Earlier trophy: Mumbai, Karnataka desperate victory


Both Mumbai and Karnataka will notice their first win this season of the Early Trophy when the two sides gather from Tuesday in the Elite Group A match.

Mumbai made the first game of this season against the New Delhi Railway, but more importantly, they earned three key points after they took the first innings lead.

The same was the case with Karnataka, who caught three points after deciding to draw from Vidarbha to Nagpur after leading the first ined lead.

Mumbai, led by pacer Dhawal Kulkarni, has a strong position in the league, despite the absence of Rohit Sharma, Ajinkia Rahane or Prithvi Shav, who are all on national level.

For Mumbai, it will depend greatly on how Siddesh Lad is performing his crisis man. Ice has long been looking at a national bond, and another good exit will only build up its case.

Other directors – Akhil Hervadkar, Suria Kumar Yadav, Jai Bitsa and experienced careers and former captain Aditia Tara – must play their part to perfection.

Tara screwed up to form with 100 against the Railway and would be interested in adding more runs below his belt.

Even Shivam Dube also scored points and Mumbai hoped to get another big shot tomorrow.

On the bowling side, Kulkarni has the support of Pacer Tušar Deshpande, next to the spinners Karsh Kothari and Shams Mulani. If both players play, then the middle pacer Aakash Parker will probably sit down.

Asked about the absence of key towers, such as Rohit Sharma, Rahane and Shav, Mumbai coach Vinaiak Samant said: "It's an opportunity for other players to play and the team was set up for a clash."

Karnataka, led by Vinaio Kumaro, also have strong players and they would also want to beat Mumbai on their home ground.

Matches between these two rival parties have produced unforgettable moments in the past and another humdinger is expected.

Currently, the points table, Mumbai and Karnataka are at the eighth and ninth points, and victory would be beneficial to both sides.

In other matches of Elite Group A on Tuesday, Chhattisgarh takes the Railway to Raipur, Gujarat clashes with Saurastur in Nadiad, while Vidarba will host the game against Baroda in Nagpur.
