Team officials told PTI that the former India skipper will play in Karnataka's Elite Group B home match, starting in Mysore on Sunday. "Yes, Rahul Dravid is playing," Karnataka team manager R Ananth said.
The top-order batsman has been in dismal form in the last few months and would be looking forward to turn things around. Dravid has managed just 268 runs in the last seven Test matches.
Karnataka will be led by flamboyant batsman Robin Uthappa.
