KAR vs MUM: Three-time winners Karnataka are set to host the defending champions Mumbai in a high-profile Elite Group A and B game in the Vijay Hazare trophy 2019, at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, in Bangalore.
Karnataka have amassed 16 points from the first five games, winning four, with the only defeat coming against Hyderabad. They are sitting atop Elite Group, having played a game less than 2nd placed Hyderabad and Chattisgarh in third place.
But their current position on the table isn’t a real indicator of the form this team is in. In fact, they have tasted just one defeat in those five games, which came only in the first game itself, while two matches were washed out.
