Karnataka will be up against Rajasthan in the Preliminary Quarter-Final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021/22 on Sunday, 19th December at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
Karnataka had a decent showing in the group stage of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021/22 as they finished at the second spot in the Elite Group B points table with three wins in five matches. They suffered a four-wicket victory in their previous match against Bengal and would be hoping to make a strong comeback to book their spot in the Quarter-Finals.
On the other hand, Rajasthan performed admirably in the group stages finishing at the top of the Elite Group E points table having won four of their five games. They were defeated by Services in their last game which cost them a direct entry in the quarter-finals but will now aim to bounce back and move forward.
