 in the semifinal will give Karnataka confidence for the title clash.
