KER vs VID Dream11 Match Prediction: Kerala will be playing hosts to Vadarbha at St’ Xavier’s College for a Group B fixture in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Kerala is on the back of two consecutive wins in the tournament and will hope to continue that positive run when they take on Vidarbha this week. Kerala’s most recent win was over Manipur by 75 runs in which Sudhesan Midhun’s spell of four wickets for five runs, and Sachin Baby’s 35 ball 48 were the talking points of the game.
However, their upcoming game against Vidarbha will be much more challenging as they themselves have won three games on the bounce.
