Karnataka square off against Bengal in an Elite Group B match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy at the Nehru Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday.

Karnataka are having a good run in the tournament so far and won their previous game against Baroda as well. Bowling first, the bowlers did a great job of keeping Baroda restricted to 134/7 at the end of their innings.

Devdutt Padikkal struck a fifty, and along with contributions from Mayank Agarwal and Karun Nair, Karnataka chased down the target in 19.1 overs with seven wickets at their disposal. It was a good all-round show from Karnataka with both the bat and the ball.

Bengal, meanwhile, are coming into this contest on the back of a commanding nine-wicket win over Services. Bowling first, they restricted Services to just 90/8 from 20 overs in an all-round bowling display.

The batters then made light work of the chase, scaling the target down in just 10.5 overs, losing a single wicket. Skipper Sudip Chatterjee led from the front with a quick-fire fifty. Just like Karnataka, Bengal did well in all departments in the match.

With both teams having won their last games, this will be an interesting contest.
