Match Predictions for Haryana vs Kerala

Kerala is the favorite for the win. They had performed beautifully in the SMAT and would want to continue the momentum into this tournament. Whereas Haryana has a good squad as well, but they will miss the services of their skipper, Harshal Patel, who is on national duty in Australia. Overall, we can expect a good start to the latest edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
