KTA vs SRT Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 30, 2022
Karnataka and Saurashtra will play against each other in the semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Both teams won their quarter-final pretty comfortably in the end but neither of their performances was flawless. There appear to be some gaps and weaknesses that other teams should be able to target.
Karnataka is the slight favorite going into this important contest.
KTA vs SRT Team Previews
Takes with chasing down a par total, Karnataka took the match deep and won with just a few deliveries remaining. They also lost six wickets in the chase and that was not something that they would have been happy about.
Samarth R, Nikin Jose, Manish Pandey, and Shreyas Gopal all got some runs but only Samarth was able to convert his start into a somewhat substantial score. Mayank Aggarwal was the one big name to miss out and he would certainly want to do better in the semis.
Karnataka’s bowling attack is spin heavy with the likes of K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal doing the heavy lifting.
The sheer amount of experience in this lineup is hard to match and it helps that the team has been at the sharp end of tournaments regularly in the past few years.
Karnataka Playing 11
BR Sharath, Krishnappa Gowtham, Manoj Bhandage, Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey, Nikin Jose, Ravikumar Samarth, Ronit More, Shreyas Gopal, Vidwath Kaverappa, V Koushik.
Saurashtra defended a par score with an excellent bowling display that saw them win by 44 runs in the end. Harvik Desai continued his solid tournament and runs from Gohil, Vasavada, Vyas, Jani, and Mankad shows that the depth available in the lineup is quite good.
The problem for Saurashtra is that it is very good while chasing par totals but when asked to score at a high run rate, its batsmen seem uncomfortable and make mistakes.
The bowling attack for Saurashtra is excellent. Jaydev Unadkat has been one of the best performers in domestic cricket for a while now and will be helped by some very accurate spinners. Keeping the run rate in check and almost choking the opposition is the game plan that Saurashtra follows instead of being ultra-aggressive and going for runs.
Saurashtra Playing 11
Arpit Vasavada, Jay Gohil, Kushang Patel, Sheldon Jackson, Chirag Jani, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, Harvik Desai, Jaydev Unadkat, Parth Bhut, Prerak Mankad, Samarth Vyas.

We think Karnataka has an excellent chance of progressing to the Final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022. The best of the Karnataka batting is yet to be seen and players like Manish Pandey and Mayank Aggarwal are known for turning up on big occasions.
The conditions are completely in favor of the batsmen and that should give Karnataka an advantage in this contest.
