Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019
Jaipuria Vidhalaya Ground, Jaipur
October 3rd, 2019
9:00 AM local IST
Two teams with absolutely contrasting run of form behind them will face off each other in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019. Gujarat have secured four victories in as many matches, and have a great chance to get closer to a spot in the knockouts with a victory over here. Bihar though, are yet to win even a single out of the three matches that they have played so far and are at the bottom of the points table. They might have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to stop a high-flying Gujarat side tomorrow.
Mostly sunny weather with merely 9% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 25 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the encounter.
The pitch over here is usually considered to be a high-scoring ground, and hence another match where the batsmen would avail benefits due to the nature of the track could be on the cards tomorrow.
Predicted Playing XI:
Priyank Panchal would be the most key batsman for this Gujarat side, as his incredible run-scoring prowess and the current run of form almost guarantees a good start whilst batting for the team. Manpreet Juneja adds solidity to the middle order whereas Axar Patel’s ability to accelerate the flow of runs could come in handy as well. Piyush Chawla and Roosh Kalaria will be the crucial bowlers for Panchal’s team.
Kathan Patel, Priyank Panchal (C), Dhruv Raval (WK), Bhargav Merai, Manpreet Juneja, Axar Patel, Piyush Chawla, Roosh Kalaria, Chintan Gaja, Arzan Nagwaswalla, Rujul Bhatt
Ashutosh Aman will have quite a responsibility up his shoulders to somehow prevent his team from ending up in further doldrums after an already shaky start to the domestic season. MD Rahmatullah will have to set the pace of the innings and hold the batting unit together in the middle-order.
Vikash Ranjan (WK), Shasheem Rathour, Babul Kumar, MD Rahmatullah, K Kumar, Aditya Kumar, Ashutosh Aman (C) , Vivek Kumar, Rohan Kumar, S Quadri, Nukku Singh
Priyank Panchal recently scored 60 runs and looked really comfortable against the South African bowlers in the practice game where was representing the Board President’s XI. He is undoubtedly the best batsmen amongst the ones who will take part in this contest. Roosh Kalaria has bagged 11 wickets so far and hence should be a must-pick in this Dream XI side. Axar Patel can earn a considerable number of points through his dual skills, and hence should definitely walk into this fantasy team.
