Surat, February 27, Wednesday at 10:00 AM IST
Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh will square off at CB Patel International Cricket Stadium, Surat against each other on Wednesday morning in the next Group B fixture of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019. Both the sides are placed in the middle of the group standings and desperately need a win here to remain in contention. The clash is set to begin at 10:00 AM IST tomorrow.
With two wins and two defeats in four encounters, fourth-placed Himachal Pradesh faces a do or die situation against Tamil Nadu. Their thumping nine wickets win over Bihar in the last encounter would have surely boosted their confidence but to remain in contention, Himachal needs to win both of the remaining games.
Tamil Nadu (8 points) and Himachal Pradesh (8 points) share equal points and number of wins but Himachal has played one game extra than Tamil Nadu.
With two wins and one defeat in three outings, Tamil Nadu is placed fifth in the group B standing. After facing 53 runs drubbing at the hands of Rajasthan in the opening encounter, Tamil Nadu have managed back to back wins against Bihar by 6 wickets and Gujarat by 1 run are still in the race of qualification.
After an average outing with the bat, spinners did a very commendable job for Tamil Nadu in defending just 125 runs on the board. Despite Chirag Gandhi’s unbeaten 68 of 66, Gujarat fell short by just 1 run as the last man Hardik Patel was run out off the penultimate delivery and four points were offered to Tamil Nadu. Now, they would be looking to grab another win and cruise up the table to clinch the top spots.
