Tamil Nadu sit atop the points table of the Elite Group C with three victories from the same number of matches, as they have notched 12 points so far and are well ahead of others in the group. Bengal, though, are at the seventh spot with four points from two encounters, and it would be quite a contest for them to face Tamil Nadu who seem to be the most well-strengthened team in the group so far.
Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20
Jaipuria Vidyalaya Ground, Jaipur

Mostly sunny weather with barely 10% chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 26 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.
The pitch has been of great assistance to the batsmen due to its seemingly flat nature and hence chasing shouldn’t be an issue in this particular match.
Predicted Playing XI:
Abhimanyu Easwaran will have to do the bulk of the scoring at the top order whereas the likes of Shreevats Goswami and Manoj Tiwari will add experience in the middle order. Ashoke Dinda and Shahbaz Nadeem will be key bowlers for Bengal.
Abhimanyu Easwaran (C), Abhishek Raman, Shreevats Goswami (WK), Manoj Tiwary, AnustupMajumdar, Arnab Nandi, Sudip Chatterjee, Ishan Porel, Ashoke Dinda, Shahbaz Ahmed, Akash Deep
N Jagadeesan has been in a good run of form in recent times but the credible strength for Tamil Nadu comes in their middle order that comprises of the likes of Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik, two absolute stalwarts in the domestic circuit. Washington Sundar will be under scanner as he has been in the national team’s plans in recent times.
N Jagadeesan, Abhinav Mukund, Hari Nishanth, Baba Aparajith, Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik (C & WK), Washington Sundar, T Natarajan, Murugan Ashwin, M Mohammed, K Vignesh
Vijay Shankar has performed quite well in the previous match and Dinesh Karthik has the prowess to showcase his quality against Bengal tomorrow. Hence, they should be must-picks in the XI. Abhimanyu Easwaran, Murugan Ashwin and Manoj Tiwari are others who should be drafted in the side as well.
