A rampaging Rajasthan will keep in mind the unpredictability factor that has defined Karnataka's season so far in the Ranji Trophy, when they meet in their quarterfinal starting here Tuesday.
Rajasthan have been on a roll in the group stage, winning seven games, including three with bonus points, and finishing at the top of the table with 51 points from nine outings.
The hosts, who were placed third with 27 points, won three games and lost two, besides three drawn games.
They beat Maharashtra, Railways and Chhattisgarh, but lost to Saurashtra and Baroda, making them one of the most unpredictable teams this season.
Krishnamurthy Siddharth and Dega Nischal, who have scored 651 and 613 runs, have been the only consistent batsmen for the home team in the group stage. Nischal and Siddharath have scored three and two centuries.
In contrast, Karnataka's bowling hasn't been that impressive with the think-tank making far too many changes. Ronit More, Shreyas Gopal and Jagadeesha Suchith have been their most successful wicket-takers.
More has scalped 29 wickets from six matches and Gopal 26 in eight outings, while Suchith bagged 24 in five games.
Abhimanyu Mithun (17), Krishnappa Gowtham (13) and Prasidh Krishna (12) also have been among wickets.
