Vidarbha will be taking on Baroda for the Elite, Cross Pool game at the Gujrat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground, Vadodara.
The match commences at 9:00 AM (IST) between the two sides.
Baroda and Vidarbha were meant to take on one another earlier but the match was abandoned due to rain. Both sides currently have 14 points on board. However, it's Baroda who's ahead with a better net run rate. Vidarbha and Baroda are taking on Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh and are termed as the favourites to win those games before they clash against one another.
As per forecasts, rain won't have a say in the upcoming fixture. Nevertheless, it will be the soaring heat which is expected to be close to 40 Degrees Celsius which can end up testing the players from both sides.
The wicket at the State Fertilizer Corporation Ground has been anything but batting friendly. Apart from Delhi scoring 299 against Odisha at the same venue, other teams have struggled to pile on the runs and the average score while batting first is just 195 in the five games at this venue this season.
Whoever wins the toss might be looking to chase.
VID vs BRD Dream11 Possible Playing Eleven
Baroda- A Waghmode, K Devdhar (WK), V Solanki, D Hooda (C), S Singh, Y Pathan, N Rathva, B Bhatt, S Sopariya, R Arothe, A Sheth
Vidarbha- F Fazal, W Jaffer (C), G Satish, J Sharma (WK), A Wakhare, A Sarwate, A Wadkar, A Karnewar, A Wakhade, D Nalkande, Y Thakur
Faiz Fazal, Wasim Jaffer, and Ganesh Satish are the frontline batsmen from Vidarbha's locker who can grind out big runs for their side.
Swapnil Singh has been in good form lately, as the left-arm spinner scalped four wickets in the last game against Odisha. Singh also has the credentials of contributing with the bat. Yusuf Pathan's power-hitting and recent form certainly put him in contention of starring against Vidarbha.Yash Thakur has the knack of taking wickets with his medium pace and will be expected to do the same in the forthcoming fixture.
Injury Update- Krunal Pandya's availability for Baroda is still a matter of concern.
Captian options- Faiz Fazal, Yusuf Pathan, Ganesh Satish
Vice-captain options- Wasim Jaffer, Swapnil Singh, Yash Thakur
