Nostragamus: 2019 Syed Mushtaq Ali Final – KAR vs TN Fantasy Preview

It’s a replay of a couple of months ago. Just recently, these two played against each other in the final of the 2019 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Change of format now to T20 in the 2019 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and once again, we find Karnataka in the final against the same opponent, Tamil Nadu. Karnataka won the 50-over final and Tamil Nadu will be looking to avenge that loss today.

In the recent Super League, Tamil Nadu finished the top of Group B with 3 wins in 4 games, and Karnataka was right behind them with 3 wins too, but a slightly lower net run rate. Keep reading for our Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy preview for the KAR vs TN game…

  • Head to head in last 5 games, Karnataka leads 4-1.
  • In the Super League match-up, Karnataka won by 9 wickets.
  • Devdutt Padikkal – 548 runs in 11 games this season.
  • Ravi Sai Kishore – 20 wickets in 11 games this season.
  • Washington Sundar scores in last 3 games – 54*, 38*, 45*.


This team has some great batting might, so select your fantasy players who bat in the top or middle order. Devdutt Padikkal is the tournament leader with 5 fifties and a century and he’s a must pick considering he was also the top scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy prior to that. Mayank Agarwal joined the squad in the last game and scored 30* in that semi-final game, coming off a double century against Bangladesh recently.

Leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal is the highest wicket-taker for Karnataka this season and so far, he’s got 18 wickets, also having a good IPL 2019 earlier this year. In 6 games so far this season, all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham has only managed 3 wickets this season, but he’s one player who can change the game in the T20 format.

Tamil Nadu

With the ball, pick Ravi Sai Kishore in your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy team not only because he’s the highest wicket taker but he’s also the only bowler with 5 maidens in the tournament; fantasy leagues offer more points for maidens as well. The team is being led by Dinesh Karthik and he’s a worthy pick; the team is expected to be unchanged from the semi final.

We’re not picking many batsmen as Karthik is their top scorer, with only 281 runs so far. All-rounder Washington Sundar is a good pick because he’s not been dismissed in the last 3 games. He’s coming off a stint with the national side plus he’s got 4 wickets in his last 2 games. All-rounder Baba Aparajith has also been having a good time in domestic cricket, which makes him a captain/vice-captain pick too.
