Gujarat haven’t lost a match in the ongoing tournament till yet and will be aiming to extend their brilliant run. Skipper Parthiv Patel and Axar Patel have played a crucial role in guiding their side to semis and are expected to come good in the important game too. For Bengal, veteran batsman Manoj Tiwary performed consistently and will be aiming to guide his team to the title.

Karnataka have also been invincible in the tournament and the inclusion of in-form batsman KL Rahul will be a big boost for them. Speaking of Saurashtra, they will miss the services of Cheteshwar Pujara as the batsman is with the national side in New Zealand. Nevertheless, players like Jaydev Unadkat and Sheldon Jackson will be playing and are very well able to put up match-defining performances.
