Bihar has endured a very disappointing season, as they are at the bottom of the points table with eight losses from eight matches. Tripura have fared a bit better, with three victories from the same number of matches and having lost the other five. Based on current form as such, they would start as the favorites to emerge victorious from this encounter with Bihar finding their individual introduction in the domestic circuit a bit difficult as of now.
Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20
Bihar vs Tripura
KL Saini Ground, Jaipur
16 October, 2019
9:00 AM IST
Sunny weather with the temperature ranging around 23 degrees Celsius and absolutely no chances of rain is expected during the course of the game.
A fairly good batting track with ample assistance to the batsmen during the entire course of the game could be on the cards for tomorrow.
Predicted Playing XI:
Shivam Kumar and Chiranjivi Kumar will add solidity to the batting order early on whilst the likes of Sarfaraz Ashraf and Vikash Ranjan comprise a decent enough middle-order. However, Babul Kumar would have to lead the side with conviction if he hopes for his side to overturn their ongoing run of despicable form.
Shivam Kumar, Utkarsh Bhaskar, Chiranjivi Kumar, MD Rahmatullah, Vikash Ranjan(w), Vipul Krishna, Sarfaraz Ashraf, Shashi Shekar, Babul Kumar(c), S Gani, Shasheem Rathour
Udiyan Bose has been in a good run of form lately and forms the bedrock for Tripura’s batting lineup right at the top as well. Pratyush Singh and Milind Kumar would be banked upon to steer the middle order. Sanjay Majumder and Ajoy Sarkar would be the other key players for them.
Bishal Ghosh, Udiyan Bose, Tanmay Mishra, Pratyush Singh, Milind Kumar, Nirupam Sen(w), Manisankar Murasingh(c), Harmeet Singh, Ajoy Sarkar, Sanjay Majumder, Neelambuj Vats
Udiyan Bose and Milind Kumar played extremely well for Tripura in their previous encounter against the Railways. Whilst Bose notched 85 runs and provided a solid base for the middle-order, the latter bagged up 65 runs and carried on from where Bose left the innings. Both of them should be included in the Dream XI side. Babul Kumar and Shasheem Rathour were in a good touch for Bihar against Services too. Rathour specifically, scored 71 runs and he along with Babul, who racked up 66 runs carried on their responsibilities to help Bihar attain a respectable total of 267 runs eventually. All these players would advisably be definite inclusions in the fantasy team.
