Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground, Vadodara, 17th October at 09:00 AM IST
On the final day of league stage matches, Round 4 Elite Group A and B match is to be played between Maharashtra and Vadodara at the Gujarat State Fertilizer Corporation Ground in Vadodara.
Both teams had an indifferent tournament this time around and would be looking to end their disappointing campaign on a winning note. Rain was the major spoiler for both these sides as Maharashtra were affected 5 times, whereas, Vidarbha got affected thrice.
Here is the VID vs HIM today match prediction.
With the tournament heading towards its business end, both teams would be looking to lend a chance to their bench strength.
Skipper Wasim Jaffer sat out for Vidarbha in the last game after regular failures with the bat and is expected to be benched again. Faiz Fazal will lead the side again.
Darshan Nalkande could get a go in the eleven in place of Yash Rathod.
The two games which they have won in this season so far were their previous two games.
If they look to check their bench strength, all-rounder Swapni Gugale who hasn’t got a single game so far in this tournament could come in for Mukesh Choudhary.
Left-arm medium-pacer Divyang Himganekar could come in as well at the expense of S Kazi or Samad Fallah.
