Karnataka got off to a disastrous start. The bowling duo of Jaydev Unadkat and Kushang Patel kept the Karnataka batters on the backfoot. Mayank Agarwal and Ravikumar Samarth opened the innings for Karnataka. Agarwal looked rusty throughout his innings and paid price for it.
Man in form Ravikumar Samarth held the one end pretty well and he was accompanied by Nikin Jose in the middle. They stitched a partnership of 28 runs for the 3rd wicket.
Prerak Mankad scalped the two wickets in the 19th over and broke the backbone of Karnataka's batting.
Ravikumar Samarth played an exceptional knock under the pressure. The wickets were tumbling down from the other end but he batted beautifully at one end. He scored 88 runs in 135 balls to help his put up 171 runs on the board in 49.1 overs.
