Time running out for Bihar:
Having lost all their games leading up to this match, Bihar know they are running on thin lines in their bid to qualify for the next round.
As things stand, Bihar are currently propping up the table in Elite Group C and had the worst net run rate in the group as well.
If Bihar fail to win this game, and some results go against them, they will be on the brink of elimination.

What to expect from the pitch?
The wicket at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium has always been an easy zone for the batsman to carve out their shots. While the short boundaries and the dry outfield all indicate towards more than a decent scoring match.

Bengal Team News:
There are no injury updates as of now, and we expect all the players to be available for selection.
But considering how Bengal have fared so far, the coach may stick with the usual combination we have seen in this tournament.
That said, star wicket-keeper Batsman Wriddhiman Saha is away on national duties with India and won’t be playing in this match. So expect Shreevats Goswami to keep the wickets in this match.
Ashok Dinda has been suffering from an illness of late but should be fine for this game.

Shreevats Goswami: He is set to start the match after Saha’s departure to the Indian team. He is in good touch as well and should be in your team.
