Dindigul, 23 August at 1:30 PM IST
In the second game of Duleep Trophy, India Red take on India Blue at NPR College Ground in Dindigul.
In the tournament opener between India Green and India Red, the contest ended in a tame draw after an enthralling three days of cricket. Sanjay Ramaswamy, Baba Aparajith and Baba Indrajith notched 100+ scores while Rajneesh Gurbani was the best bowler in the game returning with figures of 7-81 in a single innings.
India Red, having played a game already in the competition, would look to put pressure on their counterparts for the fixture and try to come out on top in their last attempt to seal a final’s spot. On the other hand, India Blue would be looking to start their campaign on a positive note.
Pitch conditions: In the last game, the surface was difficult for run-scoring and had something for the quick bowlers.
Last competitive FC result at the venue: India Red 337 & 262/1 drew with India Green 309 – Aug 17-20, Duleep Trophy 2018
