The KAR vs UP live streaming will commence at 12:00 PM (IST). Ahead of the crucial contest, here is our KAR vs UP Dream11 prediction, KAR vs UP Dream11 team and KAR vs UP Dream11 top picks.
Both sides have had a contrasting start to their Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy campaign this year. Karnataka have been the more dominant team out of the two. Having played four matches in the competition so far, the Karun Nair-led side have lost only a single fixture.
They are currently placed at the second position in the Elite A Group. Uttar Pradesh have visibly struggled in accumulating winning points on a regular basis. In spite of having a star-studded line-up, they have managed to register only a single win so far in the tournament and are languishing at the penultimate position on the table. At this crucial juncture of the league, it is vital for the Uttar Pradesh team to win matches on a consistent basis to stay relevant in the tournament.
