Mumbai, December 14 -17 at 09:30 AM IST
Forty-one-time champions, Mumbai haven’t had the best of runs in this Ranji season. They are struggling at the bottom-second spot in the combined Group A and B standing. In a total of four fixtures so far, Mumbai has managed three draws along with a crushing 9 wickets defeat against Gujarat. They would be looking to resurrect their campaign when they host Baroda in the upcoming fixture scheduled at the iconic Wankhede Stadium from Friday.
Baroda is placed fifth in the league table with one win, one loss and three draws out of five games. They started their campaign with 9 wickets loss against Gujarat and came back strongly against Maharashtra, Vidarbha and Saurashtra and managed a draw each. However, in their last encounter against Chhattisgarh, Baroda registered a massive 9 wickets win and would be looking to carry the momentum when they face low flying Mumbai at their courtyard.
Baroda gets a boost in the likes of Hardik Pandya ahead of the clash with Mumbai. The regular all-rounder in the national team was away from the field since September following a back injury. He will return to the cricket field against Mumbai on Friday.
Baroda also has Yusuf Pathan, pacer Lukman Meriwala, Rishi Arothe and Kedar Devdhar in their ranks and will definitely give a tough fight Mumbai. They will be led by Kedar Devdhar.
Mumbai, struggling at the bottom, will undergo a few changes against Baroda in hope of change in fortune. Mumbai played their last match under the leadership of Siddhesh Lad after Dhawal Kulkarni was ruled out of an injury. While there is no news about Kulkarni, Shreyas Iyer who is currently busy with India A tour in New Zealand is said to join the squad ahead of the Baroda clash. Also, Mumbai will be missing their former captain Suryakumar Yadav and Arman Jaffer after being dropped out of the squad.
