Belgaum: Karnataka with an eye on the points tally will go all out for an outright win against Andhra in the South Zone Ranji league match beginning at the Union Gymkhana ground on Wednesday.The strategy of the visitors, high on morale after their impressive innings victory over Goa last week, will be to frustrate the home team's intentions.Andhra coach K S Bhaskar Ramamurthy said the morale of his boys was high after the authoritative win over Goa. Skipper Amit Pathak and Prasad Reddy, who scored a double century and century respectively against Goa, and also posted a record partnership, were expected to repeat their feat against Karnataka, he added.Karnataka's cricket manager and former Indian stumper S M H Kirmani said that though his team lacked any stars, ''almost all the boys in the line-up are stars in the making''.Talking to UNI at the nets, he said middle-order batsman A R Mahesh was sure to make his Ranji debut on in place of Vijay Bhardwaj, who was away in Indore playing for President's XI against the touring Zimbabweans.Andhra team had a long stint at the nets this morning, while Karnataka took to the nets only in the afternoon. Karnataka have eight points from two outings against Hyderabad and Tamil Nadu respectively, while Andhra have earned 11 points from two matches against Kerala and Goa.The teams :
Karnataka:
J Arun Kumar (captain), Sujith Somasundar, Mithun Beerala, Barrington Rowland, Thilak Naidu (wicket-keeper), Dodda Ganesh, Mansoor Ali Khan, Santosh Vadeyaraj, Dharmichand, Rajshekar Shanbal, Anand Yalvigi, Sunil Kumar, Sham Ponnappa, A R Mahesh and B Akhil.
