Karnataka and Saurashtra clash in the first all-exciting semi-final match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy (VHT), scheduled to take place in the Narendra Modi Stadium A Ground, Ahmedabad. The two sides have produced some terrific cricket during the competition and have rightfully earned their spot in the last four of the VHT.

Saurashtra comfortably won their quarter final fixture against Tamil Nadu with a combined team effort coming with the bat and then Chirag Jani who was unbeaten with the bat was terrific with the ball as well as he scalped three wickets in his nine overs, giving away 53 runs.

On the other hand, Karnataka chased down a rather underwhelming total of 235 runs put by Punjab and cruised into the finals with their dominating performance. With just one match to go before cementing their spot in the summit clash, both sides will fire all cylinder to make their case strong for the title.
