In KAR vs PUN Dream 11 prediction, D Padikkal and K Nair are the key batters for Karanataka while in bowling, they will rely on P Krishna. For Punjab, M Singh is the main batter and S Kaul is the key wicket-taker.
KAR vs PUN Dream11 Prediction:
Wicket-keepers: P Singh
Batsmen: R Kadam, D Padikkal, M Singh, G Sing Mann
All-rounder: K Gowtham, S Gopal
Bowlers: P Dubey, J Suchith, A Singh, S Kaul
M Singh didn’t get to bat in the three of the first fours for Punjab, but when he got a chance in the final league game, he blasted 99 runs from 66 balls with 9 fours and 4 sixes. He comes to this game on the confidence of that knock. So expect him to add to his runs tally.
Gurkeerat Singh Mann was very effective in the last game against Tripura as he slammed 63 runs from just 33 balls with 3 fours and 6 sixes. His big-hitting can come in handy in this match.
D Paddikal hasn’t been in the dream-like form like the last year, but he has still chipped in with good scores. He made 34 runs from 19 balls against the strong bowling line-up of Uttar Pradesh in the last game. So a big inning can be round the corner for him.
J Suchith picked 3 wickets for 21 runs in the previous game. He has 5 wickets in 3 games and could be the X factor in this match.
Karnataka and Punjab both have big players. Although Punjab hasn’t loss a game in this tournament yet, Karanataka is known to up the ante in big games. So in the KAR vs PUN Dream11 today match prediction, expect KAR to win the game.
