Karnataka and Vidarbha will lock horns in the second semi-final of the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on Saturday, November 20 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

Karnataka, led by Manish Pandey, won four out of five matches to finish second in Elite Group B after which they defeated Saurashtra by two wickets in the pre-quarter-finals. However, Karnataka had to play out of their skin to get past Bengal in the quarter-finals on November 18.

After being put in to bat first, Karnataka scored 160 for five riding on Karun Nair’s unbeaten 29-ball 55. Bengal tried their best, but couldn’t go beyond their opponent’s score. In the Super Over, Pandey hit Mukesh Kumar for a six to take Karnataka into the semi-finals.

Vidarbha, led by Akshay Wadkar, are currently unbeaten in the tournament. After winning all five of their matches in the Plate Group, they brushed aside Maharashtra and Rajasthan pretty comprehensively in the pre-quarter-finals and the quarter-finals respectively.

In the quarter-finals, Vidarbha beat Rajasthan by nine wickets at the Palam A Stadium. After electing to field first, they restricted Rajasthan to 84 for eight in 20 overs. In the run-chase, Atharva Taide stayed not out on 40 to take Vidarbha over the finish line with 31 balls left.
