Karnataka will take the field under new captain Sujit Somasundar, who replaced J Arunkumar, dropped after the team's pathetic performance against Bengal in the opener against Gujarat last week.
Commenting on today's match, Somasundar
side was "good and talented" and would focus on batting, which has not clicked so far. He
said Karnataka could have easily collected four points in their outing against Bengal and at least two points against Gujarat, but unfortunately failed to do so.
Karnataka would be depending on its wicketkeeper-batsman Tilak Naidu, Somasundar
and Barrington to get them the runs.
