Defending champions Mumbai face Saurashtra in the upcoming fixture of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-2020. After suffering a shock loss at the hands of Chhattisgarh in their first completed game of the season, Mumbai will look to get back to winning ways while their opponents also will try to bounce back from their heavy-defeat against Hyderabad. Having said that, Mumbai will undoubtedly start this game as overwhelming favorites considering the abundance of talent in their squad.

Partly Cloudy conditions with decent chances of rain and temperature ranging around 24 degree Celsius expected during the game.
Due to the overcast conditions, there will be plenty of assistance for the pacers early in the contest while the spinners will gradually come into play as the match progresses.
Shardul Thakur and Siddhesh Lad join the Mumbai squad after their participation in the Board President’s XI vs South Africa practice match. Similarly, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja also returns to the Saurashtra team.
Probable Playing XI:
Shreyas Iyer will be expected to lead the side with aplomb. His presence fills the team with an added sense of confidence and assurance. This team has a formidable batting unit that includes the likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Aditya Tare, whilst Dhawal Kulkarni and Shardul Thakur will provide the goods in the bowling department.
Jay Gokul Bista, Shreyas Iyer (C), Shubham Ranjane, Suryakumar Yadav, Aditya Tare (WK), Siddhesh Lad, Shivam Dube, Shardul Thakur, Shams Mulani, Dhawal Kulkarni, Tushar Deshpande
Sheldon Jackson is their most accomplished batter and the onus will lie on him to anchor the innings. Skipper Jaydev Unadkat will lead the way with the bowl in hand and should land some decisive blows to give his side a fighting chance against their mighty opponents.
Harvik Desai (WK), Sheldon Jackson, Aarpit Vasavada, Chirag Jani, Jay Chauhan, Kamlesh Makvana, Vishvaraj Jadeja, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, Jaydev Unadkat (c), Prerak Mankad, Agnivesh Ayachi
Shreyas Iyer and Sheldon Jackson are must-haves due to their batting prowess and ability to score massive runs when on song. Aditya Tare, as well as Aarpit Vasavada, are important players for their respective sides, thus would be excellent additions to your Dream11 Team.
