KL Rahul, who returned from South Africa just a night ago, was run-out after facing just three deliveries. Excellent start for Saurashtra. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.

08:23 hrs IST: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the Vijay Hazare Trophy final between Karnataka and Saurashtra.

Saurashtra will be wary of the threat Karnataka opener Mayank Agarwal pose to them. Agarwal is the tournament’s highest scorer with 633 runs. With the likes of Karun Nair and Stuart Binny in the side, Karnataka look a strong unit.

Focus however will be on Indian national team cricketer Ravindra Jadeja who has been out of favour in the limited-overs international team for some time now. India’s Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara is captain of the Saurashtra team.
