Scores ranging between 140-150 are considered par on this pitch with Maharashtra easily chasing down 138 on Saturday.

All-rounders: Atharwa Taide has been exceptional with his cameos and is one to watch out for Sunday along with Akshay Karnewar and Jagadeesha Suchith. Suchith has been in good wicket-taking form and should put in another good shift for Karnataka with the ball.
Bowlers: Prasidh Krishna and V Kousik are must-haves in the team along with Umesh Yadav. Yadav should be backed to pick a wicket or two with the new ball. Akshay Wakhare is also in good wicket-taking form and is one to watch out for on Tuesday
Captain: Mayank Agarwal and Atharwa Taide are the ideal candidates for captaincy with both batsmen looking good for a big score in what is a crucial match for both teams. Karun Nair is also a viable option along with the aforementioned duo.
