Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground in Vadodara, 12th October at 09:00 AM IST
Round 10, Elite Group A and B’s next encounter will be played between Punjab and Uttar Pradesh at the Gujarat State Fertilizer Ground in Vadodara.
Punjab has been doing really well as they have won 3 and lost only solitary game out of 8 which has helped them cling on the second spot on the points table. Their only loss this season came at the hands of Himachal Pradesh by 25 runs.
On the other hand, after a string of abandoned games, UP has definitely found success in their last two fixtures where they beat Baroda and Delhi by 7 and 5 wickets respectively. They are currently placed fifth on the points table and would be looking to continue with their merry ways.
Here is the PUN vs UP today match prediction.
Star batsman Shubman Gill is not available for Punjab as he is included in the Indian Test side which is taking on South Africa.
Skipper Mandeep Singh was rested in the last game but is expected to feature in this fixture.
Sharad Lumba will make way if Mandeep Singh returns.
Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul and Mayank Markande will be the main bowlers for Punjab.
Shivam Mavi was dropped for Mohsin Khan in the last game.
Khan delivered with 3 wickets for 49 runs from 10 overs which will help him keep his place in the eleven.
Youngster Aryan Juyal has got those 20’s and 30’s to his name but has not been able to convert those starts into a big score. He will be looking for a good knock here.
No changes in the eleven are expected after two wins in a row.
