Kerala and Saurashtra are set to lock horns in pre-quarter-final 3 of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy on Sunday, October 30. Eden Gardens in Kolkata will host the encounter.

Kerala, captained by Sanju Samson, started their campaign with three wins on the trot against Arunachal Pradesh, Karnataka and Haryana. Thereafter, they lost two matches against Services and Maharashtra to lose quite a bit of momentum.

However, wins against Jammu & Kashmir and Meghalaya put them back on track. They will go into the pre-quarter-finals after beating Meghalaya by five wickets. Kerala finished second in the points table in Elite Group C with 20 points and a net run rate of +1.402.

Saurashtra, captained by Jaydev Unadkat, on the other hand, finished third in Elite Group D with 18 points and a net run rate of +1.568 from six matches. They defeated Ashutosh Aman's Bihar by eight wickets in their previous match on October 20.

After being put in to field first, Saurashtra bowled Bihar out for 119 in 19.4 overs. While Dharmendrasinh Jadeja and Unadkat picked up two wickets apiece, Chetan Sakariya accounted for three scalps. Saurashtra chased the target down in 14.1 overs.
