Ranji Trophy: Karnataka favourites against Vidarbha, Umesh Yadav availability in doubt
Kolkata, Dec 16 (CRICKETNMORE) - Eight-time champions Karnataka will be hot favourites against Vidarbha who are still not sure of the services of India speedster Umesh Yadav when the two sides clash in the semifinal of the Ranji Trophy at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
Karnataka, playing a semi tie after a gap of two seasons, have been the in-form team with captain R Vinay Kumar leading from the front.
The way they pummelled Mumbai, who suffered only their fifth innings defeat ever in the tournament, underlined their aura of invincibility ahead of their last-four match. Starting their season with three successive outright wins, Karnataka edged out Delhi to finish top of Group A.
