Announcing the team, KSLTA Honorary Secretary Maheshwar Rao said: “There have been some exemplary performances from the Karnataka boys in the recently concluded ITF Dharwad Men’s WTT and the on-going ITF Davangere Men’s WTT. Considering the form and talent, we had a re-look at the team before finalising the same.”
