Himachal Pradesh vs Mumbai
Ranji Trophy 2019/20
HPCA stadium, Dharamshala

HIM vs MUM Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
Courtesy a mind-boggling triple century from Sarfaraz Khan, Mumbai ensured they got the first-innings lead in a thrilling encounter. Mumbai, who are off to a terrible start this season, needed those three points desperately and did a great job on the final day against Uttar Pradesh. Himachal Pradesh registered one win in their 5 games and picked up 3 points in two others. Hasn’t been a bad start for them, but they need to pick up big time to throw a decent challenge for the top five positions.
In India, there is no place apart from the HPCA stadium of Dharamshala on a higher altitude when compared to the other stadiums. The temperatures are going to be less than 10 degrees throughout the game and could get increasingly difficult, especially for the Mumbaikars, to cope with those conditions.
The fast bowlers will find a lot of movement and zip through the track, which is how the HPCA track has fared over the years. Any score in excess of 300 batting first could pose a big challenge.
Probable Playing XIs:
Jay Gokul Bista, Bhupen Lalwani, Shashank Attarde, Hardik Tamore, Siddhesh Lad, Sarfaraz Khan, Shams Mulani, Aditya Tare (C & WK), Akash Parkar, Tushar Deshpande, Royston Dias.
Priyanshu Khanduri, Prashant Chopra, Sumeet Verma, Ankit Kalsi (c), Nikhil Gangta, Rishi Dhawan, Ankush Bains (wk), Akash Vashist, Pankaj Jaiswal, Vaibhav Arora, Kanwar Abhinay Singh
HIM vs MUM Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
Siddhesh Lad: One of the finest young talents in Mumbai right now, Siddhesh Lad has been churning out some valuable runs for the side this season. He chipped in with a brilliant 98 in the previous game and is looking positive for more runs.
Sarfaraz Khan: After that sensational triple ton, it is a no-brainer that Sarfaraz Khan is a must in the team. His tally for this season in the Ranji Trophy is 416, which includes another half-century besides the triple century.
Rishi Dhawan: In these cold and difficult conditions, the medium pace of Rishi Dhawan could cause some damage. He can contribute with the bat as well, making him a contender for the multiplier position.
Vaibhav Arora: With 19 wickets to his credit, Vaibhav Arora is having a great time in the Ranji Trophy this season. The conditions in Dharamshala are going to be perfect for his style, which could make up for some interesting duels.
