MUM vs SAU Dream11 Prediction: In the Elite Group D match of the Ranji Trophy 2022, Mumbai will be locking horns with Saurashtra on 17 February (Thursday) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Both these teams are coming into this match after facing quite contrasting fortunes in the previous edition of the tournament. Mumbai had a horrendous performance during the Ranji Trophy 2019-20 season where they even failed to qualify for the quarterfinals and managed to win just a single game. On the other hand, Saurashtra were crowned as the winners of the previous edition of the domestic competition as they got the better of Bengal in the finals through securing a first innings lead. However, both these teams will be aiming to play their best brand of cricket right from the start of this Ranji Trophy season.
